This was actually a great year as far as cherries go. Generally, when Washington state has a good cherry crop the farmers will turn the pickers away because it costs more to pick and process the cherries than they can make at market. This year wasn't too bad. At least once in the last few years, the whole region let them rot on the trees because Washington was too successful. They would do some pick your own, but nothing made it through the processing plant.
