Connor, Great work. You will be knighted someday.

You got most of them right.  Number one is close to correct. It is late winter very early spring.

4 is sand clay and straw

5 would be a crabapple but not the cultivars.  Paw paw and edible dogwoods are good understory trees

6 beets are biennials, so that one is kinda right

7 the angle of the sun is only at about 22 degrees in winter

10 Could you please elaborate?
