Nothing ripe at the moment, wait a week

We are going to stay open today (Sunday) as promised, but there really is nothing ripe to pick at the moment.  We have had too many people coming this week, despite the discouraging conditions since Wednesday, picking faster than the ripening is happening.

We are certainly closing Monday through Friday this week (Aug. 24-28) and will reopen for the weekend, Aug. 29-30.  Most likely we will close for Aug. 31 - Sept. 4 and then open for the rest of the season on the 5th of September.  This is the pattern we operated last year in an attempt to manage the protracted ripening.

The protracted ripening is likely the result of the cool June conditions during pollination, making pollination slow and protracted.
