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

I own a tea room in Elk Horn, Iowa called Pleasant Thymes. Every 1st Saturday of each month we do a prime-rib or salmon dinner with a theme. On June 1st, we want to recognize "World Milk Day". I'm going to ask a local dairy farmer and his father if they would speak for 20 minutes on generational milking. Does the ISU extension service offer any brochures or special speakers for this world topic? The evening meal, except the meat, will include some form of dairy. Every patron will receive a containier of milk, and our music entertainment will be consisting of old songs about cows and milk. Anything you can add would be fantastic. Thank you so much!
