Cherry on top
A few years ago, our cherry tree looked like this. It was so loaded we could pick bags and bags - from the ground! It was CRAZY!
This year our harvest is nonexistent. A late freeze in April came along just as the little baby cherries were forming. A few days later I noticed black, shriveled little baby cherries.
Our weather has been very strange this year. We had warm weather in February and March, enough to start everything growing. Then cold, miserable and wet April, May and June. Now we are at the beginning of a heat wave - we're supposed to set record temperatures for today, tomorrow and Friday. After our cold and rainy June (and 4th of July) I won't be complaining.
But the cherries will be missed.
