This year, I have planted some potatoes out in tires. I know that potatoes will grow in tires but why do people plant potatoes in tires? Is it because they take up less space? Because they look cool? Thanks!

Is it safe to eat medicated turkeys?

I have a turkey we have treated with metronidazole for blackhead. Will we be able to eat her? If we can, how long should we wait after treatment? She was also wormed with albendazole. Same question for that medication.

Oak leaves

I have two oak trees and something is eating the leaves almost as fast as the tree can produce them. I don't see webs and what leaves I can reach, I don't see anything. Ideas? Something to try? The trees are 20 years old so they are established and fairly large.

wild animal scat

i was keeping my barn cat food, both dry and canned, in the barn in a sealed container until a wild animal figured out how to get into the container, at which time i moved it up to the house, but kept the canned cat food in a box, still in the barn, thinking it would be safe. think again. i went down for morning farm chores to find a dozen cans opened and empty, and another 8 to 10 with what looked like something tried to open the cans, with the flip openers either bent or completely off. there was three piles of scat. picture enclosed. i'm thinking this is from a pretty big raccoon. each one of these poopies pictured is about the size of a large tootsie roll. could you verify what animal this came from ? ... thanks. much appreciated.
