Delmarva Farmers Hope for a Better Season After Tough 2018

Posted: Updated:


BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - It's the start of a new season and that means farmers across Delmarva are already gearing up for new crops. But, the lingering effects of a wet winter has some of them worried.

"Last year was one of the worst years we've seen in a while," says Katey Evans, owner of Evans Farms in Bridgeville.

The wet winter has delayed some of their spring preparation, says Evans.

"Right now we're behind in all of our ground preparation. All of our field work, the groundwork, spreading the fertilizers all that good stuff... We really need the soil to warm up to work with us," she says.

In Milton, Rob Dick with Totem Farms says these past days of sunshine have him feeling positive about the upcoming season.

"I feel much better today than I did two weeks ago. I mean it didn't let up rain since September it seems like but, now it totally changed." he says.

Both Evans and Dick say they remain hopeful that mother nature will make things smoother this spring.
