We are done picking blackberries, but we still have Pick-your-own raspberries available. The picking should improve now that the weather is cooling down. With harvest winding down and fall coming, we change our routine with the season. I now have time to be doing some fall chores and Edie is back to teaching at Grove elementary. I plowed and disked the area for the new plum, pluot, and aprium planting that will be going in this fall and next spring. We are trying to root some softwood cuttings of our hardy kiwis and I am budding some limbs on some of the peach trees to change them over to another variety. We are also planning to build a "Berry Barn" in the next year and so we are working on the planning of what we want, where, how big we need the barn to be etc,etc, Sometimes it can be a little daunting. Fortunately, we have friends and family who are available to give helpful advice and an outside perspective. For all of you who came by and purchased berries from us this year, Thank You. Getting to see old friends again and meeting new ones is a highlight of our summer. Enjoy the gift of this beautiful late summer weather.
