The last few weeks have been a challenge. Many of you may have either heard on the news or experienced yourself the wrath of the army worm (a cutworm variety). We have been battling them for a few weeks now and it looks like they have finally moved on. They didn't leave much vegetation behind. Our pastures fared okay but the garden took a beating. I've had to replant all my seedlings (broccoli, cabbage,cauliflower) except the collards...not sure why they left these mostly alone and alot of seeds. They decimated the Chard. Oh well, such as life. The birds are all well fed at least!!
Our pears are coming in and they are great. The tree is at least 20 years old and I do not remember the variety but they are the old timey harder baking pears. We eat them right off the tree (usually peeled) or make pear sauce with them...I'm sure they are good in any baking, but I don't bake much..
