The Bounty of Summer

I am going to miss our stone fruit trees when I move: the peaches, the apricots, the plums, nectarines .........!
We have several trees, and all of them have been loaded to the breaking point this summer. In fact, most summers are like this. It is hard for me to remember a summer when it wasn't this way. First the apricots ripen, which we can. Then the plums, which are made into jam (one of Dad's favorite kinds). The nectarines and peaches ripen almost simultaneously, which leads to a hectic week or two when we try to take advantage of as much as we can!
Now we have buckets and buckets of fruit in the kitchen, all waiting to be processed. Yummy!
