and wet ground just makes it awful.
This is key! If you are starting with wet ground you had better be very sure there isn't more rain coming. Less of an issue with dry ground and earlier in the season. Sounds like you are dealing with cool weather too and probably short days. I would let it stand and be ready when the weather allows for harvesting.
