How to prune French Scotch Pine seedlings to encourage low limb growth and minimum height. We want to use some as live Christmas trees with minimal exposed trunk. HAve several hundred seedlings which are about 24" tall plus a 12" root mass. Will it grow fatter if we lob off the top? I have read where topping risks weaker lateral branches and insect invasion. Thank you.

I'm planning to can a tomato sauce using Amish paste tomatoes, beginning this afternoon. I've used this recipe several years, it's from a reputable source. My question: I won't have time to finish canning today. I can easily get the tomatoes peeled and chopped a bit. If I cook the sauce with dried spices day, can I reheat thoroughly and then can in sanitizes jars, in two days? I'll be using citric acid. Should I use the boiling water bath, or pressure can? Thanks so much! LYnne

I will be canning a tomato sauce using Amish paste tomatoes, beginning today, using a recipe I've used several times, from a reputable source. My question: I won't have time to finish canning today. I will get through the skinning and core removal, approximately 25 pounds tomatoes. ID like to begin cooking the sauce today. Is it safe to begin cooking the sauce, with dried herbs, then reheat thoroughly in 2 days, and can then? I will be using citric acid, sterilized equipment, and probably will pressure can. Thanks for your help! Lynne

I'm having an issue with disease on the majority of my pepper plants. The leaves have brown patches on them from the ends of the leaves to spots on the leaves. Is there anything that can be sprayed that will be effective this late into the disease cycle. Some look better than others but it have moved into leave drop on some. I have pulled and discarded the worse plants as not to spread but trying to figure out what can be used as a fungicial spray that is sold in the garden center although I would prefer not to spray anything at all. I have straw around the plants so no to get soil slashing up on the leaves. I did not take a picture of the plants but I can tonight if that would help

What is this insect I have on large established hemlock in my yard as well as a large Fraser fir. The needles turn yellow and then the branch dies. It started at the bottom. I am assuming a scale but it is unlike anything I have see before. I have never seen this insect before and have been in the garden center business for 30 years. Thanks for your help.
