I took these three pictures this afternoon. Now I'm holding my breath (and praying selfishly). We are supposed to get a hard freeze tonight. If it gets low enough... well, this blog is supposed to be about the quality stuff.
Here's the sour cherry. I would be SO happy if we had a good cherry year. With only one tree, and hungry birds, even in a good year I get enough to make a pie. But I'd really like that. We haven't had any for a couple of years.
The pear trees are hard to defeat, but we had none at all last year. Now that I've worked hard to collect some recipes that use the usual bountiful crop, I am hoping to have some.
The crabapples might not be at quite so much risk. The blossoms aren't quite as far open. Now that I've discovered some of the great things to do with them, I'm looking forward to at least a few.
Tomorrow will tell. As for the selfish part, I'm also praying for the whole county, the whole state. After last year's devastation of all the fruit, a second year would be deadly for the economy.
