Slim Pickens In The Garden

Fall is the winding down season. Cooler weather means anything left in the garden and orchard slow and decay. The copious amounts of rain have helped with the melting process.

Picking an apple or pear off the tree before heading out to do chores has become a habit.A single asian pear of the season still on the tree.

Today I picked the last Asian pear off the young tree. This is only the second year of producing for this newly acquired variety and I was very pleased with the crisp, sweet taste of this planting as well as the quantity.

Only 3 Golden Delicious apples remain on the tree.The Golden Delicious apple tree is not far behind and I will be picking the last of those sometime later this week.

It has been a good year for tree fruits this year as well as the filberts. I have a freezer full of dried nuts, apple and pear bread, along with apple and pear chunks (for making pies).

The dehydrator had been busy most of the summer.
