I'm confused. I can understand how you can lose a crop to an early  
frost, but how can you lose a crop to a late frost? Do you need to a  
frost to get the peaches to finish ripening? If not, wouldn't you have  
already harvested the peaches, whether you have a late frost or not?

Stefan, who is obviously not a farmer.
