I would like to can caramelized onions. I have found two recipes online, one using butter and one using olive oil. For health reasons I would want to use the olive oil recipe:
I have a pressure cooker that has only 1 (15 lb.) setting, and live in Houston where elevation is minimal (!). I would be using half-pint jars. This is a regular Fagor pressure cooker purchased in 2011, but not specifically a canner, so that might be another issue.
Can you help me assess how/whether I should use this recipe, especially as regards canning time with 15 lbs PSI? If you advise against using the recipe, can you direct me to another more reliable recipe? I have checked the Ball Book and the USDA guide and they say nothing about canning onions.
I know there are many safe onion relish recipes but I am not as interested in making a sweet-sour product as I am in having caramelized onions on hand.
Thanks for your advice!

It wasn't until it happened again this year that I remembered it happened last year, too. I planted a peach tree in Spring 2011. Leafs out great in the spring at first and then about a third of the leaves turn yellow and fall off. Pretty sure overwatering is my problem there, and I should be able to fix that okay. My problem this year is that the leaves that remain look like they will not last the summer - they just look very tired and faded - and there is a bunch of fruit trying to grow. I don't know what to do...is there a fertilizer? Should I pinch off the fruit so the tree can focus on staying alive?

I have a hemlock that is about 20yrs old and 30ft tall. We treated it for wooly adelgids last spring with Bayer Advanced(Imidacloprid) which seems to have worked. We don't see the same thing again this spring but as the cones have started to develop several of them have become covered in a orange powdery substance. Wondering what this is.

How can you safely rid a dock or marina on Macatawa Lake of spiders. The swallows help but they are everywhere. Are there water and environmentally safe products?
I have two producers who want to make their own "certified organic" chicken feed. One has layers; the other has broilers; both want to stay away from soy and things like blood meal. They each have access to a tub grinder/mixer, so making 1 to 2 tons at a time is viable. I need some help with recipes based on ingredients available in SC.
I have a autumn blaze maple with small white bugs. they have turned all the leaves on some large branches black and dead. Will those branches leaf out next year or should they be cut? If they should be cut, what time of the year is best. Also, how do I get rid of the bugs?
Hello. Our nieghbor had catepillars that killed her pine tree 2 years ago. Now they've moved to our large pine trees and they will also die. Is there a way to stop the spread. we have several more pine trees on our lot and many more in the neighborhood. Thank you - Joy (Blurry) photo attached.

We have just moved into a new home. We have little to no grass and what grass we do have is crab grass. The soil is like sand and weeds are extreamly easy to remove from dry soil. It seems as if the last two yrs. the yard was only watered by rain or little irrigation water. What would I need to to to help the soil condition to promote grass growth and benefit our 8 fruit trees? We have yet to figure out what type of fruit trees they are. We are thinking a variety of apple, peach, plum and possibly apricot (not sure I spelled that right). By the way we have no clue what we are doing and have never had this situation before.
Hi, I live in Marion and bought what I remember as a sugar maple but now believe is a red maple (please see pictures). Last summer we experienced wilt (hopefully not verticullum) on several branches. Since I just started learning about this, I didn't prune them out until just today as they didn't grow back in this year. The main thing I'm concerned about now is the bark. There are some holes that look like perhaps I had borers but I see no active ones. Is there some other reason we would be having such problems? Please Help!

Just planted a patmore ash. Wondering what to treat it with to combat ash-lilac borer. The tree guy said to use some kind of crystals but we can't find any in Fort Collins CO). What do you suggest?
What is this plant? (Is it a weed?)
Found it! It's a wooly mullein (or other type of mullein). It's in the Invasive Plants Guide by the Kaufmans,.
Is it a weed, if we like it where it is?
What is this plant growing out of the lemon balm. Hope this photo is better than last ones.
I have a home in Columbia, Utah up against the Book Cliffs. I am at 6200 feet and am interested in planting a couple of trees that will grow fast. One to the south of my house needs to be not too tall for possible solar later and it's position is 20' away from the house....that is the only place it can go. The other is to shade a patio and will be on the east side of the house. Size is not so important but would like a tree you can sit under, with a canopy. Thanks

Last year the leaves on one of my trees started turning yellow (i am not sure species also), see picture below. Our lawn service said it looked iron deficient, so we have been treating it with Iron and Super Thrive, as well as the tree spikes we always used. However, this year it came back equally yellow. I am not sure the type of tree, but it is at least 15 years old and appears otherwise healthy. Can anyone assist with potential diagnosis / treatment?
