A few days ago I was performing weed control behind the high tunnel (aka mowing with the tractor). A creek runs along behind the high tunnel and while backing the mower out over the edge of the creek to reduce the area of snake habitat, I spied several cherry trees that had lots of bright red, voluptuous cherries on them.....
So tempting.....so, so, over the creek!
I did temporarily lose my sanity and turn the tractor around to see just how close the bucket would get to the tree, BUT I regained my sanity when I compared the cost of a broken bone or wrecked tractor to the cost of a container of fresh cherries in the store. The birds are enjoying a cherry feast.
I believe George just cut the darned thing down and ate the cherries himself. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
