Plastic packaging for a food concentrate

I am developing a product that is a fruit concentrate, like a paste. What is the very best way other than a jar to air tight package this for sales? I would like it to be as sustainable as possible and then housed in a recycled box or wrap. Where do I begin from the finished product ready for storage in a one time use sealed package. Is there a way to package it without needing to be in the refrigerated section of the store? Thank you!

Identify and Treat Plant Problem

I have an Ipomoea batatas ‘Blackie’ plant in a container with a couple other plants. It's just the Ipomoea that is having any problems. I've looked high and low to identify the problem, but don't see anything that fits. I'm attaching a picture of a leaf with the problem; but briefly, new leave quickly shoot up from the stem and within a few days develop tiny, bunched spots mainly along the veins of the leaf. The leaf then shrivels up within a couple days and falls off. I really like the plant, so if there's a way to fix this I'd like to know!

Any ideas? I thought someone was supposed to get back to me within 2-3 days.

Rabbits eating cables, hoses in parked cars.

Help! My neighbors and I in Mesa are experiencing car problems due to rabbits eating car hoses and cables (spark plug wires, etc). How can we get rid of them, or at least keep them away from our vehicles? Damages have ranged from a few hundred to two thousand dollars! Some of us park our cars for prolonged periods yet others are being driven regularly and we are still having this problem.

accessory buildings

Our present zoning requires that a residential home must be built before an accessory building is allowed. Since we are in a rural area, this has been a major issue and we would like to revise this zoning to allow accessory building in all districts within limitations. Any documentation or direction you can provide would be certainly appreciated.

goat herding

We are planning to move in Natrona County and have Boer goats (only 2) and plan to raise a few kids a year to supply ourselves with meat. Can you give me information on the grasslands around the area pertaining to grazing a few goats? Is there browse there that would help along with our feeding them? What pertinent information can you offer? I really am not sure what questions to ask. We are also looking in Campbell County for land. Any thoughts on that?

cherry tree mold/worms

We have an 8-year-old Stella cherry tree in our backyard. It produced good fruit yields for its first four years. For the past few years the fruit begins to ripen, and then as soon as it ripens a mold takes over and makes the fruit soft and unappealing. Also, when we cut into the cherries, we often find a small grey worm against the pit. We have used dormant sprays in the past, but they do not seem to take care of the problem. Any recommendations?
