After enduring the record cold temperatures in December, I wanted to respond  some of the questions and comments we’ve been getting about damage to dormant buds around the Valley and post the following pictures that show the range of damage we are seeing on flower buds at this time.  Although we are not sure how much the extent of damage will translate to crop loss the following season, we do expect that many of the partially damaged buds will still produce some flowers next spring.
