Almonds Bloom Snapshot Update
Except for a few places where temperatures dropped below -1 degrees C for a brief moment, the weather has been perfect so far. Bud is doing great on the hard shells, and Monterey is looking good so far. In the region around Modesto, the existing NP outlook is a mixed bag.
As compared to previous blooms, the timing and overlap of some of the blooms has been a little off. Some orchards are in the midst of petal fall, and with the weather this week, we should see even more orchards at this point.
