The freezing temperatures of the 22nd were harsh, as we saw temperatures as low as 21 degrees.  It will be several days before we can be sure of the extent of the damage, but at this time we are finding enough live buds to have a good crop of peaches.  Each variety has lots of dead blooms but if 10% survive it will be enough for a normal crop.  We were fortunate that the crop was in early to mid bloom, because the buds are hardy then.  In another week any temperature below freezing could result in damage.  We have at least two more weeks to sweat it, so it is still wait and see.  Check back next week for an update.
