Sour Cherry Picking with Cecilia and Laetitia

Last Saturday, Cecilia, Laetitia and I headed out to pick sour cherries at Butler's Orchards. The weather was pretty much perfect, the sour cherries were plentiful and easy to pick, and we had a great time hanging out, lunching out and shopping at Ikea and Costco afterwards. What a perfect day with fun girls!

Below are photos from our adventures. I ended up picking 10 pounds of sour cherries: I gave 2 pounds to my friend Cindy, froze about 6 pounds and made cherry compote from the rest of the cherries. Let's just say there was a lot of pitting involved.










PS here's a post about blueberry picking I did last year at the same place with Mary and Jenna.
