Bongo and I went to get some pears at the Cherry Shack Orchard just down the road.
It's been such a warm fall here, but the skies are gray from the wildfires burning all around our state. I figured pears would be the perfect pick me up.
Boy, was I right!
Pears are juicy, pears are sweet, pears from the Cherry Shack can't be beat! hee hee
Did you know that pears get picked before they ripen? Once they ripen, they actually fall of the tree. Going to the orchard is the best because they can direct you to the best picking and let you know how many days it will take before your pears will ripen up. They also have plenty on hand that are ready to be eaten now.
I recently walked the Cherry Shack Orchard with it's owner, Brad (that's him holding the pear above), and learned lots about his crops. I'll introduce you to him and his family here on the blog soon.
Now I want to bake something delicious. We'll see what I come up with....
P.S. The view from World Headquarters is dreamy. Pumpkins as far as the eye can see.
We gathered pumpkins last night for our front porch. Now it seems to be exclaiming, "Hello, friend!" when we pull into the driveway. I like that.
I've been to three wedding in the last few weeks. Love is in the air!
P.P.S. I've missed you. We'll be seeing more of each other soon.
