The boys are still shaking cherries. The harvest is about 2 weeks behind. They said that today was possibly the most miserable work-day they have ever had. Miserable because of the rain we had early in the morning. The trees were full of water and the boys are, of course, standing right underneath those trees when they get shaken, brrrrr…
This is when you order your cherries stirred, not shaken 😉
The rain came down so hard, it flooded our bedrooms and it rained through the roof in our rental house. Lisa, our renter, called early to let us know that there were some leaks in the kitchen and other parts of the house.
The cherries – wow the trees are heavy with them. Sour cherries are the ones that are used for drying and of course they are what goes into cherry pies.
cherries, cherries everywhere
rows of cherry trees
Do you know how Maraschino Cherries are made? I do 🙂
