Mostly-Wordless Not-Wednesday: More Cherries!
summary: curious cat; Swiss chard from the garden; firm sweet red cherries (possibly Cavalier, Hedelfingen, Sweetheart, Staccato, Van, Vista or ??) picked for Not Far From the Tree on 5 July 2015 in a backyard of Toronto: in 2 hours, 5 of us picked about 50 lbs in all, in spite of the fact that many of the cherries had cracked in the rain last week. (1/3 of the fruit went to the tree owner, 1/3 was shared by the pickers, and 1/3 was delivered by bicycle to be donated to a food bank, shelter, or community kitchen in the neighbourhood).
