Pennisula/Brinnon Trade
Potluck
Date: Saturday, April 23rd
Time: 11:00 a.m. til 3:30 p.m. or longer
Lunch will be 1:00 p.m.

Jerome and I will provide name tags, Construction paper for marking your trade location, paper plates, cups, and utencils. Please bring your drink of choice. We will have coffee available.

WORD OF WARNING
We have a path that leads to the Dosewallips River. Please keep track of your children.
If anyone is sensitive to animals..we have a well mannered dog who wanders freely on our property.

I will send directions to everyone who signs below. If you have your gardenweb e-mail address blocked..you will need to e-mail me your active e-mail address.

Plant trading can be pre-arranged or on the spot trades. After all trading is completed, we will have a "for grabs location" after lunch.

Newbies are welcome..so don't feel embarassed about not knowing anyone or bringing very little to trade. I'm sure everyone will leave with a plant/plants.

O.K. Let's have fun! Let the trading begin!
Oh ya...you don't necessarily need plants to trade. Many gardeners will trade for other items.
One other thing. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR HAVE/WANT TRADE LISTS.

Elaine, I will be coming with a friend, Lynn. She is going through chemotherapy and is just now becoming interested in gardening.

She's been a real trooper so far and will be done in July.

If anyone has any oriental or asiatic lilies, or datura/brug starts, she would be thrilled to have them.

Thanks! Susan Long (aka drtdgr)

I am hoping to make it this year. I mean it. No, really I am.

Looks like I'll have a few hosta "capitatas" to trade.

I still hope to come and might possibly bring a neighbor who has been very interested in all of the plants I've brought home after the other exchanges I've been too!! She says..."They gave them to you????" With a look of confusion and uncertainty. I shared one of the hydrangea cuttings someone was kind enough to bring me at the fall Green Elephant and she was tickled pink. Made me feel good to be able to share with someone else since I have only been in a position to receive recently!

I'd like to come - I'm a newbie but may have some things to bring from the new greenhouse; will have to wait and see. I will update my list. I may have some baby brugmansia and datura by then.

Sharon in Kingston. I've tried to e-mail you several times with directions and all my e-mails are rejected.
Please unblock my e-mail address so we can communicate.

Hi Elaine - I'd like to come and will bring food and plants to give away. Since I am currently digging up the garden to move I won't be bringing any home though (yeah right - like that could happen). =)

Hi Elaine,
I could use directions...
I've been to your lovely home once (last year, I think), but could use a refresher on how to get there.
Who was it that said, There's nothing wrong with my memory...it's just short!'

Hi Elaine,

I will be there and need directions. All I have to trade this year is lots of French Lilac starts. I have a new house (1920!) and nothing in the yard yet except lots of yummy scented lilacs!

time to BUMP this thread!!

Hi all,

Over the months there have been several "I'll try to there" messages...we're just over a week away, so how about we take a count once more to get a better idea of who all will be able to attend. Maybe we can simply state:

Yes....me +1 (or 2, etc.)
-or-
Still maybe...me +1 (similar to above)
-or-
Sorry, won't be able to attend after all..drat, I'm so bummed!

..........................................................

I'll start.

YES....me +1

Patrick

RE: HAVE: Important! Information for the Pennisula/Brinnon Trade

Yes, me plus two (or 1 and a half, depending how you count)
