Winter Weather 2010-2011
Wanted to start my own thread as I'll never find the one where everyone has posted when I want to look back on the weather history my plants encountered this winter. As always, my thoughts are out to all those in "zone denial" folks out there. May your plants come through this winter with as little damage as possible!
Last night my thermometers read 34 F. The local personal weather stations seemed to be 1-3 degrees warmer, which has been an ongoing issue with me based on readings last winter. I had light, scattered frost on the grass in lower areas of the yard. The roof, on the northern side of the house was covered with frost. Local personal stations indicate a 3 hour sub-40F period from basically 4:30-7:30 AM. I am concerned about mango blooms on Edward as they seem to be in that precarious netherland between blooming and setting fruit. No fruit set so far on anything but Rosigold. Initial bloom on Thai Everbearing set no fruit, but it was not a full blooming. There are now lots of new blooms spikes coming. Everything else mango-wise should be fine. I did bring indoors all seedlings from Puerto Rico which included Rambutan, Pulasan, Mangosteen, and Langsat. Jakfruit seedlings and everything else was left out to fend for themselves.
