So, about two weeks ago, the neighbors that live behind us "warned" us that their cherry guy (also known as the guy who sprays their cherry trees) said that the cherries would be ripe for the picking very, very soon.
Well, this week appears to be soon.
For the most part, anyway.
And even tho our tree is a dwarf cherry tree....yes, I still need to use a ladder.
Can you see them in there?
G is checking it out to make sure that it doesnt have any flaws. At the same time he is letting me know that he thinks it quite odd that someone would plant a tree that grows sour cherries.
Along with our one sour cherry tree, we also have 2 pear trees.
We have one plum tree.
One apricot tree.
And 4 apple trees.
2 granny smith
And 2 that are some kinda "delicious" variety.
So we are told anyway....thats all subject to change upon reaching harvest time. When we can see things fully ripened and draw our final conclusions.
I think we made a pretty good haul of cherries for our very first harvest. 3 pounds and 2.25 ounces to be exact.
Without a doubt, I can say that cherry season has just begun.
So, if you need me, Ill be in the tree.
