Cherry Harvest: 12 lbs

I have two cherry trees left out back and one must be about 40+ feet tall. The problem is that the racoons, which can climb high, never get the ones on top that I can't reach. They go for the ones that I can reach in the 20' and under range. They are buglers for sure.

Today I decided to get what I could off the big tree before the birds, squirrels, and racoons get them all. I'll can them because last year people used them for pies, cherry ale, and other things.

I ended up with 12 pounds of cherries. I'm pretty excited. I've only really harvested the peas, cherries, and garlic but I have been getting good yields for being a cooler summer. The other veggies are going to produce a lot as well.
