His business is building ice castles. Will that get harder in a warming world?
"In the movie frozen queen elsa magically creates a palace maid of sparkling ice for brent christianson making an ice palace is harder but the results are still enchanting. We tried to create. What feels like a other worldly experience. Christensen is the founder of ice castles. His company builds elaborate structures that tower up to forty feet high. They start by making thousands of icicles. Which the fuse together. And then spray repeatedly with water so given a month of good cold weather we can create some pretty massive structures. Low temperatures are good for building but visitors dislike extreme cold so the company's sites in utah. Colorado new hampshire and wisconsin are in areas that often hover near thirty two degrees some years. It's really cold some years. It's not and we just gotta hold our breath and work with what we have last year. The wisconsin locations opening was delayed because the ice was melting and climate. Change is bringing more warm days. Long-term definitely if i were to pass this down generation generation. We'd be moving further north. I'm sure but for now.

How will last year's rainy weather impact us next season?
"With the rain that we had on new year's eve we set records pretty much all over the state rainfall. Yep it was the wettest year on record so my question is Even though we don't know what's ahead. What impact will that have in the spring. Mark it I don't know that it will be identifiable. And the reason for that being that as the tops of the trees go dormant so to do the root systems. Now that doesn't mean they're totally dormant because We we kinda pray for rain in the fall not quite as much as we had because water in the soil freezes at thirty two wonderful. We've known that for years now for us with the tender skin running the body temperature ninety eight six Thinking of ground freezing the top few inches or more is Quite destructive in our mind however at thirty two degrees when ice forms. It insulates the roots. Now being insulated does maybe keep them a little bit more viable in terms of of respiration. But i i don't think this amount of water. This time of year will impact too much now. If at the point of spring we get into The plants trying to grow the saps running in the maple trees and so on If we get into a tremendous of rain then when the plant is physiologically functioning. There's no leaves you. You could expect there to be some impact but right now and i have seen water laying in Well flat spots well. Not quite flat spots If for the last several days now and that indicates that we've had a great plenty certainly some of that will last a lot of it will drain on through as his normal but as soon as it freezes then those routes will be in a block of ice which to the root at thirty two is a blessing because at twenty nine just three degrees less than that when the roots freeze dry because there's no installation from the water freezing and insulating them. You can have major root damage.

I'm Scared to Invest in Real Estate in a College Town Right Now
"Anthony is in Kansas City High Anthony. Welcome to the Dave. Ramsey show. Hi doing great. How can I help? I have about a half million dollars in my checking account and I have had it in there for a couple of years I'm trying to figure out exactly what to do with it. My plan was to use it for real estate. But the real estate market got me a little spooked right now while or. we live in a college shirt close to a college town and. the market there they've built so many brand new complexes in the last. Ten Years Nobody's going to college. Okay. I'm with you exactly the enrollment rates are going down you know so I'm a little bit Leery of that. So what town are you at all? I'm Manhattan. Kansas Yeah, okay All right yes. You're far enough away from Kansas City that you're probably not investing in. Kansas City. Correct okay, Anthony holder you. I'm forty five. Okay. You've done a great job. Yeah. Are you planning to stay Manhattan. That depends don't necessarily need to have a hobby farm. I'm I'm an electrical contractor by trade. But my my real estate holdings I have a couple of rental properties to, but I have about a million and a half in real estate that's all paid for. about one, hundred, thousand in cash five, hundred, thousand in my checking. about four, hundred, thousand other assets like. Crack loaders tractors. You're. A. Stud. Done. So proud of you. It's got to feel great man really did it and I'm assuming you did all this start assuming you to all the starting from nothing. For nothing inherited nothing way to go well, here's what I would do if I, woke up in your shoes and I find myself in similar situations from time to time. I'm between real estate deals and I need access to the cash when I get ready to do the next real estate deal. That's where I find myself. It's where you find yourself because you're not going to drop that half million in Manhattan you've made that decision. I'm not going to recommend if you've listened to me for more twenty minutes, you know this to be a long distance landlord. and. So what I'm GonNa end up doing is just parking this probably in like an S. and P. Five hundred. you know a no load fund there's no commissions and just ride the market with it a little bit while I'm waiting to decide what I'm GONNA do. and. One of two things will happen. One of three things will happen. You