I know this is going to sound stupid, but the thing I'm most bummed about is our plums. We were gone for 3 weeks and in that time our plums ripened and then rotted. We ate maybe 3 good ones. Butters cried and said he didn't want them to be rotted and yucky. I was bummed because that means no Prudden House Plum wine for this year and all that wasted free fruit is such a sad sight.
So, instead, we moved on and bought blueberries from Costco and they are fermenting right now!
