Please be aware that unharvested cherries provide a feast for birds and squirrels. This may be a wonderful thing if you live in the country, but in a neighborhood that feast leaves an awful mess on yards, walkways, roofs. Cherry pits and the, shall I say, digestive results of eating cherries are not pleasant and are intense for several weeks. Our little dog thinks the squirrels are leaving her treats but I suspect cherry pits are not a healthy dog treat. That said, we live in cherry country and they are certainly one of our favorite things to buy at the local farm stands!

Not only do the birds get the cherrys but they wake you up at 4:30 am doing it
