it didn't take but a second after i walked into the house with a purple plum for Sophie and Hannah to be out the door, down the steps, across the yard, into the chicken coop and scurrying up the tree branches.
it also didn't take long for the steers to hear those two girls in the tree and figure out what was going on and come a beggin at the pasture fence.
plums! we pruned one of the trees and there wasn't as much on it this year, but next year...look out!
these plums aren't making it into the freezer...they are being gobbled up just... like ...that.
