I have image of spider with two white bars on her bottom side. Another image of a plant that I’d like to know is it a weed or plant . Is baking soda good to clean grease off the stove top?

Hi there,

It's difficult to identify your plant without seeing a sample, but my best guess is that's a black locust. Whether you consider it a weed or not depends on whether you want it growing in your landscape -- if you don't want it, it's a weed; if you do want it, it's not. Here's some information on the tree: https://www.oardc.ohio-state.edu/weedguide/single_weed.php?id=65

As for the spider, can you send a photo of it? If you have more than one photo, that would be even more helpful. I only received the picture of the plant.

I'm afraid your question about baking soda is outside my expertise as a master gardener volunteer.

Best regards,
Mary Beth
