The forgetful Canner

I recently raw packed garden salsa but can't remember if I added lemon juice, I was wondering if I did a PH test that I would know if the fruit was usable.

Poison parsnip

I recently came in contact with something that caused blisters all over my arms, legs and face, and am trying to determine what it was. I had been pulling weeds, without gloves two weeks ago, and didn't notice anything, but one week ago, these blisters started popping up and spreading. There is a plant in this area, which looks like poison parsnip, but the flowers are fading and dirty white, not yellow. How can I identify this plant correctly?

Connecting Land Owners with "Farmers"

I own a parcel of land in Guthrie County that used to be an apple orchard. I have always had an interest in farming but lack the knowledge/skills. To make a long story short, I am wondering if there are any programs that connect people looking for land to farm with property owners that don't have the expertise to do so. I am interested in connecting with someone interested in specialty crop farming versus row crops. Thank you for your time.

silt basins

I'am a director of the Lake Panorama Association. We have several silt basins that are full. I would like know if we can farm these basins. They have many rocks that are 12 inches plus in diameter. I believe if we are going to farm this ground they will need to be removed. I do know there is equipment to remove but I have no idea of the cost of the machine (buy or rent)or the cost per acre to do this (economical to do).
