The sacrificial pears

Sacrificial pears
1 month ago, 2 weeks ago, 3 days ago

I dread having to thin fruit but this year the nashi decided to take a break from last year's abundance of blossoms and produced only one cluster of flowers. That cluster turned out 5 perfectly shaped pears and from past experience we knew that either a few go, or we end up with puny fruit or nothing at all.

Well, the nashi must've done a happy dance every time we cut one off. From left to right: a month ago, 2 weeks ago, and 3 days ago. I just checked the tree and the remaining 2 are TWICE the size of the third one.


  1. hope the ones left on the tree will get bigger.

    1. I checked them again...boy did they grow even more!
