We had an unusually cold winter and a late freeze. I lost a seedling peach, two young figs, and had bud damage to A. arguta and D. kaki.

The mature figs survived, but had varying amounts of die back. The pome blooms had some damage, and as the crazy cold weather was followed by hail storms, this has been the worst year I have experienced for fireblight strikes on every pome I own.
