    Hi,
    Mine must have eloped with someone. I use a catsup bottle and a chop stick.

    Greg - Last summer, I pitted almost 20 pounds of cherries using wine bottles and a chopstick. When one bottle was full of pits, I'd have to find another. Since I don't generally keep empty wine bottles lying around, DH & I had to do a bit of drinking before I could finish the cherries.

    I'd call it a labor of love - and one that I doubt I'll EVER try again!

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    Sometimes it's hard for me to conceptualize how to do things without seeing a demonstration. In case anybody else is like me, here is a YouTube video on how to use a chopstick and a wine bottle to pit cherries. And now I know!

    Greg’s cherry pit-eating bird, specifically rosiculus devourus.

    It needs to feed on the pits to maintain its red hues, Important in mating.

    Hi,
    I put them out for the squirrels. I look to see them try and crack them since they can't they usually bury them. Hoping to see some new cherry trees. In my feeders the birds come, the squirrels come and the deer come, all to eat the seeds. Since the feeders are lower to the ground the deer eat the seeds and NOT my plants. especially my Hostas. Everyone else's Hostas ge5t chewed to nothing, mine all look wonderful.

    Greg, after all the hours of getting those darn pits INTO the bottles, I wasn't about to spend even another MINUTE trying to get them OUT!
