It's pear picking season in Southern Oregon. Our church owns a huge pear farm and there are two million pounds of pears that need to be harvested this fall. Church members have been asked to donate twelve hours of labor to the cause. In my opinion, it is a privilege to fulfill that request...I love pear picking! Last Monday night they allowed children in the orchard because they weren't running any tractors. It was so much fun to be at the farm as a family. The kids loved it. The orchard is so gorgeous as the sun goes down - always a treat to be there.
