Cherries

 

This year, presumably because of the heat, the birds were staying away from the garden and we had a bumper crop of Morello cherries - here, not quite ripe.

Bright red!
Tom Wilson: Yes, when ripe they are a deep maroon.
Very nice Tom...
Tom Wilson: But very sour - only used for cooking and then with lots of sugar.

it's been so hot and dry here that the birds have been trying to get moisture from our tomatoes. they've pretty much ruined our crop.

your cherries look scrumptious
Tom Wilson: We live fairly high up one of Sheffield's hills, and the birds, I think, have stayed down in the valley where the River Porter runs.

but today we had rain, for which we're so thankful !
Tom Wilson: We had a short shower yesterday - a small relief!
Oooh - they look scrumptious! Will you make pie?
Tom Wilson: They are now in the freezer and I guess a pie and a clafoutis will be in order smile These are sour cherries, so they need a lot of sugar.
Elles sont certainement très bonnes.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.

Lucky you - our few cherries went just as they began to ripen
Tom Wilson: Yes, the same has usually been the case with these. I think this is the first year we've actually harvested any.

Perhaps not ripe enough for the birds just yet Tom. They look good
Tom Wilson: Fortunately the birds stayed away!

Morello cherries! How fantastic Tom. I presume they are ripening earlier this year, like my apples have.
Tom Wilson: Well this lot ripened nicely and are now in the freezer smile
I love cherries, sweet or sour. I can give you a hint to keep birds away.
Tom Wilson: I'll be happy to have the hint, Mary - having a cat around doesn't seem to make much difference smile
They look very tasty Tom.
Tom Wilson: They are, Brian - with enough sugar!
Oh I love cherries!
Tom Wilson: That seems to be a pretty general response, Bill.
Even unripe, Tom, they make a wonderful picture. Love the shine on each and every one of them.
