I'm checking the pears daily, just in case birds decide they want them. I am looking forward to pear jelly, slices, and pear sauce this fall, I hope.
We're looking at getting some domesticated dewberry sets this fall or next spring. Have a nice place for them along the fence line. Those are my favorite berries, ripen sooner than blackberries and are much sweeter. It's a good thing we didn't move back onto ten acres, I would be down in my back from planting "stuff."
Go slow on the jam Snag keep that sugar high down.

Well , this isn't seedless , and the bushes aren't thornless ... and they do tend to spread if we don't stay on top of them . But IMO they're worth it . I don't know if they're native here or introduced , but they are all over , and this year they're all loaded with fruit . Berries are small , but lots of them make up for that .
