Living in a high desert atmosphere you realize what a blessing trees are.
They give blessed relief with their shade.
A while back we decided that one of the trees in the back yard might be a pear.
Today Michael picked what he could reach and this is a picture of some of it.
Now neither one of us has ever really gone out of our way to eat a pear. That being said, neither one of us can stand the thought of this bounty going to waste.
What to do?
Well, today we bought this - -
We are going to attempt some canning of pear jam .
I will keep you posted on the jam making and we will continue to be thankful for our blessings.
