No perceptible change in conditions

Not much change. Still slow because of the overripe berries. We might not escape this dilemma the rest of this season. We do not know why we have these seemingly fast overripening conditions (blueberries should persist for almost a week after turning ripe but this year our crop seems to have missed that memo). Finding and picking berries that have just turned ripe is the best strategy and requires one to hunt for bushes with ripe and unripe berries. We will remain open as long as we can. No telling when those last rows will ripen and we hope they ripen better. We will post the conditions as they arise.
