Strawberry season a success

By Heather Sawaski

MERRILL (WAOW) -- After an early start, a sweet summer season is coming to an end. That of course being strawberry season.

M & M Berries in Merrill is winding down the year. Warm weather and rain helped open the farm about a week early. Then over the past few weeks, the rain just kept coming. But workers say it wasn't enough to wash out a great season.

"The weather has affected it somewhat, but it has been a very good year," said Judy Kimmons. "And we've had a lot of compliments on the berries so that makes it nice."

Other area farms have already closed up shop for the season. Kimmons says M & M Berries will mostly stop picking in the next couple of days.
