My friend Sandy is the founder of Iron Cupcake Milwaukee, which is a cupcake baking competition held each month with a new theme. This months theme is BEER! Yes, Beer and Cupcakes! I have taken my Mom and Grandma to the events before and it is a blast for people of all ages. You buy a ticket ($2.00 of every ticket goes to charity) and get to taste up to 18 different unique cupcakes from the bakers in the competition. Every baker has to incorporate beer in some way into their presentation. IT'S FUN and I hope to see you there on Monday!
Food Network Cake Challenge Baker, Michelle Garcia, will be their celebrity judge.

I recently spent some time a La Reve...want to see what I enjoyed?

Create a Pest Management Calendar
Is your mailbox filling with next year's calendars? Put them to use managing pests in the garden.
No, I'm not talking about smashing insects with the rolled up calendar. Instead, use them to develop a pest-monitoring calendar for next year.
Take a few minutes to review this year's garden journal. Look for notes on any pest problems you encountered. Make a note to watch for these pests in next year's calendar. This helps with early detection; a key to successful control.
Consider adding notes about the weather and control measures you tried that were effective. Try using preventative eco-friendly measures like barriers and traps to prevent problems. Covering your cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower before the cabbageworm moths are active allows you to prevent damage.
Setting out shallow cans of stale beer will help you minimize feeding damage by slugs and snails during wet weather.
A bit more information: No garden journal? This is a good opportunity to create one that includes your growing successes, failures as well as pest problems. Use a spiral notebook, three-ring binder or computer calendar or spreadsheet. Just make it easy and fun. That way you are sure to keep recording, referencing and putting your gardening experiences to work.
