3-19

Weather is the concern this week as cold temperatures are coming.  Forecast vary from lows of 26 to 29 and several mornings around freezing.  We have probably half our varieties in full bloom and the rest at least partially full.  Mid twenties will certainly cause extensive damage, but temperatures around 29 or 30 would probably not do much.  We have prepared our wind machines, but they are only effective in calm winds and a borderline freeze.

We have also been putting in permanent irrrigation lines on our newy planted trees.  These trees will have microsprinklers placed under each tree which hastens their growth in their early years and grows larger fruit when mature.

Hopefully my next post will be good news about the crop.  Tune in next week.
