Recent freeze slows strawberry production

It might be a little tough to get chocolate-covered strawberries this Valentine's Day.

Growers say last month's freezing temperatures have slowed strawberry production. They says it's fairly normal for supply to be tight around this time, but a run of recent cold temperatures has slowed growth even further.

However, a possible warming ahead should help production increase in the coming weeks.
