These will turn green, instead of yellow-green, won't they?
These will fill in, won't they?
We do know some hard truth about the baby field...
Winter damage is visible.
You can see that the lower portions of the canes are quite leafed out...but the upper portions -- not so much. Babies are more susceptible to winter damage, and it shows up on the top of the canes. These should look somewhat better over time, but it will not be a good year for this field.
And sadly, as you go around the county, you see that we were not the only ones to suffer winter damage...It looks like Whatcom County may have a short raspberry crop this year...and the longer La Nina stays around, the more challenging it gets.
So we take whatever positive weather news we can -- and we hear that next week the rain will be WARMER!
