Bad Year for Cherry Lovers
I really enjoy the cherry products from Country Ovens. Seems they even have a blog, too....Cherry Chat! Check out their Cherry De-Lites....hey are De-Licious! And stop by their blog and give them a "hello!"
Door County fruit growers say last year's drought combined with an unusually large crop could result in fewer cherries this year.
Richard Weidman of the University of Wisconsin Peninsular Research Station says early signs show 25 percent to 50 percent fewer buds on cherry trees there. Weidman says trees were weakened last year when an unusually large crop coincided with a drought. The lack of moisture also made it harder for trees to get nutrients during the winter. - Chicago Tribune
