What climate/location challenges do you have to worry about?
I find it really interesting to know what kinds of things people who are growing fruit have to worry about in other parts of the country/world.
My worry list goes like this:
#1 worry is precipitation... not getting enough of it since my area is an arid one with an average of around 14 inches/year. Since I have to give supplemental water to nearly everything I grow anyway, no rain does not mean dead plants or no fruit, but everything certainly does so much better outside of drought conditions. Dry weather for long periods means more time, work, and money for watering.
#2 is gophers, or 'ground beavers' as I like to call them. They can do some serious damage to all plants, especially when small
#3 is late spring frosts, which come nearly every year and the success of a crop comes down to one or two degrees, a little wind, or some cloud cover.
#4 is hail, which happens every year, but is usually only pea-sized. Very locally real destruction can occur now and then, as happened to me this past summer.
