Like the lack of rain aint enough then we had to get some freezing temps for a few days! The pecan trees had already put on tender leaves & some were ready to pollinate. The young trees are burnt & much of the bigger trees top growth are burnt also. The big trees should fair better but I dont know if we will have a crop or not. Danny is worried about the young trees living. Danny called the county extension man to ask his opinion of it all. Well he had only seen a freeze like this once in his life...so who knows. The blueberry farmers are in a pickle too! They already had fruit on their plants! DRY!! Oh my it is sooo dry here. We haven't had any rain since March the 1st & our water table has been low for a few years now. Well there is one thing about it all....GOD knows what we need before we ask. I wonder how many of the farmers have murmured but not ASKED?! I think I'll do a mental check of that when I'm beating around hear. I will make it a priority to ask the farmers if they have ASKED GOD for rain. You never know what will come out of it all!
