Simple Pleasures: Picking Cherries at Robinette’s

Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MIThis morning was the first day Robinette’s was open for picking cherries, so we were there bright and early! Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MI. 2 The cherries are gorgeous, and at $1.75 per pound, they’re really a great deal, at least for us in Michigan! Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MI. 8 For the next three weeks, my life is going to be joyously filled to overflowing with kids and grand kids, which means I won’t be writing much, Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MI. 6 but I’m hoping to have a few minutes to post a picture or two just thinking about the simple pleasures related to family life, Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MI. 7 keeping connected with loved ones, and happy news.Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MI. 3 Carlie said this morning she wished there was a news source where they only print uplifting, good news. Picking Cherries at Robinette's Orchard, GR, MI. 5 I try hard to be one such source, but the true source of “good news” is the Bible, which is filled with encouragements for living and the best news of all:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

  1. What fun! I remember so well picking cherries with our kids in GR area. No cherries to pick where we are now 😦 We have to get them brought up from the Niagara region. Glad you can enjoy your kids & grandkids this way 🙂 God bless!

    1. Thanks, Sharon! We still miss you all too. Of course, being near Niagara Falls is probably wonderful too, especially with your chapel family. 🙂

  2. Our cherry tree is full of cherries at the moment, but the only one who eats them is Christoph as evey second one has a grub! I must find out when the right time is to spray them. Until now we have been using big yellow stickers to catch the fruit flies, but that has not been successful. It is really a shame, but the birds are having a field day!

    1. Sorry about the grubs. My aunt used to have a cherry tree with grubs, but Mom made cherry pie and said the baking cooked out the bacteria and the grubs just added protein. Of course, we all said, “Oh yuck,” but the pie was so good we’d eat it anyway and didn’t notice the grubs after they were cooked! 🙂 Our cherry tree was full of racoons this summer! Our coons and 4 kits stripped it of most of the cherries, and what they didn’t get, the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks polished off before the cherries turned from red to black. 😦
