It matters not what goal you seek
Its secret here reposes:
You’ve got to dig from week to week
To get Results or Roses.

With Mother’s Day coming up, sales from the Front Porch Farm Stand have increased with our customers wanting all sorts of homegrown goodies for their celebration on Sunday.    This week edible flowers are a hot seller, especially these gorgeous baby roses.   Folks are fixing to decorate cakes!

I’ve got a stack of orders to pick for this morning so other homestead happenings and April harvest tally will have to wait till next week.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

    Wow, I did not know baby roses were considered edible flowers. You’ll have to tell us more on how they’re used. I knew rose hips are used as an enhancement to vitamin supplements, but this one’s news to me.

      @A.F. James MacArthur Ph.A.L.: Mostly the baby roses are used WHOLE to decorate cakes. Don’t think it’s wise to munch on a whole rose. But they are sure purty!

  2. Joy Giles says:

    Beautiful roses. My mother is no longer with us, but the peach colored roses she planted years ago at the house my dad in still lives in are in full bloom every Mother’s Day. It reminds us that she is here in spirit and in the children she and my Dad raised.

    • Anais says:

      @Joy Giles: Sorry for your loss. How beautiful and touching for you to share with us how roses bring back memories of ones’s we love and miss.

    I tried my hand at Rose Petal Jam for the first time. I had some huge Mr. Lincoln Roses that were completely open and begging not to be wasted. I hope my mom & my daughter like it. I don’t think either of them have ever tasted Rose Petal Jam. Do you have a favorite recipe you could share, next week when it’s not so busy?
