GUTHRIE, Okla. -- A storm moved through Logan County Tuesday  dumping some much needed rain.

"There is nothing like a real fresh rain," said Gil Fleshman, Guthrie farmer.

Fleshman and his family run Grace Family Farm.

It is a small 2 acre chemical free farm. The family makes money selling vegetables to weekly customers and to customers at the Edmond Farmers’ Market.

The hot and dry summer has taken a toll on their crops.

“Whenever you hit 110 or more degrees for an extended period of time the garden pretty much shuts down and the plants that are healthy just go into survival mode," said Fleshman.

To get through the summer months Fleshman uses an irrigation system. The farm grows green beans, carrots, and many other vegetables.
