Michigan Cherries

Just a quick little post to show off these beautiful cherries.

While were at my parents’ house in southern Michigan, we went out one day to pick cherries from a local orchard. I consider cherry picking the best, easiest, and most satisfying of all U-Pick fruit. The trees are so laden, and it’s so easy to reach out and grab a handful of those shiny red jewels. It’s hard to tear yourself away, in fact: on our way out I had to keep myself from stopping at every tree for one more cherry.

We picked about 20 pounds in all! Jesse, who doesn’t enjoy picking fruit as much as a do, helped by watching Edda, who helped by sleeping the whole time. Teamwork. Later, he helped even more by making an excellent and delicious cherry clafoutis with our haul.

Ah, summer living.
