Eating off the tree



You can't pick cherries with your back to the tree. ~ John N. Mitchell, United States Attorney General under President Richard M. Nixon.

I stopped at the cherry orchard on my way in today (just pulled off to the side of the road) and tried a few of these babies. I don't like most cherry varieties like the very common Bing or Garnet because they are too tart.  However, I believe that this variety is the Rainier, which is very sweet.  Yumm! However, I probably now have pesticide poisoning.
