I sure hope that is wrong!

I have honestly still seen (on last saturday) red oak acorns that appear to be eadible, not rotten or germinated. The white oaks have been long gone.


Just wait. Those red oak acorns probably will germinate (if squirrels get around to burying them). That is what is so great about a good red oak acorn crop. Red oak acorns do not germinate until mid to late spring, hence are attractive and available to deer through the winter. White oak acorns on the other hand, although highly attractive and nutritious to deer in October and November, usually go to root or rot by early December, removing them as a food source before winter.

The model runs that look so bad just came out this morning. The huge southward dip in the jet stream forecast in this morning's model run was not forecast in previous runs. I hope this morning's run was just an anomaly.

Generally it takes an actual freeze (temperature 6 feet off the ground below 32 degrees) that lasts several hours to kill the oak blooms. A frost can occur at the ground's surface even when head-high air temperate is 35 or 36 degrees.


Our light frosts of sat morn were very mild .......here in Lawrence county......dont think we suffered any damage whatsoever. Just a light coat across roof tops, i had none on the windshields of the cars. Time will tell but as of today i believe we are in good shape in southern tn.

Accuweather is still showing 38 as an over night low on Friday May 3rd and 40 on May 2nd. I don't think that will effect the acorns, but I have been waiting to put my garden in, and It looks like I will continue to wait.....

Now they have changed it to 49 Friday night and 48 Saturday night. I hope that holds. I would like to get my garden in and not have to worry about it.

Yup, weather late this week doesn't look as bad as the earlier forecasts made it out to be. That's a good thing.
