The Cherry Harvest Has Begun!
Other than picking a few cherries for nibbling here and there, we didn't really start harvesting until June 9. We've had a few friends collect about 3 gallons of cherries off the tree so far, but there's still plenty left to pick. As best I can determine, the variety is probably Montmorency, as the fruit is never huge or dark, but ripens to a moderately deep red. The taste is sour, but still pleasant to eat off the tree, and makes a wonderful cooking cherry. If any of our readers would like to come pick to their heart's delight, just come on over and help yourself. We have ladders available, and if you come while we're home, we may keep you company while you pick!
