    The saying is that good things come in small packages, and these small pears are looking pretty good!

    They are just babies right now, but the deer may leave us a few to enjoy in August. Maybe.

    Those are looking perky. What kind are those? Are they for eating or for cooking?

    We assume they are eating pears (or so the deer tell us.) As to the variety, I don't know since I failed to enter the tree in my garden book, and the tree ain't telling!

    Hahaha, so the deer tell you... I hope you'll get to taste them yourself this year. After all that work you deserve them.

    Those look great!
    A lot of ours were lost to late frost. I don't know how many, yet.
    Our dear star away from pears but eat all of the leaves. I did strategic pruning in hopes of reducing that problem.
