Storage of commercially produced pasta sauce

I want to store (not can my own) products like Classico Pasta Sauce. It is sold in grocery stores in a glass jar and hot sealed at the factory. There is normally a date on the jar that is a few years out from the present date. Can I go years beyond the "Best if used by" date assunming the seal on the lid is still good and has not popped? I would like to store more than I can use for emergency purposes and cannot rotate through the amount I want to store within the "Best if used by" date. Is there any reason why one cannot go into infinity as long as the lid has not lost its vacuum seal on a glass jar?

Dealing with feral cat poop in the vegetable garden

We bought a house in October with 200 sq. feet of raised beds filled with beautiful, rich, organic soil. Unfortunately, in the time the former tenants moved out and we moved in, the local feral cat colony used the beds as their litter box. In November we removed all the scat we could find, tilled the soil, planted crimson clover, and covered the beds with chicken wire, which has kept the cats of the beds. I know that cat poop is pretty gross stuff, generally and microbiologically. Is it safe to plant our food garden in these beds? Do we need to entirely replace the soil in those beds, or is there an alternative method to prepare them for planting? Thanks so much!

Am I allowed to construct a consumer-grade greenhouse on my property? If so, what, if any, permits or regulations do I need to follow? Would my rights be protected under MRTFA (I grow and sell seeds, plants, and produce at farmer's markets and online)? I live in Livonia, MI on a 1/4 acre corner plot. One side of the greenhouse would meet my garage and another side would meet a neighbors tree line (privacy trees, tall, bushy). THe other two sides would face my lawn.

Water purification for 250 gallon rain catchment tank

We have a community garden in our park and we built late last summer a rain catchment shed that we are going to use to fill a 250 gallon tank. With the rain water that we did catch, we did have some algae start to grow in the tank. What can we use or purchase to purify the water to be able to water our gardens? Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks Sam Brewster - Cavanaugh Park Community Garden, Lansing MI

Agave Weberi - Fungus or Scale and Treatment?

In the last week our beautiful Agave plant has acquired yellow and brown spots on the leaves. After an online search I believe our plant is Agave Weberi and I think it is either scale or fungus. Can you help me identify the problem and suggest the best treatment? I took a photo of the entire plant so you see it is protected by a wall and surrounded by cactus. It is in part shade this time of year. We don't water it. Thanks for your help.

Yuca Hardwood stem propogation

I have obtained several Yuca hardwwod cuttings to begin growing Yuca, or Cassava. (not Yucca) My field that will be used for this crop is very heavy soil and very, very wet through April. I need 8 months of growing season, ending Nov 1, so I need to start right about now. 1. Should I start the cuttings now in this field? 2. or Should I start the cuttings in the greenhouse now and transplant May 1? 3. Do you have a better option? Fred

Zoysia grass vs. St. Augustine for heavy shade

I'm curious as to how well Zoysia grass (in sod form) will hold up in an area that is well shaded vs. St. Augustine sod. This is a small back yard, facing east, with a large fence and two large shade trees blocking early and mid morning sun. During late spring and summer months, as the sun moves south and the west, it will receive a few hours (approx 3) of direct sunlight. But as the day goes on the sun eventually becomes blocked by parts of the south fence line and then the single story house.

Our customer would like to have Zoysia for durability, drought tolerance and lower maintenance, but I am unsure if it will receive enough sunlight and don't want to throw (their) good money after bad.

We've also looked into Turffalo, but the customer doesn't want to invest the time in plugs.

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

I have a horse that has 'weak quarters'.

I have a Quarter Horse gelding with weak quarters on both front legs. He has been shod and now I see cracks going from the back of the heel area moving down towards the toe. How do I treat this issue? Is there a supplement that I can feed to help the hoof wall grow out better? He has been in the pasture during the day, and in the barn at night. Some of the pasture has standing water, should I keep him in a high/dry area where his hoofs do not come in contact with standing water?
Thank you.
