Which Plum Didn’t Get the Memo?


Our cactus plant has a bazillion of these plums on it, but apparently there was a miscommunication somewhere along the line.

    Judie do you use these plums? I can hardly wait for them to be available for purchasing again. I use in my smoothies.

    There’s one in every bunch!

  3. You have fresh prickly pears? How lucky! They are great. You have to use gloves when cutting them, and they have lots of grains inside, but they are so delicious and extremely healthy. It’s best to eat them cold.
    You can also pass the pulp through a medium sieve and make wonderful sauces or Popsicle with it.

      I tried with gloves, and then the gloves were all full of stickers! I’ll see what I can do to investigate their use. There is quite a crop out there. The cactus itself takes up about a fourth of our front yard and gets bigger every year.

      I think the deer and the javelina come at night to feast, but there are so many that they hardly make a dent in the number of plums.

    Hmmm. . .you don’t suppose. . .could that one be a “glum plum”? Just asking. . .

    “Back Alley”, eh? Bwa-ha-ha-ha
