Picking is slow

Today's harvest was less than 100 lbs, which was less than yesterday's (130 lbs) and the days before (200-250 lbs/day). The weather was not great today, but could hear a family having a great time in the back when I got home this evening. We will remain open another week or so, but come with low expectations. If things improve (there are still berries to get ripe), I will report when they appear ready.

I would like to come for picking this Saturday. Will there still have berries?

There will certainly be berries. The question will remain how many will be ripe. If you are driving from outside the area and want to pick lots of berries, I would say do not bother coming. But if you are local, needing an ice-cream pail's work or less and you have time, then you should come. Sorry I cannot be more exact, but ripening is unpredictable.
