“There just won’t be enough ready until then,” he said.

Cabbage and cauliflower from Woodville, Ontario-based Woodville Farms should hit the market by July, said Paul Otter, president.

“The deal usually starts around June 20,” he said. “There’s going to be a bit of stuff in there at the beginning, but after that, I’d say it will be at least two or three weeks late.”

Woodville Farms grows cabbage and cauliflower.

In contrast, strawberries were on track for an early June harvest.

“Everything is looking pretty good where we’re located,” said Eric Chanyi, operations manager of Shabatura Produce, Windham Centre, Ontario. “Everything is on target. We grow a lot of strawberries, and everything is looking as nice as it has in the last five years.”
