My Tree peony turned a beautiful red in June/July, like it usually does in September. The leaves didn't drop or look shriveled. These are not "spots" of red, but the whole leaf is red.

I have an 30 year old ornamental cherry tree that is the center piece of our yard! It has been losing some of it's larger/older branches over the years. I'd like to know if it is possible to graft more branches to the trunk so it might recover it's beauty for years to come.
I have a plot of soil that we need to preserve for secondary drain field - about 800 sq ft. We are required to plant it with something that will prevent erosion and without deep root systems. The building dept suggested grass but we don't have a good water source and I don't plan to have to maintain watering mowing fertilizing. The property is very visible from the main road and is commercial. Any suggestions?
Attached is a photo of a parking spot that was paved next to an Oregon Oak. This was done 9 years ago. The tree is showing signs of stress: not fully leafing out, lots of dead branches. The parking spot covers almost 1/2 of the trees critical root zone. Would removing the pavement help the tree, or is it too late?

I have a recipe I really love -- a green tomato chow chow (relish) -- that instructs to store in jars with lid & band in fridge, use within 3 weeks. I would like to be able to keep longer. How can I adapt the recipe or change the canning method to safely do this?
I live at the bottom of the hill of an old pear orchard that's no longer there. I have created several large vegetable gardens on my land, but have not tested the soil. I have young children who play in the garden and often eat the soil. How can I test for insecticide residue and heavy metals?
