It was a tough night in the garden on Saturday night. We had enough warm weather to bring out some beautiful blooms on the fruit trees. Unfortunately, those blooms froze with the lower freezing temperatures, hail and snow. No apricots this year.
The good news is that the fruit trees had a wonderful winter with all the extra moisture and are in good shape to grow strong and bloom again next year. We may still have some success with the plums and peaches. Mother nature has her ways. Stay tuned….
A big shout out to Odell, who with decades of orchard experience, helped me in early March with the pruning of all the fruit trees. This professional pruning will give the trees the best chance for being healthy and prosperous.
