We have four pear trees on our property that we planted two years ago. We will get about thirty pears from those trees this year. Our neighbor, Mr. Miller, (he is the gentleman whom we bought the property from) has two very old pear trees on his property. He called me last week and told me that he has never seen them bear this much fruit before. He asked if Andrew and I wanted them? He said that he was never going to eat that many pears. Andrew and I and the girls went over there and picked the pears from his trees. I figured we would get thirty to forty pears. I was wrong, we got a whole bunch more than that! When we were done picking we had filled three five gallon buckets of pears! Andrew is making some pear wine. I will let you know in a few months how that turned out. His father made wine as a hobby for years, mainly apple and boysenberry. He got pretty good at it. So Andrew is going to follow in his father's footsteps and make some wine.
