Hello all,
I stumbled onto to the forum and would like to join your Plant Swap if that's OK. I have no plants to offer for the swap, but I do know how to cook. I need plants and gardening advice, willing to bargain with food, chocolate even.

You are more than welcome to join us. Bring food to fill our tummies, and we will fill your car with plants!

I have just moved back to the area and this time I actually saw the post BEFORE the swap! I would love to attend. I have a tiny & shady backyard but a lot of my plants perished in the years we were away. However, I will try and get what I can in exchangeable plant life (hardiness guaranteed..hee-hee) and the rest in edibles or accessories to the party.

Skip123, if you're not careful, you'll find your car loaded with plants! And don't fret: good cooks are always welcome!

Should have a bunch of uncommons as I am no longer participating in the rock garden club. The group is becoming a little too snooty for me.
I ordered seeds from Germany and England, will have a buch of seedlings

I am so sorry, but I can't make it tomorrow -- I have to go out of town for a family emergency. Please have a wonderful time, and I'll see you next year.

Not sure if "better late than never" really applies here, but I'll be bringing banana bread and some home-packed dilly beans.

Also, some "Hello My Name is" stickers, since my husband just brought me a package as an option to label seed packets!

I'm so looking forward to this today!
