{Cherries, Cherries, Cherries}

Our cherry tree exploded with cherries. We were a bit shocked as the previous owner said if we didn't get it sprayed with something it wouldn't produce, which is why it didn't produce for him (or so he says). Well guess what! We have yummy, delicious cherries bursting out of our ears and don't have a ladder high enough to get the tippy top cherries.

Although we do enjoy watching the birds eat the cherries that fall on the ground and watching the squirrels eat the cherries in the tree...It's great entertainment for sure. I am going to get someone to come out though and trim the taller branches so that I don't have to go out and buy a super tall ladder.

Below are the cherries we got today. Three paper lunch bags full of cherries (picked by me), 1/2 a bag of cherries for Ruth and the boys quit early with only a 1/4 bag full...It was awesome, but now I can feel the sunburn set in and the pinkness turn a bit more brighter shade of red...

As a side note, I made some cherry puree for MJ to have in her oatmeal for lunch and she loved it! YAY!!!

This is just 2 bags full of cherries, hubby at the other bag and the kids kept theirs in their bags for easy snacking.

  1. These are gorgeous! I am oh soooo jellus! Was in Michigan last month and was so sad to learn there was not one single cherry to be found until June. Glad you found some on your trees.
