Roses love Epsom salts in the soil. Not a lot, I would suggest that you go to Growing Roses - How to Plant, Grow and Take Care of Rose Plants in Your Garden - BHG.com for additional information. There are other sites you can google. Just type in "growing roses".

Wonderful looking produce here! I just do a little container gardening - my back yard is almost all lawn so I just use what room I have on the patio. Here's two of my patio tomato plants, they are doing really well for as small as they are. They started producing fruit around mid May and have been giving me a few a week since then.

I also have some green onions, chives, and basil. Would LOVE to have the room for more, but don't really want to give up any lawn space.

Thank you, Kylie. Usually they are all on the patio floor, but I was doing some trimming and checking for worms so set them on the table.

We were thinking of growing some fresh herbs, like Jamie Oliver does, he has them growing in his kitchen

Thanks Addie. I will look at that site. And what a great tip to add Epsom salts. I have never heard that one. I just hope I can have some nice roses that last.

So--out at the farm, the following were picked yesterday:

cabbage, cucumbers, zucchini, broccoli, beans, kale, swiss chard, beets, kholrabi, a smidgen of lettuce, a few peas, and onions.

What can I do with all of those?
