The last pear of 2009

Just eaten the last pear in store, a Winter Nellis. Very soft, sweet, juicy and fragrant. No more home-grown pears now until August.

Any plans to do any work have been put back by the snow. I forgot to grease any of the trees, because I was too ill and distracted before Christmas. I was planning to spray with a winter wash as part of the war against pests, but it will be a while before the ground condition will allow now, even when the snow eventually disappears.
