Packing of the 1943 crop of peas at the Medford plant of the Oconomowoc Canning Company was completed yesterday.

The Medford plant might possibly be re-opened for the acres yet to ripen but Manager Emil Weix states that probably these last peas will be canned at the Stratford plant.

The ninety thousand cases packed here is considered a very fair showing considering the exceptionally heavy rainfall early in the season. A total of 18 inches of rain during the early growing season cause quite a few fields to be replanted and damage some other field. Some of the peas were not good enough for harvesting but most of the field harvested supplied about a normal crop.
