MY POOR PEAR TREE

Posted Jan 22 2009 6:28pm


Can you see my lucky Irish charm in the upper left of the photo ?


My Asian pear has been the target of some nasty birds that have destroyed almost half the crop. I hung noise makers and chimes to alert my " bird dog " Cleo which didn't seem to work so then I strung netting around it and while it seems to save the lower pears I still see pecking marks on the upper ones.

The poor tree looks awful but I am bound and determined to have some pears for myself. My daughter suggested that I put out a bird feeder , but I'm against feeding the birds in summer because I want them to eat the harmful insects in my garden.

Anybody have some other suggestions ?
