  • Sweet corn planting is wrapping up this week and into early next week  – recent heat has helped the crop continue to emerge
  • The green bean crop is now 66% planted – every region will continue planting this week
  • Red beet packing will begin in mid-July throughout the Midwest
  • The California cherry harvest ended with a lower yield than normal years but enough to secure the needed pounds
