Cherry Season!

 We are excited for cherry season.  You'll note that the cherry tree doesn't actually belong to us, nor is it in our yard.  However, a LOT of the cherries do hang over onto our side of the wall and I received permission from the tree's owner to pick those that are on our side.  Yum.  Any day now, they will be ripe and ready for picking.  Some have already been picked by the neighbor's grandkids, but I'll bet they are a bit tart still.  Just a couple more days!!!  Mmmmm, cherries.  We're so excited.

Here is a man out standing in his field.  This is Eric, when our garden was just dirt, seeds and a few little tomato and pepper plants and cabbages.  Now it is mostly weeds, dirt, a few medium tomato plants and some growing cabbages.  And some carrots, spinach, lettuce, beets, cucumbers, summer squash, winter squash, canteloup, peppers.  And lots of Iris leaves.  Are you supposed to cut back the iris leaves after they've bloomed?  I cut back the flower stems, but I saw in someone's yard where they had trimmed the leaves, too.  I've not ever done that.
