Q I have a small backyard garden and plant broccoli and cabbage every spring and fall. I have done this for many years, but this past spring only a few plants headed. This fall, they are big and beautiful plants, but no heads. What am I doing wrong or what is happening?

Q I have a pear tree that is 4 or 5 years old. It came up between two Kieffer pears, but it doesn't look like them. This year the tree had fruit but it was produced in small clusters about the size of grapes. The coloring is like a pear and they taste pear-like. What do you think we have?
