But back to the fresh fruit and vegies.  I find I have 11 plum trees.  Whoops.  Included are Satsuma, green and yellow gage, Angelina, Damson and other plums, names which don’t come to mind.  Not quite sure how many apple trees, some of which are Gravenstien, Golden and Red Delicious, Abas, Pink Lady, etc.
