We've had a few days in the mid 80's. Can you believe it?
Too much too soon. The warm weather is forcing the peach tree to bloom. Most of the buds are still pretty wrapped up but I noticed a couple popped on the end of one branch.
Did you hear my cry across the country?
It's WAY too early for this.
Fortunately, the temps are notching it back down to normal for this time of year. It should be in the 50-60's right now and that's where we'll stay through the end of the month.
With a little luck, this refrigeration might keep the peach from blooming all the way.
We've gotten skunked the past few years with frosts killing the blooms so I'm not hopeful.
The apples on the other hand seem to have more sense. They are bare as a bone right now...not a bud or blossom in sight.
Who knew trying to get some fruit off these trees was so tricky?
Makes me wonder what the local orchards do to keep things in check.
