Ruby Tuesday: Cherries

We have a cherry tree in our side yard and we're expecting a harvest every year. But when this tree started to burst, little chipmunks will eat them all. I realized that squirrel chasers won't work. So I came up with this idea....
Only 9 cherries left? Not even enough to feed a family of 3....lol!
Akesha deserves to eat them all. Now I know what to do next year. I just need to buy a few packs of sandwich bag.

Yeah, Dhemz, even here in the Phils., they wrap the unripe fruits loosely with plastic bags so the rodents won't beat them into eating the fruits first.

Ang ganda naman nang bahay ninyo at maraming fruit bearing trees katulad nang cherries. Mabuti naman at nasolusyunan mo yung problema sa mga squirrels. Kawawa naman kasi kung babarilin sila dahil lamang sa kumakain sila nang cherries. Ang alam kasi nang mga small creatures of God ay divine providence ang lahat nang bunga nang mga puno. Matutuwa si Akesha sa mga cherries na yan. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
