I gotta Pear!!

Doesn't have the same inflection. When I saw my first pea, I ran in the house shouting "I GOTTA PEA! I GOTTA PEA!" and my mother said "well THERE'S the bathroom!" Not the same here but I finally harvested my two Pear trees. I think I have FINALLY gotten in the same BALLPARK as EG and Granny. I harvested 135 lb of Pears!

I also harvest 2 1/2 lbs of cucumbers and peppers and stuff, and 3 lbs a few days before that. I gotta figure up how much the total is! 175 lb total! wow! hehehe I love pears.


  1. Good for you! Are ya gonna make preserves with them? I made preserves and also pear butter last year, and the folks REALLY liked the pear butter.

  2. Oh, man! Congrats on great harvests! What are you going to do with all of those pears?!?! Reminds me, I should check our pear tree...

  3. Get out of town!!! How many pears makes up 175 lbs? That's crazy awesome.

  4. WOW...175 pounds? That's great! You want my mailing address?


  5. I swear I have already posted replies but I guess not!

    EG-My next door neighbor has 2 pear trees and he gave me some of his. I made pear preserves from that. It tasted like Apple butter. It is GOOD! So...not sure what else to make with them! lol

    Momma-thanks. I have no idea what I am going to do with them.

    Ribbit-Thanks! I was shocked myself. And there is still about 1/3 left on the trees. Either I couldnt get to them (with a very long "lopper" we call it) or they were too small to get.

    Granny-LOL You're funny

  6. Those pears look great! Love pears!
