 Weeds are controlled in the tree rows, and we are now killing the weeds in the middles to enhance frost protection.  Note also that we have been irrigating.  It has been very dry for a long time.

Bloom is going to happen a little later than average this year. We are not really even into pink bud yet.  I am hoping that bloom continues to develop slowly because the weather predictions for the coming week are for very cold nights. The buds are quite frost-hardy in their current condition, but once they open up they can be killed by just a couple of hours below freezing.
