As of 01/29/2020 we have a total of 751 hours after we reached freezing on October 31, 2019
But we had 56 hours of temps over 73 degrees
total of chilling hours is 695
Need 155 hours to reach 850.
I hope everyone had a wonder holiday season -- Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year. There is just something about starting a new year with new thought of things being different this year however, isn't it best to take one day at a time and enjoy what God has given us and be thankful for each day as they are given.
We have planted 6000 onions and are fixing to replace 100 peach trees that had slowly died after the 2015 tornado that came over the farm.
It looks like we (I) got to mow....seriously in January I got to mow...oh well very thankful for the rain...the trees did a happy dance.
February ...got to watch out for multiple 70 degree days in a row with an upper 50's low's to spray dormant oil. And we will start pruning soon.
Thank you and God Bless you.

Farm tidbit:Chilling hours are the minimum number of hours that a peach tree needs to get, specifically, nighttime temperatures between 32 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit, in order to produce a good crop of peaches.. If the hours are not met (say in a warm winter), the blossoms mostly just fall off the trees and do not set fruit.
