Plums and Peaches
It was hot last night. Cooking dinner sounded unpleasant. Eating dinner didn't sound much better. We were headed out to OSH to bask in the air conditioning and get a replacement wheel for our gate when I noticed the fruit tree. It really needed picking. So I grabbed a washtub and we filled it full of the remaining peaches and plums. There were lots. It took a while to pick the tree and we realized that OSH was closing. So instead we headed back inside and I trimmed up the rest of the peaches and a dozen small plums and we had fresh fruit for dinner, all the while being powerfully reminded that this is what fruit should taste like. This is why people eat fruit. This is not the fruit you find in the store, not even in the little produce stands. This was good. Yum. We've got 5-7 pounds of plums left. We'll be giving a nice sack to our neighbor Radella and probably bringing a bunch to work.
