There are only a few sour cherries on the trees this year.. I was about to go out and put the netting over the trees, when I decided that the labor of doing so was not worth the few cherries I'd save..It's a very long and frustrating job to cover every tree with netting. Sooo.. the birds will have the few that are there before they even ripen. lt's hard to do it!! it's mostly robins.. and it's always a battle with them, they act like they''re the rightful owners.. and pay no attention to me.. when I do net the trees I feel such relief! Aw well.. so it goes.. the birds get their way this time.. Nick
