Drift Roses are groundcover roses that grow to about 2 ½ feet tall and bloom from spring to frost. Knock Out Roses are larger shrub roses with lots of bloom power that lasts all season long. Both make a colorful addition to your landscapes planted singly or in groups.
Plant roses in full sun (at least 6-8 hours per day). Amend your planting hole with 50% compost/soil conditioner thoroughly mixed with 50% your native soil. Water and fertilize regularly to encourage generous blooms.

|Harvest Time & Home Canning|
|FROM WILMA: While food preservation methods like drying, curing, pickling, and fermenting have deep roots in ancient food cultures, canning was not developed until the 1800’s when Peter Durand of England developed a commercial process to preserve food in metal cans. Home canning was not done until the late 1800’s when J.L. Mason received a patent for glass Mason Jars and Alexander Kerr developed metal lids for sealing.|
Michelle's Canned Jalapenos
From the early 1900’s throughout World War 1, The Great Depression, and World War 2, home-canned foods played an important role in food security. My mother was from a large family and grew up in the depression. She lived on a farm and told of canning in half gallon jars – sometimes over an outside fire.
Home canning declined somewhat around 1950 when freezing became a way to preserve food but made a comeback a few years ago. Some of the younger generation have discovered home canning and sometimes post pictures on social media. I recently overheard a young lady proclaim, “I just love canning”. My 22 year-old grandson just gave us a jar of his ‘Cowboy Candy’ made from jalapeño peppers he grew, harvested and canned.
