    • Finding the ripest cherry trees was like a treasure hunt and lots of fun. Most trees had plenty of cherries, but not all were ready to be picked.

    • Some trees had only a few cherries left, but they were incredibly delicious!

    • We wore masks whenever other people were picking cherries nearby but took them off when we were alone.

    • The first plastic bag filled up quickly. But we brought a bucket with us from home to pick for three families.

    • The darker colored cherries were so ripe they kept falling to the ground if accidentally touched.

    • There was plenty of room for social distancing between rows and rows of cherry trees.

    • Many of the best (unpicked) cherries are closer to the ground or high on the tree tops.

    • Don't forget to look up from under the tree. Some of the best cherries are hiding in plain sight.

    • 16 lbs of cherries at $3.50 per pound. A good price to pay for fun in the sun and to feed three families!

    • Oh, that looks wonderful! While I don't have cherries to pick near me I have started seeing them in the grocery stores.

    • Wonderful photos as always. I think we’re a few weeks behind you on in season cherries 🍒, so this was some pleasant eye candy to look at until then.
