The year of the unexpected

Randy31513(Georgia 8b)April 13, 2012

I am seeing unusual pressure from things like ceder rust that I haven't had before because of the unusual weather. I am a bit worried about peach leaf curl since in South GA, it is usually not a problem because it gets so hot so quick.

I can't help but think we are all going to see bug and disease pressure we don't normally see because of the bizarre weather this year.

I agree. I am seeing more disease on my roses as well. We have been having many long windy days around here also. My young trees HATE it. Especially the plum.

If the ice age is coming it must not be too far away ;-)

I also was worried until a couple nights ago. Curculio had already attacked my bumper crop of peaches, and stinkbugs were much too common in the mulch. The freeze took care of all those worries though--the peaches, that is. I also no longer have to thin!!!
