Carrots are coming in thick - this is 1/3 of today's harvest.

Prune plums are starting to ripen. Yum. They are supposed to be self-thinning, but the drop-off has stopped and I'm wondering if we should do more. The bunch below is on our youngest tree (of four). Last year it had 4 blossoms -- no fruit. This year all the branches are loaded.

I love plum wine. And plum brandy.

Mmmmm.

But if I tried it, I'd wind up with plum vinegar, for sure.

I have fond memories of visiting my grandmother's home in the UP of Michigan. She had a prune plum tree in the backyard. We used to eat them until we were almost sick. I love them to this day. Hard to find in the grocery stores.

The ground finally thawed enough to allow harvesting of carrots again. We hadn't been able to do this since January, because the unusually mild winter left the edibles bed with too little snow cover and the ground froze solid.

This is about 10% of what was left in the bed. The four carrots closest to the front of the box had pulpy tops; the rest are OK. They're not as good as usual this year: less tender and not as juicy and sweet.
