Robert,

Just got this in an email from the NWS (link below). They are predicting another possible Hard Freeze for this coming Friday night!  My farm is located 16 miles SE of Bartow FL. If we break the record - which they are predicting we will! - it will do serious damage to the already damaged Orange Groves. 

The record is 29 and was set in 1900.

My Orange trees and Grapefruit trees lost all of their leaves from the Hard Freeze 4 weeks ago, and they are just now starting to put on new leafs. I've had several experts from the state of FL tell me the trees can't take another hard freeze in the shape they are in! 

Thanks,
David Christian

Good luck David.
As I’ve been saying, “I think we’ll be fighting in the streets for food long before we’re covered by ice.”
