  1. A Week in the Life

    A Week in the Life
    Cherry Republic has two cherry trees in our gardens.  And miraculously, our cherries are doing pretty well.  I think this weekend, some might be ripe and ready to pick.

    Continued from the 5/31 Orchard Report email newsletter ....I have to pull the leaves out from between his toes. The sky starts thundering and lightly raining.

  5. The Cherry Report

    The Cherry Report
    Here we are in the largest cherry growing region in the world where there are nearly 2 million cherry trees spread across the lands of the Cherry Republic. Each year, the cherries are harvested and pitted and flash frozen and then hundreds of millions of pounds are stored in freezers the size of football fields. But this year, they won’t sell any cherries until they know exactly what the 2012 crop will be, and the predictions are dire.
