Cherry Season comes and goes so quickly, lasting only about a month from mid-May to Mid-June. It has become a tradition of ours to drive an hour east to Brentwood, CA to pick cherries. We give each of the kids a small bucket, so we don't accidentally fill one of the large 5 gallon buckets the farm provides you with. We did that one year and ended up with $100 worth of cherries. Ooops!
