Stella Cherry Tree

Last year I planted a Stella Cherry tree (a sweet variety) and this year it gave us some fruit! About 30 in all. Violet stole some while I managed to salvage the rest. Not bad for a first year's harvest - and I only had to wait one year to get it. In my little city yard the crows can be a real bother - they have not discovered this little treasure - yet.

Violet being a little imp - surprisingly SHE discovered the cherries but Sadie did not

It decided to pour down rain so I picked all the cherries before they split. Not really sure that's a problem with cherries but swelling and splitting in the rain can be an issue with other fruit, and they needed to be eaten anyway

nom nom nom - delicious!
