We got down to probably 24 the other night I don’t know how my terrain matches the weather stations near me, though. The small airport not very far from my house said 28, so hopefully I’m more like it than those neighbors.
The blueberry flowers look very good (I can protect little Sunshine Blue all the way to the ground). Some peach flowers look bad and some surprisingly good (Redskin).
The J plums looked good and fresh afterwards, but 2 days later they look spent. But one tree’s blooms were looking old before the deep freeze, so I don’t know how much is due to the temperature and how much is just bloom stage.
If there’s a way of telling whether various blooms are definitely damaged, y’all let me know.
Oh, my hood pear’s flowers are still not opened! They’ve sat there nicely considering how early they formed and our temps. That’s a nice plus, even though it’s just a very few flowers, lol.
Tonight will be the last scary night, hopefully for the whole season! Last night was forecast at 28 and it fortunately was even warmer than that Here’s hoping the 28 they have for tonight will go the same way.
