I think I can, I think I can

Kev and I have been picking a lot of pears lately. Now is the time to harvest our pear trees and store the fruit in the cellar until it's all ripe.

Then Zjani will teach me about canning and jamming and other forms of pear preservation. I'm very excited.

While plucking pears, Kev and I noticed this lonely little apple on our apple tree's dying branches.

It seems like a tough little guy. Resistant to the strong canyon winds. Blushing red from the sun. Somehow getting nutrients from a scraggly limb on which nothing else bloomed.

Where there's a will, there's a way.

  1. I am sort of jealous you have access to a pear tree!

  2. It is quite divine to have free fruit right in my yard.
