Hi Everyone
Time to tell me if you are coming, whether you plan to stay for lunch(need to know how much French Onion Soup to make) and if so what you might bring for the food table.
Date is Sunday June 3rd, time is 10am.As you probably know you don't have to come from NH. All are welcome.

If you care to, you can tell us what plants you might bring and what plants you are looking for but it is not necessary.
Let me know if you need directions and I will email them to you about a week before the swap.

I've been looking at my garden and see as usual I have loads of phlox and fever few and gloriosa daisies if anyone is interested. Also I have a monkshood and one or two primroses I could part with I started seeds inside quite early so have some tomato plants and a few datura, brugs, and annual yellow hibiscus that I may also offer ( depends how many I kill before the swap)
As more things come up in the garden I will list them.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
Annie

Hello Annie and gardening friends,

I will be there, and hopefully Michael will come too.
I plan on bringing farm fresh deviled eggs from my own chickens.

Don't know what I have yet to swap. I will check in later when I have a chance to check out what is growing in the yard.

Looking forward to seeing everyone

Hi Annie,
Myself (Lynn Burton-Goffstown), my mother (Ann Southmayd-Londonderry) and my sister (Kathy Schettino-Maine) will be attending the plant swap. We will be bringing something for the food table not sure what yet and yes we will stay for lunch. This will be our 3rd year and we are looking forward to this event. Thanks for all you do. Lynn


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

I will be there! I have some annuals and perennials I started from seed, including seeds I saved from your delightful white petunias. I'd love a tomato seedling. Not much space here, so one plant is plenty for us.

Blake, deviled eggs from your own chickens--I will be first in line!

More details later. Looking forward to seeing everyone!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Blake
You better make sure that Michael comes. You know you need him in case you find some bush that you want him to dig up!!!
Annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Oh no, I hope I don't knock Diane down in my rush to get a deviled egg. Love them but since my husband hates them, we never have them at home.

Yes,Annie, sign me up for the swap and lunch. I'm not sure what I'll bring yet. The weather has been good for transplanting but I'm short on time and will be away for 10 days in the middle of May.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Good Morning,

Sheila and I will be there - not sure what we'll bring yet but plants and food seem like a great combination. I do plan on bringing a new swap friend. Will post later. So glad one of my favorite days is coming soon.

RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Annie and Gardening Buds:

I will bring Texas Caviar as a food item for the table. It is a black bean, corn, red pepper, cilantro + other secret ingredients mixed together and served as a "dip" into Scoops chips. Is very Tex-Mex and the cilantro makes it taste "fresh". Can't wait to have some of your French Onion Soup. It is super delish.

It will be me and my hubby Paul. (who loves the luncheon and the home made baked goods for breakfast!)

Here's what I have for trade so far: pulmonaria, ajuga reptans - dark purple, primula japonica Miller's Crimson, heliopsis Summer Sun, white valerian, comfrey and robin's egg blue forget me nots. Anybody want or need these?

Annie, I'd love a brug if possible.

Can't wait to see all those familiar faces and to zip around Diane to be first in line for food....


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Oh my heavens Debra, Texas Caviar sounds out of this world and so do the deviled eggs from Blakes own chickens How fresh can you get!! I always knew that most gardeners were also fabulous cooks.

I went out into the garden today among the rain drops and found I have lots of Jacob's Ladder if any one would like some and of course I have plenty of evening primrose that I will give away.
Debra I will give you a brugs. Do you want a 5 foot tall one or one of my seedlings which will probably be about 8 to 12 inches tall?

I am looking for some oriental poppies but realize they are hard to transplant.
Many of you have given me Jack in the Pulpit and so far I have had no success. If any of you would like to give me some more to try and some info I would be most happy
Annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

I'll be there and I'll bring something baked and sweet, more than likely a lemon cake again!

