This week we are applying a bloom spray to the peaches.  Since we have been cool and wet for several weeks a bloom spray could be important to fight several diseases.  It is still hard to determine the extent of cold damage to the peach buds because they haven’t advanced much in the cool weather.  The forecast is for much warmer weather next week, so the peaches should grow more rapidly while the damaged buds fall off.  Apples are still two weeks from bloom, so they will not need a spray until then.  Check back next week for more farm news.
