I ordered/planted 2, Montgomery sour cherry tree 4 years ago, from a respecatble online nursery. Last year was the first year for only one to get cherries on either, but the birds picked them off while small and green. Being proactive this year, I got netting big enough to cover the one with cherries (none on the other again) when they started forming. Now, the more I look at it, it appears to be a wild cherry tree.Picked over 8 gallons of cherries and made over 24 quarts of jam.
been trying to keep up on the cultivating and weeding after we finally got 3/10'ths inch of rain.
Onions a potatoes getting big. Cant walk thru the rows anymore and onions have big bulbs as of today. they will be pulled the last day of July, so they need to get finishing up growing!

A buddy of mine has a sour cherry tree that has produced, and he has picked all of his. All of these are still rather small and green. I'll let them mature, but think I'll just end up with ripe wild cherries, LOL... If that's the case. I reckon' it will make a dab of kindling for the shop stove.
