We hired a pest control company to exterminate two Yellow Jacket nests. One being in my garden. It was supposed to be safe to use and he said all we needed to do was wash the produce. he sprayed approx. 4 gal.of Talstar 279-3206 between the two nests. I looked up Talstar later that night and found out it's not supposed to be used in gardens. Not safe for produce. My question is- He sprayed the southeast corner (about 6 X 6 area) and the plants in that section got wet. Would the plants(tomatoes & Peppers) in north end be ok to eat. The garden is about 16 X 16.

I received two items in plastic packaging from my local food bank on 10/20/15 that are actually past their expiration date. I know USDA states that packaged goods are good for 1-2 years past the use by date, but I wasn't sure if that was plastic AND paper, or just paper packaging. The items are: Gulf Pacific Premium Whole Grain Brown Rice (16 oz. bag), expired 8/16/15 and Heartland Whole Wheat Spaghetti (2 lb. bag), expired 8/13/15. Are these safe to eat?

watering

My pine is turning brown on the bottom which I don't believe will come back. Am I over watering or under? It's by a glass front door so receives light.

Can you tell what is going on with my Green Mountain maple? See photo..I noticed sap running in the spring, it was starting to form leaf buds and stopped. Now as I look at the tree I can see cankers and oozing on the tree (see photo) Can it be saved? I also notice problems on the nearby Green Mountain trees, not like this but the do have black streaks on the bark ..I have 6 in total.. However they don't look this bad. I live in Kirtland Ohio.. The trees were planted about 4 years ago.

Why has the broccoli this year had so many white florets? They look sickly. Are the white florets edible? I've been cutting off the white florets which has resulted in a lot of wasted food. In many cases I've had to throw out half or more of a crown. The problem seems to have infected conventional and organic growers in all parts of the country. What is going on with this highly nutritious vegetable?
