Over at Conglomerate, native Wisconsin cheese head Gordon Smith has been posting about his study of artisan cheese makers. I wish I had something blog-relevant to say about this, but here in northern lower Michigan, the big thing is cherries. At left you see a tub of these lovelies, tart Montmorency cherries picked from our cherry tree in front of the house (this morning, by yours truly, on an OSHA-compliant twelve-foot ladder) and now destined for a cherry crisp. (They are much redder than this picture makes them appear - my lousy cell phone camera.) If you happen to be in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by and pick a few yourself (hurry, the birds are eating them) after signing the appropriate waiver of liability.
