Dogs have dug around 2 spruce trees and damaged some roots. When I refill with dirt, is Vitamin B (for plants) or anything else a good idea to water with at the site to treat for shock and stress?

If one were desiring to start a community resource herd of cattle [beef and dairy] and flock of sheep on Adak, what breeds and sources of animals can you recommend? As background, I know Angus have a different feeding pattern strategy vs charolais, not that I'm interested in those breeds, but there must be particular breeds that would do well here.
Good morning; We are a first year peonies farm on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. We have had a very good rate of plants coming up and they appeared to be very healthy. Shortly after the corals set buds I started noticing some yellowing and rolling upward of some of the lower leaves. These now appear to be a wilt of some sort and are spreading. Quite a few plants, mainly Corals and, Festivas have the rolled up leaves. A few black leaves, mostly yellow/brownish, but not dry. The soil is still moist. We have not watered this year. I have attached too many photos but they all seemed important. Many thanks for any advice, pointers, tips Etc. you have to offer. I have lots more photos if needed. Thanks

I have been making my Whole Cranberry Sauce for Thanksgiving and Christmas for years! It's the recipe on the back of the Ocean Spray bag of cranberries - with a twist. I grate the rind of one large navel orange into the water as it comes to a boil before adding the cranberries. My question is: Would I be able to can this recipe to preserve it? My thoughts are that I can proceed as I do for my jams, putting the hot mixture into hot, sterile jars, add lids and rings, and let cool - listening for the 'pop' from the lids to know they're sealed? By the way, this recipe is also perfect for Wild Alaskan Cranberries. The addition of orange peel makes it particularly tasty, too. Thanks - and Merry Christmas! Jamie L Smith Meadow Lakes, AK
