What's Wrong With My Pear Tree?

A few people on my street in Queens NYC have pear trees and they all seem to have the same problem. After the leaves emerged this year, every leaf (on all the trees) developed a yellow spot with a brown spot in the middle of it. And now I notice the underside of each leaf has something growing on it. See attached photos. What's wrong with our trees? And, is there anything we can do to fix it? thanks Frank Progl

Daffodil bulbs

I have had daffodil bulbs in a plot for many, many years and they have always come up in the spring and bloomed beautifully that is until this year. Not a single one bloomed this year. Is there a reason? Will they possibly bloom next year? The leaves were lovely, just no blossoms.

Making Jam

I made some jam with plums and sure-jell following the recipe exact. It did not set and works great for waffle, pancakes or ice cream, but I'd prefer to use as jam/jelly. Can I open the jars, reheat it all and add more sure jell or is that not safe to do?

Prevent mosquitos under deck?

We installed a rubber membrane under our deck to prevent water from getting under a bedroom. It's not perfectly smooth, and rain puddles and does not dry. Before we put the deck back on, we'd like to know if adding gravel or sand would help. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Holy Moley

We have a major problem with moles tunneling through the yard. What steps should we take this fall to minimize their impact next year? Would an application of milky spore really work?

processing quince jam

I made 3 jars of quince jam 2 days ago. Sitting on the counter after being filled, they "popped" and the lids are down. Today I want to make more jam and will have enough to fill my canner to process. Can I safely add those 3 jars. I would add them as the water heats up, and plan to process in a rolling boil for 10 minutes. They are all 1/2 pint jars. Thank you.

Raining from my tree

I have a black gum tree that is pouring water from the upper branches. It has been literally raining from this tree for the last week. You can see the drops falling from the leaves and branches if you look up, like after a heavy rain has stopped. The "rain" is not sticky or thick it doesn't taste like anything and it doesn't leave a residue. If you stand under this tree for more than 10 minutes you would be wet. Some people have said it is aphids but this is a lot of "water" that has the area around the tree soaked and my car wet (like it just rained) everyday. Seems to happen more during the day than at night. The tree is around 60 feet tall.

Identify a strange weed

I need help to identify & eradicate a weed that appeared in my Coastal Bermuda pasture this summer. I have some excellent pictures If someone will share their email will be glad to attach them.

It spread more rapidly than anything I've experienced. The wet summer probably contributed to its rapid spread & it can be airborne by wind.

I want to learn its earliest germination date so I can use a pre-emergent. However. I may need to use a broadleaf herbicide.

If I don't get ahead of it next spring I believe it will dominate my grass.
