Ok here we go.

Western Pa Plant Swap Saturday June 10th, 3rd Swap

Where: Railroad Supervisors Club, Baden Pa.

Railroad Supervisors Club
Tevebaugh Hollow Road
Baden, PA 15005

You can access Tevebaugh Hollow Rd from either Route 65 in Baden or if your coming from Interstate 79 you can access Tebebaugh Hollow Rd from Conway Wallrose Road.

The supervisors club has no numbered address. But it's not hard to find. Just put in your address in a mapquest or other map program and put in Tevebaugh Hollow Road, Baden, PA 15005

On Route 65 before you get to northern lights there is an exxon gas station, turn left if your coming from Freedom direction, go up that hill follow that road out until you see Baden Economy Fire Department, Turn left, Tevebaugh Road is across from the fire station and it is paved most of the way to the club. The road to turn on where the club is a safe road, just a dirt road, people do live back that road. Cross the little bridge and go a little ways the club is on the left, you can't miss it. (these are directions from last year)

Date & Time: June 10th, 12:00 - ?, last year we were there until 4:00PM

Trading

1) ORGANIZED TRADING: tracking how many plants each person brings and letting them trade for that many plants (so it's not a "grab and run" affair)
2) OPEN TRADING: open trading (where you can just make whatever arrangements you want...this would be good for people who have seed starts and stuff that wouldn't necessarily be counted in on their trade plants)...this would also allow people who just drop in to participate
3) PRE-ARRANGED TRADES: where we'll use this forum to list things we plan to bring for trade and set up "special" pre-arranged trades that aren't part of the general open trading. (use your trade list and this forum - if you are planning to come to the plant swap and want others to look at your trade list and make offers to you, post a note here and let us know so we can look at your trade list - contact - if you want to trade something from someone else's list, contact them directly and make your plans, then, bring the plants you arrange to trade to the plant swap on June 10th).

Demo: If anyone would like to demonstrate anything used for gardening. Example Plant Tag (HINT HINT) Linda.

CHINESE AUCTION: chinese auction where people who want to participate bring a item and get to take part.

Coverd Dish Luncheon: I'll start a new post for so people can post what they would like to bring. HMMMM we had some wonderful dishes last year and great conversation.

If I'm forgetting something please let me know.

Cathy

RE: wanted: western pa plant swap june 10th, 2006

Thanks for doing and arranging all of this for us again Cathy! I would also like one of the Pussy Willows, if you still have them. They sound very interesting.

I will update my trade lists asap. Most of us prolly won't be able to have a complete plant trade list until closer to swap time...I know I won't. If all of my ws stuff takes I'll have lots to bring!! :) I'll let y'all know.

Thanks! Heather

RE: wanted: western pa plant swap june 10th, 2006

Great, I will pot up 3 so far, I'm going to get a picture of this pussy will and I'll email it to you.

Patty, 1000 different perennials sounds wonderful, they will do fine for you, I wintered sown seeds for 3 years and had tons of seeds germinate.

Heather, I'm with you, I need to make a list also.

RE: wanted: western pa plant swap june 10th, 2006

Cathy,
Put me down for a pussywillow, too, if you have some left. I won't have my trade list for a while either.
I did have a thought about those of us that WSed...maybe we could swap HOS clumps. I will try to post a list of what I have WSed soon.

RE: wanted: western pa plant swap june 10th, 2006

Great idea, Gillian, on listing what we have wsed. This is my first year wsing. I'm a little nervous about having things come up. I am one zone lower than most of you, so I may be a bit behind you also. I think I have about 35 containers done so far, with more to go as I collect the containers. I'll get that list together also.\

RE: wanted: western pa plant swap june 10th, 2006

Hi all! Just wanted to post to say that I am still around and still very excited about the swap!

I also have a TON of seeds that I am WSing right now. Way to many to list! Fingers crossed, if all goes well they will make a debut at the swap. My list right now is sparse. THese are things that I know I have for sure because I have so many of, for the most part. These things will probably come along to the swap also. Here is a few things I am WSing:

Phloxs, Hibiscus', Lupine Tutti Frutti, Astrantias, Delphiniums, Celosia, daturas, plenty o' nice Aquilegias, Lychnis', Malvas, Gaillardias.........heck, you name it and it is probably out there. Some of the Phloxs are up and a couple of Dianthus'.

How exciting! I'll put in a link to my trade page. I usually update pretty often so it will change with the weather! :)

I have all my plants potted up and ready to go, but yesterday, I called the YMCA to sign my kids up for thier next group of swim lessons and guess what day the first class is? June 10th at 12:40. I am going to try to convince my hubby to take them alone, but since we have 2 kids in two different classes, he likes us both to be there to watch them. So what am I going to do with these plants now!!!!! Oh well, I may or may not be there, but if I miss it, I hope you all have fun!
