Pottawatamie Plum Jelly Part 1


How come the screen never looks the same after you put everything on? Anyway, here is us harvesting our plums for our Christmas jelly. We put several tarps down on the ground and then shake the dickens out of the tree. Voila! Then we gather up the tarps and dump all the plums into a basket! Guess what I get to do tomorrow? Juicing!
We are being bombarded by these little fruit fly/gnat things all over the neighborhood. I turned around and Ellie was just covered with them (as were we all). Be sure to enlarge the picture to get the whole effect. Don't worry, she cleaned right up.
