    Sword Ferns and Fiddle Heads

    Today I cut back some Sword ferns and was surprised to see that the Fiddle heads were coming up already. You can eat the Fiddle heads they have a mild nutty taste. (but you can only eat a few from each plant because they eventually turn into the new leafs) Also I...

    I Am Trying

    This Spring I planted two rose bushes.  I think they are called Queen Elizabeths.  I got a couple of blooms this year.  I hope it gets better next year. That is all of my garden.  I will plant some more next year.
