For Boone County on our farms it's all good. No late frost and plenty of rain this summer.
Our Apple Orchard is a bumper crop this year. The limbs are so loaded that some of them are breaking out of the trees. Judging by the piles on the ground the deer have been eating good. Normally I kind of take offense to them using the orchard as their buffet, but this year, it's apples everywhere. I even got pears.
The crab apples back on the hill are loaded too.
Persimmon trees look okay.
The butter nut & walnut trees are thick. Beech & hickory are good. I assume accorns are good cause even in bad years we always got plenty.
I'm blessed that my grand dad nor his dad ever wanted their land timbered. As they put it, "Never needed the $$$$$ that bad to have someone destroy the forest" Plus, they planted good mast trees on the property. Result is oak trees that are 100+ years old. My idea of a good tree hugger.
A 4'-5' diameter Oak that's more than 100 years old is a beautiful sight to see. A nice Buck feeding under it for acorns makes it even prettier.
