Cherries galore!

Every year on the weekend of the 4th of July we have a family tradition. That tradition is to go to a pick-your-own cherry orchard. Our kids absolutely love to pick fruit and cherries are no exception. This year we anticipated a poor picking season and almost didn't go. We went ahead and made the trek to the orchard and were pleasantly surprised. The season was not as good as previous years  but we did come away with 27 lbs of cherries. This was a great deal  because they were just one dollar a pound. Our local market charges three times that much. Tomorrow I will embark on preserving them in various ways. I am thankful to have the cherries and such a fun family adventure once again.
