Fall Fest 2010We’re teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Summer Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market.

I can’t get enough of sour cherries. Growing up in Ohio, I’d spend the first half of June up in the cherry tree, reaching for every last can’t-help-but-pucker gem.
