Too early to be this warm in NGA
« on: February 13, 2018, 03:54:46 PM »
Except for the grapes & pears, all my fruit trees and bushes are budding out. . .Before I even got a chance to prune them!  Guess I'll to drop everything else I'm doing and get that done asap.

Our last average frost is in April.  Gonna be a bad year for fruit if we get another freeze in the next two months.

February is our coldest month, so you know we're going to get more freezing weather before spring. Prep for it.

I am told that with the current solar minimums to be on the lookout for alternating warm/cold spells that could be severe enough to play havoc on crops.  That said I have not been able to plant second row of English peas or plant potatoes due to the constant rain.
