By farmerdill on Sep 27, 2016 6:05 PM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Jetsetter')

A 1998 introduction from Petoseed (Seminis). An early round red in the 6-8 oz class. Compact determinate that sets a large crown set, very productive and good flavor for an early (72 day) variety. Good disease package. Hybrid. Good for a concentrated early crop as it peters out about the time maincrop varieties come on line.

By csandt on Sep 27, 2016 8:56 AM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Savannah')

I planted three own-root 'Savannah' bushes from Chamblee's Rose Nursery in spring, 2016. I enjoyed beautiful foliage and wonderfully fragrant blooms intermittently from June 7 through fall without the use of any pesticides. The blooms did not suffer brown edges as did 'Beverly' and 'Wedding Bells'.
