An anolgy on bud hardiness
Thought you might like to toss this idea around.
As the cold temps. of winter progress, fruit buds are slowly being filled with antifreeze until the concentration reaches a maximum limit for the species. As the warm periods of Spring start to hit, the increasing temps. begin to drain the antifreeze out and the buds become more susceptible to cold temps.. So, what do you think of this unrefined notion, it is very simple in concept?
