My first thought when I saw this word for this week was the fruit. In the back of my grandparent's house there were four of the best plum trees ever. The moment they ripened I would hang out beneath them eating until I was about to pop! It seemed like there was always something ready to pick around Papa's place - watermelons, cherries, pears, apples, peaches, and a variety of nuts (that were harder to eat on the spot). What a fun place it was to grow up!
