charmcity balconygarden - welcome, and thanks for following the blog..
It's been a long wait for having the opportunity to can something from one of the plum trees on the property, but today at last - one of the trees provided about 13 lbs. of ripe (but damaged) orbs of juicy goodness which was used to make the first jelly of the season. Most were damaged by the larvae of the plum curculio, but tedious prepping and painstaking work paid off in the end with 4 jars of colorful plum jelly , as indicated in the picture...I can't wait to try it on toast in the morning. :)
*EDIT* - Since RandomGardener asked about what to use for dealing with the plum curculio, i'm proud to say that the Extension Service shared the information with me over a telephone conversation one day last week. Imidan is the product to use, and you can bet that i'll be using it next year. :)
