Cherry Pie Time !!!

Wild Rose Farm - Sour Cherries Ready!
Well --- here's the project for the evening!   The sour cherries have ripened enough that they'll be ahead of the birds for a couple of days.   Time to make a cherry pie & put some cherries in the freezer for later.  The temps will be in the 90's this afternoon and the humidity is up today too.  Just below the cherry trees are a couple of blueberry bushes that we'll have to cover before they start to ripen .... you definitely can't keep ahead of the birds on them!
WRF Rambouillet #401 & Twins Grazing
WRF #401 was limping around two days ago.  We looked at her right front foot and couldn't find anything in there, but she definitely poked it somehow.  We brought her up to the barn with her twins & gave her a shot of a long acting antibiotic.  A second shot will clear that up and she's already walking better.  Her lambs are doing well - one ewe - one ram.

Jealous! Sour cherry pie is my absolute favorite. I used to climb the old cherry tree when I was a kid and pick a shopping bag full of fruit for Mom's pies, then I'd gorge myself when they came out of the oven.
