Pear Picking

Local pears are not quite ready, but my daughter and I had the opportunity to pick pears in Medford last Saturday as part of a church service project. The temperature reached 106 that day, but luckily our shift started at 6:00 am (yawn!), so we were finished before the heat became unbearable.

The fruits of our labor. One of many bins we helped fill. The pears were shipped to a church cannery for processing and will soon be available to families in need around the world.
