Daily Tip #3 When to pick berries
If you like sweet, perfumed, intensely flavored berries, as I certainly do, pick them at the end of a hot, sunny day. Do not pick them in the rain. Do not pick them in the morning. Moisture washes away flavor and plants take sugars from their fruit during the night, only to replace them over the course of long, hot days. This applies, as every vinter knows, to grapes as well, which is why wine grapes are never harvested during periods of rain but rather in the evening after a sunny day. This applies, actually, to pretty much all fruit. So, if you come across a nice berry patch during a drizzle or a morning run, leave it be, or you will be disappointed with what you pick. Come back when the time is right.
