Water storage and Pears

Yes those are big water jugs 350 gal to be exact. We have been watching them on craigslist and hubby finally found a good deal on them and grabbed two of them.

One of them we are going to use for emergency water storage and the other I think hubby wants to do some kind of aquaponics set up.

The jars in the picture are our bounty from our trees this year. We got two baskets full of pears. They are not very sweet so hubby put a bit of sweetness in them but not a whole lot. It took a long time to ripen them.

Last year we only got one basket full from both small trees; hopefully next year we will get double the amount. Not much going on in the farm, trying to get ready for our vacation and take care of things for my dad before we leave. Chickens are still laying a lot even with this heat here in Texas. I am thinking it’s because I have them close to the orchard this year.

Well that’s about it for the update. Have a great upcoming Sept!

Oooh - I love pears! I have a persimmon tree - but would so much rather have a pear tree (or four)!
