A common site for passersby near the intersection of Lower
Sacramento Road and Vine Street is Lo Saetern's strawberry stand,
but by Tuesday he was giving up on continuing to harvest this
"The season is basically over," he said. "I've only been selling
a couple hours a day because this year has been really bad."
