This is one of the colder springs in recent memories.
And, while it's a change from last year when we were already getting a taste of summer, it can be tough on family farmers.
At Jeter Farm in Botetourt County the cooler days have put the family about two-weeks behind.
Usually at this point in the season, they would have already had these fields planted with produce like yellow squash, zucchini and corn.
The sooner things are planted, the sooner they go to market are be sold.
The familiy is hoping to plant soon.
"I hope it's here in a week or so, but just gotta play it by ear with the weather. Its rain real good yesterday and today, so it'll be the end of the week before we can get anything in I think," explains Darrell Jeter.
If you plant too early you run the risk of damage from frost or the seed can germinate too early and actually rot.
But, Jeter says the good news, is all this rain is a positive thing.
The ground retains the moisture and that's great for growing.
