"[Wednesday] I'm guessing this field won't be a green field, it'll be a white field," he said on Tuesday.
To Grant, the snow is moisture and, therefore, welcome. What irks him is the cold weather that has preceded it.
"Soil temperatures at 2 inches are about 44 degrees which is pretty darn cold in the middle of May," he said.
Grant, who owns Grant Family Farms in Wellington, says this abnormally chilly spring has stunted the growth of his crops, but has not destroyed them.
"We predict our first harvest, which is in June, will be a couple weeks behind normal," he said.
Mike Hungenberg, owner of Hungenberg Produce in Greeley, echoed Grant's predictions.
"The cold is holding things back," he said. "But the snowpack in the mountains looks good."
That means there may be enough water this summer to wash away any chilly memories of spring.
"The rains we are getting are a blessing," Grant said. "Compared to the early 2000s, Colorado was in an epic drought, so this is a blessing to know we've got good moisture."
Where the cold may leave its mark is on Grant's plum trees. He says the low temperatures have kept the bees from flying and pollinating.
"Without bees we ain't going to have fruit," he said. "Maybe by this weekend it'll warm up and we'll see a few more bees."
