Rei's update - picking pears

This week Rei tells me about picking (Asian "nashi") pears with his mum...



I know all about picking pears, as I did this quite a bit in New Zealand way back in the day. I don't like picking pears (they are usually hard, and don't bruise as easily as apples)...because wasps love eating them. They get drunk on the sugar, and just hang out on the blind side of the fruit until you put a hand around them. Stung on/between the fingers? That hurts!

That is my story; think Rei's is a lot less dramatic!
