Before she could make yummy orange marmalade, though, the cherry's had to lose their pits. Now, cherry's are big business in the Flathead valley--there are orchards everywhere and there are many that are pick your own not to mention all the road side cherry sellers. So, Erik's folks had like 100 lbs of cherrys or something like that. That's a lot of cherry's! And even though they are soooo good just plain, you can only eat so many cherries. And pitting cherries can be time-consuming when done by hand so Erik's mom invested in a pitter not too long ago and that it what we used to pit a bunch of cherries.
Lindsay really enjoyed pitting cherries.
It was kind of a messy job.
What Kera did while we pitted.
Kera's new dress: a pillowcase turned into a sundress. The pillowcase use to be Erik's sisters!
