I may yet eat that Hat!!!

Went for a look around the garden this evening - that's all I had time for - Anyway, just looking and enjoying is as important - in my books anyway - as doing. Back to the point - My Pear tree is looking good - Leaves haven't curled and fruit buds seem to be forming - probably should not have said anything- will most likely give up the ghost and die now - but since I planted it, I have never been this far along - So fingers crossed -

Apple and Plums do so well - cant figure this Pear at all

Will keep you updated

More luck than good judgment!!! Just put it in the ground and off it went. Never did anything to it. Put it up against a sunny wall and off it went. Would love to tell you it is because I am such a good gardener but hey if it works - thats fine by me
