Even in the rain

Check the plants under the eaves of the house. The plants will be in need of water soon. Check for soil moisture with a trowel or shovel.

While pruning today (another pruning class), I noticed that every bud on a pear tree had 2 mm of dead tissue on each bud from the December freeze. This will mean that the leaves will be deformed, have brown edges or the bloom may have been damaged. Time will tell.
