Joseph and I did indeed pick more cherries yesterday morning. He was the the only child who was home and awake when I returned from Dusty's walk, lucky boy. It was actually quite pleasant to pick so early in the day, while the house was still shading the tree.
I don't know if this looks like a lot of cherries to you, but they sure took a long time to pit! Len and I probably spent an hour (with a movie) taking care of them. They're in the freezer now, and will probably more than fill a one gallon bag.
The birds and squirrels are more than welcome to what's left. We've never been able to get so many cherries (and so red!) for ourselves.
