‘Tis cherry season in our part of the country! On 3rd May, cherries looked like this
and barely 3 weeks later, they look like this
The tree is absolutely covered, but the really big juicey ones seem to be very high up and way out of reach, even for my husband who was up on the ladder . . . never mind, the birds can have a feast on those. This boxload is our second harvest already! My husband picked approximately 1 kilo on Sunday, just on the lower branches, and in 15 minutes. This evening he tackled some of the higher branches and tonight’s harvest weighs in at 3.3 kilos!
I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow! De-stoning cherries and probably making jam.
A few photos, while I’m posting, to show you that the cats are enjoying the new cushions.
Mind you, Merlin will sleep anywhere . . .
At least he’s using the cat tree now – we’ve put it in the veranda, where he can keep an eye on what’s going on outside.
