Rain won't quit...worried about effects
So here we go again... May ended with 8.5 inches of rain and now the first few days of June have also been cold (upper 50s the last 2 days) and wet (over and inch of rain/rain ALL day yesterday/today)...nothing is drying out. My poor sweet cherries are loaded with fruit, but i'm scared everything is just going to rot. Same with the cots. Pluots too. I think the other stuff should be ok since it won't ripen until Christmas :) !
Anyone ever deal with constant rain for say 6 weeks and its effects? Since my trees have leafed out...we must be around 10 inches of precip and VERY few sunny days...i know Minneapolis had the third cloudiest May on record (i'm 2 hours SE)... So bascially rain/clouds 5 out of 7 days or so it would seem. Temps have been all over the place...very chilly the last 2 (we had a fire going at the cabin yesterday...inside the woodstove!)..
I've yet to see any curculio hits on my apples and they are nickel size now, yet they haven't been touched with a spray!
The forecast has rain chances 6 out of the next 7 days! One sunny day...God help us!
