how to sell morel mushrooms?

I have found 18 pounds of morel mushrooms and would love to be able to sell them for a little extra cash. The certification classes were last month. If I knew I was going to find this many morels and had been aware of the class I probably would have become certified! Is there a way to find someone else who can certify my morels so that I can legally sell them? And do I have to purchase some kind of permit from the city of Ames to be able to sell them? Is there possibly a one day Farmer's Market seller's fee?? Thanks for the information! Mike

Managing lichen or something growing in garden beds

What is this and how do I get rid of it? It doesn't look like moss or the typical gray lichen that grows on trees. I have it in a bed that is fairly wet but also in an open area on a slope that is very dry. Thanks.

lamb's quarters/quinoa disease

Hi, I have planted quinoa in my garden this year. It is coming down with the same spots that its close relative, lamb's quarters, sometimes develop in my yard. Since I would like to consume the leaves of these plants, I'd like to know if you've ever seen these spots. From my observations last year: These spots range in color from true purple to magenta. They appear to spread by proximity from one plant to another. There is no observable insect, egg, larvae, or any other creature. Each purple spot results in a slight curvature of the leaf, the top becomes convex and the bottom becomes concave. The plant does not show distress until fairly advanced stages, when the leaves overall start to show inward curling. The picture is copied from the internet rather than taken directly from my yard, since my camera is out of commission; but it is clearly and undisputably the same condition. I'm hoping you will have ideas for "diagnosis" and treatment. Thanks!

Is Orchard grass a good hay crop

I am a retired annual ryegrass seed farmer in the Willamette Valley. I have several head of goats and sheep. I want to put my former grass seed field (20 acres) into pasture that I can cut/bale once in the spring then pasture it the rest of the year. Is Orchard grass a good crop to consider for both pasture and for hay? If not can you advise a better crop.

All of the above-ground growth on our crepe myrtles seems to have died. How...

All of the above-ground growth on our crepe myrtles seems to have died. How can we tell if they are still salvageable? 2 are 3 years old and 1 is 1 year old. The growth on the two older plants is about 8 feet tall, the other about 2 feet. They have bloomed in the past. Now, all we have is a little growth at the bottom of the trees. All are n full sun, although one of the bigger ones gets some shade in the late afternoon. There is o evidence of animal damage - or for that matter, any damage. they are simply not leafing out. If they are dead, should we try to plant new ones in the fall or is it just too cold here to try again?

Plants that can tolerate intense reflected sunlight?

Our backyard faces southeast and receives full sun. We have a lot of windows in back that reflect sunlight, killing plants and grass and leaving long angled streaks of dead lawn in late spring and summer. Needless to say it is really ugly. Irrigation would be too expensive and time consuming, so I would like to remove the dead grass from this area and create a heat tolerant garden. But I'm not sure there's anything out there that can survive the intense reflected light. Any thoughts? We are in zone 7b Georgia.
Thanks!

Hello -- I have three beautiful climbing rose bushes, they're about 5-6 years old. Healthy. All three were planted at the same time, and this past fall I noticed that all three had developed an offshoot a good two feet away from the base plant. Those offshoots are developing nicely, but I don't know what to do with them. They're too far from the base plant to incorporate into the trellis. If I dig in and just cut that out, will I harm the base plant? (I love the base plants and want to treat them with TLC). Are these offshoots baby plants that I should try to remove and plant elsewhere? Or should I just leave it all intact and let nature be what it is? Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.
