Vegetable growers in the Birmingham area were struggling to meet demand as three weeks of heat and drought hampered crop growth. “Size, color, quality - and we are starting to run out of stuff because of the heat and dry weather. We desperately need the rain,” stated a Cullman County farmer. The amount of vegetables for sale was down about 20 percent, due to the weather. WBRC-TV Fox 6 Birmingham (Ala.), June 5, 2019
