Picking and pitting cherries

Yesterday we went cherry picking at someone's house.  That tree was packed with em'!  You would pick a bunch and think that was all - then you would see another branch that had about 100 cherries on it!  You didn't really have to move around at all the whole time (even though we did to make it not so boring).

Then last night we had to pit them all so we could get grandma's pitter back by 9 in the morning :)  These little tart cherries didn't really work that well in the pitter.  It was easier to do them by hand - so Mom used the pitter and I just pulled the pits out by the stem.  It was kind of tedious and we finished by midnight - so I was really tired this morning - didn't want to get out of my warm bed :)  But we have 9 pies worth of pitted cherries!!! :)  Yummo!
