crabgrass

Asked the local extension for the best time to apply crabgrass prereemergence. Was told that now (on or about March 25 when I called) would be a good time. Received Crabgrass Special Circular 150 a few days later and read that May 10 to May 20 would be the best time for our area - Other PA areas. So which is it for southern Butler County?

I have a tree on a friends property that has leaves like a dogwood, tree shape and bark like an oak and the fruit looks like a deformed apple with tons of little seeds inside each cluster.

Green wood ash

Alright, so i burned some wood in my firepit this evening and the remaining ashes were green instead of black/white/gray. Ive never witnessed this phenomenon over the 22 years ive burned wood. Can anyone educate me on the possibilities? I have pictures that can aid. The first is untouched. Second, unlike normal ash, it was compressible as well as moldable and looked as if it was not burnt. Again, unlike normal ash that just disintegrates when smeared.

Bee Queen

Several weeks ago I started in bee keeping.I have two hives and purchased two bee colonies from Georgia. The bees seem healthy and active. A friend who has bees said he thinks the one hive has no queen.My question is should I purchase a new queen or will the hive create a new queen. If a new queen is created how long will it take?

chicken eggs

We have 3 chickens. They are now laying eggs. We are not sure how often we should check for eggs and whether the frequency should change in the summer months. How should we clean the eggs? Can we use a spray bottle with a solution? If we don't see any dirt on the eggs, do we have to clean them?

pond algea

Over the past few years, our irrigation pond has gotten worse and worse with algea. We have tride a few things to eleviate the issue but none seem to work. I am getting conflicting ideas on how to handle the problem. I was hoping for some help. The pond covers about 1 acre and is about 20 ft. Deep. We have two aerators, not sure on the specs of those. We have used copper and dye yet there is still the algea. Do i need more aerators, more specific algecide?
