Cherries are in!

{check out Pieter riding this little tractor in 2011 - what a change!}

Just as our last few days are coming upon us, we found out that the sweet cherries were ready. After missing out on cherries last year due to the widespread crop failure, I was extra excited to go picking. We hopped in the car and headed for King Orchards in Central Lake. We found three different varieties of sweets and some beautiful apricots. And the kids thought the tractors were the best part, of course. What a great ending for us!

  1. How wonderful you got to go cherry picking!
    We found cherries at the farmer's market in Geneva but it was one of the last days so we never investigated going picking. We bought a couple of pints and they were gone very quickly.
    We did get to pick black raspberries, currants, mulberries, and red raspberries in Grampy's garden though. They didn't last long either.
