The Summer in Pictures: Day 36
K bear this morning: "Mom can I go get a cherry?"
Me: "You can go get one, K. They are going to start picking this week."
I quite clearly said ONE cherry. I mean, we have permission to pick from the folks who own the orchard, but only after the hired field workers are done. That being said, I didn't think that letting my seven year old preview the crop with one cherry would make or break the season. And when there are literally thousands of trees within six feet of your property line, they are hard to resist.
But apparently, this is what "one" cherry looks like to K. I can't tell if that's one handful or one branch, but it's definitely what one little girl can carry in one sweater.
So coming soon to a grocery store near you...fresh Oregon cherries...at least the ones that didn't go into my kid.
