HAVE: food list for mag spring swap may 6 in Burtonsville md
This is the secret to our great swaps - those who don't bring PLANTS bring FOOD. Preferably homemade and loaded with calories 'cause it's tough work doing all that trading and socializing. Extra points for food with chocolate. And if you have no plants and no talent in the kitchen, we still need supplies, and drinks, and ice, and potato chips.....
-Self-adhesive labels for participants (Nothing fancy, I used old Floppy Disk labels for the Fall Swap)
-Charcoal and Lighter Fluid for Charcoal if you're planning to grill
- a few non-gardening husbands to run the grill (makes 'em feel useful).
-Napkins and Paper Towels
-Paper Plates-Paper or Plastic Cups
-Large Heavy Duty Garbage Bags for Clean-up
-Anything I've forgotten to list.
-Condiments: Mustard, Relish, Catsup, salt & pepper.
-Rolls if you're having hot dogs and burgers
Also, this is a great place to show off your very special recipes that your family won't touch, like lavender flavored shortbread or zucchini fudge or whatever - CAUSE IN THE INTERESTS OF BOTANICAL SCIENCE, WE'LL EAT IT!
