This is what happens when it’s too warm in February. We have highs this week of 78 and 80 degrees. The trees thing springtime has arrived.
That’s a plum tree loaded with blooms. The sun was going down and the woods behind me were blocking most of the light so I couldn’t get a good picture but it’s loaded with blooms.
This is a pear. And look at that glorious blue sky! This is the most blooms I’ve ever seen on a pear. We have yet to produce more than 1 pear per year and we must have 9 pear trees.
All the peaches are in full bloom. This is a young one we just planted in January.
The apple tree will be blooming by the weekend. The pluot is in full bloom and this is our low for one night next week!
Frustrating and disappointing but Mother Nature is in charge and there’s nothing we can do. Our water lines will have to be drained before the temps drop below freezing and the well in the orchard is solar powered so once the sun goes down, there’s no water out there anyway. Otherwise, we could spray them and hope to save the blooms.