I don't really have a full list yet, but here's what I can think of so far off the top of my head:

Agastache 'Golden Jubilee'
Nepeta 'Sweet Dreams'
Painted Daisy 'Robinson's Single'
Verbascum 'Milkshake'
Euphorbia - the reddish one, can't remember the name now
Rose campion

I know there are seedlings of various and sundry perennials out there and I'll get a list together as I wander around tomorrow in the garden.

Does anyone want seeds? I have various annuals, perennials and vegetables. If anyone likes to start seeds you can email me offline and I can give you the list to see if there is anything you would like.

Looking forward to it!
Susan


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

I will be coming and possibly bringing my nephew Erick.

I will bring some chicken salad sandwiches for the food table. I'm not sure what I will be bringing for plants, I know I will have some mini hostas, heucheras, dianthus "baby doll", codonopsis lancelota,salvia clary sage,pink forget me nots,campanula cherry bells...

I will make a more complete list when I have the plants dug and potted.

I am interested in:

Monkshood

jack in the pulpit

green dragon (got from sinbadsmom) Mine didn't make it!

white geraniums


Lisa


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hey Lisa,

I'll pot up some Monkshood for you-I'll always take another heuchera-See you on the 3rd

Marsha


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Marsha
What color are your Monkshood? Mine are deep blue If yours are a different color maybe we could swap?
Annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

A friend sent this to me
I especially like the 3 rows of peas as that is what I find when I am in the garden

How To Plant A Garden

PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS :

1. Peace of mind
2. Peace of heart
3. Peace of soul

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF SQUASH:

1. Squash gossip
2. Squash indifference
3. Squash grumbling
4. Squash selfishness

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF LETTUCE:

1. Lettuce be faithful
2. Lettuce be kind
3. Lettuce be patient
4. Lettuce really love one another

NO GARDEN IS WITHOUT TURNIPS:

1. Turnip for meetings
2. Turnip for service
3. Turnip to help one another

TO CONCLUDE OUR GARDEN YOU MUST HAVE THYME:

1. Thyme for God
2. Thyme for each other
3. Thyme for family
4. Thyme for friends

WATER FREELY WITH PATIENCE AND CULTIVATE WITH LOVE. THERE IS MUCH FRUIT IN YOUR GARDEN BECAUSE YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW. NOT BAD, HUH?!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Annie, I think the best time for transplanting oriental poppies is August when the plant is sort of dormant.

Lisa, I would love a mini hosta.

I have been busy getting the veggie garden going so I have no idea what I'm bringing.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Annie,

My monkshood is the same as yours (I think I got it from you)

Pretty sure I'll bring some
Lady's Mantle
Dark Pink Geraniums
Tall Phlox
I have Kerria that I'll dig if anyone wants some
My friend is bringing flowering Quince
I'll keep checking on what else I have to swap

Susan-I'd love some verbascum and a painted daisy if you have enough to share

Marsha


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Marsha

I'd love a Kerria.Would you be interested in a datura or a castor bean plant? They are annuals but they produce plenty of seeds and are easy to grow.
Annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Marsha, I'll put you down for both Verbascum and painted daisy. Is your kerria a single-flowered or double?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

I will bring some dessert. I am bringing David again and I will sign him up for a fruit salad.

I can bring the following:

hydrangea "annabelle"
phlox "david"
chives
lamb's ear
Iris "immortality" (I will only bring what people request since I divided them last year and would like to keep as many in the ground as possible to get them established)
alchemilla

Could have more and will update as I go.

What I am looking for:

GRASSES!!! - black mondo, hakonechloa or blue fescue "elijah blue"
helleborus
herbs
clematis (white) if anyone has any to spare.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Whitegarden,

I would love the hydrangea annabelle. What herbs are you looking for? I have Lemon Balm, Cat nip, chives, Eqyptain onions, comfrey, stinging nettle, echinacea, tansy,


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi blake, I'll pot you an annabelle. I probably can dig up two or three if anyone else wants one. For herbs, I was thinking thyme, lavender... I have plenty of chives and echinacea just lures in the critters for a meal. I will try some lemon balm, comfrey and tansy I guess.