decide to stay in Manhattan and the market get soft as you predict. So you will not pull that money out in buying Manhattan. So you're probably going to turn and invest in some other vehicle for probably some mutual fund or something number. Two thing that could happen as you move and you're living in whatever Kansas City and you got a great market to invest in. Then, you pull the money out and you invest it then what was the third thing that could happen. The third thing could happen would be Manhattan back the college market firms back up and you feel good about investing in Manhattan again, pull the money out there s and P and invest go so your parking it until something else moves another variable moves in the situation. But checking accounts not okay. Yeah. I realize that it's been but you know how it is Kinda fly. And I'm sure your bank is reaching out blowing up your phone with all their ideas and thoughts. Real helpful now. Drysdale's on the line. There's a saw ball mister guides deals on the line. There's a fourth option you may begin to look at something that gets to be on sale where you've got someone that has to sell or is looking to sell, and now you've put yourself in a situation to start to have some conversations about potentially buying that that could happen as the market. In Manhattan that's right. that somebody couldn't quite survived the turn and it's making an upward turn and you're comfortable with it that could result in a really good for a great deal. Yeah. That's that's a very, very good point. Dr. John Loney is. One of three, thirty, two degrees he's got he's got more degrees than a thermometer is in higher. Ed. And he's talked about with you and I and a bunch of US behind the scenes and even some what on the air The to the extent that. Because of the student loan debacle and because covert scenario by home, they realized These colleges are trying to charge just as much sitting at home I'm not getting like the college experience. I don't see any ivy on the walls here at my house. So to those two things hitting together are accelerating p the demand for college degrees. On campus living college degrees, they're accelerating that demand dropping right been dropping. Student loan the covert thing is pushed it over the edge. So, we are seeing some things like he's describing a college town like Manhattan, which is what Kansas State. Of Kansas, state and So you know we're seeing so many smaller towns where the economy's driven by resoluteness. Affecting their economies it really is a lot of those around America.

alderman in oak creek stuff yes I am what's going on in that city lot of good stuff and yet we have we're on a nice run I have to say that all right so we're talking about I'm part of officiating this move to start punishing parents that are acting up one the follows from this is the fact that there's less people that are going into purring officiating and that's a big problem it it's across the board not just baseball my world is baseball but softball I hear stories about football officials that you know generally those guys work as a team and for years and you know you you guys are just tired of it and and they're given up in these guys have been out there for real ten twelve years are our biggest problem in baseball is we we tend to be able to recruit a lot of high school kids who want to come out and earn some money it's a lucrative part time job it's it's very it can be very good if you hustle out there you can do very well in this area because with the explosion of of select baseball league awesome opportunity every weekend every night all over there to try county area so how do we fix this problem how do we get more people going into the we are obviously then what they'll supply bar supply demand I got to pay more probably which is a good thing but if not if not people are seeing this is saying I don't want to grieve how do you fix that problem well the pay is coming up for for some weeks and for and and for high school ball in places the the what we need to do is we have a training program that that will start in January will train empires for all tense ten straight weeks and we push them out there into the field properly equipped with a basic knowledge of how to how to how to umpire baseball but we need to we as an organization and and other empires need to to mentor to these young kids because if we can get on past the first first year into her second year generally they might stick around and I know of a lot of high school because I work with that are now doing heights high school ball and they've been around for you five five years or so so we've got them the older guys are were shortages you know I'm sixty two I don't know how many more years I'll be able to run around so you got an H. factor and then you have the the issues with the the parents and the coaches and players were folks just you know all players to subside I'm done with the stuff I don't need to have this hassle anymore one of the things that's complicating things is the of the arrival of smart phones so they can document this whole thing and put blasted out of social media which that's right and you know it isn't always the parents in the coaches at our problem in there is there are some players in my world again I'm part baseball umpires are perfect all my gosh you know I've made mistakes I've owned my mistakes and when I've I've gone back to coaches and apologize for making it miss you