The freeze of April 6th was detrimental to the peach crop.  We are waiting for the fruit to grow some, so we can get a more accurate estimate of the damage.  Some varieties were lost completely and most have received some degree of damage.  There are areas in the orchard where a good crop remains, but my estimate at this time would predict 30-40 percent of a crop.  The apples survived better with probably at least 80 percent of a crop.  I will report a more accurate evaluation later.



The peach crop was damaged by temps in the 27 degree range this morning.  The forecast is for another freeze on the 10th.  I will update the situation after the next freeze event.
