It's nearing that time of year: time for the cherry harvest. These days, I sit in an office all day and code. When I was young, I helped shake cherries for summers in a row. Ah, the lessons I learned on the farm... like that I didn't want to be shaking cherries for the rest of my life ergo my current occupation as a software developer.
