Choosing Lawn Fertilizer

I recently relocated to Torrington, WY from CO Springs where I had a lot of success with a 20-20-10 blend of lawn fertilizer branded as Super Crop. I believe it is produced by a co-op based out of Brighton , CO. I'm tempted to use the same fertilizer in Torrington but have had some people tell me I need a fertilizer that also contains sulfur. I've read that the sulfur is used as an attempt to change the pH balance of a soil but have also read that some WY soils are buffered and resist change in pH level. Is the sulfur a "must have" ingredient in my lawn fertilizer in WY? Thank you for your assistance.

I am planting 4 North Blue and 4 Chippewa blueberries this spring,2yr.old,from Chisago Extension. My soil tested 6.5. Going by your hand out, I am tilling in 6" of acid peat before planting. Should I add elemental sulfur also at the prescribed rate, and do I till it in or top dress it prior to adding mulch on top ? Also can I use pine needles as mulch ?

lawn problems, how do I synchronize?

I have major problems with my lawn (@ 1.5 acres) I have crabgrass, white grubs, and would like to overseed after aerating ( I have an aerator). I am not sure what to do first and to make sure one tx does not counteract another. Can you assist by providing a "plan of attack" with approximation of time frames? THANKS Rick Shaw rickshawde@aol.com

Fruit "leather" jelly repair?

I made a new type of jelly for me (sour cherry) and my jelly turned out leathery. I know what went wrong. My question is: can I place small amounts (if so, how much per pint) of this fruit leather jelly in the jars for a new batch, and have the hot liquid jelly melt the leather and the jelly set to proper consistency?

Late Blight Tomatos

The past several years we have been decimated by late blight. We understand this is a fungal problem, but don't quite know how to deal with it. Our first two years were in the garden were very productive and clean, but the past three years have been nothing but late season blight. This past year we increased the spacing for more air circulation to keep the plants drier, to no avail. We would prefer an organic method of control, but have read conflicting information. I decided to turn to the area experts . . . you. Any information will be sincerely appreciated. Our garden is located in Burrell Township, just outside of Blairsville.

Our apple tree has small holes in it - perhaps millions of them - all around the trunk and limbs - a quarter to half inch apart - and they seem to be even all around the circumference. Our apples haven't been very good on that tree in the past few years. They have been smaller, oddly shaped, wormy insides. We didn't see the holes until last fall. Any suggestions?

growing fig trees in Alburquerque or zone 10

Is there any success with growing fig trees for fruit in the zone 10 area? Will they grow in the open field or does some kind of protection need to be supplied. I have read in my western gardening book that only container growing is possible, moving them inside during the winter. Supposedly they have been growning there in New Mexico for four hundred years, being brought there by the early Spaniards. Do you have any info on that?
