The Wild Side

What a busy weekend this has been. I have different gardens here at Bois D' Arc and I have native plants planted in various areas. I planted some Wild Plums a few years back to give my garden a windbreak and to also give some of the wildlife in the area some food. The wild plums are now about 6 few tall in front of the garden and spreading. I got a bumper crop of plums so I decided to pick some of them and try making some Wild plum jelly. It ended up be rather easy to prepare and has a lovely color. The sample leftover taste test tells me it will be a good jelly.
