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?

weaning weights

I weaned calves in October that right off the cow averaged 450 to 500 pounds. I kept two steers to fatten out. Long story short, I sold those two steers today, and they weighed 450 and 525 pounds. For the last three months they have been getting 50 pounds of silage two times a day. They did not gain any weight in three months. I am also subsidizing with brome hay. I have proven bulls and good momma cows. How can I improve my weaning weights or utilize my forage to get bigger calves? I know of cattle with less forage or no forage at all that produce bigger weaned calves.

CA Gold Rush sawmill lumber

Dear Sir or Madam, For our scholarly journal, I'm researching this daguerreotype from the Gold Rush (probably 1853). It is of a man's cabin and I know he owned a sawmill. In this detail, in the distance you can see lumber stacked. The question would be, is this a building site and it's stacked there to build something? Or, is there sawmill nearby and this is fresh-cut wood staked for drying? There seems to be one piled stack as well as a lot stood up 'teepee' style. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Dying Monkey Puzzle Tree

We live in Florence on Munsel Lake and have a 40 plus foot Monkey Puzzle Tree that appears to be dying. Until early in 2012 the tree was beautiful and healthy. I am wondering if the tree has a disease or is just old and actually dying? I would be happy to send via email a photo of the tree, if that would help.


Lane County Oregon about 6 years ago


I know that grass is not "green," environmentally speaking--but some amount of it is required for large commercial developments. My company has attempted to quit using pesticides and herbicides on our properties, but the grass appears to be dying and our groundskeepers cannot keep up with the weeds. What suggestions do you have? What types of grass grow well in Douglas County, and how can I nourish it without chemical fertilizers? What are some natural ways to combat weeds that don't involve tons of man-hours? I'd appreciate whatever tips you can give! Thank you.

Red Rodan Cabbage

How can I get a hold of some seed for this outstanding variety. It seems to have gone the way of the homing pigeon! I planted some 1999 seed of this variety in 2010 to overwinter. It started to bolt in the spring so I forgot about it, thinking I'd just use it for seed. However, when I went to that garden several weeks later, it was setting heads 3 ft in the air! We proceeded to harvest and eat cabbage off this planting for the next year--including small cabbages growing like brussel sprouts on the stem. We ate our last "fresh" cabbage from storage in December 2012. But I have no seed to replant! Didn't know it would be so hard to find! Please help!

Growing blueberries in north central TX

Hello, I would like to learn more about what plants grow well in what parts of TX. I would like to grow pecans, blackberries, blueberries, pumpkins, roses, wildflowers, and Christmas trees. I am assuming that these different plants require different soils, and I would like some help identifying what type of soil is required for each plant. I would like to grow them in Dallas, Ellis, Johnson, Hill, or Navarro counties. These are all in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8.

Incubator and Chick Eggs

I teach third grade in Boulder. We have new state standards on teaching the plant, animal, and human life cycle. We are interested in whether you still have a loan program for incubators and chick eggs. If you do, we'd be very interested in speaking with you. We would appreciate any additional materials you may have for the teaching of our upcoming unit as well.

Bottling Butter

I have seen articles lately about bottling butter. Once said to boil it and bottle as you would vegetables. One said to put the bottles in the oven, add the butter, let it melt, and then secure with a boiled flat and ring.

Are these methods safe for keeping butter and margarine?
