What Have I Been Up To?

Patrick planted my Sweetheart Cherry Tree for me two years ago. Last year the deer ate all the leaves from it & I was afraid they'd killed it. Well, it made it through the winter so I covered it with netting this summer so we wouldn't have a repeat deleafing. Hallelujah! I had my first crop of cherries and I harvested and ate all 6 of them a couple days ago!! They were yummy.
I also harvested my first crop of rhubarb last week. It was only enough for a single babycake, so I also made a pineapple upside down cake. I gave the big one to some friends who are working on their home...saved myself from it! I did polish off both of the babycakes in a few days all by my lonesome. Bad Cassie!

Wow, that looks GOOD - I love pineapple upside down cake, too. Fortunately for my waistline, you're a bit too far away, so your cake is safe ... from me, anyway. :)

Hurray! You grew your own cherries! :-D Next year you'll have more, I bet. Your cakes look yummy, Cassie.

Yum, Yum! You have made me hungry for something sweet! I have been craving a peach cobbler!

The pineapple upside down cake looks very yummy. I could sit down with you and eat it with a cup of tea or coffee.

I wish cherries would grow down here in the South. :< but it's way too hot for them.

Now I am feeling inspired to do those hanging gardens next year.
Running joke from some friends of mine ages ago: "Do you think the rain will hurt the rhubarb?"
"Not if it's canned!"

We are still getting a good crop of rhubarb from our "forced" rhubarb plant Cassie! It never gets as far as a recipe tho, we eat it stewed.........with plain yoghurt. I would love to make a crumble or a pie, but hey, it is just gobbled up. Without even asking!
