Pear Picking

Next Sunday we are planning our Annual Cider Making day and John has decided he would like to try and make perry as well; so this morning we headed off to a neighbour’s farm where there are several old perry trees. Unfortunately since John had spotted the pears and gained permission to pick them most had dropped and been eaten by the sheep – lucky them – not so lucky for us! However we did find 1/2 a bag of small yellow pears and 1 bag of hard green fruit – this tree was absolutely dripping with fruit – so we shall see how much juice we can extract next week.
