I ain't sure about food, since that dead 'ole chicken I've been offerin's been passed around for the past two years and ain't much left of him, but here's my trade list:

Agave 'lophantha' pups (established 1-gal. pots)
Alocasia 'California', 'Cucullata', 'Wentii' (nice 1- and/or 3-gal. pots)
Begonia grandis 'Heron's Pirouette' (two 1-gal. pots; can dig more)
Canna 'Tropicanna' (lg. 1-gal. pot)
Colocasia 'Illustis', 'Ruffles' (1-gal. pots full)
Hedera colchica (Persian ivy - rooted cuttings)
Iris pseudacorus (yellow flag / freshly dug bulbs)
Jasminum officinale 'Hardy' (established 1-gal. pot; spec. trade)
Lygodium japonicum (established 1 gal. pot)
Manihot esculenta (2 & 3 ft. tall established plants for special trades only)
Musa 'basjoo' (two healthy 3-gal. pots)
Poncirus trifoliata 'Flying Dragon' (lg. pot; spec. trade)
Saxifragra stolonifera (can dig on demand)
Tetrapanax papyriferus (several sizes; all healthy)
Trachelospermun asiaticum 'Winter Beauty' (unrooted cuttings)

FYI, most everything I'm offering is established, but will not necessarily survive if planted this fall in Zone 7b, so please be prepared to pamper it through the coming winter in its container. A spring planting will help ensure the survival of most of the plants I'm offering.

Please visit my GW Exchange Page for my list of "wants".

Thanks a bunch!

Please check my plant list on the plants I have to trade. Some can only be traded in Spring , but ask. I have a lots I am going to get rid of. If you don't see what you want ask. If interested in any of the big Shrubs or a lots of plants-you can come and dig. I also have pots of all sizes.
I am only interest in shade, native, bigleaf, hosta, daylilys, palms, or unusall plants. I will trade for potting soil, top soil, humus, munure, farm tools, old tools, regular hand tools of any kind(mine got stolen) or any yard art,bird houses, ect. I am mostly interested in the supplies listed.

I forgot to say that I still trade for cakes and pies and other good food. I sure did like all the food I traded for last swap. I am still by myself and still don't like to cook for just one person .

Hey where is Oak Mtn State Park? I have some day lilys the regular orange kind and some yellow and I have some yellow dwarf cannas. They are so overgrown and need to be divided desperatly.

RE: HAVE: Fall Swap - Oct. 14, 2006 - Oak Mtn. State Park

Take exit 246 off of I-65. That is 4 miles south of the I-459 and I-65 interchange. The park road right in front of the Cracker Barrel, The park road runs parallel to the interstate for a while and then the park road goes under I-65. Go through the main gate. Ask the attendant where is the lake, bike trails and picnic area. Go straight down the road a mile or so until you see the sign for the picnic area and lake. Turn right. We are near the end of that road.
