Plums Galore!

To say out one, lone plum tree is very happy would be a huge understatement!!  It is becoming impossible to keep finding new ways to use them all up before they go bad!

Two huge bowls of plums just two days ago.  It seems that we are pulling this many in every other day!  I have been baking up a storm!!

Plum Buckle-uses 7 cups of chopped plums.

I found this recipe on Allrecipes:

Banana Plum Bread

This recipe also came from All recipes:
Both these recipes went over extremely well with the family.  The Buckle lasted just under 24 hours and the bread disappeared in an afternoon!  Yummy!!  Well…back to the yard to pick more plums!

Retiring Dishcloths

My oldest daughter decided to organize the linen closet.  She came to me with a stack of dishcloths and said that there were too many.

These we decided were too stained to keep using I the kitchen so they now live in the rag bucket.  Many more years of service for them!

Quaker Yarn Stretcher Progress

Even as the rows get longer and longer, and the time to complete each row becomes longer, I find I am having trouble putting this project down!  The yarn has such great color changes I feel I must make it to the next change before I can stop.

I have finally made it to the pink section.  I wasn’t sure I was going to like it as I am not a pink loving person, but I LOVE it!!
