can you share your gardening knowledge

hi, my name is Pennie Eisenbeis and I am the ForeverWell Coordinator at the Rochester YMCA. I provide experiences for our Senior population. I would love to have a Master Gardener come speak to us sometime this spring. I realize that it is short notice, but If someone could come Monday April 22 Earth Day and give a presentation ( topic of choice) that would be wonderful! this group is very social and like to hang out and sip coffee and chat every morning of the week. between 8-10 is the best time to reach them. they are still very active members of the community and doing a great thing by being active YMCA members. if 4/22 will not work, then I am open to any other day. please contact me. thank you for your time

The Golden Hawk is Girthy and estimated to be 25" and likes the pine trees. Please identify if you can and pass along any added info you might have in regards to the hawk species. She believes both of these hawks are juvenile hawks. Thank You

Shortly after moving to our new townhouse this tree started making a constant mess. I hate to cut it out but the almost daily sweeping and cleaning up is to much for us. It drops 100s of berries a day even throughout the winter. This is what they look like now. Is there anything that can be done?

Wood she’s in my garden

I’m in Tucson AZ. I burn mesquite firewood in the winter which has a lot of ash. My soil is just about pure sand,a bit on the alkaline side. I want to get some benefit from the ash, do I dare put it on my garden or mix it in my big cow manure composting piles?

Lime and soil amendments

I recently started a new raised garden. Purchased organic soil, manure, coconut coir, azomite rock dust and fish emulsion. I had tested my organic soil and it was on the acidic side so purchased dehydrated lime. I added everything together at once! I should have researched beforehand but am new to this and didn’t even think adding lime with the amendments could be harmful. I am growing seeds indoor and will be transplanting in the next 4-5 weeks. Will I kill my plants? Please help

Fruit Trees - "Backyard Orchard Culture"


I am looking to start a backyard garden with a couple fruit trees. I’m pretty new to this, so please forgive me if my questions seem basic – I want to learn as much as I can so I don’t mess up!

I’ve read about the space requirements for trees, and honestly, I’m pushing it kinda close – I think I might be able to fit two or maybe three dwarf trees (I don’t have a ton of room with full sun). I do, however, want to maximize space and variety (ideally, I’d like a couple varieties of apples, and maybe cherries and pears if I could fit them in). I recently ran across a few articles on “Backyard Orchard Culture” - and . Before I invest a lot of time and money, I was hoping to get some input from you (after all, if this fails, it’s a three to four year process to start over again.

1. Will this method work?

2. What type of yields should I expect? (I know it says smaller, but I’m pretty unfamiliar with what a standard yield might be).

3. Would you recommend this type of system? Like I said, if it works, I’d love to have a several varieties of each fruit rather than just one or two – would you recommend trying this, or should I just stick to one or two? Please let me know your thoughts.

How to kill toxoplasma gondii cysts in raised bed soil

We just discovered that a feral cat used our 4'Wx8'Lx2'D raised beds for a litter box at least eight times over the winter. What can we do make the beds safe for planting vegetables this year? (We have a toddler who would be using the boxes as well.) For example, we were planning to remove and replace the top 12" of soil, at least.

EDIT: Schizophrenia runs in our immediate family, so it is EXTREMELY important to us that we eradicate any cysts.

A few arborvitae hedges have died. Will the others follow?

A few of our arborvitae hedges died. They were next to each other. There were noticeable small holes, a few millimeters wide, in the trunk. Do you know what the cause might be and are the rest doomed or is there something to do to prevent it happening to the others?

Weeding my raspberry patch

I have a productive raspberry patch where the weeds are fighting for space. There is an abundance of wild garlic/onions(?) that are gaining a foothold. Actually, they are gaining a foothold in my lawn as well. What is the best way for me to rid the raspberry patch of this onion/garlic infestation please? Is this simply going to be a get down on hands and knees and dig up this invader scenario, or is there another way? Also I would like to get rid of all the other weeds that are competing for the nutrients in this space. Thank you for any assistance.
