The harsh reality of farming. We took cuttings from different peach orchards on the farm, put them in water and sunshine, and waited, hoping the buds would swell. Leaves are coming but fruit buds are not moving at all. A mild winter, yet one night of -12 degrees resulted in 100% kill of peach buds. Last time that happened was 22 years ago. 2016 farm income just got slashed by 30%. We hope the apples and grapes will fare better.
