Peach tree disease or pest

The two photos below show a gelatinous mass that has developed at the base of one of my two peach trees. It started last year and I cleaned it up, dug up and removed the soil around the base of the tree. I then put gravel all around the base of the tree to discourage development of larvae in the soil. The tree produced a huge amount of peaches as usual which I thinned out but nearly all were infected with what I think is plum curculio. The gelatinous mass has recently reappeared at the base of the tree. What is this? Is it related to the plum curculio infestation? How do I get rid of it?

Lawn Care Reseeding

I was told the best time to reseed bare spots is late September. Well, I missed that opportunity and wondering if I can reseed the bare spots this week of March 15 to March 21. or should I wait for warmer weather in April or May. Now the ground is moist and the snow has just about disappeared on the lawn. Thank ou kindly for advice.

I am considering skipping planting my glads this spring. I would like to save them for planting the following year. I currently store them in a cool room in my basement. Will this work, or do they have to be planted every growing season?

Possible arsenic/toxins in garden soil surrounded by landscape timbers

We have had these timbers surrounding our garden for 18 years. We are just now concerned about the possibility of there being arsenic or other toxins in our soil because of this. How can we have our soil tested to make sure our vegetables will not be toxic? Are there any do it yourself kits available? Are there any local companies that would come out and test it for us for a reasonable cost?
