Fresh Tasmanian Cherries
A new generation cherry tree.
Time to prune.
Cherry blossom time!
Cherry spring blossoms.
Cherry blossom time! The bees love it too!
Not quite ready yet!
Very nearly there, just another day or two…
Time to get to work.
Ready to pick.
And it’s great talking to back packer pickers about their world and their travels!
Our whole family gets very busy… including the dog!
And it’s full on picking time!
The boss getting rid of some leaves that fall in.
Cooling the fruit down in the coolroom.
Just a modest size…
Oh so ready to eat!
Our large dam that provides water for the cherries
Cherry cones that sell like, well, hotcakes!
Cherry season is finished…time to do some sheep work.
Freshly shorn merino wool
The sheep being let loose in the lucerne.
Very old leftover orchards of apples and pears
The farm barns from the other side.
The farm barns were built by convicts in the 1820’s.
Bales of hay for winter feeding.
Our farmyard with the sheep gratings and the stables
Typical farmyard morning.
The geese think they control the farmyard
Getting ready for a day of hard work.
Fresh eggs, anyone?
We could get two pots of gold here!
The White Kangaroo River in flood.
The view from our farm house.
My favourite geese and gosling picture.
Another view from our garden.
Our new look for this year.
Sheep caught in the act coming back with a load of cherries!
Some of our 2018 pickers – another great crew!
Definitely the last cherry pickin’ season for these boots!
