According to my Oreogn spies, more
drizzly weather. Boooo.
Bad for the berry and cherry crops.
However, looking at the bright side, this will
slow down the Spotted Wing Drosophila, the
little fly that gets into all of the berry crops and
turns them to mushhhhhhh.

Blueberies are really ripening now and will be in
full picking very soon, depending on the farm location.
Always call the farm to see when the berries
or crops are ready.

Here in Tajikistan there are so many predatory
insects since they don't use a lot of insecticides
here.  In one orchard two people had big praying
mantis crawling on theire legs and shirts.  That
was really fun to see that high of praying
mantis populations.
