Is there a way to use earthworms and/or bloodworms to handle dog poop on a home level? I am aware that some national parks are using bloodworms in a redesign of the outdoor latrines, and getting food results.

Tomato Plant Problem

I have a tomato plant problem where the plants are healthy until about 8-10” tall then start to go bad. I have attached photos of plant 1 where the problem is progressed and will later send photos of plant 2 where the plant is just starting to turn, both are heirlooms. Plant 1a photo – general view Plant 1b photo – underside of leaf Plant 1c photo – close-up of leaf I live in Thailand but the seeds are from the States (Territorial Seed Company). This has happened on several different plantings; I have tried changing where I plant them to different locations to see if it is a localized problem. I also have tried them in hoop houses. This last planting I have not seen any bugs (other plantings I have battled thrips and white flies). Appreciate any guidance. Thanks & Regards, Brent

Identify this one!?

Found in elizabethton, Tennessee. I kinda like it, the designs are really cool and I decided to keep him so he wouldn’t die off this winter. I’ve held him and he doesn’t seem to have the need to attack, but I’d like to know what he is.

newly planted (in Spring) 12' honey crisp apple tree with watering questions.

We're confused about watering our new 12' honey crisp apple tree (planted in May this year in Boulder).
Should we avoid watering now? What should our watering outlook be for Autumn into Winter?
We plan to mulch soon...8" of leaf mulch? We'll also be wrapping the little tree soon.
We'd appreciate any other advise you may have for us as well.
Thank you !

Vegetable killer

Hello, I learned while ago that Black Walnut produce a chemical that does not let vegetables grow. Is black walnut the only tree/plant that does this or there are others like other nuts or fruites with large seeds like Peach? I do compost all fruit leftovers including seeds and skins and then use the compost for my vegetable garden Please advise.
