Current Crop Update
Cold Weather Status
We were starting to see some very minor bud activity with the warm temps preceding this winter blast. Fortunately, the cold was preceded by significant moisture which hydrated the trees and then created an insulating ice layer throughout the tree canopies.
This combination is very encouraging, particularly with the extreme cold the last 36 hours. If this would have been a dry weather system, we could have received significant damage to both the fruit buds and the trees. Instead, the trees appear healthy and the buds are receiving very efficient final winter chill which should result in a strong bud setting.
There are other benefits from the snow, ice, and temperatures related to nitrogen and mineral levels and uptake, soil moisture, insect and weed development, and more.
For all of us, this is an unusual event and we won't know the true effects on the peach crop for a while. So far, so good it seems!

While we have kept in touch with our customers via phone, email, and Facebook for years now, we have recently started our Instagram journey. We felt it was important to provide our customers with photo updates about the season, and it has shown great success! Follow us using the link below.
