4.19.20 Buds are moving along and first report of Monilinia pinheads

Reports are that buds are starting to open in the midcoast and Hancock region and that there are a few very early buds at F2 (crown stage).  I have an early report of Monilinia pinheads in Hope on Friday April 17.  I suspect with the warm weather this past weekend  we will have more bud development and some fields may be getting close by the end of this coming week.

Please let me know how your plants and mummy berry  plots are doing.
