2 Pounds of freshpicked Bing Cherries
I didn' t get much accomplished over the weekend except for programming some websites and trying to catch up on my much needed sleep, but I did manage to harvest the rest of my beautiful ripe cherries before the wild critters got them.
The photo above shows over 2 lbs of big bright red juicy sweet cherries. This was the harvest off of the Bing side of the dual graft tree. Last week I harvested the Van side which produced 1lb of sweet dark red cherries. The Bings are bit larger and lighter colored than the Vans, but both are very good eaten fresh.
This is the best cherry harvest I have had since I planted the tree 9 years ago. The basket did have a few more cherries in it before I took the photo. I can't resist nibbling on them while I pick them. I got so enthused about the picking, that I forgot to spit out one of the cherry pits and then suddenly realized that I had swallowed it! Oh my. Now I will have a cherry tree growing inside of me. Oh my.
