Ah, the wait is over. The shortage is past. Last week there were strawberries galore, multiple varieties at multiple vendors.
Skagit Sun Farm in LaConner, for example, featured both "Honey" and "Alpine" varieties. Once we got them home, we couldn't remember which was which, but both got eaten in a remarkably short amount of time.
I think I only got a handful of cherries, out of the couple pounds I bought, since my youngest is a voracious fruit-eater, both openly and on the sly.
