Is anyone else expecting fruit loss tonight with the freeze? Apples are just off peak bloom and won't be able to handle much frost. I tarped my 5 small trees hoping for the best.

The orchard around my house is expecting the whole years crop to be a loss if the forecast is correct. They called in a few helicopters to fly around the orchards along with the wind machines and smudge pots. If the blossoms can survive tonight they have one more potential freeze Monday night before the forecast is all clear.

Just got back in from covering everything in the garden. I already have peaches and cherry trees with fruit on them hope they will make it . I didnt have any tarps big enough to cover them.

Wild Juneberry at the ranch will take a hit I'm sure with snow last week and some frosty nights that are ahead of us. They are the first to blossom and usually hurts there production with them.

Nothing is blooming here yet but the buds are starting to swell.

We have a few thousand dollars worth of perrenials outside the greenhouse, scheduled for delivery next week. All MI native so they can take a frost...but this is going to be a test. Everything covered with remay and fingers crossed. Greenhouse is packed to the brim woodstove blazing.

Luckily we don't have much in the veggie garden yet except for peas and greens. Snow squalls blasting our fields right now.