Thank you!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Whitegarden, I can dig up some blue fescue for you.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Yahooooooooooooooo!!!! I am trying to fill in large area in my front garden. Ishareflowers gave me several plants two years ago and they became the beginning of a ground cover. They are happy in their location so I figure I will go for a mono-culture!

Thanks thyme! Anything you are looking for?

I also picked up 4 mondo grasses today at my garden club's plant sale!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are there any specific plants you are looking for?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Tara

So glad you are joining us. Do you need directions? If so email me You can find my email on MY Page.

I've been hobbling out to my garden(got pain in right leg) and find I have loads of phlox(the tall kind), fever few,gloriosa daisies and ferns. If anyone is interested let me know.

Marsha, I'm really excited about the kerra. I'll have a couple of daturas ready for you. I've begun to harden them off on the porch.

Also have potted up 3 turtle heads and 3 monkshood and can
probably pot up a couple more. let me know if anyone is interested

My daughter Rachel, grand daughter Casey, and my son Marc
came over for Mother's Day and helped me plant carrots, beets and dug holes for the tomatos that I will plant after they harden off for a few days and they helped me get out the hoses and turn on the water so that I can begin watering the gardens when they need it and they spread a truck load of mulch that Marc brought over. Best Mother's Day present ever!!!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello All,

RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

What color are the tall phlox. I would be interested in any color except for white. Would you like me to bring another cat nip plant for your cat?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Marsha, I have the double. I thought if you had the single and I had the double we could get Annie both varieties. Plus, I'd snag one from you! LOL! I'd love to get my hands on a singe kerria some day.

Blake, I have some non-white phlox seedlings that have popped up in the garden this year that I can dig up for you. I also have 'Color Flash' astilbe I can dig up for you.

I also stumbled upon a small seedling of Deutzia gracilis and if anyone wants it, I'll pot it up.

Also have:
Dianthus 'Diabunda Mix'
Geranium pratense 'Splish Splash'
Veronica 'Eveline'
Some purple heuchera seedlings

AND....After Annie's awesome swap and delicious lunch, if anyone wants to come back to my place to wander around the garden you're more than welcome. I live about 6 miles from Annie on the way out to route 293 so it will leave you close to the highway.

Looking foward to seeing everyone....and Annie's soup!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Blake
Most of my phlox is some shade of pink or red but once in awhile a white with pink center will appear.You can take 3 or 4 plants and hopefully most will be shades of pink or red.

annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

Pink and red sounds great thanks.

Annie, is there anything else you are looking for besides orriental poppies, Jack in the pulpit, or non deep blue monkshood?

Thyme to dig, all that sounds great Thanks. And what is on your wish list?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Blake

Actually I found my Jack in the Pulpit It was slow peeping thru and I started some perennial poppies from seed which may or may not succeed however I am cleaning a place to put some herbs I have chives,rosemary and mint so if you have some different spices that would be great.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Anyone have any hens-and-chicks to spare? I think our snowless winter left mine exposed to hungry squirrels. Not one left this spring! Thanks.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Annie,

Thats great that you are making space for herbs! I can pot you up some garden sage, makes a great tea! Some Lemon Balm also makes a great tea and has some great medicinal value. I can pot up some german thyme, also a great tea, and I have some greek oreagano I can give you for all your Italian dishes!I think I have an extra german chamomile and marojam. I have some winter savoy that I might be able to divide.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Blake
all those herbs sound great but I do not need all of them May be the garden sage, Lemon balm and Greek oregano.
Have you told me any plants you would like/ I've got to start
making a list of who wants what.

Annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

Okay I will put your name on those three. Let me know if you decide you can use the others as well.

