Red Peony

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.

grafting

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.

ground cover

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?

Oak trees and pavement removal

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?

Canning for shelf vs. fridge

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?

soil test for heavy metals

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?
