Hazelnuts leafing out.  Protect new
foliage from Eastern Filbert Blight.
Pears - near full bloom.
Early apples - pushing pink.
Peaches, cherries and plums - some
blooming, some petal fall.
All berries - leafing out.
Weather - seems to be about 2 weeks
ahead of NORMAL but almost 2 months
ahead of the last three years.
Some soil is drying out quite
quickly for April.
Gear up for a very heavy Spotted Wing
Drosophila year in berries, as everything
is earlier this year so far.
Rain has been during cold periods so
less scab pressure.
