Garden journal entry


June 08, 2012. When it comes to the cherries, this is one of the good years – no significant fungal problems (which is amazing, considering all the rainy weather we've been having lately), and I got to them before the birds made significant inroads on the crop. I'd been watching them turn a little redder every day, and yesterday I jumped, to get a decent harvest of sour cherries. Hopefully they'll make their way into a cherry pie by the end of the weekend. What I didn't realize until after I brought my bowl of cherries in, was that I had a hitchhiker. The little guy in the photo is most likely a baby cricket. I'm sure he's very well camouflaged when scurrying across a leaf. Across a deep red cherry, not so much.
