Temperature this morning was 6 degrees and there was three inches of new snow. Fortunately the apple trees are at “Silver Tip” – the buds are just beginning to crack open. At this bud stage there will be some cold damage, but most of the buds will survive.
Cherries are still a question mark both from last night and from the -23 degrees on Feb 14’th. We will just have to wait and see.
Most of our pruning is done – we need to do some grafting and get ready to plant 20 new cherry trees plus 500 new Nova raspberries.
Each new growing season is it’s own challenge.
