Can you identify this plant? Desirable or weed?

This looks like it was purposely planted along with two others in a church garden. No sign of flowers but seeds are forming as seen in the second photo. Thank you.

wind/cold damage to potted fig tree

I recently took my potted factory back outside since the weather has warmed up. Unfortunately the recent cold snap and Highwinds damaged all the leaves. How can I take care of the tree to keep it healthy?

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...

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.
