Two More Days

It looks like we are in for a weeks worth of heat starting Saturday. They say it should be 90 degrees by 11:00 in the morning. So, we are going to open at 6:00 AM Saturday if you want to come early. If you want to come before that, please call us Friday and set it up.

Nancy took this picture of a hummingbird drinking from a sprinkler today. You can hear different birds in the background. If you think it is peaceful and there are a lot of birds on normal days, try 6:00 on a Saturday morning.

Saturday will definitely be our last day, and this will be my last post for the season. I will start again next April, God willing.

We have appreciated your business and your conversations. Some of you have been picking since 2009.  Many of you have become our friends and we look forward to seeing you each year.

If you are looking for a good place to be on Sunday morning, try Hickman Community Church 854 I St, Hickman, CA 95323. There are a lot of young families and some old ones like us and Andy preaches the Word. For more information visit the website  The main service starts at 10:15 and if you are interested in maturing, try the Equipping Hour which starts at 9:00.

Thanks and God Bless You!


Trying to guess the end of the season

Hello everyone,

People keep asking me how long the season will go and I keep telling them “until we run out of berries”, which is true but not really helpful. Maybe 4 more days is better (I’m writing this Tue evening).

At this point we plan to stay open through Saturday 6/17. As you know, we are closed Sunday and it is supposed to be getting very hot Sunday and the entire next week so I expect Saturday is our last day. When it gets hot, not as many people come to pick and I don’t blame them. The heat also speeds up the ripening process so we will have more and more over-ripe berries.

I hope that helps you that are waiting until the last minute. Four more days!

For those that were signed up to receive this blog on their e-mail, I hope you were able to get out here toward the beginning of the season this year.

We would appreciate any comments on having the blog sent out by email. Is it useful or annoying or do you have suggestions to make it better?

I’ll post at least once more this season with a definite end-of-season date.

God Bless You All
