My mother in law makes this weed into tea. She only knows the name in spanish "encinilla". I'm not sure on the spelling. We've been trying to figure out about this plant for years. It would be so awesome to know. Thanks.

Old soil

We have several bags of Garden Plus Organic Compost Derived from Cow Manure that is at least five years old. Must we dispose of it or can it still be used?

What's wrong with my grapes?

I have no prior experience growing grapes. I planted two vines from bare root nursery stock five years ago. I do not recall the variety. This year I have four different shapes of leaves. Most are normal. Some are oblong with perfectly smooth edges. Some have the general shape of a grape leaf, but the edge is many small serrations. On others the edge is curled upward. The one in the picture has a fluorescent blue bug on it (whatever that is). A few of the bunches have what appears to be scabbing on the skin. And lately, immature grapes that appear to be healthy are falling to the ground. I have sprayed them primarily with neem oil. I use a standard garden fertilizer (10-10-10). What can I do?

New tree I have created

Six years ago I put a peach, apple, pear and avacodo core/pit in a hole in the ground, poured in some 10 year old liquid fertilizer into the hole and waited..the next spring I got a tree from the hole that appears to be a splice of all four fruits, and perhaps spores that were present in the soil..the tree is now 15 feet tall, has orange bark,gray bark, and brown bark of several textures, produces a sweet berry fruit, without producing a flower...Most amazingly the tree produces at least 10 distinctive leaves with as many as five or six on the same branch....each year a new shape , size and shade of leaf has appeared .....what should I do....I believe the tree is the only one like it on earth......help..
