|We have a few acers of wild plums in northern Clay County. We have been harvesting plums for the past couple of years to make jelly. Most of the plant groups are to thick to pick all the way through. We pick just around the outsides, maybe a few feet in. Some of the groups are 50 ft. deep and you can't get to the plums. These groups might be 100 ft. long (like an oval shape)
We really have no idea how to maintain these plans to make it easier to harvest and better on the plants .. any ideas/thoughts ?
And ... Just a little shot of the good juice

|I'm sorry that I have no ideas, but you are very lucky! I'd love to have some like that.

|Plum thickets. The ones I've seen weren't so thick you couldn't get through them, but the last time I was given the task of picking plums I would have been in grade school. Maybe my smaller size then is why they were accessible. It seems to me you could just cut some pathways through the thickets this winter which would give you more access to the plums next year.
