Unicorn rabbit

My MoMA rabbit has had a small growth near her nose for over a year. Started off looking like a skin tag. It would get a little larger, then shrink back down. It's quite large now and very hard like a fingernail. It does not seem to bother her or get in the way of accessing food & water. I've read a bit about what it is on the interwebs-- rabbit papilloma is my best guess- but I'd like another opinion:)

Codling moth

I have a home garden and small orchard. Last season the apples of one tree had small brown tunnels burrowed into them with small surface blemishes. Could this have been caused by an insect other than a Codling moth? How can I be sure and what is the most effective organic approach to get rid of it? Thanks for the help, Ida Pacheco Joseph, OR

Lilac tree in trouble

I have a young lilac tree I planted last fall. It has done well until very recently: It's leaves are curling. They have black spots developing and look like something might be nibbling them, except that I can't find any insects. I tried a home brew of water with oil, dish soap and a touch of vinegar. As I rubbed some on the trunk and branches, I found grainy stuff, especially in the places where branches leave the trunk. What might this be? Also, would rose food be good for my tree?

lawn removal

what is the best way to remove a lawn and use the area for a garden? Digging it up would require a lot of labor, but using a chemical to kill the grass may not be the best choice as there are plants close to the grass that I want to keep.

Powdery Mildew on Pine Bark bush

I plan to dig out my pine bark bush that is infected with powdery mildew. How do I protect another bush that I hope to plant in that same spot? How do I stop the spread to my other bushes? Are there mildew spores in the soil? Do I need to sterilize the soil? And if so, what do you recommend?
Thank you for your help.
