Strawberries - nearing end of crop.
Raspberries - affected by the rain and
heat, still medium crop.
Blackberries - will be ready in 1-2 weeks,
several weeks ahead of normal ripening.
Spotted wing drosophila - kind of low numbers
due to the wet or hot weather, so far.
Apples and pears sizing nicely - big fire blight
 problem around Medford.  No fire blight
findings in Lane County, yet.
The hot weather MAY cause sun burn on
apples, pears and berries if not protected.
Protect newly planted trees with white latex
paint mixed one to one with water, especially
the S-SW side of the bark on new trees.
Typical first filbert moth spray goes on
this next week.  Moth numbers seem low so far.
