properly because we’ve had notenough sun and too much water.“Because of how much rainwe’ve had, the ground is saturat-ed.“Plants are sitting in water,and when that happens, they willeventually die,” Gsell said.The saturation of the fieldspresents another problem forfarms like Russo’s – the ability toplant at all.“We went almost three weekswithout being able to plant corn.With a gap like that, we will be af-fected in the coming months inhow much there will be availableto harvest,” Gsell said.The concern raised by mostfarmers was not having the vol-ume of produce that customersare used to. Many voiced thatlater in the season, when patronsare looking to buy corn or otherseasonal produce, they’ve forgot-ten how rainy June and earlyJuly were because it doesn’t affectthem as it does a farm. The im-pact is felt for the rest of the yearby the rain the region has gottenthis summer.Last week’s hot and dry weath-er, with temperatures in the midto upper 90s, was just what thedoctor ordered for farms still cul-tivating soggy soil.
