Well, It looks like right now the young Robins are winning. We have hundreds of them this year. They are picking the ripe berries as they come on and we can’t accumulate enough berries. right now to open tomorrow. Hopefully, Tuesday we will have enough to open but stay tuned.
Sorry but due to 2 factors we will be closed tomorrow. 1. Pretty sure thing forcasted for storms with heavy rain after 7am tomorrow morninng.
2. We are pretty much picked out of ripe berries. A couple of days ripening will hopefully help a lot. Hopefully the ripening will out do the Robin’s appetite.
The forecasters are saying lots of rain the next couple of days which may affect whether we open tomorrow. So If you want berries, come today. It’s a beautiful day on the farm.
