"Bring an ice cream pail"...he said.
"The cherries are ready to pick and we better get them before the birds do."
We planted that cherry tree last spring so I didn't go find an ice cream pail.
I picked one bowl and decided that would be "insensitive" to his harvest hopes and selected a 6 cup measuring cup.
I waited at the bottom of the ladder...
dreaming of cold crisp cherries.
He was down quicker than my dreams could take root.
And....that was that.
Now I really want to have my fill of cherries.
Perhaps a day trip is in order.
The Okanagan valley is within driving distance and they have a schedule here of their Fruit Ripening Dates.
According to them...cherries should be in their harvest prime.
I'll let you know...
if I found the real cherry harvest.
all for now...
