Kidd O'Shea


Weekdays 5am - 9am
 

You’ve probably met Kidd O’Shea before.  Maybe it was while he was DJing a party in Mequon during high school; maybe it was on a free MIX bus ride to Summerfest; maybe it was while he was out reporting on a fun Milwaukee event for WISN12 News This Morning on the weekend; maybe you handed him a Kleenex at the latest chick flick at the AMC Mayfair.  Don’t be fooled…that IS Kidd O’Shea.

Listen for Milwaukee’s go everywhere / try anything radio guy, weekday mornings from 5-9 a.m. with Elizabeth Kay on The Morning Mix.  And if he smells like vinegar when you meet him, be sure to ask Kidd about it’s natural cleaning properties.  He’ll give you an earful…and then some!

 

 
   

Elizabeth Kay


Weekdays 5am - 9am
 

A graduate of Thomas More High School (Shout out to St. Francis!) and UW-Milwaukee, Elizabeth joined Kidd in June 2009 on The Morning Mix after working at a radio station in Green Bay.  

Elizabeth Kay bleeds green and gold. Growing up as one of four girls in Bay View, her Dad raised her to love sports. She’s a Packer shareholder and tries to make as many Packer games as possible. Her love of sports doesn’t end there; she lives an active lifestyle, frequents the gym and enjoys any outdoor activities.

She loves fashion, relaxing at the spa and traveling. When she’s not busy planning her next trip, you’ll find her reading up on pop culture, watching a reality TV show or HGTV. She enjoys wine, beer, cooking and decorating her house and even visits antique stores in her free time. Listen for Elizabeth on the Morning Mix from 5-9 a.m

A total exercise freak, Jojo loves running and spending time on her boat. An accomplished dancer, JoJo also moonlights part-time with local ballet companies. (Okay, we made that part up...) But the diva stuff? That's a whole different story...

Wine Bottles – Out of the Recycling Bin and Into the Garden
Stop! Don’t recycle those wine bottles, instead give them a second life in your garden. Use wine bottles to create a colorful edge along a path or around a planting bed. Set the bottle, top-side down in the ground.  Individual bottles make great hose guides.   Or create colorful outdoor lighting. Remove the bottom of the bottle with a glasscutter. Place over LED bulbs. Strategically place individual wine bottle lights throughout the garden or use multiple bottles over a string of lights.   Put your glasscutter to work creating a planter. Remove a section from one side of the bottle. Lay the bottle on its side, secure in place, fill with soil and plant.   Or remove the top of the bottle. Invert and place in the bottom of the bottle. The original opening is now your drain hole and the bottom of the bottle is your saucer.   And of course you can always place them on a bottle tree.   A bit more information: Convert wine bottles into watering devices. Punch a small hole into the soil of your container garden. Fill the bottle with water, invert and place into the soil. Plant Nannies are hollow terra cotta spikes that can be set into the soil to hold the wine bottle in place.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Leaf Spot on Rudbeckia
Once thought to be the answer to low maintenance perennial gardens, Goldstrum Rudbeckia’s reputation has been tarnished by several leaf spot diseases.   A bacterial and several fungal leaf spot diseases cause purplish-black spots on the leaves of rudbeckia. Severe infestation can totally blacken the leaves and cause the plants to dieback a bit earlier in fall.  Fortunately most of the diseases are cosmetic and the plants will continue to flower and return each year.   Reduce the risk of this disease by providing adequate light and air circulation around the plants.  Use a soaker hose or watering wand to apply water directly to the soil when needed.    In fall, remove and destroy all diseased plant parts.   If disease is a yearly problem, plant more resistant cultivars like Becky, Cherokee Sunset, Irish eyes, or Prairie Sun.   A bit more information:  Or keep the plants and hide the diseased leaves. Plant something slightly shorter in front of the Goldstrum Rudbeckia plants to mask the discolored leaves, but allow the flowers to show through.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Crown Rot Causing Sudden Wilting and Death on Ajuga (Bugleweed)
Sudden wilting, yellowing and death of ajuga, also known as bugleweed, means crown rot may have invaded the planting. This fungal disease is most common in warm wet or humid weather. It first appears as sudden wilting and dieback in colder climates and yellowing and death of plants in warmer areas. The stems of infected plants turn brown or black and rot.    This disease can be introduced into the garden on infected plants or soil or spread by tools and water. Since the disease is in the soil it is difficult to eradicate.   Remove and destroy infected plants and the surrounding soil immediately. Be sure to disinfect your tools with a one-part bleach and nine-part water solution during and after the process.   If the disease continues to spread or has destroyed much of the planting, it is time to start over in a new location with disease-free plants.   A bit more information:  Reduce the risk of crown rot to healthy plantings by thinning groundcover plantings every few years or before they become overcrowded. And avoid planting crown rot susceptible plants in the bed where the Ajuga died.  Consider amending the soil with compost, peatmoss or coir to improve drainage before planting.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Cool Splash Diervilla Shrub for Shady Gardens
Brighten up the shade with a Cool Splash Diervilla.   This cultivar of the southern bush honeysuckle was selected for its creamy to yellow leaf margins. The variegated leaves are topped by fragrant yellow flowers in midsummer. They help attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden.   Cool Splash is hardy in zones 4 to 8 and grows equally well in full sun or partial shade with moist well-drained soil. Once established, it is heat and drought tolerant.   This small-scale shrub suckers, forming a dense mass of cascading branches. It eventually reaches 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, making it suitable for small space gardens as well as mixed borders and shrub beds.  Use it to mask leggy stems or visually anchor taller trees and shrubs to the ground.   And don’t let the common name honeysuckle fool you. Though a member of the same family, this is not the invasive honeysuckle taking over our woodlands.   A bit more information: Combine Cool Splash with shade tolerant perennials. Hosta, astilbe, Brunnera, coral bells and ginger are just a few. For more shade tolerant shrubs watch my Shrubs Made for the Shade video.   For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Smart Irrigation Month – Planning a Watersense Irrigation System
Watering our landscapes properly can save water and improve our plants’ health. And if you decide to invest in an irrigation system make sure to get the best value and water savings by doing your homework first.   Look for systems that include EPA approved WaterSense irrigation controllers. These are like thermostats only they’re for your irrigation system, adjusting watering schedules based on weather and soil moisture instead of the calendar.   Select a system zoned to water plants at different rates. Established trees require less frequent watering than annuals. Use drip irrigation or low volume sprinklers in gardens to apply water slowly and right where it is needed.   And consult a certified Irrigation specialist that understands how irrigation works, the local environment and will help you comply with any building codes.   A bit more information: Your time invested in research before investing in an irrigation system can reduce water use, repair costs and plant replacement. Experts estimate we could reduce water use by 50% just by eliminating improper watering. If you already have a system, inspect it regularly. Check for and repair any leaks, clear clogs, adjust direction and repair damaged sprinkler heads.
