|Tyler's Rocky Point Orchard in Emmett Idaho|
Cherries, Apricots, Apples and Plums
(We will be going back for Apricots.)
A few hours and a picnic later, we were done. We took our time, Lucca strapped to my back made the picking slow and we both had to stick to the lower branches which was actually just fine for us. As is the case with most children, London ate more that she picked, well maybe it was a draw. Either way she had a blast, I had a blast and Lucca enjoyed my back. No he liked it. We played peek a boo and stuff like that.
|The Cherries were pulling the branches down so far that some were touching the ground. Easy picking for a 5 year old.|
|London picking, she either put it in the cup "for Daddy" or ate it. Not sure which but both are probable.|
|Trying to get a portrait of Lucca on my back by myself is hard. London was too busy eating, I mean picking, to help. (Where did her helping spirit go?!)|
At this moment in my extra fridge in the garage, which we were just about to unplug since we've gone through all our organic beef, is twelve, 12!, pounds of cherries. I guess we picked enough. I'm not sure yet if we picked enough but I will soon find out. Tomorrow I am going to buy a cherry pitter and get to work. What is in the works? Well you will have to tune in to find out. I promise I will post more. I have some things planned and guess what they involve? You guessed it! Cherries!!
|The cherries in my fridge right now. (Or course this is not all 12 pounds but a close up so you could be jealous of me being able to grab a handful and eat them if I wanted to, which I do and will when I am done with this blog. Now.)|
