The actual pie cherries (Montmorency and Surefire) had minimal amounts.  We have a wild cherry that I suspect is a devolved type of sweet cherry, although they are even smaller, and more sour.  Very big tree.  And some sweet cherry trees that have been producing big bowls of cherries for two weeks.  I collected enough pie cherries and wild cherries for 3/4 of a pie, and added sweet cherries for the rest.  It's baking now.

Some of the persimmons have set fruit, hallelujah.  Starting to see some fruit set on tomatoes, peppers blooming.  Sweet corn is more varied in size and vigor, not sure how that will turn out.

One of the new chestnut trees is growing like crazy, 2 feet of growth, one intermediate, and one added maybe 3 inches.  I might buy another new one this winter and replace the slow one.  Life is too short to wait.

A bird ate my first, highly nurtured and babied, blackberry.  I added some screening, we'll see if they eat more before I get to taste one.

Ouch, Ouch, Ouch!  Hope I never have a torn ligament.

Daniel, the carrot kill made me chuckle.

Thomas, they couldn't pay me to go to the Arch. Such a joke.

I second your comment about Daniel's positive attitude. I wish more people were like that.
Joan, I tore a ligament in my ankle years ago. Very painful. I hope you heal quickly.

Joan, no problem with the typing!  We all have our challenges with our keyboards and keypads.  I certainly do!

My carrots NEVER come out like this!

Sorry, I seem to be having trouble typing what I mean. 

This recent Common on Friday, a corrected copy"

Daniel, in response to your Comment on Friday. a cottrcted copy:

"The Dr visit did go well, still NED no evidence of disease in the scan.  That means continue maintenance daily oral chemo, which I have been doing for 4 years now. I took light rail train there and back, much less stress and more fun, than driving."

You have been in my thoughts and I read your comment today, Sunday, July 2. Not seeing "any evidence of disease" must give you relief as well as determination to continue with your daily oral chemo!

I hope you feel well and enjoy whatever energy you have.

You are truly someone to look up to for a positive outlook on life in spite of cancer....

I can see the deep connection between you and Joan.....

I feel the pain you have. It is like someone used an ice pick and stabbed the middle sole of your foot. I have plantar fasciitis feet. I use prescribed arch supports. But any kind of foot injury can be painful. This is when we realized how much we depend on our feet to get around.

Get well soon.....

We had very heavy rain storms the last few weeks, with lightning and thunder. There were no fires in Dist 8, but we know what is coming. We have had hot weather the past few days, the hills, valleys, and meadows turn the countryside into a verdant green to match any scene from Ireland. 

The green grass shot up to as tall as I. With hot temps forecast, the green will turn to dry straw very quickly. Please send positive energies to the firefighters of the N.S/
