Weekend Cold Damages South Carolina Peach Crop

Weekend Cold Damages South Carolina Peach Crop

Freezing weekend temperatures have damaged some South Carolina peaches with one York County grower worrying he may have lost half his crop.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/1ystN3x ) that temperatures dipped into the 20s Sunday morning.

Arthur Black grows peaches west of York and says the cold damaged peach blossoms and he fears half his crop is gone. Ben Smith said he lost some peaches too, but has not yet thinned his crop so he hopes the loss won't be too bad.

Ron Edwards at Springs Farm in Fort Mill tells the newspaper he was up Saturday night warming the peaches and running water over his strawberry plants to prevent them from freezing.

  Geoengineering of the weather is what is causing this. Look at the skies for chemtrail lines and the wavy clouds caused by the use of HAARP.
