I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

jayreynolds(zone 6/7)August 27, 2004

Please let me know if there is any interest in a fall swap at my place. The location would be northcentral Arkansas, near Calico Rock, south of Mountain Home, AR and north of Mountain View, AR. I am also interested in setting the date in September, either a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Let me know your preference, please. I will provide a barbecue.

There is room for camping and a water/elec hookup, and an 1860 log cabin, BYO mattresses.

Hi Jay. A swap in the central AR area would be great. Count me in along with my daughter and probably my girlfriend who I know would enjoy! Either Saturaday or Sunday would be fine for us. Let us know what we can bring to help out with the BBQ.

Sounds good to me..not that far. Maybe I can talk Beerhog into coming, too. A Sunday would be best for me. I've got a lot of "stuff" I need to find homes for.

HI Jay, i'd love to come if i can. I've said i'd come to 2 others and was in hospital both times. I feel so good i'm sure to make it this time. The 25 & 26 of Sept. have got family reunion. But can make it any other time. Let me know what I can bring. Have Iris and Daylillies i can bring to trade.
thanks, oakleif

Ok, this is looking like there is enough interest, I am in contact with at least four others, so that makes eight, including myself. Let's give it until next weekend and maybe others will see this notice. Perhaps you three might be able to spread the word among some acquaintances either in your network of friends or via GW. Thanks for responding and offering to help. For anyone else, be sure to let me know what date you might prefer, but I will second the motion for a Sunday event.

Jay, I'd love to come if I can get off work. I work on Sunday but am off on Friday and Saturday. I've been taking off quite a bit lately so don't know if I can get off or not. Let me know the date please and I'll try to make it.

Judy, am I on your way there? If so, we can get together and go part of the way together if I get to go.

I'm in the area near Fairfield Bay. Anyone needing a ride is more than welcome. My daughter has a van we'll probably use so there will be extra room.

Jay have you decided on a date yet?

Don't worry, Dak, I have some plants for you, and likely others will help get you started, we all had to start somehow. I have emailed all of you asking for confirmation of how many I need to cook for. Please contact me. I could use help with side dishes and beverages, I'll handle the barbecue. How about it?

I hope you know we appreciate your hosting the swap! I'm really looking forward to meeting all the folks I read posts from here on the Ozark forum.

Thanks,
Darlene

I'm ready! The tater salad is chilling and the marinated salad is marinating. Plants are potted and directions are printed off. Seeds are sitting on the counter ready to go in the car. My daughter said she was making a homemade chocolate cake (I've tasted her choc. cake and it is yummy!) and we are also bringing styrofoam plates and paper napkins. Oh yeah, Kopper also said she was going to make lemonade. Can't wait to meet everyone!

Jay, if ya need anything else email me and I'll pick it up on the way!
