Carrots, cabbage fight heat

The weather was keeping Greeley, Colo.-based Hungenberg Produce Co. on its toes, but so far, so good, said Jordan Hungenberg, salesman and food safety manager.

“(It’s) been a battle every day with all the problems we’ve had with extreme heat and water shortages,” he said. But “our crop is as strong as we’ve ever seen.”

“Carrots are all growing nicely,” Hungenberg said, and started July 16. “Our cabbage crop is also looking strong. We’ve worked diligently to keep everything wet.”
