And the first pears from Beth

It must be a woman thing - the pear tree Beth is also yielding her first pears today just like the Katy apple trees.

In fact I harvested Beth's entire crop this evening as I scared off a squirrel who left a half eaten pear beneath the tree. And I'm not going to lose another fruit to these pests.

The rounded fruit are thankfully ripe - still a little crisp and tasty but just about ready to drop. I've got about two dozen in all from a tree no taller than five feet. A reasonable crop

So now I'll need pear recipes too.
