Hello all,
I stumbled onto to the forum and would like to join your Plant Swap if that's OK. I have no plants to offer for the swap, but I do know how to cook. I need plants and gardening advice, willing to bargain with food, chocolate even.

Hi skp123 ~
You are more than welcome to join us. Bring food to fill our tummies, and we will fill your car with plants!

I have just moved back to the area and this time I actually saw the post BEFORE the swap! I would love to attend. I have a tiny & shady backyard but a lot of my plants perished in the years we were away. However, I will try and get what I can in exchangeable plant life (hardiness guaranteed..hee-hee) and the rest in edibles or accessories to the party.

Should have a bunch of uncommons as I am no longer participating in the rock garden club. The group is becoming a little too snooty for me.
I ordered seeds from Germany and England, will have a buch of seedlings

Not sure if "better late than never" really applies here, but I'll be bringing banana bread and some home-packed dilly beans.

Also, some "Hello My Name is" stickers, since my husband just brought me a package as an option to label seed packets!

I'm so looking forward to this today!
