I am preparing a presentation for my college speech class and am running into some difficulties in trying to find "expert evidence" that I can include. I am doing the presentation on goats and cannot find any statistics on the survival rate of kids that were abandoned at birth. Do you have any suggestions or resources that would be helpful?

Blanco County Master Gardeners wish to donate $500.00 towards the Earth Kind Gardens. This donation is in response to Doug Welch's request at the 2014 State Convention. Where do we send the check so it makes its way to the correct account?
How do we make out the check? Thank you, Susan Hamm
I have 10 acres in Blanco, Tx, and would like to put some olive trees on the property.
Can you refer me to a publication or other resource that can help me?
Should I harvest scion wood now before bud break and then graft when trees are growing vigorously? If this is not the correct approach, what is? Thanks
With the wet, cool Winter/Spring we've had here in the Hill Country, the bluebonnets were spectacular this year! After I got abundant, mature seed pods, I mowed my wildflower area and then the Memorial Day rains hit. Now, seven days later, I have thousands of new bluebonnets sprouting where I mowed, and I have a lot of new blooms on plants that already went to seed a month ago but in an area that hasn't been mowed. Have you ever heard of a second sprouting of bluebonnets this late in the year (June)? Will the sprouts that are coming up survive a full life cycle in the Summer heat and make it to seed? Have you ever seen a second wave of blooms on a plant that went to seed a month earlier? If the sprouts that are coming up now are this Spring's seeds, and the sprouts don't make it to seed, does that mean that I won't have any new bluebonnets sprout this Fall? Have you gotten reports of this from elsewhere in Texas? Thanks! This crazy weather is doing some crazy things here in Blanco. Best, Brent
I have an orchard with about 80 trees. I have to mow it every couple of weeks to keep grass and weeds down. Would there be a problem with putting down weed guard and a couple of inches of aged wood chips?

We have identified poison hemlock on our land. We have quite a lot of it. What is the best way to eradicate it? Should we pull it up and burn it? Is it safe to compost? We would prefer not to use herbicides, as it is fairly widespread and we plan to pasture animals on the land in future. Thanks!
