Distilling Today–Wild Plum Flowers, hand harvested and expensive

Today we are harvesting wild plum flowers. It is a hard harvest due to the weather. Generally, we start picking plum flowers the first week of April.  This year, the flowers cam out two to three weeks late. Right before the buds arrived we hit 80 degrees, then had a freeze.  Many of the trees simply went to leaf and did not flower.  The next county north of us has wild plum flowers and that is where we are focusing.  Once we start making a product and people formulate with it, we have to be there for them.   So, we are busting it today, picking wild plum as there are not many picking days in the Spring of 2013
