Today, the peaches (O’Henry) opened their buds. Peaches follow plums and apricots. The conciliation prize will, most likely, go to the apple (Granny Smith) tree. The Warren Pear tree has never bloomed. This year looks like a repeat performance. The Fantasia Nectarine looks pretty puny. If old Fantasia doesn’t get its act together, it is in extreme danger of being replaced.
