Pear Tree

This pear tree was planted 3 years ago
first year about 10 pears and I was so pleased
last year - no pears.
The end of a busy day outside, probably did more then I should
but as long as I pace myself have the thoughts this is good for me.

Came inside and decided to go back outside with cane in hand
and walk down the drive where the pear tree is planted.

Oh my there must be 50 pears on the tree and hopefully they
stay on the tree and will make pear preserves this Fall with
the 100 year old recipe my mother gave me years ago from her elderly neighbor.
Guess it does not
take much
to make

We rarely see fruit on our pear or apple trees. Between the squirrels and the raccoons we get maybe one fruit each!!

Fruit trees can be so fickle and suddenly so generous. We had a plum tree that would one year provide a handful of useless wizened old bits then the next year branches heavy with beautiful sweet heavy plums. Your patience has been rewarded! Anne xx

I hope they make it to your jars.

I would be happy to see those as well.

What a lovely surprise....they are beautiful and show great promise for those preserves. Isn't it wonderful to have those old recipes that yield such delicious treats?
Happy day.....I bet your garden is beautiful in all areas, and you've had that nice rain!

I'd like to reach up and get a ripe one to eat!! Where ever I lived, we always had fruit trees. Apple, peach, pear, cherry. They grow well in Michigan. Have fun--pace yourself. YES--it is good for you!!!
