Last Rose of Summer


My roses lasted unusually long this summer, the night before the last hard freeze I picked about 6 or 7 buds, a few opened. This was one of the ones that opened after I picked it.

It's sad isn't it? I just hope we're not in for a winter like the last one! Your rose is very pretty...which rose is that?

That is exactly the kind of rose that I would grow, if I could grow roses. Roses don't like me. So I will have to live vicariously through you.

Writing a note from Muscatine, caught your site somewhere out there, as I sit here watching our first snow fall, are you getting one too.

Was an unusual year for gardening this year. My heirloom tomatoes got a blite and hardly produced before they succumbed. We have a lot of farmers markets in my area of sandy-soiled river bottoms and they had the same problems. Schmidts Farm Market, the oldest farmers market in the state, Muscatine Melons.

Good to run into a fellow Iowan, I'll be back.

yes, those OK it is now or never moments associated with frost. Often for me it is making a big batch of pesto before the basil takes a hit.
