June, and the cherry harvest is in
Welcome June! though how you got here so fast is a puzzle again. And here's the entire harvest of my cherry bushes from the front walk. I got in ahead of the robins who have not only staked out the bushes, but have built a nest across the path in a handy shrub. These are on the sour side, but still good.
Freecycling today is about aloe vera. Two nice containers of them, grown from babes, ready to go to eager people this afternoon, one whose husband drowned the last one and is instructed never again to water them, and one whose daughter has been on her case for an aloe and the mom was not sure where to find one.
I keep them in the kitchen, as a quick burn remedy, since I burn the back of my hand regularly in the course of forgetfully checking what's in the oven. So I still have one big pot of this stuff for my own use.
And greet her, of course, with aloe there!
