Cherries

Cherries are a beautiful fruit and a rare treat.  It was a blessing when our neighbor on the trail offered that we could pick cherries from her trees.  My husband and I picked the first time.  The fruit was so ripe that many of them left their pit behind when plucked from the tree.  While we were picking, the birds scolded us, reminding us they were waiting for their turn.  After removing the seeds,  I put away four quart in the freezer; plus we ate about a pint mixed with plain yogurt.  Later in the week, the children and I picked again.  This time I managed to slide all the way down the hill on my bottom while holding the bucket and not spilling any cherries in the process!  We gained another quart and a half to make two pies for our summer staff supper.

  1. Wow Stephanie. Great pictures, delightful writing. Love the thought of you sliding down the hill trying to keep your bucket upright. That took skill.
