I am definitely in.Other swaps I don't feel so bad if I miss out on for a month but when it comes to OBF I have major withdrawals when I sit out a month..LOL..This one sounds "Perfect for the Fall Season"..and everyone knows I am a sucker when it comes to plants and bulbs.Thanks for hosting.I hope we get a huge crowd : ))

Too much going on - count me out for this month, but I will stop by from time to time to see how it's going. I always like to read about what everyone gets in their box.

Hi all,
I just finished one coat of paint on the new garage siding!!! What a pain! I'm never letting Gary hire someone again. I want the job done start to finish, no, I'll fix the wall and put up siding, but no painting crap.

Anyway, yes count me in : ) lol.
Whoever gets me, I would surely appreciate plants for the area that got all burned up. It is on the west side of the garage, so hot and sunny stuff. Of course, if not, I'll be happy with whatever I get : )

I wonder what happened with Jenell. I hope she just got backed up with stuff at home after that last post, and everything is ok.

Count me in for this month. Bulbs would be great, but no plants, please, it is too late for them here. I don't want to take the chance that they will freeze and die.

welcome pixie,cedar & miisg :)
I just wanted to share the email I received from lunamoon last night AFTER I had posted the Oct Swap.

Hi Sue,
I just want to let you know that I have been trying to start a thread for the Halloween swap but I am having problems with GW. It won't let me log in so I can't post. I'll keep trying but I just wanted to let you know so you weren't wondering.....
Jenell

I figured something must be going on so that is why I started the forum for her . so hoping she will be able to get in gw soon if she cannot then hazelnutbunny has offer to take it over for us . so lets see if lunamoon can get back on soon or not & she may have other ideas for the oct fest . for now just let us know if you want in on the OCT swap or not .

welcome remy think I'm physic ??? well your post just came into my email as I'm still typing :))) this :)
i got a sneak peek .

ladies even if you would like to share a couple MUMS
with your friend this month they are after all fall plants :))) .
well I hope everyone has a great afternoon .

I love fall colors, count me in on this one.

Although I have to agree with Mary Ellen/Mellen ~ plants wont have time to establish themselves this time of year here, so please just bulbs.

I had better request bulbs too for October..any and all kinds..don't matter to me : ) Getting too late for plants in my zone but... I have lots of plants that will do well in warmer zones but won't overwinter here( and only so much room in my basement for them) so maybe I will get to send them to new homes to live a long happy life instead of watching them die forever : ( That would be nice : )

Hello everyone! Thank you for starting the thread for me Sue! I have been having a problem logging on to GW and since I couldn't log in, I couldn't post anything. Hopefully, it's resolved now.

Since it's October, I would like to add a Halloween element to this month's swap so please include something relating to Halloween in your box.

I'll take sign ups through Saturday September 29 and I'll post partners by October 1st. Please send out your box by October 15 to ensure that your partner receives their goodies in time to enjoy them for Halloween.

Sorry to say that I can't participate in this months swaping, however! Finances are too tight right now.
Hope everyone has fun, though!

Good morning to all :)
First things first i guess, I can not participate in this months swap, sorry, i have nothing to send as far as plants, tubers, bulbs etc...
~~Good news here is that DH finally found a job!!..As some of you know he has been out of work since November. This is just such a blesssing, that he found work close to home with a semi-decent pay!!...Second, i also found a job, i lost my job August 17th when the cafe i was working at closed down. My job is only part time, but more money, so it kinda (?) evens out. So i guess our prayers have been answered now that we are both working again.!!
~~Physically i am still in bad shape, lots of pain. Doctor didnt find anything specific with the blood tests, so now i just need to grin and bear it, until hubbys insurance kicks in (3 months) so i can go to a neurologist, or for more tests, or maybe the pain will go away by itself.
~~I really wish i could play this month, but like i said, nothing to send anyone, plus we are (finally) financially on the road to recuperating, so have to keep counting pennies. I will keep reading the forums as i always do daily, and will jump in once in a while to say hello!! Hope you all have a great time this month, and i will be thinking of you!!
Blue skies to everyone!!

Hi Jenell,
I'm glad you could get back on GW!

Trish,
I'm so happy to hear your hubby got a job!!! : ) I'm also glad your part time job is working out.
I'm sorry though to hear you are still in pain. I sure hope it goes away.

Thanks for the warm wishes everyone!

Since the weather in October can be sketchy and we all come from varying geographic locations, I'm making sending plants, bulbs etc optional. Post here or let your partner know if you are interested in receiving them or not. If you are, it doesn't mean that you will send/receive them, just that you are open to it.

Trish~ If sending plants was a deciding factor in sitting out this month, there is still time to change your mind... :o)

Luna Its so good to see you back.I think you picked a really fun theme for the swap but with the rule changes I am afraid I am going to have to pass on this month.Please don't be upset,Its not your fault,but mine for jumping the gun and signing up right away thinking it was plant/bulb and not waiting awhile to see exactly what this months theme and rules would end up being.I am sure you will get a large group to join in on the fun.I will still check in to keep up with the fun you all are having tho : )

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I'd like to sign up for October! Actually I don't do bulbs, really but plants would be appreciated although I don't know if anyone will still have any to send. I am just about opposite of all the rest of the crew. This is the start of the season where plants are really enjoyed. We gardeners out here stay outside from October to April planting and nuturing etc!

I really like Halloween since that's my anniversary. You know, "Honey there are kids dressed up in costume at the door asking for candy -- what day is it?

It's our Anniversary!! LOL!

I was out of state visiting with family and missed the whole time there was for signing up. Anyway, I hope everyone has fun with this swap. My garden is in need of some extra watering and TLC anyway. It has not been a good year for digging and sharing plants.
