In Season, In Progress

Tell me that when you bite into that first cherry of the season and spit out the pit, you don’t flash, even for a moment, on The Witches of Eastwick. I used to not like cherries, can you believe it? (I attribute this to the horrid “cherry-flavored” children’s medicines I grew up with.) We enjoyed an amazing dessert of fresh black cherries served over ice at a restaurant last week, but I haven’t been able to find them in markets here. Pictured above are red cherries; they’re like candy. I also like Bing and Rainier varieties.

Posting may be a bit light this week, as I’m having some major work done…on the blog, bien sur.


Don’t worry, I’m working with pros. We’re down to finishing touches. I hope to be able to reveal the results soon. Stay tuned!

Edited to add: all systems are Go. If you have trouble accessing une femme in the next day or so, please know that I haven’t gone dark, and keep trying. Comments will be disabled in order to make the transfer, apologies for that.

What are your favorite cherry varieties?

    I love Bing cherries. Every summer, as soon as they come into season, I buy pounds and pounds and pounds of them. After washing and pitting them, I freeze them so that during the cold months I can have cherries in my oatmeal, cherries on top of my Greek yogurt, cherry pie, cherry cake…

    I love the limited cherry varieties in my time and we actually have a big tree in our garden but the birds always get to them first. This year, we’re hoping to ‘reserve’ a few branches for ourselves weather permitting.
    Good luck with all the blog work!

    I love to pack a big bag of bing cherries for a snack at the beach! Nothing tastes better!

    Love cherries served on a bed of ice.. or from an “ice bowl” – beautiful.. I also did not like the taste of cherries when I was younger though. S x

    I love cherries but I’m going to have to smack you for reminding me of that awful Witches of Eastwick cherry incident! Now I”m always going to think of that!
