Oops! Where Are the Ripe Ones?!

As many of you already know, we made the difficult decision to close the Patch to let the berries ripen without visitors.  This is not a decision we make lightly and it is all 3 of us, Keith, Pam and myself, who pronounce the final verdict.  We do the best we can getting the word out when we decide to close.  The newspapers cannot react fast enough to our decisions so we opted to leave the ads running as the confusion of stopping them could lead to worse issues!  We have our large sign in the front by the road, the answering machine message (although I speak to as many people who call as I can), this website and our Facebook page.

The Night Before Opening

It was a very busy day today as it always is before we open!  Unfortunately, the weather report predicts that tomorrow will not be the best of days for picking.  For those of you who are new to our Patch, we do allow picking in the rain but in the event of a thunder and lightning storm it is everybody out of the field!

To our veteran pickers, you will notice some change "afoot", so to speak!  We have buried the main-line irrigation pipe so you will no longer have to step over 5" aluminum pipe to get to the little treasures.
