Capital Report: The 2014 Veto Session

by State Sen. Brad Lager

by Tim Baker, Regional Horticulturist

Last September, I wrote a column about a new insect pest of fruits, the Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD). This is a tiny fruit fly, which creates havoc by laying its eggs in fruits such as blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, and others. When the eggs hatch, the larvae eat their way through your fruit, ruining its quality.

by Tim Baker, Extension Professional and Horticulture Specialist

In late July and August, you can sometimes see beautiful, showy flowers which are over a foot off the ground supported by a single stalk.
