      Weather impacting asparagus in Yakima Valley

      YAKIMA, Wash. -- Rain is having an impact on the cherry crop this year. But, it seems our asparagus is suffering too.

      Farmers across the Valley say their crop is loads smaller this year. Too much water in the soil is the problem. Cooler temperatures are also effecting the crop.

      "100 degrees is good," said farmer Isela Bautista. "You can do two cuts a day. Some things are going to be late, most of the produce."

      Bautista also says leafy green vegetables like lettuce and mustard greens are having a good season so far. The wet weather has little impact on them.
