correct incubation humidity level

Hello, We have started to raise peacocks. We have a question that no one seems to have an answer to...We live at 6100 feet in Auburn, Wyoming(near afton in star valley)...We are trying to figure out what humidity reading we need to keep our eggs at in the incubator? For peacocks eggs we have been told to keep the temp. at 99.5 degrees which it has been. The humidity on a web bulb is supposed to be 83-85%....right now the reading on the web bulb is reading 73 degrees. What we need to know from someone at your college is at 6100 feet in dry humidity, does the humidity in a incubator need to be higher or lower? Some say we maybe roasting the eggs, others say it's fine, others say the chicks will drown in the egg at that humidity, but no one seems to know any reasonable information for high altitude incubating of fowl. If you could help we would really appreciate any information. Thank you, Mel & Jenny Broadhead 94 Worton Lane Auburn, WY. 93111 307-886-5239 m2d@svwy.net

I have a red delicious apple tree grown from seed. It is currently about 9 years old. This will be its second year bearing fruit; however, the fruit is much smaller (about golf ball sized) than I expected. Two years ago I purchased and planted a gala about 30' away. There is also a crab apple tree about 75' away. The Gala bore fruit (several) this year that are about 15% larger than the fruit on the red delicious. How large should the red delicious apples be at this point in the season? Thanks for your help.

I live in Leisure World. We have a large area setaside for garden plots. I have noticed over several years that tomatoes, all varieties across the entire garden area, the leaves starting at the bottom turn yellow and die. Indeterminate plants stop baring in late August or early September. Some plants are in raised beds others are not. Some mulched others not. Just about every variety of tomatoes know to man is grown in just about every possible manner and the results are uniformally the same. We have an unlimited supply of ground leaf mulch available. I have diagnosed the problem as wilt or blite. How do we get rid of it?

Unidentified pest is eating my rose

A caterpillar that looks like a dinosaur is eating the leaves of my Belindas Dream. The caterpillar is about one inch long. It has a small brown head, a green neck, a brown body with a two-forked tail. I tried cutting off the stems that I saw it on, but now it's on others. What is it and how do I get rid of it before it spreads to other bushes?

Food Preservation

Our foods specialist is out for the day. A consumer picked a couple buckets fresh green beans from her garden and they have an odor which she suspects from an animal running through her garden. What would she use to get rid of the odor before canning them? Vinegar? She suggested bleach but I'm hesitant to use that.

I just received back the soil test report. It probably isn't real accurate as I only sent in two samples. The report list my organic matter at 6.5, phosphorous at 100 plus and the potassium at 300 plus. This is a new garden just started this year so I did add horse manure and compost but didn't think I added that much, but must have to get that number. I have planted rasberries 3 times, out of 15 raspberry plants 2 did set new chutes the other slowly died. Some rasberries are still living but have not grown or thrown any new chutes. The leaves curl, there is some red in the leaves and then most die off. The strawberries are about the same. They will slowly die off where the leaves just turn brown and crunchy and then die. I planted several weeks some strawberries that were in pots and they are alive but they to have red on the leaves. Does the overdose of compost do that or is that to much rasberries and strawberries for over 30 years and have never had these issues. I might add nothing previous had been done to the soil for 45 years and was a very tall grass growing where the garden was. The soil underneath is rather wet and clumpy so I did add a little sand. I am going to be sending in another soil test with more soil locations than the first. What can I do to resolve this issue? Sorry I am rambling Thank you Nancy

I have several Hoogendorn Holly bushes that were planted in front of my house last spring, 2013. One of them began to show brown sections early this season. Now there are a few others that have, all of a sudden started turning brown, even though, until now they have been growing and, seemingly, prospering. I am attaching pictures for you to evaluate. This first one is of the bush that started gradually showing brown spots this spring. I would appreciate your feedback. These bushes are in full sun and were planted after consultation with a landscaper, who evaluated the soil and the area before recommending that we plant them.
