A slow spring and critical temperatures
Last year my
three exclamation point spring post came on March 26 --- the plant world had
awakened, with peaches and dandelions in bloom and blackberry and pear
leaves unfurling. This year, we're at least a week behind...which
is a good thing.
In the spring, we
gardeners tend to get antsy and want everything to happen now, but a chilly winter slows
things down and may mean more food in the long run. Here's a table of critical
temperatures for most of the common fruits. Don't forget to keep
your eye on the weather forecast once your fruit trees begin to bloom!
