We've picked cherries three days in a row and I think we have enough for a pie. This is not on our diet, but we grew the cherries and for the first time we can use them. I thought about cherry preserves with splenda, but we don't have enough for preserves. Maybe next year.
But the birds usually get the cherries before we do. Larry put a short piece of black hose in the tree. He'd read that the birds think it is a snake and stay away. I don't know that they thought that, but they didn't get all the cherries this year:)
