We moved into our current rental house in November when the trees had all lost their leaves. So, it was really exciting this spring when we discovered that we had several fruit trees growing in the backyard. As the fragrant blossoms died away and we became occupied with swimming and hiking the fruit trees faded from our minds. So, it was really exciting this past week when the Younger Fives came running into the house with huge smiles and handful of ripe cherries. The tree is absolutely loaded with fruit keeping our stomachs very happy. At some point we will probably need to start thinking of what to do with all these cherries besides just snacking on them. It will be interesting to see if the other fruit trees in the yard (apple and plum) yield as much fruit.
