20 lbs

We picked over 20 pounds of cherries from our tree (some never made it into this trug). This is by far the most we've ever harvested. This is an old tree, perhaps an original orchard tree from before the houses were built in 1967. But wow, this was a bumper year for cherries.

We need a taller ladder. These are the ones we couldn't reach.

And if cherries aren't enough, here's a mouthwatering bowl of cherries with black raspberries and strawberries...also from our garden.



  1. Wow - color me impressed! We got 4 cherries off our teeny, tiny newly planted tree. There were more but the birds got 'em before we did.

  2. Oh so jealous!! I LOVE cherries. Yummy!
