The Van plum tree that fell flat last year during the hurricane winds has
fruit set. We just trimmed off a little more than 1/3 of the length of the
branches and staked it up.  It came through the winter fine and has more
fruit on it than its neighbor.  I guess if you are a plant and you think you
are going to die you might put everything into fruit when you can! 


Now the question is: How do I thin plums ??  We never had enough to even
think about thinning before this.  

Thanks for the help!