know misinterpreting rule but you know you got guys that show up in and that not every not everywhere but their guys to show up in bed looking pants and dirty shirts and it's all about them just getting the money you know they could care less even had their face in a rule book in years because changes every year and he and the biggest one next year is going to be the new designated hitter role but if you don't if you don't learn those rules you're going to have issues and these guys are out there it's all about them not about the kids and they they had they grow these rabbit ears and just hear everything that's being sad and then they feel obligated to go back there and argue with the parents and coaches when that's not what and and they cause a problem and then you know what happens parents are turning on their smartphones and recording everything and next thing you know they're on you too let's go back to lily World Series you said you were at two of them I'm tiring how much fun is that for those kids you know it's it's a blast the I was down in easily South Carolina for big league and Taylor Michigan for junior baseball you know you you you got kids from all over the world that they come here and my game when the games I did there was with Chinese Taipei and they could understand English and I can understand their language but they understand what a ball and strike user and I it's just it's just fun to have these kids get out there and eight the I did some crossover games last year Australia versus Missouri and you know these kids are you know they're playing baseball than are out playing Australian football afterwards it's it's just a blast I mean that's the level of little league that's really competitive and and it is fun to watch and they're all on TV now yes that this that I I always say I talk about the purity of it it's it's before they get messed up by all the other stuff that comes in our lives just to just excited to be playing baseball and are in a really great venue real quick if somebody wants to find out

How a Kentucky Lab Worker Created Dippin' Dots
"On the show today how biologist Kirk Jones dripped ice cream into liquid nitrogen nitrogen and turned it into dipping dots the novelty ice cream brand sold at stadiums malls and theme parks around the World <music> so if I were to distill a show down to a single phrase it future entrepreneur identifies a problem and decides to solve it right. That's what got US lift and AIRBNB IAN dyson vacuums problem solution but in the world of vise screen especially by the end of the twentieth century you could argue that there wasn't really much of a problem to solve yeah you could make more interesting flavors. Maybe Abuse Higher Butterfat milk but reinvented I mean where would you go beyond scoops and soft serve and shakes and popsicles ice cream cakes aches and cookie sandwiches right. I mean how do you out innovate all of that. Well the short answer with a lot of liquid nitrogen which is really where the story of dipping dots begins. It was one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and Kirk Jones was working as a biological researcher and in the lab were vats of liquid nitrogen which may know pretty much freezes anything it touches almost instantly Kurt also happen to be a guy who liked to make his on ice cream and one day hanging on the lab P wondered. Could I use that liquid nitrogen to reinvent stream so weeks later he brought in a jar. HR OF ICE Cream base basically sugar cream and Vanilla Shenley dripped a bit into the liquid nitrogen and instantly those droplets frozen to teeny tiny ice cream beads now. They didn't look like ice cream but once Kerr tasted them he knew he was onto something in those ice cream pellets got him so excited he quit his job to turn that little experiment into dipping dots the ice cream of the future and it would soon spread to shopping malls theme parks eventually sports stadiums today. DIPPING DOTS is a brand that does report three a hundred million dollars in annual sales except it's also a bran that no longer belongs to Kerr Jones in a brand that didn't actually make him rich which means that unlike any of our other episodes this one is almost a cautionary tale about how you can lose the thing so you built and the thing you loved but for now let's start at the beginning in rural southern Illinois were Kirk grew up on his family's farm with his mom dad GRANDPA two older sisters. I remember driving a tractor for the first time from one bar into the other when I was seven years old and you don't play sports and stuff in school but I always felt like when I got home I had to work you know and he'll feed the bigs and do things like that. So it's kind of a very early age I guess learning that responsibility but it it you know looking back. I'm glad I grew up the way that I did. I have no regrets at all is really a good way. Good way to grow up. Did it feel when like when you were a kid. Did it feel like your parents since struggled to keep food on the table or or was the farm pretty prosperous now. It felt like a struggle. You're exposed to all the talks about you know if it doesn't rain by Friday you know we're not going to get made or you have diseases seizes it can get in your you know your pigs that kind of thing so but you know we never went hungry or anything like that but we always knew that we were dependent on a lot of factors that were actually out of our control whether and and things