How to apply side dressing in a garden with straw mulch

i am wanting to apply a side dressing to my tomato, pepper and squash plants within the next two weeks. It is a controlled release nitrogen product 12-6-6 . It recommends 2 tablespoons per square foot of soil I know i am supposed to keep it six inches from the plant. Do i rake back the mulch or apply it over the top of the mulch. the plants are watered using a drip irrigation system. Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated

Mice

I am just wondering the charge for mice extermination or any helpful hints I can do to try to get rid of these things. I have done traps even finally got to the point of putting poison everywhere . Have not had mice in the past all of a sudden this past year they're coming from nowhere. I'm not sure if anyone does this with covid-19 going on

Buckthorn treatment

I am using a product named ERASER, by Martins. The active ingredient is Glyphosate,N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine, 41%. This product has worked well using it full strength on buckthorn stumps. My question is this, with this product can I treat the stumps year around? My main concern is getting the chemical into the root system. When should I stop treating and when can I restart treatment if year around treatment is not recommended. Thanks for your help. RON

The roots on one side of the tree were severed when we dug the foundation for the cabin. I can not get my arms around the tree. I do not know what kind of tree it is. The foundation was dug on Sept 2. The soil will be replaced by the end of this week. Will the roots regenerate? The roots are not very thick. Some are shallow, most of them are uniform in thickness. Do I need to be concerned about the roots getting into the drainage tile? I have not counted all the roots. There a lots of them. Thank you

Transplanting zigzag goldenrod

Is now a good time to transplant zigzag goldenrod?
I have found a lot of little seedlings near where I first planted last year.
Will they grow, survive, or flourish if I just move them to another area now?
