wanted: 4th annual wny plant swap
Here's the scoop. I'd like to do the plant swap on Sunday, June 3rd (at 11am) if that works for everyone. Let me know if anyone has a conflict with that date. As always, the swap will be held at my house in Albion, NY. If you are interested in attending, please send me an email. Some time in May I will send out directions and further details to those who have RSVP'd. I plan to follow the same format as in the previous swaps: mingling, plant swap, pot luck lunch, chineese exchange, etc. I can repost the details from last year if anyone needs the info. I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone again!
On a personal note: after much thought, my family and I have decided to relocate to the east side of Rochester for several reasons. We're scheduled to close on our current house at the end of June, so I really debated on if I should host the swap or not this year. It goes without saying that my house will be in total chaos as we'll be packing and what not. However, this swap is one of my favorite parts of spring. I really look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying a day with my fellow gardeners not to mention the added bonus of getting new plants!!! I have always loved the fact that we have people from Rochester and Buffalo coming to the swap and I hope we can continue that in future years. I am concerned that for future years if I host at my house on the east side of rochester we will lose some of our Buffalo area attendees and I don't want that to happen. So I ask all of you to do some thinking. I would be more than happy to host at my new house in future years (possibly we could include the CNY folks too), or we could move the swap to a park somewhere in between Buffalo and Rochester, or perhaps there is someone here who is conviently located between the two places that wouldn't mind hosting. I truly look forward to hosting this swap every year and I think it will be one of the things I miss the most about where I live now. So everyone think about it, and we can discuss it at the swap and figure out a plan for next year. On an aside, to those of you in Rochester, if you know of any good houses that might be going for sale soon, let me know! We had an offer in on a house but got bumped and now we're having a horrible time finding something we like.
Well, I think that about covers it. Can't wait to see you all as usual in June!!
