It’s time to pick cherries! I have two cherry trees. They love me. One of the few living organisms in my yard that does. I am a genius at killing what I plant, and growing weeds. But these trees have thousands of cherries on them. We picked yesterday for HOURS. I popped so many in my mouth that I am afraid to go too far from the bathroom… 🙂 My mom came over, so it was a family affair. She will make cherry pies, and I will graciously eat them. Ahhh, perks of having a baker mom live close!
We kept these four containers. My mom has a huge bucketful with at least twice as much!
These are cherries from the view of my deck. Yes, breakfast and snacks are put an arm length away….although the arm length is now enough of a stretch that I fear falling off the deck right. on. to. my. nose. Tempting little suckers, eh?
This is our smaller tree, but it produces more cherries and they are better tasting. Not sure why….
This is our back cherry tree. It is trying to eat our deck. We did not think it would get this large. We have Robins living in this one. I am trying to be nice and share. Both trees are waaay to bushy and need trimming!
