Good luck to you. Everything is behind here, the last frost took care of all most all of our fruit trees. Only one apple tree has apples on it and it was the one planted in the 1930's. But their only about half way grown. Of the 2 plum trees we have maybe a dozen plums. The temp. tonight is supposed to be 47 deg. F. We usually don't see these night temps until the last week of Aug. to beginning of Sept. I am still hoping for elderberries but they are just blooming.

My cherry trees didn't produce much this year due to the late frost.
