Fingers crossed for a good cherry crop this year.

I think the snowstorm last week did for the plum again.

Oooooh. I hope you have a good one too! I'd love a cherry tree but I don't think they'll do well this far south. I'll just have to make do with apples and the magic of supermarkets.

I managed to find an orchard here in VA that specializes in heirlooms and managed to get to taste a bunch of them to find trees perfect for the area that I like. I'm growing them espalier so I have space to fit them in my townhouse yard. Figs do very well here and my pomegranate was definitely successful last year. Gardening is about experimenting!

Ornamental cherries do very well here, and there are always plenty of cherries at the summer farmers' markets, so. And the late windstorm didn't seem to blow away too many blossoms, though I'm told that some orchards did badly.

(Bing cherries are my favourites, which apparently don't ship well? But they're so good.)

I haven't heard for sure, but the snow storm we got in March was supposed to be really killer for the peach crop. Hoping it's not the case.

I miss good sour cherries from Michigan but like you said, they don't ship well. So I make my maraschino cherries out of whatever sweet cherries I can get at Whole Foods.
