A good crop of garden vegetables is in the root cellar at Crammond. Carrots, potatoes and beets had no problems filling out during the cold wet summer of 2010. Hay crops in the area did well with the main challenge being sufficient drying time between rain showers. Most farmers probably don't want to talk about their canola crops. Grain crops, on the other hand, have been put into the bin lately, during a spell of warm and sunny weather before Thanksgiving. And some grainfields were turned into greenfeed as well. However, in spite of all the precipitation over the summer, the subsoil is surprisingly dry in the area.
