MILWAUKEE -- Unless you are making big crocks of sauerkraut, you may only be able to use one head of cabbage at a time. Learn how to harvest a head and what to do to slow down the growth of the ones you leave in the garden so they don’t split and rot before you’re ready to use them.

Japanese beetle adults are feeding on roses, grapes, and many other landscape and garden plants. Find out what is worth treating and what treatments might not only be a waste of money but might make things worse.

Do your cucumbers and squashes have plenty of flowers but are short on produce? We will see why you needn’t worry plus learn a little about the “birds and the bees” in the garden.
