Apple trees do not form blossoms

I have two apple trees - Harrelson and Sweet Sixteen neither of which will get blossoms. I have only had one apple in 7 years of growing these trees. Any advice would be welcome. I had the soil tested and the report came back fine. Thanks

deluted dish soap spray for tomato's

I have seen others online swear by diluted dish soap to spray onto tomato plants. They claim it helps with pests and also helps plant to absorb water better. Do you agree and at what stage can spraying start ? my plants are about 8" tall and I started them from seed. I think w/ a lil hardening exposure they are nearly ready to go to garden! What is your advise?

livestock vaccination question

We have been vaccinating our heifer calves at one year of age with two shots of Preg Guard Gold FP 10 and then following up annually with a single dose each spring before breeding. I would like to switch them over to a fall vacc. program. I have asked two of our local vets about doing this and one said no problem as long as they were vacc. this last spring and the other said not to do it as they have seen many abortions from using Preg Guard Gold FP10 on bred cows. Can I make the switch to fall and if so can I give a Guardian shot to the cows at the same time I give the Preg. Guard?

All my Asparagus falls over

I planted my crowns 10 to 12 inches deep last fall and it took for ever to come up this spring. Once they started to come up they will grow up about 2 to 3 inches and then just fall over. I have tried to water more, the garden is totally fenced in so I don't think it is animals. Can anyone help?

Sick Oak Trees

We have three Burr Oak( I think) in our back yard in the Southern Black Hills. The leaves are brown on all three and look very sick. I've attached two pictures. I read about anthracnose and am wondering if that's what it is? And most importantly is it fatal? Thank you in advance for your help.
