Closed Thursday for laundry. And because the field was well-picked by expert pickers today. The raspberries need at least a day, if not two, to ripen. I will update tomorrow whether we will open Friday. Stay tuned.
Yes, I'll be spending the day getting berry stains out of shirts. You'd think I'd know how by now. Hopefully I'll also be responding to the kiddos with something other than "not now".
Our keenest blueberry gal went out first thing yesterday to continue her search for a ripe blueberry. She returned to the house victorious with the tale of her berry breakfast. This sent the boy contingent flying out to the blueberries. They returned to confirm her findings. They are turning blue! (Very exciting for us as we finished our last bag of frozen blueberries at least a week ago (!) I can only make a guess as to when we open for blueberry picking. Possibly next week? If you were at the the farm the last couple of days you will have certainly had Patti tell you that the blueberries are ripe and that "there at least four ripe berries on each bush". That makes for 2200 ripe berries already! It's just a matter of sun.
It's turning out to be a great berry year and we look forward to more berries and more of you all.
