The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
The One plum tree got its name originally three years ago.
For obvious reasons.
It only bore one plum.
It was like the nut tree
I had a little nut tree
nothing would it bear
but a silver nutmeg
and a golden pear.
The following year it had three plums. A two hundred percent increase.
This year it seems that it’s gone back to its original name.
I saw a plum the other day but can’t even find it now.
It’s got to the stage where the tree will be leaving us. (See what I did there?)
I’m at my wits end for ideas.
So I’ve decided to give it one last possibility.
Does anyone out there in blog land have any hard and fast suggestions?
The tree is about five years old. We planted it. It has never borne much fruit at all. Literally a handful of plums in the entire time.
So if you think you can tell us what’s going wrong with a story of a zero fruit tree turned good then I’ll give it another chance but otherwise it’s going to be firewood.
