The temperature didn't drop quite as much last night, so we're all hoping our growing season will continue for a few more weeks...

...Just in case it doesn't, picking crews are working hard again today in the Farm Colonies' fields. I'm helping in a different way...

...Specifically, I'm working guard duty for road crews traveling to fruit trees we've mapped out all over the area. Getting plums now. Mmmm.

Today, we're concentrating on fruit trees that will be badly affected if we have a frost. That means saving easy apple orchards for later.

@jamiedurie We've got a few similar tools. They're great at warning of storms. Not so good at predicting the overnight lows, unfortunately.

A zombie nearly got to one of our people when he was up on a ladder picking pears. The zombie was put down, but the picker fell and is hurt.

As soon as his arm is splinted, I'm driving him to Sue's infirmary out at the Colony Farms. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

Sue's infirmary is busy today. A teenage apprentice to the budding blacksmith "guild" was badly burned just before my arrival. #zompocalypse

The guy who fell out of the pear tree today will be fine after his broken arm heals. The burned teenager, however, isn't doing so well.

Scalding hot water splashed on his belly & thighs. The blisters are very bad. Sue's resources for treating burns are limited. #zompocalypse

She says his burns would have sent him to a special burn unit, pre-zombies, but that option isn't possible now. He's in a lot of pain.
