lowering pH for blueberries

I'm planning a 4 x 12' area for 3 bushes. I tested my soil this week and came back with a pH of 7.5. I know blueberries need a range of 4-5. What can I add to the soil to lower the pH and what amount per square foot should be applied? Can/should this be tilled into the soil? Also, what is recommended for mulch? Pine needles are ideal, but I don't have access to any? Thank you in advance.

What is this plant?

Fast growing, thick stalks, soft leaves with small green and white flowers with purple filaments. Growing in landscaping on my new property, no idea what it is. Grows like a weed.

daffodil difficulties

This spring very few of my daffodils actually blossomed. I noticed a lot of them only came up a couple of inches and didn't get any taller. What could have caused this? A relative in Wisconsin had the same thing happen this year.

Rose Leaves curling

The Watertown Master Gardeners were working the Farmers Market and a lady brought up this climbing rose bush sample. (see photo). The leaves are curling up. She didn't notice any bugs. She waters the rose regularly. She doesn't know of any spray that would have hit it. The curling is on the established part of the plant (middle). She has had the rose for several years. She uses a systemic fertilizer/pest control.

Cutting Back Asparagus

When can I safely cut back my asparagus? I am still getting an occasional stalk from the small patch. Is that normal? Any other tips to keep it growing & productive will be appreciated.
