It says here that the Sun produces 5×10²³HP; that's about 3.7×10²⁶W, of which 10¹⁵W strikes the Earth. I think.

Good point. As a general rule of thumb, the smaller the better.

You don't want a variety of apple; you usually need at least two trees so the bees can pollinate them from each other. I recommend you get trees fruiting at different times, but that may require more trees to ensure pollination.

True. And if I tolerate them, they cease to be weeds.

Goldenrod is a weed. So is teasel (Dipsacus follonum). But I tolerate them both in the garden. Lot of them.

Welcome to the garden
What sort of goldenrod is it? Is it Solidago candadensis? That grows like weeds in my garden. But it is a very useful plant in August and the first half of September.
