Picking Plums

We have very few large trees in our backyard and apart from the lemon tree that Kim just planted we have no fruit trees in our backyard either. However all our neighbors have large trees, including the one to the bag who has a rather large plum tree. Its so large that nearly half of the tree hangs in our yard. The branches are so laden with plums that they droop and sag quite a bit (so much so that the BBQ had to be moved). The plums are now starting to ripen and yesterday we had our first harvest. They still need to ripen a bit, but a couple that I've had indicate that it will indeed be a tasty summer.
