Bud Reed Reed Orchards, Ohio

With reguard to the 2011 peach crop in ohio we had a good peach bloom followed by very hectic winds and gale rains. Peach blossoms blown all over orchards. Now 3 weeks later only 1 out of 3 trees have any peaches. Havent figured out yet if the bearing peaches are early middle or late peaches. It was not a great fruit set in Harrison County, Ohio probably due to extreme wicked weather. To my amazement some apple trees set fruit somewhat better. Already looking forward to next season.
