It's cherry picking time in the Yakima Valley.
A total of 7 children and adults plus our tour guide Mr. T. visited a local fruit ranch to pick not-quite-full containers of fresh ripe delectable cherries.
Not only did we have fun traipsing through the cherry trees and orchard rows, the young fruit pickers learned several new things.
Picking cherries is harder than it looks.
It's takes lots of cherries to fill even tiny buckets. Lots.
It's more fun to visit and play than pick cherries.
Don't use the port-o-potties (as advised by Mr. T.).
It was a great outing. Plus I have a big bowl of the yummiest cherries just waiting to be gobbled up.
Fresh and raw, pitted and baked. Any way, any time.
