It is everywhere you look around West Michigan. The snow is an inconvenience, it is a mess. But it is also a threat to the farmers who put fruits and vegetables on your family's table. Growers say there is definitely going to be some damage to the fruit crops, but they don't know how much. The good news is that it won't be as bad as some other states. Down south, some of the fruit crops like peaches and apples are wiped out.

In Kent City, Nels Nyblad grows apples, peaches, plums, apricots and cherries. As far as the weather goes, he says, "I've never seen anything like it." Nyblad is trying to stay positive, but admits that the weird weather is a concern. He's been pulling branches from his trees every day to see if they've been damaged. Some of them are already budding. "They thought it was spring and it turned winter on us again", says Nyblad.

It's that warm spell a few weeks ago and the recent freeze that caused the problems. When the trees got buds and opened up, they were exposed to the cold. Nyblad says "The earliest flowering fruits have been damaged-apricots, plums." Nyblad also expects a smaller crop of peaches. "We may not be able to send semi loads full of them. Suppliers may be limited, but they should be good."

What does seem to be doing okay so far is the apples. It's Michigan's biggest fruit crop. At Nyblad Orchards they are still processing last year's bumper crop.

Meantime, over at Robinette Orchards in Grand Rapids, John Robinette says his apples should be good. He says it's the cherries that could be damaged. "We pulled some buds, we did find that they had frozen. We don't know percentage. We do know there will be some loss", says Robinette.

At this point, growers are taking it one day at a time. Of course they would like better weather, but even though there is snow on the ground in April, they still have hope. Nyblad says," Farmers are always at the mercy of the weather. This is just another weather event that we'll live through."
