I have 2 white rose bushes that I adopted 5 years ago. They are supposed to be climbing roses, so they were planted on both sides of our front porch to climb up the posts. Well, they’re not hardy enough for zone 5 to be climbing. They’re so finicky, always with some black spot or aphids. Since I don’t like to use pesticides in the garden and I don’t want to baby plants, they will be gone next year – anyone interested in some white semi-climbing roses? They are beautiful and they bloom all summer long.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
