fruitful backyard tree

I see cherry pie, cherry jelly & cherry syrup in my future This is a shot of our cherry tree in our backyard. As long as the birds, chipmunks and squirrels leave us a few, we should have a decent cherry harvest this year. They should ripen in a couple of weeks. They are the dark bing cherry variety. Very sweet and tasty. Can't wait!!!





Our plum and pear trees are also going nuts this year. Should be a bountiful harvest

Our pears are really taking shape. So is the scab on them, never sure what to do about that. Just eat around it, or right through it on a really hot day.

Some years are worse than others, but our pears always have scab on them too. We eat them nonetheless.

I'm glad my kids don't notice the scab. Kids can get so fixated on perfectly symmetrical uniformly sized polished waxed and shined produce.
