Accepts questions from anywhere.
Last year about mid summer my vineing plants such as pickles and cucumbers in my garden began to turn "gray" brown and kind of dusty then slowly they would die. I couldnt see any bugs or anything on the plants . It continued to spread over at least 1/2 of the garden. Someone said it was a worm or something and in the spring I needed to cover the garden with black plastic and allow the sun to "bake" out the bug. Do I need to do that? I compost and don't want to use many chemical but want my garden to grow. i would appreciate any recommendations

We are currently renting our alfalfa fields. The farmer renting the fields wants to hay one more time this season. I have told him that the cut off date for haying was Sept 15. He keeps talking about growing hours, but I cannot find any details on this or if this is a good idea on how to base the end date of haying. He last hayed on Sept 12th.

A long time ago I took my children to a parks and wildlife event and the lady in charge stated that one could tell which type of oak it was based on the main direction the branches went (mostly up, mostly straight out, mostly something else (curly?). I would like to have that information again so I can enjoy recognizing Ohio's oak trees.

My Morency cherry tree dropped its leaves a week ago. We planted the tree two years ago and it has grown and up to a week ago, looked healthy. We live in the country by a corn field which is 30 feet away but we have other trees in that area and they were not effected if it was over-spray. There is no evidence of mites or fungus on the leaves. There are shoots coming up from the base of the tree.
