[NAFEX] Parting is such sweet sorrow

No gooseberries here that I know of. Relations from Nord Dakoda (Norskies, o' course) rave about 'em. I wouldn't know.
 
Washington state and the surrounding area has endured the wettest, coldest spring in living memory; several monthly records for precip. Crops are way behind. I called two orchards today hoping to pick cherries and they will open tomorrow for U-pick cherries - at least three weeks behind the norm. Looks bad for late ripening apples, unless we get a miracle fall to compensate...
