Time to Harvest Bush Cherries and Red Currants

As we grow into the heart of summer... and the grapes firm and grow...

We collected almost 10 pounds of bush cherries this weekend:

That will make almost two gallons of 2007 Chez Ray Sweet Bush Cherry wine. We were enjoying the 2005 vintage of that sweet wine this weekend too, between picnic courses.
