getting rid of monkshood

Hello, My mom and I recently removed some monkshood plants from the yard. We were careful to wear gloves and long pants etc. However, we accidentally stepped on parts of the plant with our shoes/brushed up against parts of it or parts of the shovel used to remove them. Afterward, we left our shoes and the shovel out to wash in the rain and will wash our clothes in the washing machine. Will this be enough to wash all of the poison off our clothes, shoes and shovel or do we need to get rid of those things? Also, one of the plant's flowers was leaning over into our compost pile. Can the dirt where the plants were growing and the compost still be used for our vegetable garden without it being a problem? I know people grow this plant in their flower gardens and are just careful to wear gloves when handling it so maybe I'm overthinking. I don't know how poisonous the plant is . Just wanted some advice on how careful we have to be. Thanks!

Large python as pet question

I want to get a large python, such as burmese, once they get large enough could I just forget the tank or enclosure and let it free roam all day in say a bedroom, would there be any consequences, I ask because a friend of mine has a green anaconda and just let it free roam in his room and filled the bathtub with water and it's still alive.

How to Get Rid of Sumac Trees

How can I get rid of sumac trees? Is there something I can use that will just destroy sumac but not destroy my periwinkle and other ground covers that are around it? I am a homeowner and do not have a pesticide license. Thank you!

snow crown cauliflower

regards:

I just cut a head of cauliflower and the stems of the florets have a purple color to them.

This is the first time I have tried to grow this type of plant in my home garden. I was wondering is this head of cauliflower ok to use and if not what did I do wrong?

Thank You

Onions and their growth

I seem to have a problem with onions the last two years. They start nice but then the leaves become segmented and kind of deformed. I opened the leaf of infected plant and see no signs of insects and i pulled one out and see no visible signs of insects on root.my garlic is approx 10 feet away and is not affected. Varieties are walla walla, copra and candy
