Late Winter Weather May Not Spell Disaster For Local Farmers

Posted: Updated:

Salisbury, Md. - With snow covering Delmarva, almost a week after the start of spring and just a week before the beginning of April, some may worry the late winter weather could spell disaster for the growing season.

According to the owner of How Sweet It Is farmer's market in Eden Maryland, the March snow isn't necessarily a bad thing.  It just pushes things back a little.

"The cold weather is really just deferring things, which we'd rather see than had it got really warm early and then got cold, which would be more detrimental," says Brent Malone.

While this longer cold season might not be bad for crops already in the ground, Malone said it's been pretty wet, making it harder for farmers to plant spring crops.
