Farmers Say It's Too Early for Spring Crop Predictions

Updated:
Green Bay -

At Green Bay's indoor winter's farmers market, everyone is thinking spring.

"Yeah the snow really dropped," Keith Mueller, from Sweet Dirt Acres, tells a customer Saturday morning.

Farmers across Northeast Wisconsin say it's still too early to tell what effect this year's snow and frost will have on this spring's crop.

"If you could predict it, we wouldn't be farming," Mueller said laughing. "We'd be out there telling people how to do it."

Every weekend, thousand of people flock to inside the KI Convention Center in downtown Green Bay.

Farmers, selling vegetables from last year, look to the season head, to the snow, the frost and rain to come.

"One day it's 40, 50, it looks like it's gonna break, and then the next day you have below zero," David Horkman said with D&T Gardens.

Farmers at the market say right now they're several weeks behind.

"But it could change just like that," Mueller said. "We could get 50, 60, 70 degrees a month from now...it all depends on the moisture we get now."
