I had my first-ever “you pick” experience this week. There are fruit stands everywhere along the roads here, but my mom was visiting for a few days and really wanted to go and pick the fruit right from the trees. We found a place to pick cherries that is conveniently located just down the road from one of our favourite wineries! (How’s that for good summertime fun planning?) For $5 each we got to pick a heap of sweet cherries and a ride out to the cherry orchard in a dusty old tractor. I was going to post a request for recipes that call for cherries, but we are enjoying eating the fresh fruit just as it is. Yum!
