The fun began early at Veteran's Park with Milwaukee's very own Evan Christian starting things off.

A very chilly Michelle Branch gave us a preview of her new record available in November called, 'West Coast Time'.

The rain started to fall as Ben Folds took the stage and of course he sang about it. 'The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective' will be available October 11th.
The Fray rounded out the evening with as Issac said, "A night we will never forget." The rain was falling, band members we being sent back to the bus, but Issac and The Fray still delivered! Check out 'Scars & Stories' avail February 2012.

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.
