Cherry Pickin’! Jam Time Has Arrived!

I started picking my sour cherries yesterday morning.  I added more to the bowl today.  I had to go ahead and start bringing some in just a bit early … the birds are already working them over.

Hopefully, over the next two days I will be able to pick enough to get three quarts pitted and chopped … enough for three batches of my extra-yummy “Sour Cherry Jam!”

Here is a pic of the red beauties:


Sour cherries … they make the most awesome jam!

It’s Almost Cherry Time!

I took a quick swing by my cherry trees when I fed the goats this morning.  It looks like we’re about 48 hours away from picking our first batch!


Just starting to turn ... we'll be making jam in a few days!


Now … if we can just keep the birds away!
