In choosing between asphalt shingles or metal roofing, which one would most likely help with a cooler attic? Premise: Cooler attic (AC ducts in attic), thus a lower electric bill.
I wonder why a plant based compost is recommended for Earth Kind roses. I was getting ready to incorporate some well aged cow manure and now am not so sure I should go with it. Why no animal compost? I need also to add that our soil is non existent. We have what is termed sugar sand by our neighbors, who have the same. Very fine sand. Great drainage.. poor nutrition. I
Thank you very much.. and thank you for your earth kind roses..
I know that using a subsoiler will help aerate clay areas of a field, but are there any other things that I can do to help it turn into better topsoil? I'm in Lee county, and the fields are on a gentle slope. I only have 10 acres. I feel like any fertilizer I put on it runs off in the rains that have been pretty substantial at any one time lately around Giddings.
Perhaps just aerating it every 2 or 3 years will help? I have cattle on it so I plan on doing a few acres at a time while hot-wiring it off for a few weeks in the early spring.
Lee County TX pastures and grazing almost 5 years ago
In early 2015 I emailed a question about implementing something to control Sand Burrs in an improved coastal field, You advised to spray 1.5 ounces of Pastora per acre in March 2015 as a pre emergent. I did this and got about a 98% effective rate. I did the same thing in March 2016 with very poor results (20% effective). I shredded the pasture in August and where I shredded nothing but sand burrs grew. Can you offer some advice on what went wrong and where to go from here.

I have a 1/4 acre area I want to plant with mostly Cowpeas, California blackeye peas, Lab Lab, and Soybeans in very sandy soil. When preparing the seed bed, is it best to use a Cultipacker (usually separate 9" wheels w/ small nubs) or a Roller (one piece usually smooth surface) when planting in loose, sandy soil?
These last three years sand burrs seem to be taking over my hay field. I spray once a year with Grazon P+D and every other year with Cimarron Max. Can you recommend a pesticide for the sand burrs?
