Edible Mushrooms?

I picked these mushrooms earlier today in my backyard in the open grass, almost no shade. I'm having a really hard time trying to figure out what they are and am hoping you can help! (: I have pictures as well. One is a side by side of the same mushroom and the other is the caps of all three. They're about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long and the caps are about 1/2 to 1 inch wide, all dark brown.I tried a spore print but it didn't work :/ sorry about that. Hope you can help, thank you!

My husband and I are interested in planting an orchard on our small 9 acre farm. What are some larger nurseries that specialize in orchard stock, ideally with many varieties of various fruit trees? Also we are wondering if you know of any good nursery sources for heirloom or disease-resistant varieties? We live in Hamilton County but are willing too travel statewide also. Thank you! _Pamela

What kind of plant is this?

I've had this little guy for about a month now, and had been growing fine however it's starting to look a little droopy. I live in a dorm, and temperatures are dropping so I'm wondering if the cold is bothering it? I don't over water it, just give water whenever the soil is dry. The bottom of the glass contain it's in has rocks for about an inch before the soil starts - so the roots don't just sit in water. Does it need a bigger container? It's been very cloudy the past week in Cincinnati so I'm wondering if he isn't getting enough sunlight. I'd like to know what type of plant this is - and how to best care for it especially now in the start of winter!! Thank you

Stand soil test indicate contamination?

Hi there! I was curious if the standard soil test would pick/indicate any contamination in the soil? Trace chemicals? Hazardous chemicals/compounds? Toxicity? Things of that nature. If not--what soil test would you recommend to use to ensure that I know my soil is safe for growing.

Hi, I've had this infestation of this grass for some years now and it is out of hand. I would like to selectively remove it from my lawn and gardens with some sort of herbicide, but I can't seem to get an exact identification and then determine the proper treatment. If you could please I.D. this grass and offer (if possible) a remedy to kill it, it would be most appreciated. I have loaded some images on my website: (http://www.windwoodllc.com/weeds). If they are not adequate for identification, I can make better and more detailed images at your request. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Rick Hartigan
