Spring Plant Swap(s)-thinking ahead
Our little town has several events over our 'warm months'. Last year I added a local plant swap to our 'Spring Fling' event and will do so again this year in mid May...probably the 18th. I'd be delighted to host the MN GW spring swap as part of this on that date and think you'd find it a great day trip....walking tour of historic Mantorville, Hubble House Restaurant (won MN best restaurant award for 2012)and other 'stuff' which is still in development.
I fully understand that a location in the Twin Cities would probably convenient for most who attend the swaps. I just thought I'd get the ball rolling so folks can start thinking ahead for plants they'll be moving and/or dividing or starting seeds...yep getting the urge here!
OK, now for a bit more unbridled and unabashed Mantorville promotion...
We have what I think is one of the best (if not the best) small town festivals over the weekend after labor day, usually accomodating 15-30K visitors in our little home of In late June we'll have our Olde Tyme Days with 'spirit' tastings, costume (period, steampunk, or whatever appears -lOL)contest, Maypole Dancing as well as the 'usual' historic sites and tours.
...and,of course, the above spring fling but that's smaller in comparison to the two above.

Regardless, I'll be hosting a swap local or expanded as part of the spring fling and look forward to seeing everyone.
my excitement this year may just be cabin fever...or maybe it has something to do with retiring the end of February!
Keep warm and think spring!
