        Plum trees can be really productive and you only really need around – 2kg per gallon of plum wine so you will have more than enough. If you want to make this plum wine but don’t have any trees nearby then you can buy plums in. I would recommend you still wait until the fruit is in season rather than buying imported fruit. Rick Vanman shows you how to create plum wine from scratch with the use of a 5 gallon demijohn, a process that requires patience and time. First, you pick enough plums to make the desired amount of wine. You pick the red plums for red wine, and the light plums for white : Wonderhowto.

[Angela Davis-Gardner; Linda Stephens] -- An American teaching English in Tokyo, Barbara Jefferson receives an unusual bequest after the death of her colleague and closest friend, Michiko Nakamoto.
