Wednesday June 28th – Picking Good! Open until 5pm

Lot and Lots of ripe berries that need to be picked. Not many pickers out here today. Perfect weather. Easy to fill a bucket!

Picking Report Tuesday, June 27, 6:30 pm

Well, we had a pretty good day of picking. There are still many ripe berries but one must work harder to obtain a bucket of ripe berries.
We will open at 8 am tomorrow (Wed.).
Note:  We will close if there is persistent rain…

Picking Report Tuesday Morning 7 am. Open 8 am – 5 pm

There are still many ripe berries in Zone 5 but they are not going to be in clumps. They will be scattered. So the ease of picking is more difficult. Use the advantage of 2 hands by utilizing a “picking belt” (see previous video post on Facebook).  
Zones 6 and 7 still have quite a few ripe berries but will need to walk up and down the rows to find the bushes with the ripe berries.
Note: When the ripe berries can’t keep up with the bird pressure the season will be over.

Picking Report June 26th 8:30 pm – Open tomorrow (Tuesday) 8 am

8 am
We had a slow but steady day. I think we sold about 300 lbs.
There are still many ripe berries out there. Also, many to turn. Hopefully the speed of ripening will stay ahead of the bird’s appetite.
Still lots of ripe berries on zone 5 but they are spread out more on the bushes.
Still plenty of berries on zones 6-7
Looks like another beautiful day.

Picking Prediction for Saturday June 24th – Many Nice Ripe Berries

We will be open for picking tomorrow (Saturday) at 8 am.  Not sure when we will close but it looks like we will be open for a good portion of the day.  There are still many ripe berries in zones 5-7.

I would suggest using one of our “picking belts” (if you don’t already have a belt) to strap the bucket to your waist.  You can then pick with both hands and double the amount of berries you pick in a given time.

In zone 5 there are many ripe berries but they are not all clumped together so having both hands free to pick can really speed things up.

Picking Hours for Friday June 23rd 8 am – 12 Noon

We will be open from 8am – 12 noon today.  This will allow a half day of ripening to assure berries for those who were not able to come during the week to have berries on Saturday. Please “share”.
