Devastating floods wrought by Hurricane Irene a year ago inundated farm fields in New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont, wiping out a season's worth of work and setting up fears that the land would be unworkable this year. Since then, a warm spring followed by cold snaps then a blazing, dry summer have added to grower's woes.(AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
