Ripening Plums

I've been pestering myself for a week or so to get some photos of the plums while the Pizazz are just about ripe but the Mariposa have a way to go yet. There are so many Pizazz plums that the branches are almost breaking and I've had to support a few of them with stakes. The trees themselves look a bit flea bitten which i suspect is due to the cherry slug which seems to be partial to plums too. I think when the trees are big enough I'll investigate the injection you can get for the tree to control the slimy alien things.
