Pear Pickin’

008A few days ago the girls, Jared and I went out to pick the very first crop of pears we’ve gotten from the few trees we planted. 005The girls were good helpers at first! 010 017Then, the six-wheeler occupied them for a while so we were able to get them all off the tree. 018

We are currently trying to ripen the pears so we can determine whether their quality is good enough to sell. We found that you pick pears before they are ripe because the rot from the inside out…if they are falling, it could be too late. I hope ours taste good…I really like pears. I’ll keep you posted! I must say, it was a lot of fun picking those pears!
