June 8, 2015: Cherries from Washington State

June 8, 2015: Northwest Cherries from Washington State | Jane Boursaw Photo, 2015

Seeing cherries in local grocery stores imported from Washington State has always been a sore spot among local farmers. I guess I’m ok with it during times when local cherries aren’t ripe enough for picking (at this point, they’re just tiny green nubs).

It’s when you see imported cherries during our harvest season that it’s irksome. Anyway, I noticed these while wandering through Family Fare today. They don’t look all that appetizing, do they?

A lifelong resident of the Old Mission Peninsula, Jane grew up on a cherry farm (Johnson Farms), married the boy next door (Tim Boursaw), and raised two kids there (Will and Marissa). Her 35-year career as a photojournalist includes bylines with the New York Times and Ladies' Home Journal, and interviews with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. But she loves writing about the OMP most of all.
