Some may question the frog-toad thing

Nudged out again by somebody on broadband, no doubt.

The two frogs, if you will, are really toads. Being that the are brown and bumpy-skin, they are toads. We have one that every winter he buries himself in the ground and 'hops' out in the spring. We had snails one year, too. They were climbing all over the place. Had two crawling up our front door as if they were in a race to get to the top. All kinds of critters we get around the front door.

D-d-definitely frogs. Ribbit!

Like the pics, but I'm wondering, are there cherry trees on the Keweenaw (based on the 2nd pic of Yoopers cherry picking)?

By Sharon I. Smith (Sharons) on Saturday, August 1, 2009 - 10:29 am:

Thomas - there are definitely sour (pie) cherries in Copper Harbor. A friend I saw Thursday was going to spend yesterday making cherry jam.

Have any interesting "how..." questions to add to the list? Let's educate people about the Upper Peninsula.

We used to have two cherry trees in our back yard in Lake Linden when I was a kid.

The so-called toads looked smoothe like frogs to me.

Sharon: Thanks 4 the info on cherry trees at Copper Harbor. You learn something new every day, as I thought it was only Oceana County + the Traverse City Region that had them. Another part of Michigan I'm wondering has cherry trees is the area between Petoskey + Mackinaw City, because on our annual trek 2 Batchawana Bay, Canada, I c roadside stands on US-31 with cherries 4 sale (BTW, 4 trivia buffs, US-31, in the 1930's, continued from St. Ignace 2 what later became the US-2/M-123 junction. It later became part of US-2).

By JH (Thumbgardener) on Sunday, August 2, 2009 - 10:45 am:

Thomas, there are also cherry trees, both sweet and tart in the thumb and in southern Michigan. There is an orchard near Vassar that has both tart and sweet and I think there is one near Dryden. The orchard near Vassar had "pick you own" for 99 cents a pound. They are all done now.

I read that the Traverse City area had to get their cherries for the festival from the southern part of the state this year because their crop wasn't ready yet.
