Mystery weed!

Hello from Murdo! I have so, so, so much of this weed growing in my empty lot next door. I have been trying to identify it so I can remove it correctly. I THINK it might be Ceratocephala testicular but that is strictly an uneducated guess. I have attached photos and would greatly appreciate any help you could give me in identifying and eradicating it. Thanks so much~Deb Byrd

White birch tree issues

Looks like the tree is low on iron but there seems to be some other issue. Brown blotches on leaves and some leaves are dead and the tree overall looks rough. Any tips would be helpful. Thanks

Freeze-Drying Food

Are there any Extension handouts or factsheets related to the new home freeze-dryers and food safety related to the use of this new equipment?

I understand that some of the new equipment is expensive but have been asked to do an educational training this fall on our Indian reservation related to this technology as the community has purchased one of these units to be utilized by their local gardeners. Just needing help to prepare a training on this topic.

Do you know what this is on my laminate floor?

I noticed this on my hallway laminate floor about a week ago. We had this laminate floor installed in April. We have lived in this 2nd floor condo for 15 years and haven't seen anything like this before. Could it have been in the laminate floor before it was installed. There was carpet on the floor before. The pictures are what has appeared just today.
