Spooner Strawberries - NOW It's Feelin' Like Summer!

Although this morning was a bit cloudy and drizzly in Olympia, a stop at Spooner Strawberry Farm on Yelm Highway has me believing that summer isn't just a hopeless dream.  Strawberries are ripe, direct from the field - and so, so yummy!

 

Strawberries

I bought a half flat today so there would be some to share at the office and plenty to gorge on at home.  I've learned in the past that buying one or two pints only means I will be making an immediate repeat stop because I will have devoured them before getting home.  And I will still be planning on a full flat soon for making freezer jam!

Right now, the berries are only available at the farm on Yelm Hwy, but very soon the other stands around town will open also, along with their booth at Farmer's Market. 

So who cares if the sun is out or not (OK fine I do care a little...) - I got a big taste of summer this morning with delicious, sweet strawberries from Spooner Farms!
