  • Warm weather advances fruit season

    The unseasonably warm temperatures won’t absolve farmers in Henry County from the danger of frost, but it will accelerate the season for fruit bearing plants by as much as two weeks. 

    The recent temperatures reaching 70 degrees and above pose the greatest threat to Paul Tokosh’s Hillview Farm and Orchard, which includes 20 acres of apple, nectarine and peach trees. He also grows asparagus, potatoes and several varieties of berries. The warm weather will wake trees from their winter dormancy and the process cannot be reversed.
