I am always amazed at our small orchard! One peach... one apple (was two)... and one sour cherry. The harvest vastly varies from year to year! Some years our trees are stingy, yielding little fruit. Other years our trees make a note worthy attempt at growing fruit but get picked clean by the birds and insects, especially when we do not spray.  And other years it is as thought our tiny orchard is sound asleep and the trees are too lazy to spend the energy on fruit production!

But this is almost a magical year...




This year, our sour cherry tree gave us the most wonderful, beautiful, perfect sour cherries we have ever seen... and it was in a generous mood! We have never had such a marvelous harvest!

Bobby's favorite thing to spread on his English Muffin in the morning is my sour cherry jam. So I am up to my elbows in jam making this afternoon! The house smells sweet and the kitchen counters are sticky as I  am preserving early summer in a jar! Look for a Sour Cherry Jam Culinary Tutorial in an upcoming post!

Okay, peach and apple trees.. are you going to be outdone by a CHERRY tree... and a sour one at that! Show me what you've got!
