black locust tree losing leaves

Our black locust tree's leaves are turning half yellow and falling off, starting about mid July. Is this normal, or is it a sign that the tree is in trouble?

Tomatillo bugs

I have a yellowish green big eating the leaves of my tomatillo plants. They are usually in groups and are slimy when squished. They have totally destroyed two plant. I smashed everything I saw today. Also notice some copper colored eggs on a few of the under side of the leaves. What is the best organic product I can use that will kill and prevent them from coming back?

Cuts on Linden Tree

I recently noticed slits on my tree at most of the areas it bifurcates. Is this something I should be concerned about? I've had the tree for several years & it's been doing well.

Skeleton identification

I found this (rodent?) skeleton in an RV I purchased in Mille Lacs County, and I am curious as to what it is. It is small probably 3" long and fell into the 2 pieces when picked up. Thanks

weeds in strawberries

We just dug up all of our strawberries and have them in water because it was taken over by weeds. How long can they stay there and what can we do to the area to keep any weed plants we missed from coming up before we replant?

Spiny rose gall

I have a 20 year old old fashioned rose bush. I think it has spiny rose gall, there are several nodes on the bush. My research tells me that it shouldn’t be a problem for my mature bush but last year I transplanted some suckers from it and don’t want to stress these new bushes. Is there anything I can do to help protect them?

Excessive Soil Nutrients

Should anything be done about excessive nutrients in vegetable, herb, and berry garden soil? Sometimes the soil test reports that I receive from the test laboratory show that the amounts of nutrients in the soil exceed the needs of the plant ( are more than the optimum amount ). Examples are phosphate, potassium, and metals such as calcium and magnesium. Does this matter? If so, what should be done?
