The first harvest of the season

At last! A harvest from our homestead. We've been here 2 and a half years but this is the first year we've had a vegetable garden and our cherry tree is doing amazing!

You can also see my latest creation - a cherry picking apron. I made this out of a vintage handtowel that I loved and some left over fabric remnants. It worked wonderfully! With four long deep pockets I was able to fit alot of cherries in my apron before having to climb back down the ladder. There is nothing worse about harvesting when you're up on a teatering ladder trying to hold onto a bowl full of cherries. Cheers!

(Oh, and our eggs for the day from our Rhode Island Reds).