like that so I think maybe that was good in a way Kinda learned to live with risk a little bit yeah. I'm given that your family didn't always have a lot of money around <hes>. Were there ways that you kind of figured out how to earn extra money for yourself. When you were kid kid yeah I mean my dad had a radio and TV repair business and so we had all these tubes laying around and so me and a friend of mine actually started our we'll radio repair business probably in grade school like fifth or sixth grade and then me and him also decided to get into the chicken business one time we ended up what he had ordered hundred chickens to put on his farm and I ordered one hundred on mining we were gonna go together and gather eggs and work together on it and then <hes> me another friend had a <hes> a straw business we call it which is where you take wheat Straw Bale it and we sold that a lot of the people that worked on roads because they would do landscaping when they finished a project they they shoplift strong? put down over the grass seed and so there's always coming up with them little way to make a little extra money did did you would you sort of look at your family's situation you know the whims of the weather or of whether there was market demand and for corn and soybeans or whether there was a some kind of disease that you know and and did you ever think I want to have a different life. I don't I don't WanNa do this as a as a grownup oh I think so <hes> when I went to school I studied microbiology because I really he was interested in farm related things like making ethanol from corn and just things like that but at the end of the day it allowed me to get a job that actually had a salary our which which was really felt pretty good because I've I saw something steady there and I did enjoy the steady paycheck yeah when ahead so you I guess you spend like six year. He spent six years getting your. BA and your masters degree in microbiology graduate I think this is around <hes> nineteen ninety-six and you get your first job with a company called altech biotechnology yeah <hes> just outside Lexington in a little town goal Nicholasville and and we lived in Lexington <hes> about eight or nine miles more or went to work <hes> what what was that company doing what was there was their business what they were starting to get off into the animal feed business making bacteria cells that could actually put back into the animal feed so in other words you you know if we eat yogurt and it has lactobacillus Senate and that's good for us and they call it probiotics <hes> sure we would concentrate those down we would freeze them and then we would freeze driving into the powder so that's kind of how I got started with. altech was in the animal feed side which is what they really grew with over the next several years and to be clear I mean why were you freezing. These culture was it so that like essentially don't die so that they would keep their potency. Yes and you WANNA freeze them as quickly as you can. Because if you ever notice notice like an ice tray and you put it in the freezer and you come back thirty or forty minutes you'll see little needles across the surface. That's from freezing something very slowly if he frees up very fast those ice crystals are smaller so if you freeze the bacteria sales quickly you get tiny ice crystals and then there's a good chance that those <unk> cells can come back to live so I started playing with liquid nitrogen which I had never really worked with before but I knew it was very cold who's three hundred twenty degrees below zero zero Fahrenheit and I found that you could pour the nitrogen into the cultures and freeze of big big Blob or you could pour the cultures into the nitrogen and freeze a big BLOB <music> but I've found that if you dribbled it in a little at a time that you could actually form pellets Scott like freezing raindrops words see still still have the active probiotics in these pellets. Let me let me just ask you about about liquid nitrogen I because the freezing point right <hes> for or liquid for waters thirty two degrees zero degrees centigrade. You're talking about something that is minus three hundred degrees Fahrenheit. I I have to imagine that working with liquid nitrogen very dangerous. It would be the equivalent working with lava right right just in the opposite way yeah <hes> it is dangerous dangerous but what I tell people because we've had a lot of people at worked around it over the last thirty years but I tell them it's just like it's Kinda handling boiling water. I said you have to treat it with respect but everybody works with boiling water if they're cook but the other danger that you have with liquid nitrogen is if you're in a very closed in area it can displace oxygen so you're not on the Fox Dejan you into your lungs but other than that it's a lot like hot water. You know you wouldn't WanNa Fall Nevada hot

