Any progress reports? 

The local rumor here in Seattle is that strawberries should start coming in this weekend (about 2 weeks later than normal).


Here is an Okanagan progress report.

They are starting to appear.  They estimate that they will peak around 2 weeks late (around the 23-25th of this month).

Any update on the cherries?

I'm seeing cherries labeled as "Northwest grown" (I assume from Oregon) and a few "Washington grown" in the stores now.  Today I called up Wings of Wenatchee, asking if they had the name of the orchard across the street.  The guy I spoke with said that in Wenatchee there were cherries in the store, but the local cherries were still not ready yet -- he said the cherries in the stores were from "someplace to the south."

So I'm wondering exactly where to go get cherries this weekend.  Yakima?  Hood River?  I'll probably pass on Cashmere (with 100 degree temperatures forecast, that 1800' long runway seems like a poor choice).  Anybody know?

Thanks!

When do you want to come over.  Sunday there is a farmers market downtown Yakima.

I am tied up until about 12:30 that day.
