Where are all the cherries?

Do you remember those cold nights we had this spring? Unfortunately, that cold coincided with bloom time for the sweet cherries, freezing the blossoms and preventing a lot of pollination. So it is a very light crop of sweet cherries this year. Sour “pie” cherries bloom a tad later, so they had more blossoms survive. The crop is still light, but it’s more substantial than the sweets.
Blueberries are coming in nicely now. If you want to freeze some, 20 lb boxes are now available and should be for several weeks.
