I Think I Forgot to Mention...

Now that I think about it, I don't think I ever mentioned that we closed on those 5 acres we were thinking about buying.

Yes, we're landowners!

Honestly, we closed on May 25th and haven't been to the property since then... nor have we popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Cherry harvest (which just finished, successfully and beautifully) has been a little bit all-consuming.

But we have great plans for our little plot, and hopefully within the next several years it will morph into our dream homestead. For now I just want to plant a little grove of fig trees and hope they're nice and mature by the time we can build and move out there.

Oh, let the dreaming begin!

I hope that you get to celebrate soon your new five acres.  I'd like to think that I've had a little something to do with your being able to move a little closer to your dream home....  You see, I absolutely love the divine cherry.  When cherries are in season, I buy (and eat all by myself) at least 3-4 pounds a week of fresh cherries during these delightful summer months.  I eat them with breakfast, as a snack after lunch, and as a snack in the evening when I'm reading a novel.  And don't even get me started on homemade cherry pie, cherry ice cream, chocolate covered cherries....  Hooray for the cherry farmers of the world!
