How should I fertilize tomatoes?

Last year I fertilized my tomatoes and only got moderate results. I am wondering if I should fertilize this year or not. I put horse manure and bone meal on the plot that I grow tomatoes. I also have rhubarb and raspberries with horse manure. I had an abundant amount of raspberries on the canes. The rhubarb was pretty good too. I was a little disappointed with the results of the tomatoes.

apple tree pest questions

I had to cut down a young Braeburn because of borer damage. I wondered a few things. 1) can I replant in the same raised bed the tree was in or do I need a new spot or new soil? 2) if I get a new apple, is there a way to keep the borers away? 3) are other fruit trees easier to grow? I have a lot of trouble with apples. I planted the tree two years ago (it was a few years old then) and then coddling moth larvae gets every apple. I spray and this past spring put a nylon "sock" on every apple, twisting a wire tie to close the ends, and the larvae still got them all, sometimes eating right through the nylon. Any suggestions would be welcome. I really want an apple tree. Second would be plums but the Grange Coop lady said they wouldn't do well, even though my neighbor has two she ignores and they produce well. The Grange lady said pears or peaches, but pears seem to ripen all at once (at least my mother's did) and I worry about peach trees and the leaf curling problem.

After parvovirus in puppies

My rescued puppy recently died of parvovirus. Eventually we'd like to get another puppy, so how can we make sure the parvovirus is eradicated from our yard? We have washed with a bleach solution pretty much every surface of the interior of our home.

Tree Problem

I have a Tulip tree (Liriodendron) that has developed a nasty-looking split in it's bark as shown in the attached photo. The tree is about 4 years old, and as far as I know, the blemish was not caused by any trauma, but just developed naturally. Is there something I can or should be doing to help this 'wound' to heal, or should I just let nature take it's course? Thank you for any information you can give me.
