In a Jam Again

Friends in Benton City invited me to visit their orchard yesterday and help myself to any cherries that the pickers missed.  Most of their crop took an overnight flight to Hong Kong, but they left a couple for me and for the blackbirds. Needless to say, I am in a jam again today. I'll be cranking out jam, bags of frozen & pitted smoothie-ready fruit, etc.  I guess it is that time of year.

  1. Pout! I'm on the next plane over! Cherries are my absolute favourite fruit and I have not seen any reasonably priced here this year (or any English cherries). I can quite happily sit and eat 2lbs in a sitting. The ornamental flowering cherries fruit is coming ripe but they are all stone and no fruit so I'm still hunting!
