Peaches were hurt significantly by yesterday morning’s freeze.  Temperatures ranged from 25 degrees on the hills to 19 degrees in the low spots.  The wind laid down around 3 a.m. which plummeted the temps.  We ran two wind machines from 3 till 8:00.  There seems to be a better crop around the wind machines.  Late blooming varieties also seem to have survived better.  Many varieties are wiped out.  It will take a week or two to get a good estimate, but I think a 40 percent crop might be optimistic.  I will give a report in a week on which varieties survived.
