PAW PAW, MI (WHTC) - Local agricultural officials are hoping that this morning’s freeze warning for the Lakeshore and much of southern Michigan won’t have an adverse effect on crops, especially apples. Most of the state’s fruit crops were destroyed last year due to an early thaw followed by a late freeze, but there were hopes that this year’s wet, cool spring could lead to a bumper harvest. Mark Longstroth, the small fruit educator of the MSU Extension Office in Paw Paw believes that fears of widespread damage from this freeze may be unfounded, as weather conditions were expected to improve later today.
