I'm hoping you can help me identify this insect. It's quite small (see dime in photograph for reference), flies, and (I am told) bites humans, leaving little red marks. I've done a bit of Google image searching, but with no luck. Thanks!

freeze damage to a golden locust tree

We had a hard frost/freeze a couple of weeks ago. Our golden locust trees were fully leafed out. Now the leaves are brown and crispy. Will the tree survive? Will it try and leaf out again this spring/summer? The same has happened to our Japanese Maple tree. Any encouraging news for us? Thank you, Susan

Fruit trees and grapevines

We recently moved to southeast Albemarle County, and are interested in planting apple, fig, pear and peach trees. Do you have guides as to best varieties and planting methods for these items, for this locality? We also have a solo grapevine that is growing, but something has eaten all the little buds that we assume would have been grapes. Any articles that would help us nourish and protect the grapevine? Thank you.

I have a Dogwood that's 22+ years old. This year the blossoms curled after the tree bloomed...see photo. I've never seen that on this tree on any others on my street. The tree grew up in the semi-shade of another tree which was removed in Feb 2011 (against my wishes) and the tree gets full sun since then. Only a few blossoms did not curl up like this. There are some clusters of leaves with brown tips but the tree does not appear to be getting 'worse'. The tree is in a small yard. I'd very much appreciate any information you have on this, and any suggestions you have about what I can do to help the tree. I can send additional photos if that would help. Thank you.

fresh, local and "To Go"

Our family operates a gastopub in Florence, OR. We have made serving fresh, local and made from scratch the driving force behind the menu offerings. We make several salad dressings & a very popular house made ketchup. We are trying to determine if it would be possible & practical to sell these items in jars or other containers if customers would like to use them at home. Do we need special permits, or is there a way we go about it that wouldn't require permits? We would probably branch out and do canned jams etc, all made in-house. Thanks for your help!

Green Ash Struggling

I have a Green Ash that is about 18 years old. During the past two years it has produced a lot of seed and struggled with leaf production. I watered the tree during this past winter.
I am just now getting leaf production however branches are green when scratched. It appears that the first buds froze off during the late spring freeze. Any suggestions for making this tree healthier?
