The cherries are getting ripe! As we get close to the time for the Traverse City Cherry festival, we have been checking all the cherry trees for ripe fruits. There have been a few ripe cherries each day and several more on the way.
Our tree cherries are getting ripe, but so are the bush cherries. Several years ago we planted some Hansens bush cherries, and a couple cherry trees, a Kristin cherry, and a Northstar tart cherry. It looks like we are going to have some nice fruit this year!
