This spring, the cherry tree near the house has many flowers.
Unfortunately, they did not translate into very many cherries this year. There are just a few, scattered about.
Walking past it today, I noticed some seemed to be nice and ripe. After trying a couple, I picked the rest that I could reach, and brought them in for my daughters.
Yup. That’s it! Counting the one I’d already taste tested, it was a whole 8 cherries.
There are others that are not quite ripe yet, but we’re not going to get anywhere near what we had last year – and that was just barely enough to fill a medium slide-lock freezer bag.
They were, however absolutely delicious. Wonderfully sour, with just a bit of sweetness. A lovely, tiny little treat!
