Marion Berry Cultivation

I have done my total pruning of the old canes last fall after fruiting, but then the new canes grew out almost 20 feet with many many side sprouts, some up to 6 feet long. Should I leave it all on, or cut off the side sprouts? I can also cut out some of the entire new canes... there is just too much in the space I have. What would be better, take out some entire canes, or remove the side sprouts?

Bees in attic - kind? Eradication?

Small bees were in my attic during 2016 - creating fine sawdust. They died when weather got cold. I'm afraid a new generation will hatch or invade when weather warms up. What kind of bees are they and how do I get rid of them? Attached Image shows size, color. It's unclear because I don't now how to remove sawdust without destroying carcass.

Green Powdery Substance on Crepe Myrtle

Our newly planted (six months ago) crepe myrtle tree has a green powdery substance on its branches. Most of the green powder is on the bottom 1 to 2 feet of the tree. What could this substance be and what can we do about it? It looks like it could be an algae of some type (it does not look like moss).

5-6 year old brown turkey fig

Hello, I have questions about my fig tree. The first 2-3 years I had lots of figs on it but the past 3 I didn't get any figs to ripen. I think we didn't get figs because the winter was too harsh. Last winter we protected the tree by wrapping it and this past summer we had lots of leaves but no ripe figs (many that never ripened). Meanwhile the tree has now gotten too tall (9-10 feet) and bushy. I'd like to cut it back but I see new growth at the tips of all the stems. I don't want to lose this year's fig crop (mild winter so hopefully good) so I hesitate to prune now. Do you have some advice for me? Much appreciated,

Iron Clay Cow Peas

I was wondering the crude protein content of Iron Clay Cow peas' leaves. I cannot find anything regarding this, I can find the protein content of the peas, but the deer eat them before they ever mature. I was trying to get an rough answer, because I know there is a lot of variables that go into that question (age of plant,soil,etc). Worst comes to worst I will send in the leaves to AU for testing.

Raspberry pruning

How big is too big for the budding tips of new branches? I want to cut down my ever bearing red raspberry stand so they are refreshed and we can more easily transplant. I'm just nervous to cut them down too soon or too late. The buds are swelling because we're having very warm weather . They aren't projecting from the branch though, so perhaps it's f8ne....?

We are being advised by an official with vast experience in zoning, that it is unheard of to allow additions to a building that is deemed as nonconforming.As an example,A home that was built prior to zoning enactment and is now a nonconforming structure due to being too close to the east side lot line, only. Is it advisable to allow a twenty by twenty addition to the west side of the house with no issues with any setbacks? And if you can answer this, what percentage of communities would allow this?
