Cherry Fever


I started out one day last week picking cherries standing on a chair. That didn’t get me very far. This weekend, I picked 7 pounds of cherries. I made 18 half-pints of cherry jam, and had enough cherries leftover for pie!
I picked cherries from the bed of a pickup truck.

I picked cherries climbing in the branches.

I even picked cherries from the roof after climbing out my bedroom window.
Then I picked all the leaves and twigs and cherry bark outta my hair and told the birds they could have the rest.

I still feel sticky.

    Totally worth it though – cherry jam is the best! It’s great in Christmas cookies, or any jam-baking operation, among so many other jam applications. My “dwarf” tree (it’s 12 feet tall!) bloomed well this year and has tiny cherries, here’s hoping they come to fruition.

    Sorry to be off topic, but I submitted a recipe to Farm Bell nearly 2 weeks ago and haven’t seen it posted yet. Did I not do it right? Have submitted several times in the past and they always got posted. Thanks for any help you can give me…

    I’m sorry, brookdale! It’s the crazy busy with workshops in the last couple weeks. I took care of it now.

    Thank you, Suzanne. I understand about you being busy! Would love to be able to come to a workshop. Maine is just too far away…

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
