Cherry season has arrived! Shady Lane Orchards opened on Saturday with Bing, Rainier and pie cherries either picked at $1.50/lb or u-pick for $1.00/lb. In spite of our April snow and unusually cold spring weather, Shady Lane has a good crop. I bought a 12 lb. box for fresh eating, but I plan to pick some in the next day or two for dehydrating. Dried Bing cherries are a favorite winter snack at our house.
