My apples don't seem to have lost a leaf yet, but everything has been
slow to drop leaves this year (not that bad, though). Of course, it's
been a very warm fall, at least until the last couple of days. It was 78
degrees on Monday (only 12° now).
It's also been very dry. We've had only .05" of precipitation in the
last month, which is low even for us. (Yet we're way ahead for the year.
It's been a very strange year, weather-wise.) But I don't know if that
would affect leaf drop.
