We picked more plums. A lot were of them were over-ripe and splitting- and there were wasps around. |
Those are the best sort of plums to make plum jam.
That's what my pa-in-law does with his share of the crop- makes jam.
Wasps love rotting fruit - get drunk on it, then attack! Do you have a tree in your yard? We had a giant tree full of Baldwin apples in the yard of one of our rentals. Apple pie, apple crisp, apple cobbler, etc., all for "free". Yum!
We don't have trees of our own, but my pa-in-law has several.
We had a small orchard in the place where I grew up- plum, apple and pear. That was good.
There weren't any wasps last year - and so far only a few this year - wonder why?

I watched a program last month wasp and bee's are dying in mass no's every year, and apparently if they become extinct we will follow there fate scary !!
I think that it's the bees that are worrying - wasps don't pollinate, do they?
Yes your right my mistake, need to do my homework before commenting sorry.
I haven't seen many butterflies either.
