I'm finally getting my trade list updated, more to come as I get them dug and potted. Anyway, I hope so - if the rain will hold off!
Would you like some buttercup anemone? They're not going to be ready to divide for my trade next week, but I think I can divide them in time for yours, if you want them. Also, if the rain holds off, I can divide a blue star creeper, if you want it.
I've updated my exchange list. I'm sure it's not complete and will try to add as I go!

Tammy, I would love some buttercup anemone and blue star creeper. I tried to get the creeper started several years ago, but it didn't make it. I don't know what I might have that you would like and that you don't have already, but as you know, there's always something to dig up around here!
Diana, I know you will be interested in my herb garden and can probably find something to like. Please bring your seeds since I have some leftovers, too. We can do some trading! I tried to trade for some Reisentraube tomato seeds on the Seed Exchange, but everyone was out of them. It will be too late to start them for this year, but I would love to have a few for next year. If all goes well, I should have tomato starts and maybe a few other veggies.
Barbe - Sounds great! I planted some of the Reisenstraube at the same time as King of the North peppers. I got the tags mixed up and they didn't have their second set of leaves and I didn't know what's what. One came up very well, the other hardly sprouted and then died off. I'm waiting for the second set of leaves to find out if I have tomatoes or peppers! LOL All the seed is fresh, so I don't know what happened! Oh well...all part of the adventure, no? :)
I'm bringing some things to your trade that I didn't have at mine. It's a surprise, but I think you'll find a couple of things you like.
Tammy, it seems like you always bring a lot of things that I like!
I can't believe the trade is next weekend already! I still haven't gotten everything squared away from my trade yet! I will try to remember to bring my tool sharpening kit - with open end wrenches, this time! I'll put them in the kit right now, before I get distracted and forget.
Hey Tammy, not next weekend, the 21st, but the weekend after, the 28th. Heavens! I would never get it all done by next weekend - probably won't by the 28th either, but I should be a little further along, I hope.
Whew! False alarm. I might even be ready by then, too.
Mom and I have chocolate flower (Berlandiera lyrata), Stella d'Oro daylily, peachleaf bellflower, Shasta daisy, Autumn Joy sedum, strawberry, assotrted saxifrage, primrose, lily-of-the-valley, Husker's red penstemon, western hemlock, Iris ochreluca, lysimachia punctata, yucca, ajuga, sweet woodruff, bishop's weed, assorted hardy geraniums, Kale, periwinkle, crocosmia (montbretia), sedum, piggyback plant, forget-me-not, columbine, strawberry begonia, tulips, Mary Washington asparagus (roots and seedlings), kenilworth ivy, Victoria rhubarb, potentilla, and probably a few more things.
Tammy, I would love to have one of your chocolate flowers. I don't know yet what all I will have, but hopefully you can find something you like even if we have to dig it!
Barb, I have a chocolate flower with your name on it! Mom wants to know when the Portland Plant Trade that you attend is, and where.
I don't know if they're having one this year since I haven't heard anything yet. When and if I get the date, I'll let you know. It's been a little slow in Portland the last 2 or 3 years so they may have given up. I would enjoy going to one, too.
I've added a few things to my trade list. Check it out.

