Green Ash Borer.

We got this morning to ash leaves all over our deck. One would think it is fall the way they are dropping in the breeze. It is a old green ash tree. Is this a sign of serious problems, like ash borer?

Canning pickles

I am making lime pickles. I soaked them in the lime solution. I did the second step of rinsing them with water. It seemed like they were slimy before I put them to soak in water over night. Does that indicate they are spoiled and shouldn't be processed further? I have made them many times in past years. Thank you Jeanette Knudsen, Elk Horn, IA

Strawberry vanilla hydrangea

Why does my Strawberry Vanilla hydrangea only send out branches to its right side? Should I cut it back sharply and let it regrow or what would cause this behavior? It is probably less than 5 yrs. old and 3.5 ft. tall.
