    Want to know when freeze/frost late spring is??? Just look for your apples to bloom. Guarantee freeze. We had snow flurries and freeze advisory for 2 nights. Planted 4 more apples in the wind rain snow and cold today anyways jst so I’ll have more predictors. My Red delicious is in full bloom but luckily my favorite the yellow delicious just starting. Here is o e of my 3 yo full bloom. Last freeze here typically mid May.

    I was actually cussing you today, really just envious, as I dug 7 holes for 4 trees hitting rock a foot deep on 3 bad digs. Was dreaming of your 24 feet of soil !!!

    My sure fire method is when I’m really busy and I have to get the ground prepped/seeded within in a narrow window, I schedule time off....so we can then we get So much rain it’s impossible to work the ground.

    Kansas It's better to wear out than to rust out.
    It's pears for me. I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever get a pear crop due to early blooming/late freezes. My crabs and apples seem to have the timing pretty good.
