SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Monday night's temperatures got down right frosty, some temperatures even reached record lows. And one farmer says that's a little too cool, too quickly. "Every farmer knows we're at the mercy of mother nature," Farmer Leo J. Farnsworth told ABC on Monday.

The Farnsworth farm in Sandy temperatures reached 45 degrees and for a farm that grows a wide range of vegetables and fruit, some produce was harmed by the cold weather, "we'll be impacted economically by the melons, they're the most endanger and perhaps the tomatoes too, " Farnsworth continued. Turns out, cold weather harms the growth of produce and can even kill it. Farnsworth took ABC4 out into his fields where we were able to see vines wilted from the weather, "the melons were affected and may not grow and we may not get another batch of ripe tomatoes."
