Small tree identification

I found this tree growing in the sand near where I worked and I can't tell what it is. I've asked a friend and looked online, but maybe it's too young to identify. It's very hardy. It was eaten by a cat twice and came back both times. I am currently keeping it in a pot in my room. It's very young, maybe three inches tall. I would appreciate any help identifying it.

I lost a Miunt Royal plum, Psrker pear and Honeycrisp apple tree last year in...

I lost a Miunt Royal plum, Psrker pear and Honeycrisp apple tree last year in my back yard. I believe this happened after a friend pruned the plum too late and we had a wet spring. The trees were dug up and properly disposed of. I want to plant a new tree, preferably fruit, in the place where these trees were. I would also like to plant a bush such as honeyberry there. I'm a beekeeper, so I can't do anything that will hurt my bees who are nearby. What can I plant? Is blight in the soil? Should I add copper to the soil? Please help. Tess Galati 652.210.6799

Getting rid of Japanese knotweed...

Hi there: We are looking to permanently remove Japanese knotweed that is near a proposed rain garden we will install. I have asked two firms to give me an estimate--one said now (spring) is not the time to treat, but rather later in the season (late actually--like September). Another said we could treat now (the buds are vulnerable poking out, but not much green) and also later. Not sure which is best advice! Now the plant has a few shoots coming up and the remnants of the last season plants (like hosta tubes).

Grafting potato and tomato plants

I've seen some information on grafting potato plant with tomato plants to grow both potatoes and tomatoes. I have avoided potatoes in the past because our community garden plot has issues with potato beetles and it was just too much of a chore to go pick off bugs every day. My question is if I try this method will the potato beetles eat my tomatoes or would this eliminate my potato beetle problem as there wouldn't be potato foliage for them to eat? Any insight is appreciated. I'm kind of looking for the best of both worlds situation.

Fiddle leaf fig cold exposure maybe?

Our weather in Alabama has been crazy last few weeks. I put my fiddle leaf fig outside as I do every year but suddenly we had a cold snap. I brought them back in but might not have been soon enough. I noticed next day several leaves were a reddish color & over next few days get darker. I'm assuming it was the cold exposure & I don't think it's dying but how's the best way to handle it? Should I cut affected leaves off, wait & let fall off or will this cause more shock? These are trees about 5-6 feet tall & seems most leaves affected are the larger ones & towards the upper part. Just want to save the trees & hopefully find a way to keep some sort of "balance" visually. In the pics you can see how much they're affected & has never looked this way. Thanks for listening and appreciate any help you can give!

Dominant crop per county in MD and water demand

Hi. I am doing a water use report for Maryland and determining the consumptive water use. I need to know the primary crop per county and how much water it needs over the growing season. Based on our reported irrigation withdrawals, I estimate the growing season requiring irrigation in Maryland is April through September, although if I did the Delmarva separate from the rest of the state, that could be different.

We think we got them from Coffin Butte landfill compost. The person testing our soil said that it may be they are not heating their compost up hot enough for long enough.

Cover Crops For Small Gardens And Starting Seedlings

Hello,

I'd like to get started on my garden preparation soon and I wondered if there were any cover crops you would suggest for a small garden. I know they are typically planted in the fall and I'm not sure if there are any you can do in Spring? I will be putting early veggies in as soon as possible (peas, etc.), so it would be either something I could plant and till in before then, or something I could plant in the areas of the garden which get the later crops.

Also, I'd like to start some seedlings inside this year, flowers, tomatoes, and peppers. So any resources on that would be appreciated. If I want to do melons and squash is it better to directly sow the seeds or are these also good started indoors?

Lastly, are there any products you'd recommend for this, grow lights, heating mats, etc? I won't have a lot of room, but hope to do 4-6 flats.

Thank you!

Invasion of Frogs

We recently opened our sump pump to daylight for water drainage issues. Since then we have had an invasion of frogs in our sump pump. Even after placing screens on both ends of the pipes, they are reappearing in our sump. This is a problem especially if they get caught in the pump mechanism. What do you suggest? The pest companies don't deal with them and neither do the lawn people!
