Your orchard must be ready for picking? What are you harvesting?? Are you dehydrating stuff?
The apples, peaches, apricots, pears and figs have already come and gone. What I didn't get, the birds, squirrels, coons, wasps and possums got. I'm still waiting for the first frost so that I can get my persimmons. I have about twelve trees just loaded down with them. I'll have to be quick, the crows are waiting too. I'll have to wait till the trees grow some more to dehydrate the excess. Right now I have to fight off kids and animals to get what i want.
The biggest harvest i had this year was pear. They were very sweet but hard as a brick.

Hard-as-a-brick, green bartlette pears are one of my MOST favorite things in the whole world. I would probably put them on top, actually. With young coconuts and mangoes and ice cold watermelon right behind. Definitely, a trip to Kirk's next year! I'll work for pears!

Poor Kirk - you'll be sorry you told us! :D

Too bad you live so far away or I'd be over to raid your fruit trees..... :D

Okay everyone party at Kirk's place next year in the fruit orchard! :D

I think that's a great idea!!! We could pick a day late next summer/early fall and all of us could pitch in to "help" Kirk gather his harvest :D !!!
Whatcha think, Kirk?????
I can just see it now! A bunch of tents pitched around my pond, a big campfire in the late evening. Everyone with bellies full of fruit, listening to the bullfrogs, treefrogs and rain peepers. Watching the barn swallows dive bombing the pond surface. And a crowd of nosey neighbors wondering what in the worlds going on at that crazy old man's house. :D

Love to all,
I just saw this site on drying persimmons and thought of you:
Ever try that?
Thank you. I'll try this out.