You had me down for some of those red or pink tall pholx


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Here is the list of what I've promised to people so far
Diane tomato plant
Debbie brugs

Blake phlox

Have I forgotten anyone?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Please let me know if anyone else wants any of the plants I have listed.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Anyone want a white pine tree? No kidding, I have one in a pot that I try to pawn off, er, that is, "trade" every year (ha ha). It's over 5 years old (lost track) and is just under 3 feet tall with lots of branches. Needs a big yard! If you have a large tract of land with a long-term plan, here's a tree for you.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

I find I have loads of gloriosa daisies that I will dig up if any one wants them
Annie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Annie,

I don't have any of those. So I would love some if no one else has claimed them in a trade already.

Blake


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Blake I'll dig you up a big clump of gloriosa daisies.

annie

Thamks, Annie.

RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Sinbadsmom

I would like a a couple of your double decker echinacae seedlings if you can find anything on my list that you might want and what is a green apple plant?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Diane
I can give you a few hens and chickens.I think I got them from you originally. Not sure just how to dig them as they are
on a stone wall so maybe I'll wait till you arrive and you can do the digging


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

HI Annie, be glad to bring a couple of the double deckers they are doing well. The green apples is a double columbine the flower is a limey greenish color.
someone gave me a grape anemone last year and unfortunately I managed to put it right in the path of those horrible little beasty moles!!!! So its gone, but as of the other day so are two of the moles! If anyone has another grape anemone they can spare I woud love it. Kathie


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Sinbadsmom
thanks
I will dig you up a grapeleaf anemone


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

thymetodig, I would love to see your garden. What time do you think you will be "open for visitors"? I also like to make a quick stop at Uncanoonuc Perennials while I'm in the area.
I'm not doing so good getting things potted up. Still hardening off some seedlings and mourning the loss of some of my perennials.

OTOH the primrose I got at last year's swap is beautiful and doing well. Other things from past swaps are ready for dividing.

Haven't even decided what to bring for our potluck lunch besides my appetite.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

defrost49, anytime after Annie's lunch would be fine. I'm definitely staying for that onion soup! You can drop by any time after Uncanoonuc. I'll be around.

Deb, if no one has claimed the primula yet, I'd love to try it.

Whitegarden, I'd love an iris 'immortality' if you don't mind digging one up.

Blake, besides the color flash astilbe, I'll also have some 'Visions in Red' for you.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi thyme2dig, you've got it!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello All!
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
I'll be bringing some salvia(azurea, nutans, and forskahoeli(I'm sure that is misspelled), euphorbia corollata,
and whatever else I manage to dig up before then.
See you soon,
Deirdre


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Deirdre,

Last year you brought me some sweet Annie. It didn't make it. If you have any you can spare, I would like to try planting it again.

Hi Thymetodig, Sounds grreat thanks~


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Blake,
The Sweet Annie that I gave you was a self sown volunteer from seeds sown long ago. I'll check and see if any came up this year. You should also check around the area you planted yours.
Deirdre


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Deirde,

Thanks for checking it out. I had cleared a space hoping it would self seed. Unfortunately every weed around town decided to land on that spot and everything is there but the sweet Annie. I will continue to carefully weed it out. I will let you know if I find any.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Singleton,

I will take any ornamenal grasses you are looking to part with. I would like to experiment with them in a few locations.


 o
Matt's Wild tomato seedling

My schedule is still undecided so I've been lurking. I've looked everywhere for Matt's Wild tomato seedling. Tiny little tomatoes on a big, wild out of control bush. Any one have one? Even Mahoney's with their bragging rights to goodness knows how many tomatoes doesn't have it.Thanks.

RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Marie,

I emailed you about a possible visit but didn't hear back. Hope you are coming on Sunday!

WG


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Whitegarden,
I'll pot up some Miscanthus Gracimillus (or could be Graziella...they are similar but the latter blooms sooner)and Varigatus for you. They both grow well and can stand to be divided every year if wanted.

Thyme2dig,
can I get a Geranium 'Splish Splash' from you? They look wonderful!

