More chilly weather, temps dropping into
the 40's, also more of the wet stuff.

Get the grapes off ASAP.  The more wet,
the riper the grapes get.... the greater chance
of the grapes splitting.  Plus the more rain,
the rain will cause the grapes to have less
sugar and acid - due to dilution by the rain.

Apples and pears - OK in the rain.

Hazelnuts - the soil will become more wet
and start to be picked up in the harvester..
it is called mudding the nuts.
