I need some help from the community on two head scratchers from around our garden. First, this cherry tree:
To say it’s tucked away in a corner of our yard is an understatement; we barely noticed its existence behind hay and structural refuse until it set some fruit. I imagine this poor gal has been neglected for some time.
I’ve never had a cherry tree before. The fruit has a ripe consistency, but it’s s-o-u-r. Thoughts? Is there any chance that letting it spend more time on the tree will result in sweeter (and not just bird-pecked) fruit? And, assuming the answer to that last question is no… any suggestions on what to do with tiny, sour cherries?
In other news, there is garlic randomly interspersed about the garden. We didn’t plant it and we’ve been here since September, so it’s pretty old. If not pulled up, does garlic come back the next year? And could its age account for these weird little growths, which I’m guessing are garlic babies?
At least one inquiring mind will be grateful for any insight you might have!
