Cherries

We won’t get any apples this year because of the harsh Spring, but with good luck and a net we might get some cherries.

What a difference altitude makes!

      Yes, as usual, fingers crossed. We’ve had good luck up there with cherries. As long as we protect them from the birds and critters.

    A life without apples is, obviously, unthinkable. Nothing that money won’t be able to rectify. Not that I don’t acknowledge Andy’s disappointment at his own efforts. The gardener’s lot is an exercise in patience, hope and – to varying degrees – that of joy and misery. Yes, the forces of nature. Man’s lost frontiere.

    Here (in the UK, don’t know about mainland Europe this summer) cherries have become (or rather always have been) a luxury. Sad since, for me, they are (apart from apples) jewels in the crown of fruit.

    Still, my dear Jean, you’d be the first to say that in absence of anything we should make do with lemons. And, in absence of lemons, maybe – just this once – you’ll agree that at such diversity being sour is permissible.

    As a child my parents bought a house with gardens and trees but cherries were the only things we succeeded in harvesting. I can still “see” Mom and Grandma making cherry jelly in jars sealed with melted paraffin.
