Harvest begins

In my own backyard I have an abundance of mature fruit trees. Apples, cherries, plums and a solitary pear...although I use the word pear tree loosely as it it not even 5 ft tall with more than 3 branches! Each year it produces a few small pears which are very tasty. I had planned to make apple pear jelly with a few of my apples and these pears, but we ate the pears instead.
