Good Day,
I am planning to come to the fall swap, can someone send directions? Also I need some ideas of what kind of plants usually get swapped. ALL of the plants I got at the Morse swap are thriving, you are all great gardeners!! Thanks again for the good time,.
Looking foreward to the fall swap!!

I'll be there.

Doris, the salvia sounds like a winner to me. I have the some of those blackberry lily seeds that Elphi's looking for, too. I can also bring some other self-sowing flowers. Who knows what else will turn up?

I might have a new gardener with me - two people have expressed curiousity and thought they might want to come.

Hi everyone: It doesn't look like I'm going to be coming to the fall swap. Don't have much to trade. We have been especially dry and things don't look good either. Have been busy at my daughter's for 1 1/2 weeks and then am keeping my granddaughter this week while she goes to our bible school. Maybe I'll just feel like a drive by 8/19. If I don't make it all all, I will plan on making it in the spring. Ruth
