Last hours of the cherry harvest, rare moments in a man's life to hold such cherries.

Mark on the ladder, look at his appropriate footwear.
Felt good to harvest such good cherries at the end of this season.
Some beautiful Diamond Pearl nectarines, a white flesh Bradford variety.
My sons Tom and Mark, it was good to have Tom home to help with the harvest and Mark as always.
My good wife Jenny a good fruitier and flower arranger.

Mark is more of an asset every year.
Our neighbours pigs who enjoy all our waste fruit.
42 days on my feet today in the harvest, with stonefruit to pick until Christmas.
Wouldn't have it any other way.
Best wishes to all.
