Video: Hot day at the Research Farm

This week's crop walk was a hot one. On Tuesday and Wednesday, it hit the mid-90s here in central Maine -- a little warm for these parts. In this video, you'll get glimpses at several trials -- broccoli, marigolds, chicory and corn (it's more than knee-high by the 4th of July).

We also have an action clip of a couple our farm workers laying down straw mulch over the pumpkin trial field -- a hot and dusty task on this day. We finish up with some tomato pruning. Apologies for the lack of audio. Our microphone imploded during shooting.
