It's hard to tell but that's one huge basket FULL of pears from my own back yard... I know it's a little early to pick pears but they were falling off the tree in record numbers and I was determined to make lots of pear stuff this year so I wasn't going to let any more be sacrificed. There's still about 15-20 pears on the tree that I can't really reach - I am thinking with all my fruit trees it would be worth investing in one of those fruit tree picker things with the nets that catch the fruit from falling to the ground... I have no idea what they are called and I am sure when I give this description at the garden store I will get a funny look as always.
I am super excited to make stuff with the pears - I LOVE PEARS!
