I will be there, but have to be in Dallas at 9am...then I'll head up to Denton. Look for me to arrive with ice between 10:30 and 11am.

If you were planning on bringing bottled water and haven't already bought some... PLEASE DON'T!!

I have 2 coolers full of small bottled waters iced down.
I bought them for hubby's office (they were moving today) and then was told to not bring them.

They are already loaded up and I will bring them to the swap.
I should arrive around 11:30
Carrie is going to bring a cooler with ice in it ahead of me since I can't get there as early as you others.

So I just joined the forum today because I had a few questions, and I find you're all getting together about five minutes from me. As it is such short notice I don't have much to bring, but maybe I can interest someone in a few red cherry tomato seedlings (I filled a bed yesterday and have two pots, of five seedlings each, left over) in exchange for an artemisia Powys Castle and some mint. Would that be okay?

I also posted this on the original Swap thread.

Chris, I'm not sure if they're having the denton swap this spring.

I haven't seen or heard anything .. plan on doing the Ft Worth Swap instead.

I just came from the one held at Calloway's Lewsiville. Quite a nice turn out and I got to visit with people I haven't seen since last year's swap.
