The snow and freezing temperatures may have reeked havoc on my young fruit trees, especially those that had already began to flower. Alrescate was right in her reply " I suppose the snow knocked down the pollen count at least..." Unfortunately that was not something that we needed. Yes, I know there are many people that are grateful not to suffer with their allergies if only for a few days, but those of us that are attempting orchard's, well, it's a whole other story. We need those pollen counts to be up so that are trees can bear fruit. With this cold snap, the pistons of my peach tree, which are the most delicate part, will not be able to reproduce. If they are able, then there is a high chance that my peaches will be deformed, and not very tasty. And the only way we are going to know is by waiting until the summer.
On the bright side, my late blooming berries and fruits should be fine. Everyone is mulched in and trying to keep warm. I still have a few sticks in the house waiting to be planted, I will have fruit this year, in one form or another.
