It's cherry-picking time!
Mid-June is cherry-picking time and the kiddos had a blast picking the tart pie cherries! Unfortunately, we lost all of our sweet cherries to splitting as a result of too much rain near harvest. This is a major source of crop loss in the cherry industry and we experienced it first hand. We were able to pick enough pie cheries for a few pies. But by the time the kids were done eating more cherries than they put into the bucket, we'll be lucky to have enough to make one small pie!