If you're an american you've ever ever had a conversation with someone from another country about the weather. You've probably been a little confused when he or she said the afternoon. Temperature is a nice twenty one degrees to to you that might sound like a chilly winter day but to them. It's a pleasantly warm springtime temperature. That's because virtually every other country throughout the world uses the celsius temperature scale part of the metric system which denotes the temperature at which water freezes as zero degrees and the temperature at which boils as one hundred degrees but the u._s. u._s. And a few other holdouts the cayman islands the bahamas believes in palo clinging to the fahrenheit scale in which water freezes at thirty two degrees and boils at two hundred and twelve twelve that means that the twenty one degrees celsius temperature that we previously mentioned is the equivalent of a balmy seventy degrees fahrenheit in the united states. The persistence of fahrenheit is one of those puzzling american idiosyncrasies like how the u._s. uses the word soccer to describe what the rest of the planet calls football so why is it that the u._s. Us uses a different temperature scale and why doesn't it switch to be consistent with the rest of the world. There doesn't seem to be a logical answer except perhaps inertia americans generally. I don't really seem to distrust the metric system. A twenty fifteen poll found that just twenty one percent of the public favoured converting to metric measures while sixty four percent were opposed it might make more sense of fahrenheit was old school in celsius with some modern upstart a sort of the new coq of temperature but in reality they were created only about two decades apart part fahrenheit was created by its namesake. A german scientist named daniel gabriel fahrenheit who in the early seventeen hundreds was the first known person design alcohol and mercury thermometers that we're both precise and consistent so that any of his instruments would register the same temperature reading in a given place at a given moment thanks to his working skill in managing glass when fahrenheit started out the key thing he was interested in was coming up with the same temperature reading all the time not comparing temperatures of different things or different times of day but when he presented a paper on his system for measuring temperature to the royal society of london in seventeen twenty four he apparently realized that he had come up with the standard temperature scale as well. We spoke with don hilfiger a research meteorologist to colorado state university's cooperative institute for research in the atmosphere and and also president of the u._s. Metric association a group that advocates conversion to the metric system he explained basically the fahrenheit scale was devised a zero as the coldest oldest temperature for a mix of ice and salt water and the upper end was thought to be body temperature approximately ninety six degrees fahrenheit making a scale that could be progressively divided by two do this resulted in the freezing melting temperature being thirty two degrees fahrenheit not very useful number. The boiling temperature for water was then set at two twelve again not not a very useful number the temperature's one hundred and eighty degrees apart again a multiple of two nevertheless the system apparently sounded pretty good to officials officials of the british empire who adopted fahrenheit as their standard temperature scale which is how eventually became established in the american colonies. Well meanwhile though in seventeen forty forty two a swedish astronomer named anders celsius came up with a less unwieldy system based on multiples of ten in which there was precisely a one hundred degree difference between the freezing and boiling temperatures of water at sea level the neat one hundred degrees symmetry of the celsius scale made it a natural fit for the metric system which was formerly developed by the french in the late seventeen eighteen hundreds but the english speaking world nevertheless clung stubbornly to its preference for awkward units such as the pound in the inch and fahrenheit went along for the ride but finally in nineteen sixty one the u._k. Met office then called the u._k. Meteorological office switched teasing celsius to describe temperatures in weather forecasts in order to be consistent with other european countries. Most of the rest of the world soon followed suit with the notable exception of the u._s. Or the national weather service still publishes temperature data atta in fahrenheit. Even though its own staff long ago switched celsius hilter explained the n._w._s. Catering to the public by reporting in degrees fahrenheit whereas whereas much of their operations such as forecast models used degrees celsius and automated weather observations the temperatures recorded in celsius as well should we choose to metric chicken weather reports the fahrenheit layer. That's now added for the u._s. Public could be removed. We also spoke via email with jay hendrix who heads the u._s. National institute standards and technologies thermodynamic meteorology group he points out that the fahrenheit scale does have one significant advantage quote. It has more degrees over the range range of ambient temperatures that are typical for most people. This means that there's a finer grain temperature difference between seventy degrees fahrenheit and seventy one degrees fahrenheit then there is between twenty one degrees celsius twenty two degrees celsius since a human can tell the difference of one degree fahrenheit. This scale is more precise for the human experience on the other hand though the advantage goes away. If a fractional temperature in celsius used hendrix explained for example the equivalent celsius temperature for seventy and seventy ninety one fahrenheit are equivalent to twenty one point one and twenty one point seven degrees celsius.

Is Permafrost Really Permanent?
