It seems that Strawberry picking is just about over. After a busy weekend, Rowe’s Produce Farm will be closed today and possibly tomorrow to allow the remaining berries to ripen.

Picking Cherries at Spicer Orchards

However, it is now cherry season. I got an e-mail yesterday from Spicer Orchards that they are opening today for pick your own tart cherries and are expecting a great crop. They have a pitting machine which my daughter loves to watch. We have picked there several times in the past. In the past, we have picked sweet cherries as well.
