YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) -- The cold, wet spring last year delayed the cherry harvest in Washington past the Fourth of July.

But a warmer spring this year has growers planning to have the harvest well under way by the end of June.

Washington State Fruit Commission Chairman B.J. Thurlby told KNDO (http://is.gd/Vea8op ) growers are hoping the nice weather holds. They expect to offer a steam of fresh cherries through the summer.
