Well the actual picking is finished. HORRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about a celebration, but they still have 20 acres to knock off the vines and pick up. They are going to use a new process( for us) for picking them up and cleaning them this year. So bear with me as I explain this process in layman's terms and for those of you who know this process by heart, please don't make fun of me if I say it wrong.
First I will tell you about how they knock them off. With fresh fruit berries, they use the picking machine to carefully pick the berry from the vine. With juice berries we used a tractor with a harrow on the front and on the back. Jess ran the tractor for this process.
