    We found lots of this in March.

    That is the real pretty stage of the apple blossoms. Problem is, now they are opening and 25 forecast for tonight and 27 for tomorrow night.

    And we made this thing to prepare for this fall. Now will we even get to use it? Not looking good folks.

    Beautiful press Dennis. Apples can take it pretty low, but I'm not sure about 25. I saw a story out of Leelanau County that one tart cherry orchard may have lost 90% of his crop for this year, and he owns 1700 acres. Imagine taking that kind of hit. All due to the incredibly warm weather in March, then back to normal nighttime temps!

    Dennis, did you do that from plans? Very nice.
    Our apple trees are just popping buds,...no blossoms yet.

    Uper, I was afraid for those around Traverse City. This could be a difficult year for most.

    Dave, we purchased the hardware and the plans. It worked out well. Now we are hoping for some good apples come fall.
