Doris invited me to join her and June to pick cherries at Seko Ranch in Brentwood on Thursday morning. She goes every year and ordered 50 pounds for her and her whole family to share. All I wanted was 1-2 pounds but once we started picking, next thing I knew, I had 4 pounds in my bucket!
Here are Doris and June in the cherry tree field.
The trees were loaded.
We didn't even have to climb on ladders, although we did for a cute little photo-op with June picking cherries from the top of the tree.
There are also peach and apricot farms nearby.
June and I pretended to fight for the perfect peach. Actually, these peaches weren't quite ripe enough so after our little photo excursion, we headed to Peter Wolfe Ranch. Not only were the peaches and apricots wonderful, the woman working was so helpful and nice.
Now...what to do with 4 pounds of cherries...any suggestions?
