Oh no! Flowers are blooming!
I'm loving the weather right now. So are the plants.
Volunteers are coming up, particular flowers are blooming.
I temporarily moved all the potted plants back outside in the fresh air.
Doors and windows are open and I haven't had to battle the wood stove in a week.
It's been 80 during the day (79 right now)
with lows of 70 and 60s at night.
If the pecan trees had leaves or if the Florida violets bloomed, I'd think it's spring.
But! Confusingly my apple tree thinks its spring too.
It's going to be 37 tonight ... And it's getting down to 26 degrees this Friday.
The fun is over.
I'm putting row covers on all the volunteers, making some a frames, hauling my plants back in and raking the straw back onto the strawberries.
What am I gonna do about my apple tree!?
Does anyone have an idea?
It's about four years old. about 9ft tall and covered in beautiful pink apple blossoms.
It literally made a bushel of apples last year.
This upcoming cold weather is knock it kuku!
Is there some secret I can utilize to protect it?
Will it even phase it?
If it freezes the blossoms, will that affect its apple production.
