The L.s have papers showing the homestead was established 1898, and one of the accomplishments achieved in the first few years, was planting a magnificent Royal Anne cherry tree. This tree is amazing, and produces a quantity of fruit that is hard to visualize.
A few years ago, Grandpa B. had a flatbed loaded with hay that he drove under the tree. There was a ladder next to the truck to climb up the truck and on the top of the hay bales. Only then could I reach the bottom tier of the sour cherry tree. I don't know how many pounds I picked, but when I was done, I had my Saturn's trunk filled with cherries. And when I stepped back to look at the tree, it looked so heavily loaded that it was hard to tell that I even picked!
