Despite this summer’s weather, farmers are thriving

Evansville, Ind. (WFIE) – Although it may bring floods at the beginning of the season, it is better for farmers this summer to control the heat.

In the fields of farmers, you can already see signs of squash, orange, and fall pumpkins. This will come at the end of the summer, when the farmers are well cared for.

“Everything seems to be coming together this year,” says Paul Maissie, a Evansville farmer.

He also said that there is a central reason why.

“Well, you have to go back to Mother Nature,” he said.

This summer, all the storms and the sun hit the right time, creating the right conditions for many crops.

“Sweet corn has a high yield. I think we have found it over the years and all our crops have been good. ” We started with strawberries and tomatoes and had a good crop of everything.

Excessive rain in early summer and even extreme heat in late summer were not enough to destroy the plants in the fields.

“This year was really good, because even though it rained and it rained here a little bit, it was really hot, it really helped everything grow,” said Rachel Maisse, manager of Mais Farm Market Operations. “Our sunflowers were beautiful. We had an amazing supply of sweet corn. Overall, this was a great year for our crops. ”

For the Macy’s family, that translates into success in the Message farming market, where they grow or bake most of what they sell. Now, you turn to fall vegetables and decorations.

They are also preparing for “family recreation on the farm” by completing the playground, cornfield, and more.

If you want a note of your time on the market, drop-down backgrounds are available for you to pick up.

They say they are grateful for how they grew up this year, and look forward to next year.

“Just count the blessings we had a good year, and you know, that’s the main thing.” We hope it will be better next year, that kind of farmer motto – it will be better next year.

The “Family Farm on the Farm” event begins Saturday, September 25, and ends in Halloween.
