Short post to share the delights that are coming up in our neighborhood.
Cherries from a tree by our local pond. The tree is old and super tall. No cherries are within reach. I used an extendable pruner like a remote robot arm and delicately plucked each cherry. Most of the time anyway. Sometimes I would get aggressive and clip the cherry stems on a few at a time. No branches were harmed in the collection of the fruit. Sometimes I was able to catch the falling cherries before they hit the ground. Others not. All are delicious.
Apples and pears from a local apartment complex come later, but I did notice one small apple on the ground. The season is upon us and I love it dearly!
