Can I graft any citrus to another citrus?
I also started a garden and planted a bunch of brassicas this winter... kale, collard greens, swiss chard, etc.. SOMETHING ate them all up. I thought it was cabbage worms and maybe it was but I looked and looked and could not find any. Anyone have a clue what it might be? It's not rabbits.. it's definitely an insect of some sort because the leaves look moth eaten with holes everywhere... what can i do?!

Glad you didn't remove all the trees and shrubs - they're giving you a cooler, moister microclimate and are a big plus. lifting canopies a bit over time maybe worth while but you're not short of sunlight !!
only remove what you can replace straight away - "slow and steady wins the race" and all that
Why are American gardeners so fond of English ivy ?? its a pain in the butt here, seems an odd choice of plant to take out to the US .............. sorry on behalf of English men every where !!
once you've removed the top growth of ivy ( I use an old mower) then chickens will clear the remnants as it grows back, if you keep them on a small area at a time. But you'll have a big seed load in the soil that'll regrow over the years ............ get a good hoe and keep it sharp
I've got flea beetles too they're a pain but if you plant out seedlings a bit bigger than usual and space further apart it helps.
Good luck and keep us posted
