[Today’s run: State Farm – 3.6 miles]

I’ve been thinking about trying to plant a tree in our front yard. We have some trees out there, including some crab apples that I think are mostly a waste of space. I would like something stately right in the middle that would eventually be big enough to provide shade.

Our neighbor has a tall tree that looks really nice. A few weeks ago it started dropping plum-like fruit. Then when we had a sharp freeze it decided to drop all of it’s leaves. I took a picture of the leaves and looked it up on the internet. Turns out it is a Ginko tree.

I saved some of the fruit in hopes I may be able to get it to sprout.
