Pear Picking Time
The first apples for this year's college juice were picked on the 9th October, see blog entry 'Apple Picking 2013', now it is time to pick the pears which have ripened over the last week. Ali and Kieron spent the day in the orchard picking three varieties of pears, Conference, Winter Nelis and Doyenne du Comice, filling 7 trays by lunch time. In the afternoon their attention returned to the apples filling another 6 trays, 13 trays in total, all destined for juicing at Waterperry Gardens.
