Slim pickings for apples this year
Management at Royal Oak Farm Orchard in Harvard estimates they lost about 70 percent of their apples this year.

Early warm temperatures had apple trees flowering ahead of schedule this spring, just in time to get hit with a nasty stretch of April frost and cold temperatures that wiped out the majority of area apples, leaving entire orchards with no choice but to close for the year.
