Good evening! I have been up in VA all week for both strawberry and 
blackberry and raspberry meetings. In reviewing our weather situation in NC, it looks like there may be some 
risk of frost tomorrow morning in central and
northern piedmont counties - but these are areas where the crop is 
still not that advanced. Growers in regions with some open bloom will need
to monitor conditions closely on Sunday night/Monday morning. Newsletter Outline
