composting and mulching vegetable garden, no tilling

I have 10-year-old 36' x 36' vegetable garden. Most veggies grow just fine, but the weeds drive me nuts (and I am too old to pull weeds). Stopped tilling three years ago, but covered garden with 2 inches of mulch. This year my plan is to first lay down 3 to 5 inches of compost (grass clippings and munched leaves, 1 year old), with 2 inches of mulch (grass/leaves 2 years old) on top of that. No tilling. Will cover any growing weeds with fresh grass clippings, in aisles or near the plants. I mow several neighbors' grass and save the grass for my garden. Any comments or suggestions regarding my plan. Or your suggested plan?

I have heard that tomato do well with epsom salts. They disolve the salts in water and then water the plant. I was told they need the magnesium Is that true ? and if so how much do you use? Our plants are in pots. thank you Jody

I am in the Sandstone Flower and Garden Club. We have two weed issues. One is quack grass (mainly in our day lilies). The other is chickweed. We got it in quite a few of our gardens in the last 2 years. We've tried digging it and spraying with round-up, to no avail. Is there some other chemical to get rid of both of them, without killing the perennials in our gardens? Of course, I'd rather NOT use poisons, but know it's the only solution - at times. We're totally open to all suggestions for the upcoming year. Thanks - Dorothy

Apple tree fungus

We have small, white mushrooms growing on the trunks of established, semi-dwarf trees. Additionally, on several branches there is a leathery white fungus that covers 8-12 inches on the under side of the branch. One of the trees has lost nearly all of its leaves. Is there anything that can be done to save these two trees? Thank you, Dawn

Replacement for Ragweed

We're looking for a perennial plant to replace the ragweed on our property... it gets up to around 8 feet tall and we like the privacy it provides from our neighbors. We don't want to make any obvious changes like privacy fencing or a row of trees. The area is wild/natural so we want something that will blend in. It gets full sun and is near a septic mound.

Honeycrisp rabbit damage

I have some 5 yr old honeycrisp apple trees that got damaged by rabbits this winter. The snow got above my protectors and the rabbits ate all the bark, lesson learned! I'm wondering if I can still promote growth from below the damaged area where there isn't any damage? I understand that it has to be above the original graft but not sure if it is possible or not. Thank you, Jerry Gibson
