Aquasco Swap: Food and Stuff List for
The First Annual Aquasco Fall Plant Swap
Sept. 30, 2006 at Vlad's Country Estate:)
(The following is quoted from Christine's version)
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!

Questions? just include them in your post here, or feel free to e-mail Vlad. (Vlad can't get online to respond, but we're working on this.)
Have fun finding new homes for your surplus plants and discovering new plants you didn't know you needed!
Did I forget anything? Of course! So, let me know so I can fix it!
Wishing everyone a great swap! Happy gardening,
