Although contested by some, it is obvious to those who live with and love animals, that animals have emotions. Animal emotions can be considered in the same categories as those of humans: grief, love, anger, disgust, fear, etc., although their issues within those categories may be different from human issues. In general, emotional issues of animals, in our clinical experience, have fallen into two main categories: Health (their own health, that of the other pets in the family, or of...

Exotic Bird Farms

Exotic bird farms may consist of a few aviaries in the backyard, a few cages in a room or basement, or many cages in a separate building or outdoors. Aviculturists representing most of these examples have made application to and become certified by MAP. The goals of these individual aviculturists, or bird farmers, are quite varied. Some have small collections of very rare and expensive birds. They wish to maintain these birds in good health, and perhaps they may breed. Youngsters might be held back for future stock, or be sold or traded. Although income from these...

The sunflower may be one of America's unsung heroes. One of the few cultivated plants native to North America, it is believed that wild sunflowers covered thousands of square miles of land that is now the western United States. Sunflower remains have been found in North American archaeological sites dating from as early as 3,000 B.C. The center of origin for wild sunflowers is considered to be the Western Plains of North America, but the ancestors of the cultivated type have been traced to the Southwest or the Missouri-Mississippi River valley areas. The first breeders of sunflowers appear to be...

Researchers compared the results of removing middle-aged canes, oldest canes, and a mixture of the two, and found that removing up to 40 percent of the oldest canes...

Vegetable Gardening: Faba Bean, Fava Bean, Broad Bean, Horse Bean

Fava beans are available only a few months of the year in areas that have a representation of people with Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern heritages.

As with limas, the pods are edible only when they are very young and immature. As a rule, the pods are discarded. Fava beans, if available, arrive in spring and are out of season by early summer. California and New Jersey produce most...

Crabapple - Spring Beauty

In planting always dig a large hole, two to three times the size of the root ball or container. In setting the young trees make sure it is no deeper than it grew in the nursery. To help funnel water from rains or your garden hose make a 3 - 4 inch ring of soil 12 - 15 inches away from the trunk. Use a 3 inch mulch of pine straw, leaves or pine bark to help maintain a more uniform soil temperature and moisture level as well as reduce weed problems. Water thoroughly after planting and water each week...

Planting on Your Septic Drain Field

Select less aggressive species. By selecting trees with less aggressive roots, such as those listed in the table on the next page, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of your trees disrupting the drain field. Plant trees as far away as possible from the drain field. If you want to be absolutely certain that tree roots will not intrude into your drain field, trees should be planted at least as far away as their estimated root spread at maturity. One way to estimate this is by the ultimate height of the mature tree. For example, a weeping cherry may be...
