Yeah, in hindsight, I should have saved yesterday’s post for today, and posted a video on the regular day. Oh well. Today’s video may or may not be timely for you, because I’m not sure how many pears there are on the trees this year. There should be some, but since last year was such a bumper crop, the harvest will likely be smaller this year.

If you aren’t familiar with harvesting European pears (what we traditionally think of as pears), it is sometimes a surprise that you don’t want to let the fruit ripen on the tree. This video tells about getting your pears to the point where they are tasty to eat!
