Pie Cherries!


This is the seventh year we've lived here. When we first arrived, we bought a few fruit trees—and then I gifted my partner a few more: We have pears, plums and cherries in this "orchard." We also have five apple trees, currents, elderberries, raspberries, strawberries. Lucky. Yesterday, I harvested tons and tons of these lovely pie cherries. In past years, I've made jellies and jams, but this year I'm making and freezing tarts and pies for winter bounty and joy. JOY!
