“R” is for Rosehip!

If you grow roses in your garden, you may get the added benefit of rosehips, a cool-cat fruit that packs a healthy punch! Rosehips are the rose plant’s seed pod/fruit, although most home gardeners don’t get many as we prune back our roses to encourage strong blooming.

Consequently, if a tomato is a fruit, is ketchup a jam!? Read more…
