Thursday on Lake Effect: Brahms' Birthday, Cheat Sheet on Heirloom Crops and Wisconsin IKEA

Thursday on Lake Effect:

The Milwaukee Symphony orchestra celebrates the 183rd birthday of composer Johannes Brahms with performances of both his third and fourth symphonies. Our gardening contributor talks about a fast and innovative way to prep your soil for growing things this Spring. Then, we give you a cheat sheet on heirloom crops you can plant or buy. Then, with IKEA planning a new location in Wisconsin, we learn what makes it so Swedish. And writer Chris Cleave shares his latest novel, set in World War II England.
