    Saisburys 250 gm of cherries for 1. 50. That's 6 per kilo - they're a bit cheaper on the market, around 3. 50 per kilo. You'll have to do the conversion to euros if that's what you're using

    ( not that I'd ever spend that much on cherries!!!...nice though to share them out a bit..I've probably given away about 10kg to friends and neighbours..and munched a few myself !!)

    Wow! Thats a crop and a half Just out of curiosity, from how many trees? And how did you keep the birds off?
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom boom boom

    One tree!!!

    2 years ago we picked 22kg and left at least the same in the tree out of reach!!!!

    Birds have only just started to take them- so no netting or anything!!!!

    I had hoped this would have been a biennial bumper year- but it's the same as last years crop.
    Not bad though eh????

    ( each cherry weighs 10g!!!!)
