    One-Year (Annual) Fruits?

    :lol: Yes, I know about strawberries. I guess I forgot to list them because I was only thinking of fruits that are typically grown from seed.

    Side dressing fruit trees?

    I would be concerned that there might be noxious weed seeds in the manure that didn't get killed off. You could have a serious weed problem if there is.

    Care of Bare Rooted Plants?

    Who is the seller? I've bought strawberries on eBay before, so I might know a little about them. The best thing I can recommend is planting them in slightly damp saw dust, and leaving them in a sheltered area where it is cold enough to keep them from coming out of dormancy before they are...

    almond tree, how old until first harvest

    It depends on how big/old they are when you plant them. If the trees are big enough, they could produce the first year.

    Vegetable Garden Layout

    I was thinking, instead of having my vegetable garden in rows to orient it like this instead: With a different vegetable in each block. Would that work alright?

    Help sick mango tree

    I would think that it might be the humidity. Looking at the tank, it seems very dry. Mangoes typically live in tropical environments (hot and humid). I would try increasing the humidity. If that doesn't work, try increasing the heat too.

    goji berries

    I've eaten these. The Whole Foods store here has them dried. They didn't taste great, kind of like cranberries, tart and kind of bitter, but not bad with a little sugar. I had them mainly in oatmeal, and a little sugr takes the edge off of them. If they weren't as healthy as they are supposed...

    Choices farmers have to make, you chose

    Most of those also apply to the average zoo. With comparisons that broad, and logic that obscure, you can relate just about anything.