So far I can bring:
Ornamental grasses: Miscanthus Graziella/Gracimillus, Varigatus, and Strictus
Hosta: June, Frances Williams, etc (not the common ones)
Sweet Woodruff (only one...new to me)
Dianthus Siberian Blue
Snow in Summer (Cerastium tomentosum)
Creeping thyme

Sorry for posting so late!
Tara

RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Singleon165

I would love a hosta if we can find something that I can trade for it. Are you looking for something in particular?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Blake,
I have been meaning to start an herb garden, so whatever you can spare would be appreciated.
Is there any particular size or color hosta you are looking for?


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Singleton165,

I like the large variegatated type.
Thats great that you are starting a herb garden. Do you need chives, sage, lemon balm, spearmint, peppermint, catnip? I think I might also have a marorjam and a Germain thyme and I can probably divide some of my winter savory. Let me know which ones you need.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Singleton,
I'd love a hosta. Anything except plain green or green/white. I will try to bring herbs that aren't on Blake's list. I potted up some anise hyssop (annual but self sows) last weekend and look for other things.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Thanks singleton165. That sounds great.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Blake,
Can I get a sage and/or marjoram...gotta love shopping on GW!

Defrost49 - One non-plain hosta it is!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Garden Swap Buds,

Here it is Thursday already, the last couple days before Annie's Swap. Annie, I know you have a 5' brugs for me, but what can I bring for you? How about some calendula seedings from Ireland? I got some seeds while at Ashford Castle and they are only about 3 inches tall, but they have a nice pedigree, LOL. Or anything else from my list? Another Japanese primula maybe?
. Defrost49 - So glad your primula is doing well. What does OTOH mean?

Susan - I can bring you a primula for a splish splash geranium. Or choose from my list below.

Marsha - I'm returning your large pot from last year. Is there something I can put in it for you? :-)

Whitegarden - I'd love an iris immortality. What shall I bring you?

Kathie - I'd like to know how to kill moles/voles. They've moved in! How'd you kill yours? I'd like one of your hollyhocks and black columbine if you have enough. What would you like?

Blake, What is firecracker? I can take a piece of my astilbe peach blossom for you. Does goat's beard get gi-normous?

Lisa - Can I bring you something?

Tara - Welcome to Annie's Swap. You will love it. I'd like some snow in summer if you have it. It brings back memories of my neighbor's garden when I was kid in Pennsylvania. Please choose something from my list and let me know.

Ligularia, Desdemona - with yellow flowers
Primula Japonica, Miller's Crimson
Heliopsis, Summer Sun - yellow flowers
One monkshood - deep blue
malva, fastigiata - pink
shasta daisy, Becky
water lillies - common white ones with yellow centers
white valerian - fragrant (IMHO)
Filepandula - Kahone

I have 3/4 primulas potted up and I can do more. Next year (am I getting ahead of myself?) I will have pink ones!
So let me know what I can bring for you.

Deb


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Deb

Lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker'

good in a moist border, at a pond margin, or in a wild garden.
Burgundy foliage and contrasting small yellow flowers. Native perennial.

Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.

I don't have it in a mosit area just a terraced garden and it does fine. It not invasive at all. I would love a piece of your peach astilbe. What can I bring for you?

Goat's beard gets big about six feet tall and wide but it is herbaceos. It is very difficult to divide, you need an ax but I dig up the little seedlings that grow around it.

Hello Singelton165

I shall pot you up some sage and marojam


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Debra,
I'd love a Primula Japonica...can always use more red in the garden!


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi debra. I'll try some white valerian.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi,
I'm really looking forward to the the plant swap. I was going to bring a chicken curry pasta salad.

Sorry, I am completely crazy late in responding to the thread.

