it is cherry season once more

Let's pick all the fruit we can, yes? Get outside and bring the kids and just you know, get your feet covered in wet grass and your fingers all sticky and give those kids a sense of accomplishment. The majority of our picking needs are met by a certain Cherry Hill Orchards. From cherries to pumpkins they carry us through all the seasons. Last week we loaded up the van with my mother and sister and Lena (!) and drove down yonder to get us some sweet dark cherries. Nonna provided the bags and general cherry knowledge, Beth picked for David while he held his bag open (can't touch the nasty fruit now can we?), and Letty climbed every ladder along the way. And Dom? Well, Dom didn't have much to say in the matter.

And then to top it all off Nonna treated us to all picked cherries! Thank you Nonna!

Last year's cherries here. And before that here.
