Pear Tree Leaped This Year - 2013

Back in June of 2010, our little pear tree snapped in half during a big storm.  Here's the sad photo of it being cracked off at about 4 feet tall.  I didn't have much hope for it to survive, but we left it in the ground.

By September of 2010, the tree showed some life and started to have shoots coming off the cracked trunk.  Photos of that growth here.

This year?  Well...it hasn't stopped and now is in the running for the tallest tree in our backyard.  Here is how it looked this morning.


And the pears?  They're starting to come in.


Come September, I'm thinking we'll have some fruit to pick.
