Plants - Plums 1

Here’s my dad, the suburban farmer, with one of his plum trees so laden with fruit he had to prop up the branches with boards!  He is amazing, tending to a small orchard of sorts:  pears, apples, plums, peaches, apricots, hazelnuts, spread out around his suburban lawn.  In addition to all this there is the huge vegetable garden!  This is fun for him, every growing season there are setbacks and triumphs.  It’s always a combination of skill, hard work, and the whims of nature.
