Yes it is time to start talking about cherries!
It looks like a nice crop similar to last year,  and the weather is also similar so we may grow nice big cherries again.  Fruit is quite dependent on those perfect conditions for setting a crop and growing it to a good size, so far, so good, for the cherries.  As we get closer to harvest they will also be needing dry, calm, mild conditions.  
As for the date of harvest we think we are 2 to 3 weeks ahead of our usual harvest and that will put this years harvest around mid June.  I will update this message when we can be more precise.  We begin with Bings and the Thomcinn pie cherries and the Rainiers and Montmorency pie cherries are around a week  later.  Everything depends on weather, if it gets hot everything can just ripen up immediately.
In the next few days I will send a test email to make sure I still can send them, for some reason the first ones always seem to be a problem.
