10E2084: We Have No Apples

In many places in New England (including Pops' trees in Peru, Vermont above), there is not one single solitary apple growing. The lawn looks very nice not covered in rotting fruit but the horses are missing out...

"A freak March heat wave caused many apples trees to blossom early. That was followed by frost in April and May, which disrupted the growing cycle. Some states, including Maine, were pummeled by hailstorms in June, causing more damage." - via Boston Globe
