Hey Peakoiler, I have a question. Both my apple tree & peach tree set fruit, this being the 2nd year they're in the ground. I had about a dozen apple buds and maybe half a dozen peach buds.
The last few days all of the apple buds except 1, which is growing into a pretty good apple, were on the ground. Same with the peaches - two bigger growing ones are still on the tree, the others were lying beneath it today. Now I thought it was birds for sure, but I was doing some reading on "June Drop" . Do you think maybe this is what I've got? Neither tree is very large - I bought both of them bare root from a nursery with special stocked trees, not bigger ones from Lowes or anything, and they were shipped to me last (2009) spring. I'm wondering if the trees knew on their own they were too small to support all those fruits and dumped most of them.
After fueling up their cars, Twyman says they bowed their heads and asked God for cheaper gas.There was no immediate answer, but he says other motorists joined in and the service station owner didn't run them off.
