Here in Michigan we are off to a fast spring. Yesterday at 7:30 a.m., it was 57 on the bank thermometer. The temperature should be in the 30s! We hit 81 yesterday, and it will be warmer today. Most apple growers are getting ready to put their first scab sprays on. Yes... three weeks early! Spring has sprung here, with growers trying to wrap up their winter work, and getting their sprayers out.
