around here they want $23.25 per gallon for ethanol-free gasoline: https://www.lowes.com/search?searchTerm=trufuel
I would gladly pay $4 to avoid cleaning carburetors, but $23.25 is absurd

Spend an full day cleaning and 'getting it right', so it would not surge or stumble. Get nasty carcinogens all over me, waste a day, and sometimes have to go back and do it again. Then I discovered for about the same money I could order a new carb online and slap it on. Problem solved.

Is there anything "Generally" i can do to limit/deter or protect from disease, fungus and/or insects....either to the soil before i plant? or after the trees have been planted?

Or have lots of grow lights. The shade also cuts down on the passive solar element so it won't collect as much heat as it could.

It's also too bad that the old barn is completely gone. Often having a structure to "repair" or "remodel" is looked at differently than "new construction". Not sure if just a foundation counts.
You could also take a step North, and put the greenhouse above the wall (mostly) and have the space below the wall be the cold sink. Maybe with a solid roof (or like a berm shed) it cold double as a root cellar?
The wall would be in the center of the structure, sort of a split-level thing, with a narrow opening over the top of the wall joining the two spaces.
