Problem growing beets

My beets this year for the first time did not develop any size. A recent soil test shows ample phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. ph is 6.8. Deer ate tips off many but not all plants. I water regularly. What can I do? Mice are also a problem annually. Any suggestions?

my hibuscus hasn't had flowers in a while

I live in northern Michigan and have an indoor hibiscus I received when my daughter was born - 26 years ago. I have kept it alive, but haven't had any flowers in a few years. Any suggestions? This year I trimmed the roots and corresponding plant; that usually does the trick. No flowers yet.

Lyme disease-bearing insects

Dr. Howard Russell's article on ticks lists the diseases they carry, but quite recently I was informed by a friend (who attended a seminar on the subject) that other insects besides deer ticks are now transmitting Lyme disease: ALL ticks, blackflies, deer flies, mosquitoes, as well as others I do not now recall. It seems the bacterium? virus? has mutated.The seminar was conducted in Iron Mountain earlier this spring. Is there any evidence for this? Thank you for your time!Sara Culver

Hollyhock diseases or pests

Greetings from Marquette Mi. My name is Chuck Weinrick. I have had serious problems with my hollyhocks for about 10 years. I'm sending you photos I took August 3rd, currently they are practically bare stalks with a few blossoms. Rebecca Krans directed me to you. I hope you have a solution to this condition. Thank You Chuck
