Can She Bake a Cherry Pie, Billy Boy?

How many of you have savored a home-made cherry pie made from cherries you grew and picked yourself? We are blessed to live on a small property with a few fruit trees and two of them are cherry trees. One is a bing type cherry, very tasty for eating. The other is a pie cherry - tiny little cherries that have the perfect mix of tart and sweet. It takes a fair bit of work, and you have to be the early bird to beat the the others birds to the cherries. But once or twice a year, we enjoy cherry pies like nothing we've ever tasted. It just goes to show "there's no place like home."
