a high of 29

This is one of the last days below freezing in the foreseeable forecast. I hope I am able to take advantage of the weather and be more productive outdoors.

In other news, I have finally figured out how to lay out the orchard. This also means that I will not be purchasing another apple tree this year. I did spend a bit more coin than I intended on seeds, but I am trying to establish a healthy orchard and avoid spraying the trees.

The fig, persimmon, and plum tree will be placed along one fence as a windbreak and to try to offer some privacy. The remainder will be placed west of the garden, close-ish to the chicken coop. Hopefully the chickens will eat bugs and help prevent pests.
