Odd orchid growing pattern

I have an orchid plant that is growing in an unusual way and I'm not sure quite what it needs or what to do with it. It has a long stem (22") and there's a shoot coming off of it that has a couple 'roots' and now a cluster of leaves. Should I snip that off and consider it a 'starter' for a new orchid plant? I haven't seen anything like it. I've attached a picture to help.

safe moss prevention near vegetable field

We have a large garage that has a sloped roof upon which big trees shed needles. On this shady roof, moss grew for ten years. I've swept off the needles, scrubbed off the moss and now wish to treat the roof to prevent the moss from returning. My daughter will cultivate the field onto which the gutters drain, so she insists that I find a product which will not hinder her plants' growth or make her vegetables toxic. The landlord has provided a can of zinc sulfate monohydrate (one version of Moss Out) but the label warns not to let runoff contact plants. Another version of Moss Out contains ammoniate soap and fatty acids and there are other products that contain potassium soap and fatty acids. Some claim to be non-toxic to plants, but warn that they should not be used around edible plants. I've also been told to use straight vinegar. Lime has been mentioned, as has a biological fungicide called Actin Iron but I can't find any info on it -- I might have misspelled it. I've been warned not to nail zinc or copper strips. Maybe it's best to use nothing at all? BTW, my daughter-farmer is not striving for "organic" certification but, again, wants to avoid anything that will hurt either her plants or the marketability/edibility/flavor of her vegetables. We eagerly await your reply. a

Large Brown Areas in Grass

Last fall brown areas began appearing in by bluegrass and fescue lawns. I treated for grubs, but the areas became larger. I then treated for fungus, but it may have been too late in the season. What can I do to stop the spread of whatever this is and to help regenerate new grass in these areas especially as Spring is coming?

refrigerator pickles at room temp

We brought up 2 jars of our refrigerator pickles from our extra fridge in the pump house. We put them on the kitchen counter and then for some dumb reason they sat there for 2 days or so before we realized they needed to be put in the fridge. I say throw them out, my husband says they should be okay and eat them. We put them in the fridge until we get advice. Are they safe?

Watering perennials in Denver?

I am planning to do some hand watering in my yard and garden today (Feb 16--expected high in upper 50s) but I am also afraid that sometimes winter watering "wakes" up perennials prematurely and they get frozen later in spring cold and snow. I just want some expert reassurance that I'm not doing the wrong thing!

Last year there was a dispute while the turkeys were being judged. The judge said that there should be separate classes for meat turkeys and show turkeys. My son is putting together his poultry order for this year and we were wondering if there will be two classes for the turkeys or only a class for meat turkeys. Thanks

Thank you for any help you may be able to offer!

Soil contamination testing

Hi, I was thinking about growing some food crops in ground this year, rather than in containers as I have done before, but the site is in downtown Hillsboro and is next to a gas station. Is there any way I can get the soil tested for any possible contaminants which would maybe rule out this approach?
