Wouldn't you know it - as soon as we plant our almond and cherry tree, we finally get a hard freeze? We don't get these that often. Supposed to get down to like 26 tonight. Oh well, what can we do? I heard the California Almond Growers use sprinklers - and some of the local nurseries are recommending Christmas lights. That won't work for us - we just packed everything away and to the back of our storage in the garage.
We need to be more on the ball next time.
There needs to be a law that garden places can't sell deciduous trees when there still is the possibility of a freeze. Although that would cost them in profits here in California, when one week it's 80 and then next it's a hard free. Perhaps some time for a guarantee for if the weather should change within 10 days of your purchase? That would work. Yeah, for some they say we already have too many laws. I'm not thinking political here- I'm thinking like a concerned gardener.
I crack myself up at times, when I caught myself saying to the husband,
"I can't wait for this winter to end."
REALLY? We've had a beautiful Spring this past winter! So I get a little cold and I've had it. Not really. If it had stayed cold without any peekaboo spring, I could cope better. Like last year, it rained and rained and rained.
I miss the rain.
