I could use some tomato plants Tammy.

I'll be bringin left over sale stuff as my sale ends Sat.

Lookin for same dinner plate dahlias, and callas. Also looking for tomato, and pepper plants too.

RE: WANTED: Getttin ready for the spring swap?

I'll be bringing a few scraggly but very strong hot peppers and Satsuma orange bell peppers. Also lots of Siberian iris :) half of which will be Caesar's Brother and the other half a lovely lighter purple one I'll have to see if I can look up. *MIGHT* bring one of those huge blousy peach ones. Also a little wild ginger, geum, bloodroot, and whatever else pops out in excess! OH and a few roses - looks like I may get a Mary Queen of Scots! I haven't had time to dig yet, that's the job for tomorrow!
What I *NEED* is a Chocolate (or Black) Cherry tomato plant. My seeds are misbehaving! Always want more Meadow rue and Rue anemone. A couple agastache plants could actually find a home here, Queen of the Prairie, and suchlike.


RE: WANTED: Getttin ready for the spring swap?

When you seem me you'll know why I'm writing about food - Lol. But, since I enjoy eating and always hope for a good variety to 'graze' on......... I'll be bringing potatoe salad, chips, and some noncaffeinated pop for those of us who have been advised to limit our intake of that substance.

RE: WANTED: Getttin ready for the spring swap?

I will bring the tray of tomatos. Some are 4 inches and some are smaller. I also have a tray of peppers they are also small I have green and carnival. Marie if I get a chance I will dig some Thalictrum Lavender Mist and a queen of the prairie for you. I did see I have many babies of Thalictrum which I don't want. I just haven't had time to attend to that bed. I am also bringing two friends. Some of you meet Deb at the seed swap in the winter. Does anyone still need vegtables seeds? If so what are you looking for.
