**Next Open Day Saturday, July 6, 2013 8:00 a.m.**

Our next day for U-Pick black raspberries will be this Saturday, July 6.  We will open at 8:00 a.m. and be open until we get picked out, which has been happening by early afternoon.  We encourage you to call before you come to listen to the message on our answering machine for the latest updates.  (740-536-7853) I will put a message on there as soon as we see that most of the berries have been picked.  Of course, even when we say there is low availability, you can come and look for the low berries and move the leaves (ouch!) to find the ones hiding in the center of the bushes. Some of the best  and biggest berries are there!   The rain and heat combination that we have had has made the berry crop look wonderful!  Looking ahead, we anticipate that we will still have berries to pick next week, but like we’ve said, call ahead to check.  We are finding that you black raspberry lovers are true outdoors people (you pick in any weather),  you are diehards (you pick 10-15 pounds at a time), and you have perseverance (you can still find the hidden berries in rows that have been picked through).  Thank you to our loyal customers and our new customers!  It’s so fun to see you and talk to you all at the farm!