For plants I can bring,
Cream foxglove
Ferns
Bleeding hearts (all pink, the wild ones)
Blue mouse ears hosta (I probably only have one)
Oregano
Sage (I've never divided it before, but I'll give it a try)
Happy returns day lilies.
I'll check my chicks and hens, I bet I have some babies looking for a new home
Purple palace heuchera.
Astilbe (I think its pink, but it doesn't love its spot and has never bloomed)
Bright pink creeping phlox (don't know how well they transplant though)
Two massive monatuck (sp?) daisy bushes if I can get them into the car

I had a lot of fun reading through the list, and my wish list (and I know it may be too late):
I love June hostas (I also like other blue hostas or any ones that are particularly tall but not wide, or are really tiny
Hakonchochlea (I totally can't spell that)
Hellebores
Marjoram
Jacob's ladder
Forget me knots.
Jacob's ladder
Dianthus
malva, fastigiata sounds fun
Rose campion (mine that I got last year at Ida's swap didn't come back but I loved it so)
What I really truly need is a plant (s) to plant around my clematis so the roots don't fry. It's in a sunny spot. My preferred color scheme is pink,purple, blue, magenta.
Also....anyone have any extra 1 gallon or 1/2 gallon cheapo pots they don't need? We are embarking on a big garden project, so I'll need to store my perennials while its underway.

See you soon!
Jill and Josie (Josie was -1 month at Idabean's swap last year)


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hello Jill

I would love some cream fox glove and the astilbe.

I can bring you a nice large mature Rose Campion so that it will produce babies for you next year. I can also bring you marojam.


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Hi Jill

I'll have a Jacobs Ladder for you

See you tomorrow rain, shine or wind!

Blake


 o
RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Jill,

I have a couple things you might like to provide shade for your clematis- mine is behind lavendar and seems to do well-(I have a small one I can bring if you want) or I have tons of low mounding pink and white geranium that may do the trick....let me know if you'd like me to bring either. See you Sunday

Josie's snoozing, and just as I went to get my shovel, the skies reopened. I'll definitely bring the digitalis, chicks and hens (as long as the rain hasn't washed them away), and astilbe plus whatever else I can squeeze in timewise.
I'm so looking forward to the Rose Campion, Marjoram, and Jacob's ladder.
Marsha, I would love the lavender (ours didn't come back this year) and the mounding pink geranium.
Thanks!
Jilly

Oh, and Annie...I'll be bringing pasta salad with spinach (and my BF Andy).

Jill, your chicken curry pasta salad sounds really good! I think I can pot up a H. June for you.

Good thing it's raining today...the perfect weather for dividing plants! :)

Hi all,

Wow, that rain today is something! Maybe it will be all rained out by tomorrow. Let's hope.

Blake - I've got peach astible for a goat's beard seedling and a piece of firecracker.

Tara - I'll bring you a Primula Japonica.

White Garden - I'll go pot up the white valerian for you.

JillyLuis - I've got a malva fastigiata for you, for one of your clumps of montauk daisies. Is that right?

Annie - I'll bring you a primula and some of those Irish calendula seedlings. That soup will come in handy if it is chilly!

Kathie - what can I bring you?

See yall tommorow. Hope you are all checking this thread.

Debra
I hope you are going to be able to put the brugs in your car. I picked the smallest one about 5 feet to give you Make sure you put it in a sunny place and give it miracle grow once a week Also remember you have to bring it in for the winter preferably in your basement or cellar. Giving you all this info now as I'm afraid I'll forget tomorrow. ( My memory is really bad lately)
still raining hard but weather info for tomorrow for Goffstown is cloudy with perhaps thunder storms. I'm keeping my fingers crossed We will have a great time regardless. I'm so looking forward to seeing you all

Annie, I think I just saw the same forecast. They're calling for cloudy tomorrow morning and rain after 4pm. We might luck out! I potted up a special plant for you today. I started some Crucianella stylosa from seed (used to be called phuopsis) last year and they are blooming this year. They have the foliage of ground phlox and a flower that looks like amsonia but in pink. Very pretty, and unfortunately very stinky! Sometimes I wonder how something so pretty could smell like a skunk! I never see it available and wanted to share one with you since you always welcome all of us to your house for the swap. I hope you like it!

