“The crops have gone into the ground very well compared to the last couple years,” she said. “The crops look excellent overall.”

She expected to start around July 10 with cabbage and around July 15 with beans, squash and cucumbers.

Onions and potatoes

Andrew Gurda, owner of A. Gurda Produce Co. Inc., Pine Island, N.Y., said “So far so good,” about this year’s onions.

“We’ve got a long way to go,” Gurda said, but he’s pleased with what he’s seen so far and expects a good harvest at the end of August.

The potatoes also looked good in early July, according to John Williams, partner at Williams Farms LLC, Marion, N.Y.
