Farmer's Markets Prepare for Upcoming Crops
JEFFERSON CITY - Farmers participating in the Cole County Farmer's Market say better weather conditions will help their upcoming crops.
James Hohman founded the Cole County Farmer's Market in the early 1990s, and is president of the market. He says the recent good weather will help some crops.
"Getting them planted was the hard part, with the soil conditions being so dry like they were. It was hard to get stuff planted at that time. Those that were able to get stuff planted with the rains that we've had, should do alright," said Hohman.
Right now, popular crops are different types of peppers, onions and eggplant. Hohman says the next crops will be lettuce, radishes, spinach and other crops typically seen in the spring.
