Last summer, we found a marvelous stand of plums fruiting along the highway just north of the Tennessee border.
We ate some, turned others into jam, and saved all the pits and stratified them in the fridge.
They were really good fruit!
Now almost every single one is germinating, so we should be able to offer some beautiful Prunus americana seedlings in the nursery within a year.
How cool is that?
All that to say, yesterday we recorded a video of how to sprout plum pits and why it’s worthwhile. That will go live this afternoon on YouTube.
This morning I’m headed to a friend’s place to help butcher some hogs. Got some good people helping and “many hands make light work.”
And sometimes bacon.
Catch you all soon.
