I want to know the best way to keep weeds out of my vegetable garden
I don't know what this bug is (photo attached), but I have many of them devouring my clematis. What is the bug, and how do I control it?
I have 6 acres of mature fescue that was last fertilized 9/1/2016 with 40- 50 lbs N/ac. The stands were pretty good at 10-12” high with minimal broadleaf weeds and crabgrass. The fields were recently flooded for 3-4 days by Fishing Creek and the grass is now laying over with a fine dirt silt covering.
The ground will be dry enough to tractor over in a few more days. Should I mow the fields when dry enough, and if so to what height?
Will it continue growing through the fall after the mowing - maybe not enough to hay but to graze horses?

A young Japanese maple in the front yard was apparently eaten by something (the new growth is pretty much gone). How can I prevent this, and what did it?
