I picked four gallons of Mexican Plums off of our smallest tree yesterday, didn’t even seem to make a dent in what was on the tree. Came outside this morning after the storms overnight, and discovered all these plums covering the ground and got another half gallon. A few good shakes of the tree, and we netted another gallon. Methinks some jelly making is in the near future.
My little girl is just too sweet. I have been kicking around names for almost a week now, and always seem to come back to the same one, so I guess that is the one I will choose. So everyone meet little Javelina (pronounced Have-a-Lean-a) Bacon. Javelina, because I really like the way it sounds, and is another name for peccary. Bacon, well, because she is marked like strips of bacon, of course.
