PEPIN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The snow disappeared weeks ago, but the long and cold Wisconsin winter keeps coming back to haunt us.
Strawberry lovers are the latest to feel the pinch. WQOW-TV in Eau Claire says the picking season is over a week late on western Wisconsin fields.
Dan Sam of Pepin County figures to get a full and healthy strawberry patch sometime next week -- but only if the weather cooperates. That would put the start of berry picking more than two weeks late.
Sam estimates his picking season will run through about the middle of July.
