Shrub Identification

Could you help me with the identification of this shrub. It is a tall plant currently growing about 10 feet high in places. It grows very quickly, with shoots coming up from the ground around the base of the main plant that will grow 6+ feet high in a month or so.

I am canning a mustard pickle recipe from my grandmother. It calls for 1 C. flour to thicken the sauce. I have been told that we should not use flour any longer. Is there something I should use in place of the flour?

I have literally hundreds od dead and dying honeybees on my driveway. What would cause this? Upon gently sweeping them off the pavement, most are alive, but very lethargic. None flew at all, but slowly meandering around. Some are in clusters.

Clusters of perfectly healthy leaves have been falling from one of our oak trees. The small branches appear to have been sliced off at an angle -- similar to the way one would cut flowers to put in a vase. The interior wood appears to be perfectly healthy also. We didn't see squirrels or other creatures in the upper limbs when the last clusters just came down. Any ideas as to what may be going on?

I want to purchase an accurate ph soil meter for home gardening and lawn care. I have been looking at them online and thought it best to get a professional opinion before I buy. I am looking at the Gain Express ZD 06 model but am open to all recommendations you might have. Thank you.

How can we protect ourselves from the hazardous chemicals emitted by outdoor wood burning in our residential neighborhoods? Some neighbors don't follow the simple open burning laws that provide criteria to follow to burn wood in fire pans, pits, & rings. They receive violations, but continue to burn anyway, whenever & where ever they please. Our yards & homes fill with dangerous smoke. We can't enjoy our property inside or outside. What can we do?
