New Cherries from our Orchard

New Cherries from our Orchard

We planted our first cherry orchard this year inside our new polytunnel. These will be sold at our Market Stall, but our first crop will not be until summer 2011, and that will probably only be quite small. We hope to then have cherries in abundance from the following year. 

Sweet glossy dark cherries are a true temptation.  The birds seem to know that best, and if they are given half a chance they strip the trees of their fruit in no time at all.  In order for us to allow the cherries to reach full ripeness and let our customers enjoy them instead of the blackbirds, we have to totally bird-proof our polytunnel, with netting over all vents and doors!

Fres ripe sweet cherries are surely one of life's luxuries!
