We realized on Saturday that the birds were suddenly loving our cherry tree!
We quickly put a net around it, using the neighbor's tall ladder and a long pole.
The poor birds are so confused now- flying around looking to get closer to the ripening cherries.
A few have gotten inside the net and get pretty freaked out until they can get out- no cherry tasting involved.
Elliott climbed the tree and picked a few for us to taste- they were good but need a few more days.
We are so excited for our huge harvest!
Last year we had six cherries and this year closer to 600!
