Yesterday, I was having a really hard time feeling motivated.

However, after dropping Kevin off at preschool and showering, I finally managed to accomplish some things.

One of the most exciting things that I did was to pick some of our wild plums. There were a lot more than I thought there were.

Here's a picture of my bucket:
They don't look like normal plums. They're about the size of cherries, and when they're ripe they're yellow. When they're purple, they're over ripe and bad. They taste okay, but they are much more tart than the purple variety.

I'm hoping to make some freezer jam out of it. It should be an interesting experiment.

We got some nice big, purple plums from my grandma the other day too. We turned half of them into freezer jam, and we're eating the rest. They're pretty tasty.

More canning. Meanwhile, our apples are starting to fall of the tree. We're about ready to start canning those too. Lots to do, and it's hard to always find the motivation. I'm working on it, though.
