WANTED: Longview/Kelso plant swap

barbe_waApril 25, 2010

I've been promising to host a spring plant trade so I've decided on Saturday, May 15th, unless someone has strong objections. As we did for the fall swap last year, we'll have grilled hot dogs, brats and homemade sauerkraut so those of you who have to drive quite a distance won't have to be concerned about getting home for dinner. LOL. I hope we have a lot of people from up north (Olympia, Seattle?) as well as down south (Portland). I'm trying to develop local interest and it would be great if the locals could see what nice, fun people we all are.

Marking my calendar and hoping to be there with bells on. Gotta start digging again though! :-) Thanks for setting us up with another trade! How'd I miss the fall swap?

I would be interested. I live about 30 min. north up the freeway. I missed the one in Olympia last weekend. I can bring some of my winter sown babies. I can also bring some wild things; yellow stream violets, wild bleeding heart, wild iris.

I'll post directions and a list of what I have to trade later. I'm still trying to get outside to dig and divide - rain, rain, rain! I do have quite a few wintersown babies, too.

Barb, I'm interested, but I can't find anything on here about what time it will run. I also might not have much to swap either, but socializing with other gardeners is always fun! I have a feeling it will probably take me about two hours to drive, so I'm hoping it won't start too early.

The swap will start at 10 AM, but don't worry about being too late. We always have plenty to trade so we're not going to run out. LOL. We are going to grill some hot dogs and brats and there will be plenty of our homemade sauerkraut so those of you who are driving a distance won't suffer from hunger on your way home. We're looking forward to seeing everybody, and I'm going to be digging, potting and dividing all week. What fun!
