Extreme Weather Hurting Connecticut Farmers

Extreme weather so far this year has made it extremely hard on farmers in Connecticut.

At Killam & Bassett Farmstead in South Glastonbury, Kevin Bassett said he’s still recovering after three feet of snow from the February blizzard destroyed three greenhouses. To make matters worse, a wet Spring ruined about ten acres of corn.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t get better after a very hot summer has caused his tobacco plants to blossom early.

“We try to work with the weather, and the weather really hasn’t been working with us at all this year, at all,” Bassett complained.

The 86-acre farm is now working quickly to pick crops which are ripe for harvesting.

    I believe everything published was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your information is not good, however what if you added a post title
    that makes people desire more? I mean Extreme Weather Hurting Connecticut Farmers | FOX CT is kinda boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to get
    people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.
