Sounds great. Unfortunately the birds got all my cherries just as they ripened. They must have been sitting in wait. :lol:

Still picking white grapes for sultanas, I would think we are about half way through.
The black grapes were finished a few weeks ago, not such a good crop as last year for some reason, but we have just over a Kilo of raisins from 7 Kg of fruit.

Yeah, birds got most of my (very few) cherries, too. But I left the red currant uncovered this year for the birds - I can't use them all anyway.
