Freecycle Cherries

I put out a "wanted" on the freecycle and got a response for pie cherries. We didn't get tons but enough for 3 or 4 pies. Mr. Greenjeans loves cherry pie so we will have one on his birthday and another at Thanksgiving.

My Mom and Dad are here visiting and the picking time was at dinner time and so Mr. Greenjeans was in charge of the grill and I took Chibi and our ladder and went off. I felt slightly guilty leaving the company but we weren't gone long.

In all the activity of the evening, Ms. Bunny was left out in her exercise run after dark, when I thought to check on her, she had escaped. We all searched the bushes for her with flashlights but didn't find her. Mr. Greenjeans filled her feeder and changed her water and left the hutch door open for her to come home, but when I got up this morning, no Ms. Bunny.

I was standing at the sink dealing with cherries and looked up and there she was! She had climbed back into her cage and was drinking out of her waterer. I went out and greeted her and she put herself to bed for a long nap.

She is such a cool rabbit, I'm glad she came home.

I'm going to try your little cherry trick you told me about. That's also a great idea to find extra fruit--I hadn't thought of that! I might have to do that when peaches and apples are ripe for picking!

Glad your bunny came home!

Thank you for your comment you left on my recent post. I'm about the most technically-illiterate person around, but I do know a couple steps on changing headers and background colors on Blogger. My email is jargil@juno.com if you want me to mail you the 2 or 3 things I do to change mine :)

What a good idea to post about freecycle about picking cherries or any other fruit! I'm going to have to try that. We need more blackberries.

Hmm, I wonder if Freecycle would work for getting rid of zucchinis...
