comment What kind of tree is this and what's wrong with it?
@J.Musser,not sure what the second part of your comment means, but we'll have to agree to differ on this one - this infection looks much worse on Acer pseudoplatinus than it does on other maples, but it still affects other varieties.

comment How many mint seeds should you plant?
@FiascoLabs: in my experience, letting any mint loose in the ground is a big mistake - they need root rhizome barrier 18 inches deep.

comment Are my tomato plants damaged by a chemical or a disease?
@BrianSurowiec - so all the tomatoes were together when the symptoms appeared, but only some were affected? Were they randomly spaced, or together (say on the edge or one side?)
