lemon trees

I would like to know about lemon trees after the several days of freezing temps. Our two trees are about 3 years old. We covered them well during the freezing temps but when we uncovered them many leaves were dead. The inner leaves are still alive. My questions is will they survive and what do we need to do to help them to do so. Thank you.

Inspecting older pressure cookers

I have my mother-in-law's pressure cooker. She used it for canning for many years. It has not been
used in 25 years. I want to start canning, and I read that it would be a good idea to have it inspected before it is used, especially if it has not been used for many years. The article also suggested that the extension service could provide the inspection. If that is correct, where can I bring the cooker for an inspection and how long would it take?

Sick duck

Hi, I have a duck that is ill. She has green excrement and is not eating or drinking. I'm worried she has pasteurella. I've isolated her and started giving her sol met last night and some supportive care by giving her some mealworms in addition to her normal food. This morning she didn't seem any better. I have a second duck and wonder if I shouldn't put them together for company. Is there anything else I can do, or do you have any suggestions?

histoplasmosis & cleaning old barn

I'm getting ready to re-purpose an old dairy bank barn that hasn't been used in several decades. Pigeons have taken roost in the main floor. How big of a risk is there for histoplasmosis? What would be the best way to go about cleaning the main floor (wood floor with light covering of hay and lots of pigeon droppings) and the bottom floor (concrete milking parlor, less bird activity)? I will be housing animals in the bottom floor, as well as hay.

New beekeeper

I recently bought some land on the Western Slope of Colorado near Paoina. I am looking to order bees and am torn on what sub-species I should order, not knowing what would be best for the region. I am leaning toward the Carniloan bee, as it can adjust better for winter time, and seems more disease resistant than the Italian. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

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?

Hello! I am thinking seriously about starting a 4-H group. I have a handful of nieces that I would like to involve. My question is: Do all members have to live in the same county or can they reside in different counties but the club itself is located in one specific county? Thank you!
