I am a native of Battle Creek Michigan, where, as a young child, I watched our drinking water as it was being contaminated. I was told then, as I am again being told now, don’t worry so much. It’s insignificant and won’t hurt the environment. After decades have passed, I still, will not, drink any of Battle Creeks water. I don’t care who tells me its safe to drink.
Hello, What are the best ways to stop pea weavils on peas? I would prefer organic methods if they yield results. Thank you so much!
When cleaning pruning tools to prevent the spread of disease in small fruits, is 70% Isoprophyl Alcohol as effective as a bleach solution? If the latter is used, how much bleach should be added to one cup of water? Can you suggest a site where this topic is treated?

We just moved to Corbett onto a property that has been left to the blackberries for about 6 years. The other day we discovered a tall (about 25' high) hazelnut tree. We have found signs that there were animals trampling around below it too, so we think it might have produced nuts. We cannot find another hazelnut on the property, however. I don't want to wait until it is too late to find out it doesn't have a pollinator. Is there a hazelnut variety that acts as a universal pollinator? Or do you have other suggestions for what we can do so we can have lots of wonderful hazelnuts?

What is the best time to prune our apple,pear,peach,nectarine,and sweet cherry trees? All are 2-3 years old and semi-dwarf.
I brought a houseplant inside from being on my front porch. Shortly thereafter, little hard pods/shells/cases appeared on the wall near the plant. I took one to Paulino Gardens and the expert there said it was not insect related because it was hard and didn't have a soft interior. I moved the plant to another room. These mysterious pods again appeared on the wall in the other room. They only appeared near the plant that I brought in. I'm pretty convinced that they a. are traveling with the plant and b. are insect based. Do you have any idea what they are? They are very small - a 16th of an inch or so. They caused spots on the paint on the walls where they attached themselves. Please let me know what you think and what I should do about them. The damage to the paint is a concern, as it the health of the plant and other plants in my house. Thanks

I live in Denver and have an area i would like to plant with buffalo grass. one corner is shaded from the south by a tree and from the west by a building and thus has full sun for only a few hours in the morning. My reading suggests buffalo grass would be a poor choice in that corner. is there a better choice of grass with similar xeriscape characteristics for such an area?

I am working with a small group of residents to create a budget for a community garden in our neighborhood. We are looking for costs to build raised beds. Do you have any cost models we could use?

Hi, I was wondering if there is a safe recipe for making home canned tomato soup? I cannot find anything in my canning books. It seems like you should be able to at least make a base that you can add milk to when you warm it up.
I have a nest of ground dwelling yellow jackets on the edge of my yard that I need to eradicate. I would like to do this while they are dormant this winter. What is the best product to use in this situation? Our roommate has already been attacked while he was raking leaves this fall so getting rid of them before spring is a priority.
Last year (2011) we lost one tomato plant and pulled it up by the roots and disposed of it. This year on 4 plants the fruit set and then one by one the plants turned brown and had to be destroyed. We got no production this year in 2012. I suspect some kind of fungal disease is present in the soil. Do you have a suggestion?

We just found out we have bed bugs. We cannot afford an exterminator as we are on a fixed income. We did get some spray for them called Bug Max by Enforcer. My sister stayed with us and the people she was staying with have them and now we do! Do you think the foggers for them would work? Would you recommend that? I would really appreciate it if you have any info for me and my husband.

Does Cornell provide information on current insects and IPM techniques during the year either online or email? For instance, I'm from Massachusetts and Umass does in its IPM Berry Blast -- a periodic e-message that highlights specific pest issues (insect, disease or weed), on a timely basis through the growing season. These messages contain basic identification and life cycle information along with integrated management (IPM) recommendations for pests likely to be found at the time the message is issued. Recommendations are based on current information.
