Summer fruit

Ahhh...don't you love the fruit of summer? I'm making my plans for strawberry-picking, blueberry-picking and any other picking we can manage. I just learned that Michigan is the number one producer of tart cherries in the US. Hmm. Wonder what we can do with that. For those of you in California and anywhere else with access, go pick cherries!

I have our belt tutorial ready to go, but am running short on computer time. I hope to post it tomorrow. And the Craft Social was awesome! We are expecting to gather and post pics soon.

Oh, I forgot to mention when I posted this earlier-I love my cherry pitter. I got this one a couple years ago after using a similar one at my parents'. It works great and I love the shield feature. It really makes a difference. Keeps the squirts off your shirts. For those of you not into the gadgets, I've seen several different methods for pitting cherries without it-paperclips, nails, pastry bag tips, pencils, bobby pins. Most of these methods are messy but frugal.

I'm so jealous of your beautiful cherries! We've done strawberries so far and am looking forward to our ripening blueberries as well as peaches from the farmer's market but my favorite and least indulged are definitely cherries.

Jennifer Suarez said...

YUM! Those cherries look amazing

Amy said...

Leaving for Lopez Ranch in 5 minutes. Wish you could pick some cherries with me!

Susan W said...

Can you possibly post your favorite UPick places? I'm looking to go upick for strawberries too and would love to hear your ideas :) I promise to leave some for you too!!!

Megan,
Looking at your pitter, I wonder how the shield works - it looks like it's on the wrong side. Doesn't the juice squirt back at ya?
I've been pitting cherries for a few years now and have an older-fashioned pitter picked up at a rummage sale. I have several shirts which have been irreversibly changed by my cherry pitting sessions, so you'd think I might be an expert on the squirt trajectories. Except I've usually got my eyes squinched shut.

Jessica said...

I seriously need to get a cherry pitter before the season begins! Thanks for reminding me...I desperately needed one last summer.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

those cherries look pretty tasty!

Megan said...

Susie,
The pitter pushes the pit and the spattering of juice out the bottom beneath the cherry. It's genius.

megan, I wish I could rig up a shield like that for my cherry pitter...I'm green and red-splattered with envy!

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
