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.
