I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

Please let me know if there is any interest in a fall swap at my place. The location would be northcentral Arkansas, near Calico Rock, south of Mountain Home, AR and north of Mountain View, AR. I am also interested in setting the date in September, either a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Let me know your preference, please. I will provide a barbecue.

There is room for camping and a water/elec hookup, and an 1860 log cabin, BYO mattresses.

RE: I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

Hi Jay. A swap in the central AR area would be great. Count me in along with my daughter and probably my girlfriend who I know would enjoy! Either Saturaday or Sunday would be fine for us. Let us know what we can bring to help out with the BBQ.

Sounds good to me..not that far. Maybe I can talk Beerhog into coming, too. A Sunday would be best for me. I've got a lot of "stuff" I need to find homes for.

RE: I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

HI Jay, i'd love to come if i can. I've said i'd come to 2 others and was in hospital both times. I feel so good i'm sure to make it this time. The 25 & 26 of Sept. have got family reunion. But can make it any other time. Let me know what I can bring. Have Iris and Daylillies i can bring to trade.
thanks, oakleif

RE: I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

Ok, this is looking like there is enough interest, I am in contact with at least four others, so that makes eight, including myself. Let's give it until next weekend and maybe others will see this notice. Perhaps you three might be able to spread the word among some acquaintances either in your network of friends or via GW. Thanks for responding and offering to help. For anyone else, be sure to let me know what date you might prefer, but I will second the motion for a Sunday event.

RE: I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

Jay, I'd love to come if I can get off work. I work on Sunday but am off on Friday and Saturday. I've been taking off quite a bit lately so don't know if I can get off or not. Let me know the date please and I'll try to make it.

Judy, am I on your way there? If so, we can get together and go part of the way together if I get to go.

RE: I'm Planning a fall Plant Swap

I'm in the area near Fairfield Bay. Anyone needing a ride is more than welcome. My daughter has a van we'll probably use so there will be extra room.

Jay have you decided on a date yet?
