Author's Notes:
My third drabble for Challenge 398: Cherry at tw100.

Summary: The cherry trees are growing, but Jack prefers things that give instant results.

Time passed; Ianto lavished care on the three little cherry trees and they flourished, putting out strong branches. Once in a while Jack would wander over, hands in pockets, to look at them. “Isn’t it easier to just buy cherries?”

“Of course it is, but that’s not the point. I like the idea of growing our own, without pesticides and other chemicals. You don’t complain about the tomato plants and the peppers.”

“We’re already getting fruit off those.”

“They’re only annuals, they have to grow faster. You can’t have everything immediately, Jack. Good things come to those who wait.”