"Brain stuff lauren Bogle bomb here in two thousand ten. A woolly mammoth carcass was discovered in Siberia near the coast of the laptev sea nicknamed Yuka. This specimen of the long extinct beast died around twenty eight thousand years ago yet her body was astonishingly well preserved complete with patches of reddened for brain that was largely intact and nucleus like cell structures so how did her body lasts so long without rotting away the short answer is Yuka was frozen but not inside some glacier iceberg after death you can became encased in a layer of what's known as permafrost. Let's break down what that is as we know. Water freezes at thirty two degrees Fahrenheit four zero degrees Celsius permafrost is any ground materials such as soil sediment and rock that remains at or below freezing temperatures for at least two consecutive years. It's about twenty five percent of all the land area in the Northern Hemisphere is known to contain permafrost. It was American paleontologist Simone W Mueller who originally coined the term permafrost appointment two of the words permanent and frost despite that name permafrost doesn't last forever thanks to climate change. It's been been thawing in large quantities. This has serious ramifications for the environment and the economy generally speaking permafrost tends to occur in places where The average air temperature is zero degree Celsius or lower every year. According to the national snow and Ice Data Center most of the Northern Hemisphere's permafrost sits between the high high latitudes of sixty and sixty degrees north Siberia Canada Alaska and parts of Scandinavia are loaded with this frigid turf further south permafrost tends to be found in high elevation areas like the Tibetan Plateau and this was elps permafrost isn't as widespread below the equator but it does underlie parts of New Zealand the Andes Mountains and Arctic adjust as its locations vary so does its composition. It's not uniform. Some sections are ice-free while others are made up of more than thirty percent ice likewise the depth age and extent of permafrost. Ken Vary widely oftentimes permafrost permafrost sits beneath an active layer of ground that is a layer that thaws and re freezes seasonally. The permafrost itself can measure anywhere from less than three feet. That's one meter thick to more than five thousand feet or fifteen hundred meters thick and it can get Patchy Northern Alaska occupies a continuous permafrost zone that means permafrost underlies more than ninety percent of the local terrain but at lower latitudes. It's a different story pretty much everything south of the Brooks mountain range sits discontinuance tenuous permafrost zone here permafrost resides under a smaller percentage of the land surface. That's partially because as counter intuitive as it may sound snow. Snow is a really good insulator so when thick blankets of snow stick around all year long they might keep the ground too warm for permafrost likewise in spots. That's where permafrost already exists insulating layers of surface level snow are liable to heat it up but while snows and impediment. Pete is a boon widespread in and around the southern Arctic. Pete is a kind of ground material. That's made up partially decayed organic matter like mosses or swamp plants by and large the. Ground beneath it is kept cool shielded from solar heat this pete safeguards permafrost evergreen forests lend a helping hand to their thickly thickly needled branches pine trees limit the amount of sunlight and snow that hits the surface in the process the evergreens help keep permafrost thawing so permafrost is common below the clustered pines and high elevation high altitude areas the arrangement is mutually beneficial since liquid water can't sleep through hard permafrost. I it acts like a drainage barrier unfrozen water. That's absorbed into the active layer gets trapped. They're barred from travelling deeper into the earth. This water sustained some of the plants that live at the surface although not all permafrost sticks around more than a couple of years some is quite old at minimum. The permafrost in prudhoe Bay Alaska is thought thought to be five hundred thousand years of age and some of the permafrost beneath the Canadians Yukon territory could be more than seven hundred thousand years old inside the ladder scientists. It is found in ancient horse leg complete d._N._A.. Samples Permafrost can keep all kinds of organic matter preserved over long periods of time in two thousand twelve Russian scientists is regenerated live plants from ice age fruits that have been encased in permafrost for about thirty thousand years unfortunately as permafrost thaws the trapped organic organic material decomposes releasing carbon and methane into the atmosphere those gases exacerbate climate change and the bad news is according to a twenty nineteen can study published in nature communications various permafrost deposits around the world have warmed up by a couple of degrees between the years two thousand seven and two thousand sixteen right now approximately one point seven billion tons of carbon is trapped in permafrost scientists. Don't know how much of this will be released into the atmosphere. If current trends continue continue or how quickly it will In the city of New Orleans gresh alone more than one hundred residential buildings have been damaged because the one solid permafrost beneath them is softening the warming permafrost has has also triggered landslides drained lakes and torn roads apart. It's yet another reason to be concerned about our contributions to climate change but to end on a positive note remember the woolly mammoth Yuga found in Siberian permafrost in two thousand ten. She was so well preserved that an early twenty nineteen scientists were able to extract eighty eight eight nucleus like structures from her cells an attempt to coax them back to life. The team injected the nuclei into mouse ovarian cells and while the cells never fully divided divided they did complete the process called spindle assembly which is a step where chromosomes attached to spindle structures before the parent cell breaks into two daughter cells. Perhaps as genetics progresses will be able to help the process

One of a pair that NASA landed upon the red planet that year was designed to last for just a few months on the rough dusty terrain of the Martian surface.

Well, this means if we don't get enough chill hours. Won't bloom, and we don't get through. If we get too many chil- hours. It may bloom early. We get a late freeze. We don't get any fruit.

We really have only gotten two hundred and fifty chill hours valid chill hours for our fruit. Trees, well, if you have a peach that requires six or seven hundred. You're not going to get fruit. We need a whole lot more chill hours. Even our most reliable of fruit. Trees like the meth Lee Plum it needs three hundred and we may not have hit enough chill hours for it.
