Folks, I live in Camp Sherman and have a small 1.5 acre pasture area that I am about to level, till, and want to replant with a good cover "crop" that is low maintenance, attractive, and good for the soil. I currently do not have irrigation but may be getting that too. We are in a micro climate over here. Do you have any suggestions for my area?

Can you recommend an effective spray to control a weed locally called goat head? It is a short plant with multiple heads with short very sharp spines that radiate outward. A spray that isn't too persistent. This wet spring has brought up large areas that later this year will be a serious problem. Thank you.

Why do the fruits of my Manchurian Bush apricot trees split and fall before ripening? What can I do to enable the fruits to stay on the tree until they are fully ripened and sweet?
Hi there! I live in the Crooked River Grasslands and took the attached images on August 17th of this year. This sweet little specimen was found hanging out on my chocolate mint, on the flower. I tried searching and asking around about this guy without any luck. I thought it might be a nymph of some kind but really didn't know how to go searching for it. I haven't seen another one like it, either. It was very small.
Hi there! I live in the Crooked River Grasslands and took the attached images on August 23rd of this year. I found these on the flower buds of my large sage brush. They were VERY small, not even handlable. The second images shows what I assumed to be their own eggs they must have recently emerged from. I took a video that I think might be helpful also: https://youtu.be/iHbhPb5DVGU (when reviewing the video on my end it looked burry, but wasn't blurry on my phone when I uploaded it, please direguard and accept my apologies if it is blurry).

I planted this wildflower mix, and I didn't know what this plant was until it bloomed for the first time today (Clarkia?). Upon watering this morning, I find these turd looking worm caterpillars that seem to have populated and decimated the plant overnight! The plant was fine yesterday, with no bugs on it, and this is the only plant that I see these creatures on. Any ideas? And is my identification somewhat correct? Thank you!
