I picked enough cherries to make a cobbler. It's in the oven now. It rained this morning, and it's too wet to do anything outside. I have two tart cherry trees, the North Star is ripe, the Montmorency is later. I don't have a lot on the North Star this year, but the Montmorency is loaded. Here's a pic of the Montmorency, as you can see from the picture they aren't ripe yet.

Cherry cobbler sounds wonderful!! Used to pick cherries from a neighbors tree when I was a child in Michigan. Would come home and pour sugar on them and enjoy. Hilarious! No cherry trees in Tucson. Thumbs down

What beautiful cherries. I love to dry them for cookies or muffins, etc.

Oh my gosh, I just tried to eat some perfectly ripe cherries from my North Star Cherry Tree. No wonder even the birds left these alone. Soooo sour! Thumbs down

My friend and I picked cherries from the other tree. Don't know what kind it is but a pie type. But still taste good fresh. She made cobbler. Yummy!

Forgot to say that those sure are a lot of cherries.

I eat the North Star right off the tree, they are tart, but I don't mind them.

I have had very bad luck with fruit trees. Mostly deer & rabbit damage to young ones. I have been trying to grow a small espalier "fence" for the past 4 years with apples and pears, and its pathetic - but I keep trying.

I should have a decent apple crop too this year. I didn't get many apples the last year. Missed my apple sauce too.
