Photo of the Day: July 23, 2016 – Cherry Inspection at Johnson Farms


Cherry farmers on the Old Mission Peninsula are right in the midst of harvesting cherries. Here’s a photo of a few cherries getting the once-over before getting loaded onto a truck and shipped off for processing. Beautiful, aren’t they? Most of the farmers have wrapped up sweet cherries (what you see in the photo) and are now into tarts.

The hands you see are those of Cory Reamer, who runs the Johnson Farms cooling pad along with his wife/my niece Heatherlyn Johnson Reamer. There’s a lot of cherries on the trees this year, and all the farmers could use good thoughts for a successful second-half of the season with no major storms and the stamina to get through it!
