Weekly Update

Out with the roses. For the last four summers, I have battled Japanese beetles that have feasted on our roses. The pattern goes like this: The roses are amazing in April, May and into early June. Then, no matter what I do, the beetles win for two months, though I pluck hundreds into soapy water, and then the roses flower again and are stunning in September and October, and often into November. The invasion this year has pushed me over the edge. They are now consuming the leaves from the rhubarb as well. The rhubarb leaves are poisonous to humans, but clearly are a delicacy to the beetles. So, away the rose bushes will go, as I think they hold the magic elixir.
