Yikes, plums bud swelling already (1/19/05)
I looked at my Elepahant Heart plum tree yesterday afternoon and noticed the flower buds had swelled up a tiny bit. Then I looked at my Santa Rosa and it had even more swelling. Then I looked at the Satsuma, and it was more advanced yet. The petal color is actually showing. Gads, does this mean it's gonna be flowering in February? We're in an unseasonably warm week here in Portland, OR following some colder than average temps. Is my plum crop doomed for this season?
