The last three weeks have been warm and then cold, rain, ice, sleet, snow, we’ve had it all.
Our cherry trees were in full bloom and BAM and now they’re brown and all the blooms have fell off.
Our peach trees had started blooming and BAM, the blooms are falling off.
Heavy bloom on the plum trees looks now like they’ve been burnt.
The apple trees are budding and the quince tree is budding. The rhubarb leaves are curled up and the asparagus stems are mushy.
We’ve had a lot of very warm days and then the temps drop in the 20’s*. Mother Nature just isn’t being very nice in this spring of 2018.
Apple bloom full
Pawpaw trees blooming
Leaves coming out on the pecan trees
Everything was either coming out with bloom or full of bloom and we had two nights of frost around the 15th of May. The English walnut and pecan were burnt bad. Some of the apples, peach, cherries and pears were blooming really full and got the frost but we may still have a little fruit. Last night we had frost but not heavy and it didn’t hurt the tomatoes but hubby expects it again tonight.
