Cherries survived bad weather
Late last week we had a storm blow in. One day of cold wind was followed by one day of rain. The cherries had just set & were vulnerable. The cold could kill off the fruit & the rain knock them off the trees. On Saturday, we walked through the orchard to find the cherries in great shape. Most are about 1/8 " long & a lovely green color. There's one more storm due this week, but it should be okay by them. Late season storms can do the worst damage. We were lucky this time. It looks like it will be a nice crop.
