Friends of ours recently discovered that two of their trees (planted by previous owners) were fruit producing cherry trees so they ended up with branches of these last week – more than they could eat, so they graciously shared with us. Yum. What a treat. Really, to just wake up one day and find one of your favorite fruits weighing down the branches of your very own tree. These early cherries are just hitting our grocery stores, and the organic bags are $7 a bag. The way the baby gobbled them up, we may need to plant our own orchard.
Three hours in the garden the other morning, ahhh. I’m sure I had more pressing things to do, but it’s amazing how those things fly out of my brain when I’m in there. The only thing more pressing that F had to do was to try and reach these off limits cherries. She knows a good thing when she sees one.
Enjoy the explosion of nearly-June garden color. And wrapping it up at the end… another version of going, going, gone. Or maybe I should call this one going, going, gone and really gone.
