What The Future Holds

I’m no psychic but –

I see cherry pie in our future.

Our one cherry tree is not at the farm but grows right next to our deck at the house. It is loaded with ripening cherries.

It’s been a couple of years since we have had a good cherry crop. Last year the blossoming tree faced several nights of freezing temperatures, then it fell prey to the gypsy moth caterpillars. Our crop was nil.

Our late warm up this year seems to be beneficial for this crop.

I suspect I will be making cherry pie next week. πŸ™‚

    1. That’s ok I’m behind in writing. You’re right I made the cherry pie and we have been enjoying it – yum! so good!!! I’ve also picked enough cherries for at least 4 more pies. πŸ™‚

      1. That’s good news – did you make the ice cream for it too Ruth? I remember you wrote about making ice cream a few years ago (I hope it was you)? You lucked out – better you making pies with them and not the robin eating them.

    1. Thanks Rory. I watched a robin steal a cherry from the tree yesterday. Now I know what were up against. We must be vigilant in picking the ripe ones. πŸ™‚ I always remove the pits before cooking or eating.

  1. Lucky you Ruth! But does it seem early for cherries in June? I always associate them with August. I find that in my garden/yard – some stuff is way early and other things behind, and somethings didn’t survive the winter/spring at all.

I would love to hear from you.
