I actually had to wait until I got a crop of cherries before I even knew for sure that it was a cherry tree! All my arborist could tell me was that it was a fruit tree, and he recommended that I keep it to see if it produced. Apparently, fruit trees that are gifts from squirrels and birds often don't produce much in the way of a crop. Or, perhaps it's that they don't produce true-to-type ... or however that would be expressed. Best I can tell, though -- by comparing the cherries to pics on the Internet -- is that I've got a Rainier cherry tree. It pumps out beautiful sweet cherries like crazy every season! They look like Rainiers and ripen at the right time.
The guys may have been late, but they seem to have fixed the darned dishwasher! ([img]https://www.clipartof.com/images/emoticons/xsmall2/2246_praying.gif[/img]) It's new, and still under warranty. but the repairman from the store has been out here 6 times trying to fix it, and he failed every time. It would run for 2 weeks, then quit. If it quits again, I'm going to demand that the store take it back. I've had
it with the blasted thing.
