After a slow start, many veggies in KOTA Territory are ready to be picked. Vendors at the farmers market at Founders Park say a snowy April and cool nights this spring have put their crops behind. Finally, now, they're ready to eat!
For a few of the vendors, this week was their first time selling homegrown veggies at the farmers market this year. That's about two weeks later than normal. "We had a lot of cool nights in May and June and that's what really put the veggies behind," Vendor Zita Kwartek said.
While the growing season is later than normal, many of the vendors are thankful for the moisture this year and say the quantity this season will likely be better than last year because drought conditions aren't as severe.
