June 18 ...cherry picking time & walkaround
It's time to beat the birds and get the cherries picked off the trees. We have two cherry trees that normally ripen about two weeks apart from each other. But, this year they're going to ripen simultaneously with a bumper crop! It's going to be a busy week, but well worth it when I'm baking cherry pies in the middle of winter. We had a late freeze last year that hit the cherry trees hard, so this year's large harvest is quite a treat.
First day's pickings....
Other projects for the day included transplanting everything from the back row of the property next to the ditch. I've decided to go back to mowing that area due to the drainage ditch's flooding and weeds issues. Transplanted all the iris and stonecrop, then weed whacked all the tall grass that had sneaked up from the ditch. Now I have a 3' path between the back garden and the drainage ditch. Dh doesn't like to mow that, but too bad, he gets it back! LOL Daffodils remain, and will come up and bloom long before the grass gets going again in the spring.
A few pics from the day....
