Bloomin' wonderful

Apples bloom at Nagog Farm on May 13.

Where last year's blossoms came early, this year the orchards are just approaching peak by mid-May.

A week of cool wet weather has settled in over much of New England; let's hope the blossoms stick around long enough to let wind and bees do their thing.


  1. Hoping for the best. Some of my precocious varieties have blossoms that opened early because of being last to plant out of the warm garage which abnormally started them. The old trees are at pink, bloom should be within next few days now. I'll send some pics later.

  2. Yessir. I know of it from you of course!. This is why I was telling you your blog is more than just an Apple review...its an Apple everything that helps growers and consumers alike. How do I post pictures on here? I'll email them to you.


Join the conversation! We'd love to know what you think.
