Plums

We have, over the last few years, planted more and more fruit trees. The property had a few, apple and pear trees. But they are in really bad shape, just not taken care of over their lives. We are working on pruning those and getting them back into share, but have planted more of our own. And this year we have plums. They are so cute. This particular plum tree is three years old. Last year we had a late frost and it killed the little buds, so we had no plums last year. We are all so excited to see the "fruits" of our labor, and they just taste so much more delicious because we grew them ourselves. The boys loved them, and ate all but two, one for me and one for dh, Jackson. We still have probably a dozen more on the tree, but this batch is gone. I think next year we will plant a few more plum trees.

3 years and already bearing fruit, that's great. Do they take up a lot of space?

No they do not take up a lot of space. OK I should say that the tree is only three years old, so I am not sure how much it will grow. Also I don't remember if it was a dwarf tree or not. :-)
