Description from KATHERINE T: After several years of waiting for cherries my little 4 foot high dwarf tree has produced gallons of cherries. I didn't even know that they got red because the birds ate them so fast. Well this year I got a net and I got the cherries!

    Beautiful, beautiful pick, Katherine!
    Love it!

    So glad you got fruit this year! :-) Those hungry birds usually don’t even wait till the fruit is ripe before they gobble them up!
    We’ve been putting nets on our blueberries for years (and they still sneak in tiny holes! ….time for new nets.) Our cherry tree has yet to receive that preferential treatment…. :|

    Oh, I know how savvy they are. :) They used to clean out our tiny crabapples every year before the tree split in a store. I miss watching them feast. :)

    Love your cherry pick and story, Katherine! I know about birds- they always eat half the fruit on my fig tree! But, I always get the other half!!

    KATHERINE T says:

    Well I am drying them to put in our salads. That way I’m not making pie and you know what happens when there’s pie around…..I eat it!! Oink oink!

    KATHERINE T says:

    I forgot to add the roses are planted around my fruit garden, very Martha Stewart of me!
