pears and apples oh my!!
My SIL and I went out to one of my aunts house to pick some. We were just going to get pears, but then they offered the apples and we decided to take them. They'll make good apple cider and maybe a pie or two!! My aunt has plenty of acres for the kiddos to run around and they had a blast eating pears climbing the trees and watching their crazy aunt or mother shake the trees to get the pears out! We had a rope and a ladder that we used because most of the pears were on the top of the tree. So I climbed the ladder and one of my nieces could get a little higher them me and put the rope around one of the branches. Then with the rope I could really shake the pear tree. Got knocked in the head a few times, and slime down my back once, but it was all fun. I liked watching the kiddos run around laugh and giggle. My boy went with his daddy for the day, so he was not around.
Next week my SIL and I will be canning the pears we got. And maybe we'll press some cider some evening with the boys (our husbands) and kiddos! That's always fun too. It's always more fun to harvest and can together with someone and press some cider! Makes the work go faster, and it's always fun to laugh with a friend!
Have a great rest of the weekend!
