    • Hi, Oscar.

      I hope that your fruit trees manage to produce despite the strange weather this year. What is now Manhattan, KS used to be a major apple-growing area until several consecutive years of warm early Spring temperatures followed by late freezes wiped out the crops. Around the same time, the Northwestern US was really taking off with apple production, and shipping methods improved, so large scale apple production never really returned to this area in full force. A friend of mine has an heirloom orchard, though, and grows several varieties of apples, pears and apricots.

      Good luck! Laruie

    • It really is disappointing. I had to haul 15 pots of flowers into the garage last night. They won’t be coming out today! I hope that the snow misses your area.
