Here in Massachusetts most stuff is still dormant, or nearly dormant,
so we've escaped the worst of it. But I notice that my apricot tree
is at pink tip, (or pink round puff, as the case may be) and wonder
if that means this year's crop is doomed.
I was planning to do my apple grafting this weekend, but I think I
may have to wait another week or two.
eastern Mass., zone 6
