I do have something very exciting to tell you though! We are fruit growers! Yeah! Well.... Don't go getting all excited and jumping up and down or anything. I did enough of that for all of us. Saturday was a nice sunny warm day and we had just come back from a lovely ride on the quad. Walking though the yard I couldn't help but glance at our one cherry tree that actually has fruit on it. I've been watching very carefully to see if any of them are ripe yet. So, far nothing but I am ever hopeful. Come on little cherries, grow!
Then, I'm not sure why, I decided to take a closer look at the other two cherry trees. One of them had set a little bit of fruit on but most all of it had blown away in the horrible winds during a storm. And then I found one! I couldn't believe it, hidden beneath some leaves was one perfectly ripe cherry. It was the only fruit on the whole tree and it was perfectly ripe and ready to eat.
So, we shared it. There we were two grown adults giddy with joy over one tiny little cherry. It was yummy! Can't wait till the others ripen! Of course they are a sour cherry but that is fine that tart flavor will someday (of course it might take a few years) make us delicious pies and jam. Can't wait!
