A Raspberry Update


Photo taken by Friends in Photography

With the recent cold nights our raspberry’s have slowed down drastically in ripening.  If you’re looking to pick large quantities, I’m sorry to say it most likely won’t be happening in the near future.

Also – our high tunnel was supposed to extend the life of the raspberry season as well but from the looks of it – it hasn’t worked…  Again, we’ll know more in a few days.  The raspberries didn’t freeze but it seems as if they aren’t pollinating anymore.   This entire tunnel is a learning experience for not just us but researchers as well so as more berry season go by we’ll know more about what we should be doing.  Thanks for understanding!


Only time and the weather will tell what’s really going to happen but I just wanted to keep you all posted.
