Sounds like a good year to grow annual fruits. Seedlings of Solanum
burbankii are coming up all over my flower beds in spite of a couple of
28 degree frosts after they had germinated.
Maybe everyone should plant melons. :-)

Our damage is extensive. I've never seen anything like it. Tulip
poplars with all the new growth very dark green and hanging down.
Persimmons (except my one asian), mulberries, blueberries, any nut tree
that had started to leaf out, huge oaks all with the new shoots hanging
down. We'll have little or no fruit - apples & pears, cherries all
shot.. Native plants also severely damaged - spice bush, pawpaw,
don't know if the mayhaw fruit will drop or not - it's too early to
tell the extent of the damage on some things, but a drive into
Cookeville is enough to make one sick at heart. Hector Black, zone 6
