Fall Swap 2014

It's time to start thinking about the fall swap. We usually hold it on the last Saturday in September or the first one in October. This year they fall on September 27th and October 4th. Please weigh in and once a date is decided I would be glad to reserve a pavilion (hopefully the Beaver pavilion) at Oak Mountain State Park.

My vote would be for September 27th. I'll update my Exchange Page in the next few days. That is where I'll also keep track of my trades.

Thanks for handling this Susan!

My opinion is to call off the swap for lack of interest. Reserve the pavilion if you wish - I'll gladly pay $15 to spend the day with whoever shows up.

Or we could meet at a neutral site, swap plants, and enjoy each others company by sharing a meal together at a local restaurant. Personally, I'm tired of worrying about it....

I probably wouldn't come. It was fun meeting everyone, but it was an awfully long way to go and my free time is minimal right now.

The Fall Swap 2013 was one of the best I have been to. I think each trader is just waiting on the next one to check in.
Come on folks check in even if you say you cant or an't coming. Don't dissapoint an old trader, a sweet lady and a worry wort.
I have a few good plants to trade,

Just guessing here, but I'm not "old" or "sweet", so I must be the "wort". LOL! But hey, that's my role, and I play it well.

I have not spoken with Alice yet - I am open both days. I'll have some miniature aloes, not certain what else.

I won't have anything to offer this year. I will make a point of growing extra next yesr. Also, I live three hours away from Oak Mtn, so it is kinda rough. I hope ya'll have a great time and post lots of pics.

Carrie and others who think they have nothing to trade. I-We trade for just about anything. Bag goods from Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, ect. plants from these stores, native plants, bricks, cast iron cookware, old tools, land scape supplies, plant books, colored and clear glassware, yard art, craft(Priced) bottles(for bottle tree), flower pots(I need some huge ones for blackberries), Can food, Diet. drinks, for me anything good that will help me lose weight, farm tools, old saws, I think you get the ideal. If you have anything, offer it or bring it.
Carrie, I would like to help you, since I went thru some of the same things you have. I had ten heart attacks, they put me in hospital the last week of June and wouldn't let me go. I stayed until after July 4th when Dr. returned from vacuation, hadOpen heart. Was sent home with little hope, each time you have a heart attack part of you heart dies, also had congestive heart failure. Ater feeling sorry for myself for awhile, I made up my mine I was not ready to die. Made myself raised beds. It was not easy. I raised and sold enough plants to suport myself and pay when My friend died. My kids didnot help, just my daughter got me about 40 something packs of seeds. She also helped when we were starting the Al. Plant Swap. I know it works because I can do anything I want. You might not react like I did, but you will be beeter off for trying. Go for them beds. and please let us help..

Plantman71, thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I applaud your strength of will. Mama always said, "move it or lose it" and you personify that thought.
