Fast forward to this year...two large tubs of pears that the Unconventionals helped us (Pop and Grammy) pick during a recent stay.
I put out the "call" (okay, text) asking the four sisters for help putting up the pears and we scheduled it for ASAP (Avoid Spoiling Any Pears). Somehow I didn't get pictures of Farm Chick at Heart and Little Ruthie who helped out a LOT! (Sorry Farm Chick.)
While the Unconventionals were still at Four Sisters Farm, I made a fresh pear cake that was a big hit. It was delicious and they loved it. It smelled SO good baking that we could hardly wait for it to come out of the oven...then when I poured the glaze (nearly pure sugar) on, we nearly lost our good minds!
The Superheroes helped sort out the pears and put them into the sink for a washing. We put the recently renovated kitchen to the test with the canning process!
Even the babies "helped" with the pears...so they will get to eat some pear sauce!!
I can't believe I didn't get pictures of Ruthie sitting in the bouncy seat overseeing a large part of the process!
Sorry, Ruthie! I didn't get your mommy either!
The product of our labor...it won't last us a year but it will be tasty!
