I pruned the wild shoots and sprouts on my espaliered pear tree the other morning. I do this routine several times during the season to keep it neat and tidy. Love those adorable baby pears from the pollinated blossoms of about a month ago. Saddest story ever though, were all the baby pears that I accidentally knocked off! That's about a dozen pears that won't get plump throughout the season.
