no raspberries this week

I’m sorry to report that our raspberry field is currently overwhelmed with mold. The berries were looking good yesterday, but another day of unseasonably hot weather took its toll. Due to a simultaneous lull in garden output, we do not have any other produce to take the berries’ place in your boxes.

We had expected to send another 3/4 to 1 pint per share this week. But my effort to fill even a 9 pint order this morning proved impossible as 3 out of every 4 ripe berries had noticable mold. We will have to abandon them for now. There is reason to suspect that the cooler temperatures later this week will prove inhospitable to mold while ripening enough new berries for a half pint per share next week.
