"Nearly all of South Carolina's peach crop, Kentucky's peaches, apples, and pecans have been destroyed by the late freeze. Georgia's peach crop has been destroyed, for the most part."
All Things Considered, April 12, 2007
A farmer talked about his entire 25 acre peach crop being blackened and dead from the frost on this program, yesterday. He was going to get a job at Home Depot, to support his family, to supplement the income loss. It seems heartless to complain about the snow and the cold, when this poor man's livelihood is gone, this year because of it.
Some more good news-the bluebirds were out good and early, this morning!! They made it thru and the temps will steadily rise over the next week. I cannot stand those mealworms, I have to pour them in a cup to take out to the birds. Not Jeff! He just pours some in his hand, drops them in the feeder and goes off to work. UGH!!!
Speaking of the birds, I better go check on them. It's going down to 32° tonite...
