We spent last week at my parents house and spent one beautiful morning picking sour pie cherries. I grew up knowing that homemade cherry pie was something special- something we usually had only a few times a year, on Thanksgiving, President's Day (you know, George Washington and the cherry tree), and on my dad's birthday, because it was his favorite with homemade ice cream. For several years this tree has had worms and we've had to bypass the pies or find some place to buy the cherries, but this year the tree is full and the fruit is beautiful. Here's to a cherry pie for the 4th? If I can convince myself to turn on the oven!

Fruits, as peaches, keep on increasing in size until they are ready. They ought to be picked when they are of most extreme size and full-seasoned.

When I was a child, my mom would always reunite with her siblings and we will do different activities according to what the weather permits us to do. We did cherry picking too. It was fun and challenging at the same time. Aside from the cherries we get every session, the bond is the best thing we get during these events. I feel so lucky to have experienced all of those when I was young.

Oh, I love cherries, specially the fresh ones! It was truly amazing learning about your experience with picking fresh cherries. I am sure the pie would have turned out really good with those beautiful, red balls of juice!

It’s glad to know that the tree has now serving its purpose again! Cherry picking is an activity that is enjoyed by the whole family. It promotes good family bond as you share stories and laughter while picking cherries together. The photos are cute! Cherries have been a way to share the love and time among the members of the family!
