...for being really pleased and excited that the first cherries I've had this year have just arrived in the veg box?

They are so delicious and summery. It may be quite cold and bustery outside but having eaten about half a pound of them I feel like putting on a summer dress and possibly free-wheeling down a car-free road on my bike smile.

I bought first cherries of the season today too! I was a bit underwhelmed by them; I suspect they need a bit of time to ripen.

They are sort of decadent and summery though, YANBU grin

We had some last week but were not very sweet sad
Just waiting for fresh peas now as I eat them raw

Underwhelmed here too and they gave me the shits sad

Oh no, I am so sorry to hear about all these disappointing cherry experiences. Mine are lovely, I hope they don't give me the shits though as I already working at home as I'm ill!

Oh, the wonder of fresh peas, Supermummy. I haven't grown any this year, but I definitely will next year.

Our cherrys were lovely-at least those that we managed to get to before the birds wereangry Peas are great too, but the dog keeps nicking those! grin

My dogs especially my Molly loves peas. Not had any cherries yet

YANBU at all. I had some a couple of weeks ago. Delicious and so summery; they just make me smile.

Free-wheeling down the road on your bike?? there is something strange in those cherries OP.

The wild strawberries have spread everywhere in our garden this year grin
I picked lots and there's still zillions.