I was unable to pot anything up this week so I was one of those crazy people out in the pouring rain this morning digging and potting! Oh boy, did I get soaked! But it was a lot of fun thinking about how great the swap will be tomorrow. See you all soon!

Susan I look forward to this plant you are giving me. The other 2( can't remember their names) are doing beautifully and I love them
You are welcome to look around my garden to see if there is anything you might like.
wow the rain is pouring down Hopefully this is the clearing off storm. Glad I live on a hill and do not have to worry about flooding. I'm optimistic that the rain will stop by the morning.

Hello Annie,

Thank you for the great swap! I had a wonderful time as usual and would like to thank everyone who traded with me or gifted me a plant. I am looking fowarded to planting everything this week if it ever stops raining. It is still pouring out here on the coast. My angelica is totally bent over from all this rain!

Annie, I think I overdosed on your scones! They were soooo good!! Would you please share the recipe?

It was good to see everyone.

Blake

Many thanks to everyone for the wonderful plants! Josie and I had a wonderful time. I really appreciate all of Josie's new friends who hung out with her. We both had such a stupendous time. I figured out where everything will go and hope to even get things in the ground soon!

RE: NH Plant Swap Part 2 Final Details

Thanks, Annie! GREAT time and so nice to see old friends and make new ones. Happy gardening, everyone!

Dang, I wish I could have made it. But dh got out of hospital today and there was home preparation and attending to be done. I am sure I'm the only one who was kind of hoping for a reschedule. Then I could have come on the rain date. That was selfish of me and I'm glad the weather gods did not pay attention.

I have enjoyed my garden this week. It was poppy week. The red ones are over 4and a half feet tall. The white (with dark purple splotches inside) is very fragile and blows by in a day or two; The oranges are sturdy and there are still some buds coming along, if they don't rot in the rain. One year I put little bags on the half open buds during a heavy rain....rain bonnets, can you imagine? Nutty gardeners.

Looking forward to next year when I'll join you.

Thanks Annie and everyone for a great swap and potluck lunch. Susan, thank you for the fascinating visit to your garden in the afternoon. I saw shrubs I had never heard of. The Japanese maple over your patio is beautiful.

I made a full day of it. I was too early so I visited Uncanoonuc Perennials which opened at 9am. On the way home I took a detour to Tenny Farm in Antrim which has a nice selection and prices. However, still didn't find any lemon gem marigolds. Tried to grow them from seed but it was too old.

Hello Idabean,

Good thoughts that your husband is doing well. So sorry you didn't make the swap, it would have been great to see you again. But the best news is that you don't have to wait a whole year for Annie's swap. She is hosting another one the last sunday in September! Hope to see you there!!

Hi Swappers,

Boy we all had a wonderful time! And no rain either. Thank you to Annie for hosting and great onion soup. And thank you to everyone who swapped with me or plain out gave me stuff. The food table was groaning with fantastic creations. A couple of Marsha and Sheila's friends requested the recipe for Texas Caviar, so I am posting here. Anyone else want to post their recipe? I wouldn't mind the one for the round eclair -- which caused me to go off my South Beach stringent two weeks.... aarggh! My own fault. I simply could not resist it OR a piece of this amazing chocolate cake with walnuts and some kind of liquor in the batter? Was it amoretto? (sp) Thanks again everyone. I missed seeing Beryl's smiling face...

Texas Caviar

1-1/2 ears of corn - cooked
1 med red pepper chopped
1 can of black beans
1/3 c chopped fresh cilantro
2 t. ground cumin
4 T olive oil
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 c cider vinegar

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Refrigerate for an hour or overnight for flavors to meld. Serve with Tostito Scoops.

David and I had a wonderful time. My mini was packed to the roof on the way home. David was done planting his treasure by 4:00 I think, but my plants are lined up on the veggie garden path and will be there until the weather clears.

So good seeing all of you and thank you to everyone who swapped with me. Already looking forward to September!
