Is my soil dangerous?

Hello, I am interested in creating a garden. The problem is that my husband treated the only suitable area in our yard with ant killer. Is it dangerous to plant our garden in soil treated with ant killer? If I do a raised bed would this be a viable Solution? Could I do the raised bed on top of the treated soil? And if I do how deep do the beds need to be so that the plants do not root in that treated soil?

Help with my Colorado Rock garden

I'm designing a rock garden in the front of the house on the north side where there is never sun. Are there any drought tolerant shade loving ground covers? I guess I will want a variety of sizes, colors and textures if anything is available. Thanks.

How to get rid of taranula wasps without poisoning my ranch

We have a ranch in Southeastern Colorado. We bought it 8 years ago. We started having one or two tarantulas wasps a year about 5 years ago. Last year we had so many we were afraid to let the little kids outside. What can we do this winter to head off their return? I have an organic ranch and would also prefer not to kill off all the other bees with a overall spray. Can you recomment something?

Three-bin outdoor compost bin for a small farm or garden

I am looking for directions and a supply list for a three-bin wooden outdoor three-sided compost bin that would fit on an 8 x 8 x 8 space with a cover for this climate. I oversee a large learning garden at PCC Rock Creek, and we have no place to put our green waste on site. Our campus farmer can turn it with his tractor/tiller. I have seen some for horse operations and that might do.

Restoring a weed-ridden lawn

We purchased a new home last summer. When we first saw the home, the lawn in the back yard was decent and looked to have healthy grass. There was a long period between when we saw the house and when we moved in; by the time we settled in in August, the neglected yard had been overrun with a smattering of knee-waist high broadleaf weeds. How should we start getting rid of these weeds and restoring the lawn? Do we need to reseed?

Are there resources to assist our small day-care center as we get established?

I have a small day-care center in Calvert, Alabama. Our center is fairly new, and we assumed that we would have more support from our neighboring business (ThyssenKrupp), which had promised to hire locals for their new plant. I saw an opportunity to start a much-needed day care in our area. There was essentially nowhere to leave small children so that parents could go to work. Needless to say, the hiring process was not what we had been told. Our center is licensed for 76 children. We currently have only 40 enrolled, and most of the clients are on a subsidy. Our center is struggling to remain a source of positive infrastructure. Is there any help or grant opportunities to assist with some of our expenses until we get up and going?

Hello, we live in Avon Lake on a lot with some challenges for a lawn. We have a company do the fertilizing. However, our lawn is filled with chickweed, moss and lots of other small weeds. I think this is due to two things. Most of our lawn gets little sun due to multiple huge oak trees and shag bark hickory trees. Just the very front gets sun (and it gets burned out sometimes). I am thinking I need a soil test and will have to replant a lot of grass. Any ideas would be very welcome. If OSU does soil tests or has kits, please let me know. Thanks for any ideas.

How can I tell when a hen is not laying anymore?

What is the best way to tell whether a hen is not laying anymore? During early summer, I tried culling hens with brighter yellow legs, and I left the ones with white legs. But my egg production went way down. The "fingers between the pelvic bones" method yielded mixed results, and all the hens seemed to be about the same. Our poultry butcher said to wear a latex glove and insert a finger into the vent. If only one finger fits, the hen is not laying eggs. If two fingers fit, the hen is laying eggs. We have heritage hens, and there are some that are still laying well at 4 years, so I do not want to do a blanket slaughter of all hens of a certain age rather than checking individually. If some of the older hens are laying well, I want those genetics in my flock to pass on to the chicks. Thank you! We have Delaware chickens.
