These hot temperatures are making a real difference in the ripening process, bringing both Spartan and Toro to their prime. There is still lots of nice fruit, and it is easy picking. I recommend coming as early in the day as possible. The berries are refreshed and firmed up over night. So come early before it gets too hot! 

We are definitely at mid season, so it's time to be sure you've filled the freezer for the winter. 

When there are large clumps of ripe berries, we recommend using a small container which will fit under the clump so the berries can be gently rolled off the stem into the container. Have your larger container available so you can transfer the berries from the smaller one as needed. 

This is a very efficient picking technique which will save you time and it's how professional harvesters can pick such large quantities, and works best when all or most berries on the cluster are ripe.
