Been waiting to hold off on saying this for a few days but I think its getting very likely were are in line for a repeat of an early bloom like last year. The wild almond trees are pitching the color pink as of today and the high pressure and high temps are set to stick around. My son was out pruning almonds yesterday and says our first variety is "on the move."
With the highs in my area and Modesto forecast for over 60 degrees the next 8 days with a few of them close to 70 there is little chance the buds will keep their jackets on much longer. Warm up them forklifts ladies and gentleman cause the games are about to begin.
Was tossing the last round of Keiths miracle sub on today and the pollen was coming in so hard I think the bees might just toss it out the back door.
