should I prune now?

It's June 9 and my raspberries have come and gone and were delicious. The videos I’ve watched show pruning being done when the canes turn brown and leafless. But mine still have lots of green leaves on the stems. Should I wait to prune until the leaves turn brown? Unfortunately, I don't know if they are everbearing or not. Perhaps they will make more fruit in the fall if I don’t prune now. Thank you.

My 2 Eden climbers have black withered stems just below the bud and the buds are browning and drying up. Any clue what this might be?

Amending the soil for tomatoes

Hi. We have only one place in our yard where we can grow tomatoes. Fortunately, it's very sunny and is up against our house. We've planted our tomatoes there for probably 15 years or more. We amend with lime every year. However, the last few years our tomatoes haven't done that well. I'm wondering if we should amend the soil with something in addition to lime before we plant this year.

Horsetail Taking Over

I recently relocated to Cottage Grove from Bend. I had never seen this plant before and it soon became evident it was an invasive weed. I was finally able to identify it as Horsetail. My on-line research gives conflicting information about killing these invasive plants (and to my surprise places to buy them!!). I am becoming more concerned because my dogs have taken to pulling them up and eating them. How can I safely rid my property of these? Thank you for your help! Patti Felton

Old Rose new growth

I cut this old rose back more aggressively this year. And now it has a lot of new growth on old cane. Do I need to prune those off? Thank you! Charlotte Williams
