Let there be CHERRIES!

Two years ago, we put in tiny little cherry trees in pursuit of the goal of having an edible landscape.

(They’ve grown a bit…)

Last year, the birds ate them all because we were gone for 2 weeks in early June. This year? I might actually get a batch of preserves out of ’em!

    Nice cherries! I picked the last of mine a couple of days ago. I pit and freeze each day’s pickings and process them all at the same time.

      After freezing the first two pickings and then pitting them frozen, I started doing that too! I’ve actually an old clamp on cherry pitter that we bought on ebay, but I haven’t quite figured out how to work it – it’s mashing up the pits and not seperating them as it goes…maybe I’ll have my more mechanically inclined husband take a look and figure it out, lol…

Tell me what you think!
