Coasting for awhile
Post date: Aug 21, 2017 12:01:04 AM
Other than the rainy day this past Thursday, the daily harvest has been 600-700 lbs every day. At this pace, the rate of ripening is fast enough to handle the modest crowds we have experienced this year. Open every day, during daylight (and during an eclipse) for the foreseeable future. The picking is going to be good to very good. Typically you can expect to fill an ice cream pail in about an hour. You need to do some scouting and you might need to lift some branches and get into the bushes a little more than those who have picked thus far. Berry quality has been excellent so far, but as the season progresses, there will increasingly be some overripe berries.
