26.8 degrees at my house this morning
It's probably warmer in Wisconsin or New York! I'm not even in the mountains of North Carolina. It's probably warmer there, too! I picked ripe strawberries yesterday. Except for the blueberries, which are 95% done blooming, most everything else (pears, Asian pears, apples, pie cherries, Euro plums, pawpaws...) is at least a week or two past petal fall, if not over a month. Of course, a lot was already lost when we got right about this cold on April 12, like a beautiful then-hopeful crop of 'Guthrie' plums. Did I pick the worst location in the whole country to try to grow fruit?
