Soil testing for dangerous components to animals

I recently had a 9 month old mini pig die and we were unable to figure out the exact cause of death. She rooted in our yard and I would like to find out if there is anything in our soil that could have caused or contributed to her death. We are getting another mini pig and before I let our next pig root in our yard I would like to have the soil tested. What type of tests should I have done? Do you do this type of testing or would I have to send my samples somewhere else? I live in Howard County zip 20723. Can I do any research to see what my land was used for or if there was dumping of any kind in my area? Thank you

Scattering in a system

I'm curious about a thing. We know for example clouds are white as the scattering of light gives all wavelength coming together from it giving all colours that is white.

But i wonder, if we were a single very little particle in a cloud what we would see? All single colors (wavelength) coming towards us? thank you

Hello - I have 20 acres in near the intersection of St. Louis, Koochiching and Itasca Counties.

What species of male would grow the best in this zone, should I plant saplings or lager trees, and how much space do they need, I don't want to crowd them.

cliva

For about 10 yrs i've had cliva, now 2 pots. I know they should be crowded and very dry in winter, then bloom in spring. So: 1) why have mine sometimes bloomed in late summer and fall?; 2) why do outer leaves often flop down, begin to separate, then yellow and die? and 3) i've read that in winter should keep completely dry, but also to water lightly once a month - which do you recommend? thank you

good bug or bad bug?

I trimmed a branch off our our pin oak that was hanging over our woodpile so that I had to duck when bringing firewood to the house and noticed this honeycomb-looking possibly egg sac tucked in the branch of the tree. I have removed this one, but wondering if I should be looking for (and eliminating) more.. or if they are possibly beneficial? it was small, about the size of my thumb tip to first thumb knuckle.

Plant ID

Please help me identify this plant found along the roadside near Abiquiu, New Mexico. It was a large, woody shrub, approx 5-6 feet high and wide, arching, woody branches and very fragrant when pinched. I thought it was a sage, but it smelled strongly of hay as it dried. The leaves were very thin and a sage green color. It had tiny flowers which were already dead by the time I harvested the sample in June. The way it dried was as it looked blowing in the wind. I am hoping to harvest seeds from it and plant it in my backyard. Any info you can give me will be helpful.

Deer damage to grapes?

I want to plant garden grapes at our cabin in Wayne County. We have an abundant deer herd and I am concerned about browsing on the vines in the early years. I have the Extension bulletin on growing grapes but it doesn't mention protection from wildlife on the vines. Do you have any suggestions - is protection necessary, what should I use? Thanks in advance.

Penny royal

I have several large raised beds used for vegetables. Most years I cover them with shredded leaves after the plants are removed. This year it did not happen because the fall was so wet most of the leaves did not get shredded. Now i find those that were not covered are matted with penny royal which seems to grow all winter. I am thinking of spraying them with Weed-B-gone. Is that a good choice? Or something else?

I am preparing to write a blog post and include photos on my website, www.acityamonth.com about El Tule, the majestic Montezuma Cypress in Oaxaca, Mexico.

I am curious to know if there is any notion as to how much oxygen a Montezuma Cypress might produce.

Thanks.
