We are still not sure about this peach crop.  There are areas that were basically wiped out.  A damaged crop will always get worse because some of the peaches that look alive could still be mortally damaged.  My estimate would put this crop at around 30 percent of a full crop, however this estimate may change some in the next two weeks.  We are managing the orchard as usual, but have eliminated spraying in areas that are definitely wiped out.  Apples also had damage, but I don’t believe it will hurt the overall crop.  Check back later for more farm news.
