When I discovered that all my day lillys had been attacked by leaf miners I cut them all back to the ground three weeks ago. Now new growth is emerging and the new six inch leaves are already showing signs of infestation. What to do?
About a fourth of tree branches appear to be brown and dying. Is there a treatment for these symptoms? John

I am looking for a recipe for fruit pie filling, that you can. I got the recipe from here many years ago, but can't find it. Do you have it still? I was specifically looking for the apple and peach pie filling.

My lawn has large dry, yellow areas in several places. I water regularly and have recently fertilized. Some areas are green and look healthy. Is there something I can do about this? Did it last summer too. Thanks. JC Simmons

My potato plants have flowered and I'm going to start digging little ones soon. I noticed today that some have what looks like a little green tomato where the flower used to be, kind of like the flower has gone to seed. I've never seen this before. I planted newly purchased seed potatoes this spring after several years of just relying on whatever potato volunteers came up from last year. I moved the new ones to a new bed. What are the little green tomato-looking things?

Hi. I planted some bearberry plants in my garden with the goal of establishing them as ground cover. I'm uploading a photo of the original plant, and also of some small shoots whose leaves look to me like the the same plant, spreading the way I wanted. But before I let them grow, can you please take a look at the photos, and let me know if you concur? Thanks!
Hello , We have several trees on our property of different varieties. The bark on the trunks and branches our becoming covered with a type of green fungus. I am concerned with the two Maple Trees in our front yard that are starting to show signs of it. What would it be and what can I do to stop it ? I see it happening to a lot of trees in different areas.. Thank You, Charlie Meyers

My maple leaf viburnum looks very sick. Any ideas on what may be causing it and remedies? Thanks very much.
Hi, this is Mike Crossley, an entomology PhD student at University of Wisconsin, studying Colorado potato beetle. I recently collected some potato beetles (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) from buffalobur (Solanum rostratum) in eastern Colorado, and noticed many beetles on a plant unknown to me (picture attached). I was wondering if you or someone you know could identify this for me? I found the plant in a few locations within Comanche National Grassland - specifically about 4 miles in to Picket Wire Canyon.

How should Leaf-Gro be utilized in home gardens? Solely as a mulch? Strictly as compost? As a soil amendment, and if so, what are recommended additives, if any, which can be included with Leaf-Gro to maximize its utility? I've always used my own compost as compost, mulch, and soil additive, but I'd include Leaf-Gro if an significant advantage could be realized. Thanks for any information you can supply.
Recently purchases a four foot coffee plant- I transplanted it as the pot seemed small for the large plant. Now some of the leaves are curling slightly but others look nice and crisp. Have placed it out side on nice days -otherwise it is in a filtered light on south - west porch. What am I doing wrong. Water when soil feels dry.

My very large squash plants are looking absolutely perfect. They have blossoms, and plenty of bees visiting. But the stems have problems. I'm afraid of what it may mean. I have done nothing but sprayed a few times with neem oil. Please tell me that it is nothing to worry about! (See photos)
Hello, I have a sloping backyard (pics attached). It's quite a grade. It fills up with stiltgrass, which I mow. However - I find it unstable and I don't think I want to continue mowing it in my senior years. I would like to plant suitable plants that like shade and rich soil as a ground cover that might crowd out the stiltgrass. I have had some success with pachysandra, but I think too much would look boring. I am trying some grasses but they sure don't grow fast. (I think they need more sun.) Do you have any suggestions? Otherwise, I guess it just comes down to mowing. Thanks.

Hello - We have a tree on our balcony that is showing signs of distress. We do not know what type of tree it is nor what the issue may be. Can you tell us what type of a tree it is and why the tips of the leaves are turning brown? Is this an overwatering problem or a root problem due to the tree being too big for the outdoor balcony planter?

Just curious what these might be. One seems to have a type of grape leaf, the other sumac?
Can you ID what kind of wasps made this nest and if they are pollinators? I'm hoping that you can see the critters in the photos I've included. I have many, many different kinds of pollinators in my organic gardens. I'm so excited to have honey bees as well! I plant lots of natives and have vegetable and fruit gardens. This hive is immediately outside my property in a tall tree on the edge of woods. Thank you.

Will green beans be safe if canned with ham base put in the water that goes into the canning jar? This gives them delicious flavor and I would like to prepare the jarred beans with this flavorful liquid.
Thanks so much.

I just lost my ash tree to emerald ash borer. I like to replace it. A decidious tree is preferred to enjoy shade in summer and sunlight in winter. Location will be facing south.

It's late July and we have been in the mid 90's for weeks. My cottonwoods are 1-4 years old, they are planted in a row for a windbreak and run on a drip system. I water them every other day for an hour, so they each get 2 gallons of water every time they are watered. They were fertilizer spiked in spring, now the leaves on about a forth of them are drying up and falling off. Are they getting to much or not enough water? I also have a row of blue spruce that get everything the same and about 4 of them are loosing needles and turning brown.
What is this?
