We have had a very hard week and it looks even more bleak tonight. We have lost 2 cows this week while birthing calves. We lost the calves as well. We have another cow that delivered today and she and her calf are not doing well. We got the fist cow and calf pairs buried today.
Tonight we are going to hit about 25 degrees. That will wipe out our plum crop, most nectarines and some peaches. They say the wind will be very light. We need the wind to stay up throughout those hours to keep the frost at bay. They say the temps will deep below 32 for 6-8 hours.
Last year we lost all peaches, plums, nectarines, pears and some other crops. Read about Our Farm Life here.
My parents have already started putting bloom spray on. That is several thousand dollars alone. Please pray!
Tonight I ask that you lift up farmers that will be affected by the weather tonight. A freeze like this will drive grocery prices even higher. My parents did not earn a dime off of their fruit crops last year. They are in need of a good year. Please ask for the Lord's will to be done.
We love farming and the joys it brings but we need prayers tonight. God is so good...............
