We had a pretty big windstorm blow thru the last couple of days....
....I guess that's one way to get all the pears... just let the wind blow them down.
Most of the pears blew down. They were probably about ready but I would have preferred to pick them when I was ready. We got 3 or 4 five gallon buckets full and another bucket of "bad" ones for the pigz.
So I'll work on canning the pears in the next couple of days. We have rain moving in and I'll have an inside day or two. By then the pears should be ripe. So pear sauce, pear cake, pear pie, pear tart, pear crisp.. you name it, it will all be on the menu.
And now for a gratuitous adorable puppy picture......you knew I couldn't resist.
Zander is doing great. He has a lot of Kai's behaviors which is really fun to see. He uses his paws like a cat would...and he figured out how to roll down the hill on purpose just 'cuz it's fun. Cutest. Thing. Ever. We are entirely smitten with this little pup. He still has that "new puppy" smell.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Anyone else working on canning pears?
