Q: After we had that big rainstorm early this week, our driveway and sidewalks were covered with very large grub worms. What are these and how do we control them
Q: My husband’s ears seemed to perk up when my gardening friend lamented that her “Naked Ladies” were about to bloom in her front yard. I understand that this is some type of flower. Can you tell me more about the flower?
Q: My eggplant I planted early this summer was supposed to be purple. However, our eggplants have turned yellow. What causes them to turn yellow
