From Matt Batcheldor in The Olympian:

“The strawberries are back.

And as local berry purveyors tell it, this years crop is the best in years.”

“Sue Spooner, co-owner of Spooner Berry Farms said shes looking at probably the best crop of strawberries since 2007. Her crop also went on sale last week.”
[In Yelm behind the former Blockbuster Video store.]

“Her berries are on sale at all the usual outlets, from Centralia to South Seattle, except for the u-pick operation at the farm at 3327 Yelm Highway SE. That starts Tuesday [June 18].
