Unhappy Peach blossoms, 28 deg or lower help?

I knew this was going to happen with the wackey winter we have had. My peach trees are covered in blossoms. I know mil's apples will prob fall off after tonights 28F temp. They usually do when they bloom too early. Do you think my peach blooms are going to drop off as well?

TIA!

My peach tree did the same thing. I'm in GA and it hasn't been to cold at night but it did go to the 30's a few nights. It does worry me that I won't have a lot this year.

Oh no! Do you have anywhere you can get the white gardener's cloth (row cover cloth)? I'd try to drape the tree with that and/or a tarp and put a tent heater under it.

Well, I think they did ok. We didn't get the hard freeze they forcasted. Only 30 last night. I will drape them next time. Great idea. Don't know how I forgot about that, lol. We always had to do that with plants in Fl. Thanks hun!

I was a very little girl the last time I picked a peach from a tree. It was the size of a softball! Sad that the orchards in CA are all being mowed over for housing tracts.

I remember figs that big, now I can't find anyone that has them. Gramma had two huge peach trees that we canned from eyery year in Manhattan Bch. They took the trees down, so so so sad! We lived in Fl befor ewe moved here and the oranges and tangerrines were every where. Most are replaced with housing developments now. You can reach out the window to shake the neighbors hand. Much of why we left!

The farmers here in Colorado put burn barrels next to the fruit trees to keep them warm?
