The 2008 Santa Rosa Plum Harvest at Desert Farne

On the tree

In the bowl
The birds had actually gotten to about two-thirds of the plums already. I have a small bowl of them for my neighbors who have been watering to keep my garden alive and this bowl went to brunch today.

Thank you Mother Earth and Father Sun and all whose labor made the planting and tending of this tree possible. I gave a thank-offering of prayer tobacco as part of the harvest ritual.

And I ate and it was good.

Delightfully, wonderfully good. A fine addition to our brunch. And, yes, thankful prayers for the culinary wonders given to us.

Plums... yum.

Sorry about the birds but St Francis would say they must eat too.

I do not begrudge the birds and insects their meals. fortunately. But next year there may be netting over the trees.
