3 gallons of Green Gage plums.
3 gallons (10 bunches) of Flame Grapes.
1 pint of Sequoia Strawberries.

My location is not warm enough thoughout the day for Flame Grapes to ripen uniformly -- which they do in places with warmer days and nights. So a "bunch" from my orchard is 1/3 ripe, 1/3 under-ripe, and 1/3 over-ripe. I toss the over-ripe ones since they are starting to mold. Some of the remainder are eaten fresh but the majority are made into jam. Just make preserves, but add 1/4 cup sugar to each 4 cups of fruit. For my grapes, this is a necessity because the unripe grapes are too tart when boiled down into a plain preserve.

Mskitty:
Ha-ha-ha!
I never thought of that!
I had more than 2 foot long weeds in my sloopy backyard that my 3 kids and I pulled but only maybe 40 lbs. It's been neglected so long.

Paradisi, congratulations on the Harvest!

Today I picked:
Last 2 gallons of Green Gage plums
3 gallons of Panamint nectarines
1 pint of Bababerry raspberries

The plums will probably be eaten fresh.
The nectarines will be dried.
The raspberries are already gone!

Today we got one nectarine.

nothing special except I live in Australia and we are in the middle of our winter. We only ever get fairly mild winters where we live, but for a nectarine to ripen at this time of year is very very strange. Its at least a month earlier than last year (which was extremely early) and I would guess its thanks to global warming.

We've even had to cover our tree to protect it from fruit fly - something we normally don't have to do until september.

The plums not eaten became 1/2 lb dried and 3 pints of preserves.
The nectarines became 5 pints of preserves.
I'd make raspberry preserves but they never make it in the house

Oh yum! Freezing is so much easier than canning anyway. Our peaches are freestone, so my wife just cuts a great circle around each one, twists, and presto, two peach halves! There's already bags of frozen peach halves in the freezer. Come winter, it will be vanilla ice cream with sliced frozen peaches and chocolate sauce.

thats what these were the freestone. very easy to pit! im gonna do the peach jam. it just mad me mad the recipe that i use calls for 6 lbs of peaches and only makes 5 and 1/2 cups.....thats 2 and 1/2 pint jars. so i had to wait till i had more peaches to do 2 or 3 batches. btw they are easier to peel also. i made a peach cobbler and ate a huge piece. oh boy was it yummy!

Hmm ... I never peel mine. If making jam or preserve, I use a large knife to cut wedges out right over the pot. I like the flavor of the skins in the preserve. By the time it boils down, they have fragmented into unrecognizable little pieces.
