Only one possible explanation.... Global Cooling!

The black spots on he bottom is called "bloom end rot". I forget what you use for it. The preventative solution is to till lye into the soil. You can buy a spray on treatment that will put an end to it, just can't think of the name right now.

Hey David-sorry to hear that your have had such an off year for harvesting the Oregon deliacies. The hops around Portland have been pretty good (from my perspective -the few neighbors and myself who grow hops). The Blackberries were a bit late-but they are done here. I guess the valley is the agricultural mecca for a reason- the hills are unpredictable. There is always next year!

Tim
