Too Much Rain Fell

This past weekend, it started raining here in the northeast.  One band of showers after another kept rolling through, dumping record amounts of rain in many areas, causing major flooding.  At my farm in Bedford, we had three days of consistent rainfall.  Although the farm is very green and we had no flooding conditions, too much rain has a detrimental effect on certain crops, like tomatoes, which, unfortunately, were at their peak of the season.
