Saturday morning, for the second week in a row, we woke to the sounds of thunder and rain. Our plans for the day included cherry picking at a Cherry Festival just an hour down the road. With the rain lightening to a sprinkle we decided to pack our rain boots and give it a try anyway.
I’m so glad that we did.
We ended up with a total of 15 pounds of cherries, pitted and ready to use. I made a few jars of jam, froze about 10 bags and the rest are sitting in the refrigerator waiting for me to decide their fate.
