Purple Tomatillas

I have a ton of these things. I'm wanting to water bath can them and/or salsa made from them. I have seen approved recipes using the green ones, but am not sure I can replace with the purple. Not sure theyre as acid as the green ones.

identify this shrub

I will enclose a pic of leaf very similar to those on an unknown multi trunk shrub growing here in Eagle Creek 97022. I didn't plant it, but it IS growing where I did plant a witch hazel long dead now. It is growing really fast (prob over 5' just since spring), in a wet area in sun, and don't think I want to keep it. Could be invasive??? Help!!! Thank you! Sharon

round up

Is it a normal practice to use roundup on grain crops to time the harvest for consistancy and moisture content?

I realize this question should not have been asked in this forum. Sorry.

Italian plum died - suckers continue

How do I deal with continueing suckers? given your reply -More than likely, your Italian plum was grafted onto a root stock, which provides hardiness and growth regulation, but is not the tree you selected for the fruit production. These suckers may or may not be an edible plum (sometimes they use other Prunus). I would not recommend that you train the suckers, as it will likely never result in a nice tree. Plus, root suckers can be structurally unsound, since they are generated from root systems.

Unfortunately, it sounds like you will have to replant.

We have Arborvitae that are planted in the SE corner of our backyard, they get filtered sun and also are partially covered by Fir tree limbs that hang over our fence. They were planted last year around August 2014. We have been told Arborvitae needs full sun, is this correct, do you have any suggestion as to what the problem might be. We want to replant but are not sure if this is the right location for them
