DD19 went to her boyfriends aunt and uncle's orchard and helped sort cherries. I was generously given a 30# box of fresh Bing cherries! Thank you, Lord! I am always sure to give thanks when I am blessed with abundance and the generosity and kindness of others. Needless to say, I have been busy. Besides eating these delicious morsels that were lucky enough to be picked before our torrential downpour of rain, I have been drying, canning, making jam and freezing them. Cherries are very finicky about rain. They throw a fit and split at the tiniest drop of rain. Not only did cherry farmers wring their hands over their precious and delicate fruit, many farmers had their hay down on Saturday when the rains came. Check out our rainfall.
I am hoping that summer rains are gone and summer will finally be here. While much of the rest of the country is in scorching heat, we are having a very cool and wet start to summer.
