About a month after asparagus had begun, I was lucky enough to get to do some cherry picking. It's really fun because you get to eat as you go and what can be better than that, right?
Below you will see how it's done.
The trickiest part is the use of the aluminum ladders. Once you're on top and have to lean over to grab the cherries that are just out of reach, you risk falling off. Though these ladders are quite stable and have spikes on the bottoms to properly grip the ground, if you put too much weight on one side, it starts to topple over. Thankfully I didn't fall, though my boss did. I saw her begin to scream and looked over only to watch her literally fall through the trees. Luckily she was okay. It was really scary and I made sure to get properly balanced each time I got up there.
