Countdown to MTPS!

tlfox(7b-8a)August 22, 2010

Am I seeing my calendar right...only 8 weeks until the swap?? Third weekend of October...October 16th... Where did the summer go?

Is anybody else looking forward to it? I can hardly wait! Anyone looking for anything special? I have been working on some garden art to offer for trade...

Summer has flown. I am looking forward to the swap, especially to swapping for some shrubs and/or old rambler rose starts.
I've had mostly positive results with the perennials I received this spring. A wonder with the dry weather and my not weeding well when it got really hot.

I was just thinking about the swap today and how much I miss you guys. With all the garbage and upheaval that is going on in my life now it's been difficult to get on GW lately. I sure look forward to spending time with everyone in a few weeks!

I'm new to TN and the TN forums, and still learning some things about GW. I live in Jasper TN. Where is the MTPS held? I think I may have the "opportunity" to choose between ET and MT! Can my husband stand it???

Junebug - I am in Chattanooga - not to far from you. I go to both - you should try to go to both too. You will meet some fabulous people - have some good food - learn a little something from the guest speaker - and come home with a ton of plants.

My first swap was this spring - I attended both. They are so very different - but the underlying content is the same - gardeners of all walks of life that come together to share a common interest. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with so many others that enjoy what makes me the happiest.

Hope to see you there. :D

Ok, so where is the MTPS held? Is there another site/forum where I can get the details?

Go here for the details on the where. The when hasn't been updated on the site - but it should be October 17th - the third saturday of October.

I was encouraged to come even though my garden was very new and I didn't have much to trade. But I came home with so much more than I ever thought I would - and was thrilled with it all.

Hope to see you there!!


Here is a link that might be useful: MTPS

Great! Thanks for the link and info. I do not have all the sites, links, exchanges, lingos and how they interrelate quite figured out yet. I would like to come, but we might be taking a vacation that weekend. Need to firm up my plans, but hope it works out. Never been to that part of the state.

By the way, is there a way to see any topic that has been updated at the top of the list? And to resort the entries with the most recent at the top?

Junebug - The East Tenn Plant Swap is Oct 2, if that is one that you might consider. I go to both of them, Chattanooga seems to be in the middle - you are going I-24 or I-75 either way.
As for getting the lingo, etc down - I am still learning myself. Everyone is so helpful - do be afraid to ask, they will point you in the right direction. And your other question about sorting the posts - I have no idea. Searching is still a wierd one for me - I seem to pull up everything except what I am looking for.

Heather - they said it was the third Saturday of April and October - so October 16th? At least that is what I have heard - but no info on the time yet, but same place. Can't wait!! :D
