Unknown tiny spider

I’ve had a near infestation of these tiny spiders amongst my chili plants. The webs distort the tips and joints of the plants. Any ideas for what type this is?

Pole bean problems

My pole beans were doing fine and then I checked on them today and their leaves looked like this. I know that there is some leaf miner damage, but I'm more worried about the crinkling on the leaves. I have seen some black bean aphids and have been blasting them off with high pressure water. (Pictured are Orient Wonder and Purple Pod. I also have scarlet emperor but they don't seem to have this issue)

Strange fungi growing in our garden.

Hello! We have noticed a strange hole with what appears to be a fungus growing in our pebble garden. It’s gotten very large and strange looking. Feel like rubber. We are so confused. Facebook identify plant sites aren’t letting me ask because they think the photo is fake, but it’s not. Please help. We have two small kids and need to know how to kill/rid this growth or fungus.

Can I bring Iris bulbs, Blue Mist and Turks Cap transplants from north Texas

I purchased a home in Golden and will be moving there from north Texas. Are there any restrictions against bringing transplants and bulbs from out of state? I'd like to bring some as a reminder of my past and to attract butterflies. I know Irises do well, I visited Chatfield Farms two years ago. If I can bring plants, are there any tips on preparing them for travel?

Wooly Croton

Hi. I have been battling goat weed (wooly Croton) in my pastures since purchasing my property 5 years ago. At purchase, the pastures were infested with the plant. I have been spraying with 2-4-d amine in spring when the plants are small. This works well to kill the goatweed plants that are there at time of spraying. However, throughout the summer, any rain encourages a new crop of them to germinate and grow. Is there a pre-emergent herbicide that I can apply to my pastures that would help control this? If so, when is the best time of year to apply it?
