Last year the birds got every single cherry over avout 2 days 1 This year we have put huge piece of organza and now massive strips of tin foil all over the tree, but the same little GIT of a bird is living in my tree and scoffing the lot ! Half are ready and other half are green just turning red a little. My question is... if i pick the lot can i ripen them with an overripe banana like i did tomatoes so we get them before BIG BIRD ? I think but not sure they are cooking cherries, although dd has eaten about ten and was fine. Anyway how can i use / store them ? Was hoping i could somehow freeze them for future pies crumbles etc ? They do look lovely ! x
We picked the last of our cherries over the weekend 4.5kg! Made jam and will do compote / cherries in syrup with rest. We'd aleready been eating them over rthe last couple of weeks. A big blackbird had found our tree this weekend so we had to act fast. Normallyu our cat keeps the birds off - this one kept coming early in morning and waking us up too.
