Planting of Strawberries - Timing

I wish to plant a couple of 20' rows of June-bearing strawberries (i.e., Cavendish). If I plant this fall (2018) would I be able to harvest any fruit the following June (2019)? If I will not get fruit until June 2020 when planting this fall, then I might as well wait until Spring 2019 to start the rows. Advice? Tks

Native grasses that are particularly good or better at removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

I'm working with a student who is wondering if there's been any research to date on the effectiveness of different native grass species removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, perhaps at different rates? The species we're interested in using for an experiment are panicum virgatum, andropogon virginicus, carex pensylvanica, chasmanthium latifolium, schizachyrium scoparium, and sorghastrum nutans.

Flying insect identification

Hello, I found a very large hornet-like thing flying around my bathroom. I made the difficult decision to kill it rather than adopt it as a pet. I would love to know what it is so I can put an end to any potential problems. My home seems to attract very large insects. Last year it was a spider that I ended up just naming because I couldn’t catch it, but that’s beside the point. Any information would be appreciated! The hornet is about 1.25 in. Thank you in advanced!

soil ph and composition

I'd like to have my soil tested prior to re-seeding my entire lawn for the fall, for best outcome. Where should I go for that? Anyone at your school do that as a public service?

Cecil County. Lawn Fungus Control

We live in the Rising Sun Area. Our tall fescue lawn has recently developed several brown areas. Through the internet I have identified the problem as red spot fungus. The infected area is located in about 1/3 of my acre lawn. Do you have any recommendations on controlling this fungus and to stop it's spread?
