Is there a legume that is resistant to the fungus/mold that causes the slaframine poisoning (slobbers) in horses? I am seeding a pasture into a hayfield and trying to get a legume that can be grazed by horses and goats and also put the nitrogen back into the soil for the tall fescue and the orchard grass.

Please tell me this is a wood roach.

Hi, I found this little guy behind a basket on a china hutch. When I shined the light on him, he seemed un-enthused and was nice enough to pose for the shot. We live on a wooded lot, but my son has also moved back in and is not as thorough as I would like about cleaning up "snacks" in his room. I'm going to be breathing into a paper bag until I feel certain it is a wood roach. Please advise so I can determine whom to kick out...the bug out...or my son (only kidding). Thank you.

Chill hours for peaches, plums and pears grown in Rosebud, Texas

Please tell me what the chill hours are for Rosebud, Texas 76570. Also, which peach, plum and pear varieties will do well in this area. I have determined that "Lovell" or "Halford" root stock will be best for the alkaline clay soils in this area. Will addition of iron and zinc help the peaches and plums grow better? What is a general application rate?.
What is a good fertilizer for old growth pecan trees to be applied to alkaline clay soil?

Getting seeds?

Hi there! I recently moved to Oregon and would love to start gardening (both edible and decorative). In starting up my plants, I want to make sure that I get seeds that support local farmers. Is there anywhere I can look for organic and local seeds? I really would like to avoid supporting big name companies like Monsanto.

rot on aspen tree

I have 3 aspen trees I planted in the spring of 2011. They have been doing great, even new ones coming up this year for the first time. About a month ago I noticed the new one developing a black 'rot' on the leaves.(photos attached) Shortly after, the big one started getting it. This one also is hugely tilting for the first time. It gets pretty strong NW winds and with the water this year, it makes sense. I have 2 questions: Should I stake the tree for support? What is the rot and what can I do about it?

arborvitae

One variety of pyramidal arborvitae is mostly brown. There are many such affected plants in the neighborhood. Should I cut it down or will it recover--there is some green intermixed.
A globe variety seems unaffected.
Thanks.
