Apples - continue to bloom.  Early
varieties done blooming.
Coastal cedar rust affecting
Bartlett pears.
Scab infection seems to be down.
EFB is down also due to drier spring.

Weather - cool to cold AMs still
a problem with warm seasoned vegetables.
Frost protection is needed.

Record high temps mean time for irrigation
is closer than previous years.

Peonies blooming a least a week
earlier than normal.
Some rhodies 10 days ahead of normal.

Bee population in many areas with
wild and planted flowering plants are above normal.

The more pollen flowers, the better
for bees and predatory insects.
