Kali...I am lucky my neighbour has lots of very old fashioned roses, scented (have been in the ground for 50 years!) and she gardens organically, like me, so I know there are no sprays on them. the highly scented ones are best, any colour, but pink and red do the best. I got the idea from another Oooobier in the group 'Edible Flowers'. This is the first time I've made rose petal jam...and it's delish! I doubt they would freeze well, Kali, but I haven't needed to try it. Sorry I can't be more help.

tomorrow i need to plant up my pomegranate seedlings, they are around 6 inches high. They are part of the plan to have the only commercial pomegranate orchard in NZ (at least I think there are no others). I also need to sow a few hundred seeds in pots to catch up with what I did not do last week. And the veggie patch is a disaster area, it has been much neglected, I need to do something with that.

what kind of roses do you use for rose petal jam? I only have a few but they are nicely scented, does it matter what kind they are and can you keep them say in the freezer till you have enough? do you mix the petals with anything else for volume?

Been out first thing this morning and Comfrey tea'd all my tomatoes. Tied the larger ones again, as they're fruiting. Planted out a large lemon scented geranium. Made some rose petal jam.

My darn spinch has gone to seed and is still very small so think i will stick with the perpetual spinich as that does really well around here.

Planted out more tomatoes last night when it was cooler...Russian Reds, Beefsteaks and Bloody Butchers. the beans I sowed last week are popping up, as are the beets, radishes, corn and more lettuces. I have tomatoes forming on my early planteds (Angela and Black from Tula) and the cucumbers and squashes are going nuts after this hot spell we've had.

mmmm, brocolli from our garden tonight - purple too! and broadbeans, skins off and stirfried with capsicum and asparagus and courgette (not from our garden) with wilted spinach (yes, from the garden) on top. Very nice with a little feta... and plenty of fresh herbs (from the garden!). Yum!! I love this time of year, and this weather.

Yum...your broccolli and spinach dishes sound just delicious! I need to pull some of my tomatoes out of the freezer and make a good sauce to pour over pasta. It's definitely a comfort food for chilly late fall days.
