Hello. My lawn has gotten progressively worse over the past few years, with a brownish/reddish weed spreading in spots over at least half of my 2 acres. I have used pre-emergent weed kill in the spring and tried to fertilize for grass growth in late fall, but I can't stop it from spreading. Do you recognize this weed? Do you have any ideas of how to kill it? I have provided 4 different pictures. Thank you for your help!

About 20- 25 years ago OSU Extension put out a collection of bar graphs that showed food's nutritional value by individual vitamins, minerals and calories. Any chance those are still in production and where can I get a set?

sand burr infestation

My ten acre place near Iola has a bad sand burr infestation. I am wondering what steps I should take to try to rid myself of them. We had dirtwork done to build our home and now the ground is covered in them.

Brown Recluse Spider

I am looking for information regarding Brown Recluse Spiders in Virginia. I have read Eric Day's article on Wolf Spiders which indicate that Brown Recluse and Black Widow are the only dangerous spiders in Virginia. I really need to try to gather more information regarding this if possible. Thank you!

Do willow branches help when starting cuttings?

I heard that putting in a willow branch when starting plants from cuttings really helps them? If so, where do I find willows in the Hillsboro - Beaverton area?

Almond growing

Several years ago I bought a couple Almond trees. They did fine and last year I had some production. This year is even better. However, many of the shells are so thick and tough that they are impossible to crack And often the nut isn't fully formed. Do you think this is because the trees are still so young or maybe my soil or climate are not conducive to full maturation of 'fruit'? I am so excited about these trees, but disappointed in the the harvest management.
