Tiny Black Hopping Insects

Please help identify tiny black insects that are congregating by the thousands primarily on wood surfaces surrounded by native plants. They are smaller than a pepper flake, no coronation other than black, no striation, and they hop when agitated. A collection in a sealed plastic bag has them hopping like popcorn. Cannot locate their source on plants or ground; no visible nests.

Single-stem Rhubarb

Can you identify a rhubarb-like plant where the stalks grow from a single tall stem? Its crown does not flower but just produces more stalks as it grows taller. I have photos but don't see an icon on your site to upload. Thank you. When I submitted, the Browse IMG Icons came up - here are the photos.

How dry does corn need to be to save the seeds?

Saving corn for seed. I planted a non-hybrid corn this year thinking I would save seed for next year. The cobs are drying in a barn, but are not completely dry, with the onset of freezing weather I am wondering if the cobs should be brought inside to finish drying, and just how dry should the kernels be? Does corn have to stratified to germinate? Thank you.

gooseberry bush fungus

I HAVE A HUGE GOOSEBERRY SHRUB THAT FLOWERS ENTIRELY EVERY SPRING. THIS SHRUB ABUTS A MATURE SPRUCE TREE. I UNDERSTAND THAT HAVING THESE TWO NEAR EACH OTHER WILL CAUSE A FUNGUS TO OVERTAKE THE GOOSEBERRY AND IT WILL NOT BEAR FRUIT (which it hasn't for yrs). IS THERE ANY HOPE IN CURING OR PREVENTING THIS FUNGUS? THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
