This is what summer looks and tastes like at A Man and His Hoe®. The cherries are ripening early this year. Often, the birds finish off the cherries before we get a chance to enjoy them. This year, the birds are leaving them alone. Hurrah!
The raspberries are inside the hoop house, safe from the birds. They are most delicious picked in the afternoon when they are warm. Only a few make it into the house to be served.
It’s wonderful being able to eat these fruits directly off the vines and the trees. With most people living in dense urban settings, it’s a privilege to be able to walk out the door and enjoy them without having to go to a store to get them.
