We are under a hard freeze warning and these apple blossoms are probably toast by now. The lone apple tree was blossoming Sunday in T-shirt weather. Temps are forecast to hit 22 in the area and stay below freezing for more than 8 hours.
Stop laughing you Nawtherners, this is serious business.
At least I knew it was coming and had time to prepare by toting the datil peppers and bell pepper plants (both blossoming) into the barn. I also covered the hibiscus and banana trees with plastic to trap ground heat. I don't know if it'll be enough if the subfreezing temps last that long.
