HAVE: For Spring 2011 Olympia Swap (Pics)

dawiff(z7 WA)April 4, 2011

Here's what I have to trade at the swap, coming up sooner than you think!

Barb, Tammy and Marie were so good to me last year at both swaps, when I had almost nothing to swap, due to having a brand new garden. I hope they can all find something on my list that they'd like to have!

Tomatoes (Good size plants, but will probably still need hardening off, numbers in parentheses are days to harvest)


3 Oregon Spring (65-75)

1 Grushovka (65)


1 Anna Russian (70)

1 Gogoshari Striped (80)

1 Black Krim (75)

1 Tigerella (76)

1 Ukrainian Heart (85)


(More than one of each of these peppers, just not sure exactly how many yet)

Black Pearl ornamental pepper (this is actually edible, but has a Scoville unit rating of 30,000+, so it is very HOT)

Early Jalapeno


2 Fava Bean Plants (Windsor variety)


Variegated Vinca (we've been here about a year and a half, it was already growing in the garden and so far it hasn't spread much)

3-4 Colrain Red Monarda (gets about 4-5 feet tall)

2 Arum italicum 'Jack Sprat' (two pots with two little corms in each, this is a cute Arum with little burgundy splotches on the normal veined leaves)

1 red Elderberry

2 Rhododendron macrophyllum (the native Pacific rhodie, little rooted starts)

2 orange native honeysuckle (Lonicera ciliosa)

1 red osier dogwood

Variegated Vinca

Colrain Red Monarda

Arum italicum 'Jack Sprat' (This is what the leaves will look like when the plant is mature, the ones I have for the swap are much smaller)

Hi dawiff, I would love one of your black pearl ornamental peppers if you have enough. Is there anything on my list you would like?

Barbe, I am planning to bring a handful of them, so if you'd like more than one, no problem.

Hi There,
I'd love a Tigerella and your 2 favas. Anything special you're looking for? I don't have a list up yet but plenty of things coming up now that I could dig. Thanks,

I'll put your name on the Tigerella and the two fava bean plants.

I'm really into the red/orange/purple/yellow color combination this spring for some reason. So anything with leaves or flowers in those colors will suit me, I think. Especially, Heucheras and ornamental grasses. Anything with dark purple leaves or chartreuse leaves. I just picked up a purple-leaved Euphorbia at McLendon's this morning, which I love, it has purply leaves and yellow flowers. Stuff like that.

I also like natives, I have a native area that I'm trying to fill. But don't worry, for the most part my plants will be there for the taking.
