“It’s been a rough spring,” he said. “There has been a lot of late frost. We actually wait a little longer since we’re north of some other growing areas here. There are a lot of strawberries and tomatoes. It’s a tough deal.”

Otter said weather problems in the U.S. may lead to more sales this year.

“With all the flooding in Ohio and Michigan and damages from all the rain in Indiana and Illinois and Wisconsin, they said they’ve had more 90-degree days than all of last year, and it’s been very dry,” said Otter, who grows cabbage on 700 acres and cauliflower on 100. “Georgia was late with crops. They all come out at once and will be gone at once.”
