Invasive in containers- sweet autumn clematis?

I have a shady (light or bright shade) deck and trellis and would like to grow a climbing vine in large containers. I have read that sweet autumn clematis fits the bill but is considered invasive in some regions. Is it a problem in containers in the DC area? The deck is over an alley; there is not a lot of dirt right around it where seeds would grow if they fell. However, if the clematis would be bad news, can you suggest Ny other vines that might grow in bright shade in containers? I am also interested in trying scarlet runner beans but I do not know that I get enough sun. Thank you so much.

I have been growing sour cherries(pie cherries)in my back yard in Washington DC for a few years now. Balaton and Montmorency are the varieties. This year for the first time I had a major pest problem. As the cherries approached ripeness, tiny holes with black bruising around them would appear on the body of the cherries. Upon opening an affected cherry, one could find a very small, slender larva, about 3/8 inch long and very thin. Almost all the fruit were ruined by this pest. Unfortunately, I never identified an adult, so I don't know whether it was a fly, moth or something else. Can you please advise me what pest this might have been and what I can do next spring to defeat them?

I found the bugs in the attached photo all over my lettuce (this is a photo of their underside, they are crawling inside a glass). I've never seen them before. Wondering what they are, and whether they are a beneficial or not. Thanks.

Public TV ratings

How do you count or estmate your public TV viewership (indirect contacts), given as I understand, that public TVs do not participate in Nielsen ratings?

Thanks,

Abnormal bunchy leaf growth on my lemon tree

Abnormal bunchy leaf growth on my lemon tree Hello, I am a university student from CUHK in Hong Kong. My one-year-old lemon tree on rooftop farm just grew out bunchy branches with small leaves and stems very tightly packed. Is that infected with the stubborn disease or it is normal? On 26/9/2019, i observed that 2 branches are growing out from the main stem of the lemon tree. But the 2 ends of the new branches are brown. Then on 11/10/2019, I found that many leaves and stems are growing out from the two branches. It is bunchy and the stems grow so close to each other. You can see that several leaves below the 2 new branch look abnormal and is shiny and hard and not smooth. I am freaked out because the growth pattern of those new branches are very different from the leaves below. The other branches of my plant look healthy and normal. There is no leaf drop for my plant. Its just very weird to have a bunchy top. Do you know what is the problem and how to solve it? Or it is normal? Thank you for your answering! The attached photos are my lemon plant on 15/9/2019, 26/9/2019 and 11/10/2019 where you can see the abnormal leaves then 2 abnormal branches. Should I cut off the head of my plant where those abnormal leaves are located?
