Re: [nafex] Tom the Apricot

Odd you should ask, as I just beamed this same info to brother Armando (in a
private email.)  We're in Zone 5, directly across Frenchman Bay from Bar
Harbor.  Perhaps it's this marine environment that tips the scales in
our favor when it comes to growing cultivars like Puget Gold, Cox's Orange
Pippin, etc.  Who knows?  Happy to beam the photo to anyone who's interested
(thanks to Doreen for scanning it for me.)
