We had overnight temperatures in the mid 20’s (24.7) on Tuesday (May 11) and were very worried about buds and blossoms that are vulnerable at this stage. After assessing things for a day or two afterwards it looks like we dodged that bullet. Our location on a slope towards the top of the hill lends itself to good air drainage and that combined with early sun may have saved us. Other growers I know in New York and New Hampshire were not as lucky, losing much of their potential crop.
