Well, we have reached the end of our fall berry season this year. This is a time of mixed emotions. I look gratefully look back at all the nice people we have been able to talk with on the farm this year. We have been in harvest for almost 3 months so I am also grateful for a break. It is also a time of letting go of this year and looking forward to next year. to preparing for winter and next year. Today I was working on the trellis on a new raspberry planting. We will need to blow out our irrigation system so it does not freeze, pick up the trellis from the fall berries, get the ground ready for the new planting next year, repair equipment that is broken, prune and get ready to put up our new berry barn. Right now we are applying for all the necessary permits. Because of the disastrous year with the blueberries we are removing that field and are going to plant raspberries there over the next several years. We plan to plant another blueberry field with a different variety that is harvested over a shorter time period, so that hopefully we can reduce our losses to birds. Well it is time for me to get going. I hope that each of you can enjoy the beautiful fall weather.
