Pear feast

Guess what we're doing today?

Our neighbors have 80 pear trees in their orchard,
with several various varieties.

In their fullness the past few weeks, we were invited to feast on the harvest, therefore one son eagerly waltzed over with a big bucket to fill up. When it was heavier than he had anticipated, he strolled to the barn to fetch the wheelbarrow, but then I realized he was bringing home "work" for us, and no time was available at that moment to complete the work involved with his good intentions. The hand stop signal went up until further notice, so today we work to get these yummy pears in our food storage.
