The July 1st weekend is usually a good time to plan on harvesting the first cherries and this year things were just about right on time.  It seems not long ago that I posted about  the first blossoms on the cherry trees.  During the flowering period there were a number of very cool wet days and although I didn't see a lot of pollinating insects during flowering time, apparently I missed them because our crop is pretty good and driving through the valley other crops also look good.

Another sign of a good crop is not as many birds eating the cherries--just an average amount of crows, cedar wax wings and robins - there seems to be enough fruit trees to spread out the birds, so in the end we have more cherries from two trees than we could use. Grizzly

  1. Cherries & Bears? I had a comment (accidentally deleted it) whether the bears bothered the cherry trees in Bella Coola? Answer - Yes. If your lucky and you have a dog and the tree close to your house you might be okay - otherwise an electric fence is the only way to go. Grizzly
