Where do you pick stuff WA?

Ok Western Washington hounds and fellow foragers - it's June in a couple of days, with the entire wonderful summer fruit and veggie season before us. Where do you go to pick stuff? I'd really like your personal recommendations. I know there is a "U-Pick" website, but I've found it extremely un-user friendly, not to mention there is no feedback on the quality of the experience from trusted sources, really not from any sources.

So please share your experiences! It's one of my summer joys.

Towards the end of the season last summer, we had a great time picking at South 47 Farms, which is out in Snohomish. They had large numbers of tomatoes, cukes, and also a patch of small, overgrown mix of carrots, radishes, beets. If you can tell what's below from the greens, you can get exactly what you want. We couldn't, really, so it was happy surprises pulling stuff out of the ground. Oh, and they've got a number of bean patches for picking, and apple trees that weren't ready when we got there. And herbs I think. Lots of stuff. And of course, a little stand, for those who don't want to get dirt under their nails.
