My fig tree is approximately 12 years old and has grown very well in a partly sunny location. It is about 15 feet tall and 8 feet wide at this point. Fruit production is sparse and small, and usually the deer get there before I do! This year I noticed yellow discoloration along the edges of most of the leaves. Some have suggested this is fig mosaic virus but it doesn't look like the images I've seen on the web. Of note, the tree is near marshland and may be subject to some tidal incursion even though the bed is raised. See attached photo. Please advise! Thank you, Jeanne Bernard

Gophers or prairie dogs digging through my garden

My yard has been invaded by some underground critters. They're eating a lot of roots and killing some plants. They Leave behind fresh piles of soil up to 18 inches wide and 6 inches high. The holes are 2 to 3 inches wide. i saw one on our deck that looked like a squirrel except it was thinner and did not have a fluffy tail. I live next to Cheyenne Mountain high school where there is a prairie dog colony on the retaining walls that are made of boulders by the soccer fields. What are these animals, and how do I get rid of them?
