The article reports presents information on weather dominated vegetable seasons. The 2004 vegetable season is one that will be long remembered by Georgia growers, but one they would just as soon forget. The spring season produced a myriad of conditions ranging from dry to wet and cold to hot. While the early spring was dry frequent rains in June jeopardized the crops during the critical harvest periods. Crops that mature too early will overlap with the Florida market and crops that mature later will overlap with the North and South Carolina's market windows.
