"It affects us all. Everybody from the consumer, to the supplier, to the grower." Local growers like VegOut! Farms have lost so much of their crop in this week's freeze.

Farms is in Pattison, which is in Waller County, about 12 miles northwest of Katy. The family sells produce to H-E-B stores across the state, but it's been four days since the farm had power.
