Do you have any recommendation for feed to get my bull ready for the bull evaluation? Do you suggest early weaning from mother or keep the bull on his mother and supplement? What do you recommend for feeding? Last year our bull didn't gain enough to get in so I am trying to get one ready this year. Jill Bauman Bauman Farm American British White Cattle

In the past three or four days I have noticed these strange leaf markings on the lower leaves of my tomato plants. The upper parts of the plants are still healthy and they are starting to grow little green tomatoes. The plants are in full sun and were started from seed in late February, planted outdoors on April 20. I gave some of my plants to a church garden, those plants are not exhibiting the same problem. Last year's tomato plants had their leaves turn brown and fall off the plant, so that by the end of summer the plants were all stems and some fruit, with very few leaves. I hope this is not the same problem starting over again.
I noticed something on the elm trees in our yard that looked like strange bugs. However, they didn't move or come off really. Then I thought maybe some sort of insect eggs. I posted a picture on my facebook page and a few people said it was a fungus; scale fungus? We've lived in this home for 14 years and have never seen anything like it, or any fungi for that matter.
What should we be doing, anything?

My tomato plants are still trhe same size as when I planted them a month ago. Why is this? They were about 6 inches in high when planted. they are still the same.
They have been fertalized with miracle grow every ten days. Watered as normal
I've been growing tomatoes for 25 years and never had this problem.
I really didn't turn over the soil as in years past, or add any manure.
Could this be the problem? One plant is about 2 feet high. One out of 6.
They just haven't grown any in size. What do you think?

We have noticed the attached fungus within the past 3 weeks at the base of our tree. If I try to kick it, it is hard as a rock. Do you know what this is, and do I need to cut it out so as not to further damage the tree? Thanks.

Just-sprouted snap beans. The bean is eaten off before it provides its energy to the new leaf pair. We have squirrels, rabbits and birds - and maybe voles as well. HISTORY: repeated planting of seeds in the same row is producing a few plants but even some lima beans are being eaten before the bean has exhausted itself in leaf production. Is one of the (named above) three animals guilty of this great bean robbery? the plant is developed enough Once this robber ceases his destructive way.

I discovered this tiny little colorful creature on our lantana -- that seems to be his plant of choice, and I believe he's responsible for the small holes in some of the leaves. He looks like a member of the grasshopper family but I can't find him on the internet. He's between 1/4 and 1/2" long with a black body w/white stripes (which look yellow in sunlight) and red legs. Attached is a photo I took. Thanks!
I have a Colorado Blue Spruce that is about 11 years old and it lost a lot of needles this spring. I gave it a dose of Bayers Tree and Shrub, but it has only gotten a small amount of new growth. I wanted to see if there was anything else that I should be doing for it. Attached are some pictures. It is about 7 ft tall and get irrigation water on a regular basis during the spring, summer and fall

We have a Scarlet Sentinel (Hard Maple)That was Transplanted from a Lawn & Garden center on October 19,2012. It is About 14-16 ft tall. At the time of planting most all the leaves had dropped for the winter, so we were anxious to see it leaf out this spring. Alas, it only leafed out half way up. The bare brances that formed the shape were all dead. I contacted the Lanscaping Center and the guy went over and just cut off all the towering branches off. So now we have a 6-7ft pole with a Bush on top. The guy said it would shape out in a couple years (after the warrenty is over) my comment. Why were they Dead branches on the top half. Any advice or help would be appreciated Art

Acer palmatum dissectum-lace-leaf Japanese Red Maple ~ 14 years old 8 ft wide, 5 ft tall Problem first noted a few days ago In full to part sun I noticed that the color is very pale and leaves are relatively droopy. It looks sickly. No pestcides or fertilizers applied. Drainage has been fine. Never had a problem. In June, I applied bulk black mulch and soil. I have always received compliments as it is a striking tree. Can you determine if something is wrong with my tree? We have had a lot of rain and wind. Could that be the problem? Should I treat it? If so, how? Thank you.
