My damson plums are blossoming!

They are called krikon here.

I hope the bees and bumblebees find them and that it doesn’t get too cold for them this early in the season.

The wild prune trees around here don’t have fruit every year and hardly any this year, but the tree we got from the Nicks about 16 years ago always has lots of delicious prunes.

Wash and pit the prunes.

Add sweetener if necessary and enjoy – like topping off a bowl of oatmeal porridge.
