Darn . . I walked past the peach trees and their budding. Mid-December! No! Don’t do that!
It’s so hard growing fruit trees here . . winters aren’t harsh enough to get some things to grow, too harsh for other things to grow, and too finicky for most things. We had nights in the 20’s and days in the low 30’s and then we have nights in the 60’s and days in the 80’s . . all in December!
It’s better that they bud out now and get frozen back than if they were blooming in March and get frozen back but still, they should be dormant now . . storing up energy for producing peaches.
Mother Nature is going to do what she wants to do . . with no regard to what I want.
