Do you know what this is?

Do you know what this is? It came up this summer in my flower bed? If it is a tree that is worth keeping, I would like to move it to my yard.

zoning amendment

Must an amendment to a Zoning Ordinance be in the form of an "Ordinance"? Assume all other proper procedure is followed. Once a legislative body receives a recommendation from the Planning Commission and wishes to approve the amendment, are they passing an Ordinance to amend (as would have be submitted to the State for review prior to 2006 Zoning Enabling Act) or is a majority vote approval enough? Should there be an Amendatory Ordinance?

Flower identification, rarity.

morning, looking to see what this flower is. Only half open, he's lived there for 30 years, first time he's ever seen it. Is there 30 year flowers? Can it be safely transplanted?

Bark loss on major limb of old maple tree

I have a mature maple that I noticed has lost bark at the base of a major limb. I would hate to lose this tree. I am wondering if this can be remedied to extend the life of the tree. Who could I contact for a consult? Thank you!

dog feces in planting soil

Here is my dilemma: I had asked my husband to clear the grass from a small (4'x8') area in our backyard for a vegetable bed. We enclosed the area in railroad ties about 6 inches high, and my plan was to work through the soil that was already there and remove rocks, etc., then mix in enriched soil and manure, and fill it to the top of the railing. While I was working through the existing dirt, I came upon dog feces. We do have a dog, so I didn't think much of it, got rid of it, and proceeded to add soil and manure and begin mixing it together with the original soil. However, I kept coming across more and more pieces of dog poop (I kept stepping in it as I worked the soil.) It turns out my husband, after clearing the grass in the area, had then buried about a weeks' worth of dog poop he'd gathered from the lawn that day. He buried it about 4 inches deep. He thought it would eventually decompose and be good for the soil, which of course I know is not true of dog feces. At that point I stopped working the soil and got as much of the intact pieces of poop out as I could but I have no doubt that at least some is still in there, either mixed into the soil or solid pieces. If I add more soil on top, 6-10 inches deep, and don't mix it in with the current layer, will it be safe to plant vegetables in? Or is the soil unusable?

Goat not eating much grain?

My goat doesn't eat much grain. Should I worry? He eats grass like no other and hay. But he barley eats 1/4 of a cup. I only give each goat one cup with a diet balancer in it. He drinks water and acts fine. I'm confused and worried.

seperate ordinances

Can a county, that has a land use (zoning) ordinance, have separate stand alone ordinances for specific land uses? Should any land use ordinance be incorporated into an existing ordinance? Could a separate ordinance be passed for Wind Turbines or Med. Marijuana, as that develops? If a County or Municipality currently has no land use ordinance, could they pass an Ordinance to just regulate a specific ordinance?
