Covered the cherry trees

I was just outside covering the cherry trees I planted last year.  They are doing quite well this year and are already flowering thanks to this very early spring we are having this year.

However, a forecasted low of 36 is awfully close to freezing and I don’t want to take any chances that those blossoms will drop off.  I threw a sheet over each tree which should keep them a few degrees warmer than the outside air.

Fingers crossed!

  1. They were fine. They are showing one oddity however… one of the trees has about 200 blossoms and the other has, literally, 5 blossoms. Hopefully one has just grown a little stronger than the other over the last year.
