Looks like a good time was had by all. I bet you didn't come home with empty hands :).

Didn't the day go way too fast? Seems I only got to chat with a handfull of people. And a good turnout too. Remy... did you get a sample of the Aunt Mary's sweet corn I was giving out? They went real fast. I think I had 50 samples of it and ran out early.

Annette,

Looks like a good time. I hope to get there one day! I would be interested to hear about the seeds you received/traded and the people you meet.

Tony,
No I did not. Last year, I picked up the Seneca Speckled Egg (waiting on seeds right now) and the October Beans you had.
So I figured I would get over there and see what you had after awhile. Well by the time I went over, only the October Beans were left, lol.
I also wanted to make sure I talked to you to put your face with your seeds in my brain, and that didn't happen either, lol. I know I obviously saw you last year and this year, and I know your forum name, but I am not making the connection to your seeds.
Next year!

Dean,
You would really enjoy it. So many nice people. There are people who come every year and of course there's always new people. Many people bring their family seeds or their favorite heirloom seeds to trade which is neat.
I got one bean from a younger guy called 'Cranberry Bush', and it is a smaller bean than the normal cranberry types.
Another I got is 'Bruce' with the description of dark fall bean.
Another I got was 'Lewis Morgan' a fall bean which the dry bean sort of looks like a smaller 'Jembo Polish'.
I asked a few people who were set up at tables with lots of varieties to give me their favorite so I got 'Alma Whitaker Cornfield' and 'White Hastings' pole.
I also got a couple cowpeas 'Peking Black' and 'Blue Goose'.
I came home with a few other veggies too like peppers and tomatoes.
This year, was neat too since some of the swappers from last year came back and told me how much they liked what they tried from me last year. In particular my 'Stump of the World' tomato was a hit.
