We were forecast to get down to 25 this morning, so I was pretty much resigned to that we’d prob lose most if not all our peach blooms. Well, when I went to bed at about 2am, it was still 30, so I thought we might luck out.
But when I got up at 9, I checked our temp gauge it was about 28, and then checked the low temp, and it got down to 24.8 here on the hill. So, they nailed the forecast. The two peaches that were blooming were further up the hill, so it may not have been that cold, but still low.
After we got home from church, I went out to check the blooms, and while they don’t look black now, the petals are a bit droopy, but they looked like that yesterday. 25 is the plus 50% loss stage, but we’ll see what they look like in a few days.
Now at 2pm, it’s almost 50 and sunny, and we’ll have some temps down near 30 this week, but better yet, no real rain threat until next weekend. So, I’ll be able to get my raspberry run done in a few days, and plant them later in the week.
