Pear Season

Pears are ripening now! Along with apples & grapes-- tomatoes still green mostly, but we're heading into a bit of heat so maybe they'll turn soon.
We planted our pear tree, a seckel, -- several years ago, bare root. There have been a few pears here or there, but this years harvest looks to be far more bountiful. A friend helped us to try to prune it properly this spring-- maybe that's part of it-- plus its maturity, no doubt, and agreeable weather conditions...

My tomatoes are green as well.

Your pears look sweet. I haven't eaten one in a while, looking at yours reminded me.
