Land cover 2100 ft mountain

I'm am currently clearing black berries and poison oak on 7 acres with a seasonal creek through it. After clearing I want to plant a grass for soil cover. I have read that will help curb the regrowth of poison oak.

Size Is Not The Issue

From https://homeguides.sfgate.com/yellow-squash-green-92287.html, can you please update your article at https://ask.extension.org/questions/138176 so that your discriminatory anti-artist phrase, "use a small artist's brush to transfer," reads, "use an artist small brush to transfer," so that your such grammatical error does not scare the bees away from the squash, as the yellow squash, zucchini, and sweet onions at the grocery stores are growing, perhaps from reduced pollination, painful needles? I do not really know how such an error on your part might be making the bees avoid the squash in the farm fields, but, just in case, can you please correct such error, anyway, as I would certainly enjoy getting back to including plenty of assorted fresh raw vegetables in my fat loss diet?

Bugs in house!

I see bugs on the beds around the house! There was also a ton of different bugs in a second hand carpet I had for about 5 months. Are they bed bugs? What are they? How can I get rid of them? The 1st and 3rd photo are the before and after I killed it. The middle one is the one I see most often, but when I kill the middle one it is just black not orange.

Do Apples Absorb Toxins from Soil?

Hi - I am living in Oakland California. The apple tree in my yard produces wonderful apples. I don't know much about the quality of the soil in which the tree is planted. The area has been used for some parking over the years (probably just for the four unit building on the property) and, because the house is turn of the century, I'm sure the house and surrounding houses were painted with lead paint.

I read that the apples don't absorb the toxins and that the toxins are caught in the stems. Sound fishy to me. Any soil or fruit testing I should do, or do you think the apples are okay to eat?

Thanks so much.
