each winter we anxiously watch the temperatures
during the freezing winter during february and
since this is the time that the blooms on our fruit trees
will pop out
if we have that sudden drop in temperatures down in
the 20s
it can ruin a whole winters production by the tree to
produce fruit

in the last week the temperature dropped one night
down to 19 degrees here
i knew since ive been watching all our fruit that they
were all waiting to just pop out with their blooms

on an earlier blog
i posted the picture of our early peach tree
the one that produces the best ever sink peaches
that we had covered with row cover
had placed a heat lamp inside
i looked closely at the blooms yesterday
i dont know
time will tell if all our efforts

my wife she called me
look how beautiful this looks
there is one of our 3 plum trees that suddenly
popped open their blooms
to reveal this pure white flowering that just
pops out of the landscape

we should have a good crop of plums if these hold up
it sure will keep the bees busy the next few days

i looked closely at all my peach trees
the blooms are just now starting to pop out on them
they are a few days away from
popping out their pink blossoms in a show
the plums are doing now

a good fruit harvest is visualized for the country n this year

i was out in my pastures walking the path we keep mowed
it winds around all our acreage for a mile

there are hundreds and hundreds of these bluebonnets everywhere
they are thicker than they have been in several years
i predict
