So our property has a good number of fruit bearing trees on it - all right now in various stages of bloom/ripening.
In the middle of the front yard, all by its lonesome (some would say - randomly) is a plum tree. Not to be mistaken with the pretty plum cherry trees in the back this one is gnarled and craggy and in fall it looks downright malicious. Great at halloween.
In the spring it bears more fruit than it can bear. To be repetitive and redundant.
Can you see the break? No? It's over there on the right.
Here's a close up:
So how much was lost, you ask?
There are starving people all over the world and I've got a plum tree that can't manage its own bounty.
Argh. Good thing we weren't relying on that branch for much more than snack food.
Any idea what we should be on the scar to ward off infection?