Tammy, I would also love a chocolate plant. A girl can't have too much chocolate. I'm also interested in saxifrage, hukster red, hardy geraniums, Rhubarb and asparagus
Barb - I'd love some Marshmallow. I am going to try and dig a nice pink daylily I have and maybe a large hosta. I'll bring you some if I am able to accomplish that! Thanks,
Susan, I'll be happy to dig you a start of marshmallow, and I would enjoy a pink daylily and I'm sure Don can always use another hosta for his shade garden.
Barbe - You were right, I won't have any troubles finding something I'm interested to trade with you! I'm interested in the Asclepias speciosa, Marshmallow and Comfry. Also, I'm looking for a specific names Euphorbia. It's called Sunburst. Your unknown euphorbia probably ISN'T it, but it might not hurt to look. :) I have a hosta that needs dividing but don't know what variety it is. I also have some seeds that are great for Winter sowing you might want to see.
Bejoy - I would LOVE some of your Martha Washington Asparagas seedlings! Also of interest is your periwinkle and lysimachia punctata.
I added a few more things to my plant list. Here they are:
Oregano, Greek - I think. :)
Lovage, (Levisticum officinale)
Sweet Cicely (Myrrhis odorata)
Windflower (lavender/pinkish bloom. Hard to control. Careful where you plant it!
Hosta, unknown variety - need to dig
Crocosmia, Lucifer - need to dig
Pat_tea, I would like to trade for your purple clematis - I think I lost one of mine this winter.
Bosapje, I'm sure Don would like another hosta. I don't think he ever gets enough! I'm sure the euphorbia isn't Sunburst - it's a rather common green one, but I think I can help with the rest of your wish list.
Barbe - I'll dig up the hosta this week. It's in a pretty shady spot here and just peeking through the earth.
Can't wait till Saturday!
Looking for any groundcover for full sun, clay soil. Or plants that will do well on sunny hill side.
Hi pat_tea ...I would love a pink blueberry..Veronica speedwell..and the cluster bellflower. Tammy (bejoy2)already posted many of the plants we will be bringing..but also we do have a few more..such as:
Astrantia..Euphorbia..Wood Aster..Heather/white..allium triquetrum...and a red daylily. The ajuga does well here in clay sunny spots..even hilly areas...as do the creeping sedums..with good drainage. We will be bringing both of those. Bejoy
It's almost Saturday! Yay! My transplants for the swap look good. I still have a couple I have to dig and the rain isn't helping any. As far as time goes, I won't be arriving until about 11:00a so save me some goodies!
See you there!
I will be coming by at about 12:45. I have Red China Eggplant (pumpkin on a stick) and Yellow Wonder Wild Strawberry starts to trade.
I am looking for any shade loving plants and herbs, and am especially fond of anything edible. I'm running out of room but that's okay. :-)

I just received an order from FedCo seeds on April 23rd. Too many to list tonight. They're all organic. I have some greens, another tomato and pepper that should do well in short seasons, and a radish that's grown for it's leaf. I grew this last year and it's wonderful. I planted it later than I should have so they were baby greens all winter, then really took off this spring. Some of the greens I orderd this time around, I haven't even heard of. They're from the brassica family and are supposed to be good.
Don't expect me before 11:00-11:30a. I hope that's okay. I have to work evening shift at the hosptial and still be clear headed at nearly midnight. :)
Barb just wanted you to know I was able to dig the daylily and hosta. Looking forward to see your place. I hope to be there around 11:30. Not sure exactly how long it will take me though and I"m always slow in the morning :-)

Oh my goodness Oldherb! I hope I have something of interest to you, because I see several of yours that interest me!
See you tomorrow!!
Oldherb, please let me know if I have anything that interests you. I would LOVE to have a Crandall Black Currant and maybe some Borage. It looks like you have some of the same plants that I'll be bringing, but I have hand made gardener's soap if that interests you. It's a little young and will become more mild if you wait awhile longer before using it, but as I posted elsewhere, I'm already using it and it seems fine for my hands.
I also have many, many, more seeds that I did not list but will be bringing. I have a few scorzonera seeds, Good King Henry, Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry, and a few other oddities you don't see too often.
I look forward to meeting you.
Patty, I would love a "Little Sisters" iris and if you have extra black peppermint, I will take a start of that, too. See you tomorrow!
oh! I completely forgot. I have two pots of walking onions (topsetting, egyptions, whatever they're called). I'll bring them tomrrow.
BARB: the "Little Sister" and mint is yours and I have a surprise for you =-)
DIANA: I will save you out the items you wanted. I am interested in the larkspur, butter bean (to try) and some of that soap.
KRISTELL: The sweet cicely is great for shade (I only brought a few of what I have in seedlings) and the currant will grow in some shade also.
Who is bringing the PINK Blueberry again? I would like some if you want to swap. =-)
Can't wait to see what everyone brings and meet y'all!
Oh and I forgot to put the variegated Yucca on my swap list too. =-P
Have been lurking all week trying to decide if I will come or not. I've loaded up the car and will be there. Connie.
