We have only one poor disabled cherry tree (due to ice storm 3 yrs ago). Jim lifts me up into the tree via his tractor bucket and I pick. We did this 3 times this season and harvested 3 gallons which then have to be pitted. I canned 9 quarts and 1 pint of pie filling. 4 jars of cherry jam, and made a cherry cheesecake. Delicious! I use Clear Jel from the Amish market for my filling; it turns out thick and clear, like the commercial product.
We are one of the oldest parks in the valley and within walking distance of the famous Don-Wes Flea Market. Along with being one of the oldest we also have the wonderful reputation for being a friendly and active park. We have an association of members who give generously of their time in a myriad of ways to make coming to the Rio Grande Valley each winter a whole bunch of fun for everyone. So come on down and have fun with us!!!
