Peaches 2019

Looking back at last year's LJ it appears that my peach and nectarine trees are right on schedule. I went outside today since the weather was so nice and checked out my trees. The first flowers on the 2 trees popped today. The nectarine should be spectacular again judging from the number of buds. I'll post pics when the bloom peaks. I had to cover the apricot for 2 days last week when temps fell below freezing. Hopefully that was enough to save this year's crop. We shall see! I see that the cherry blossom festival is starting in DC this week. I'm hoping my tree will finally bloom this year. I got bupkis last year.
