Spring Swap '09

Hi all,

I've hosted the past few Spring Swaps and I put it out there recently that I'd love to do it again this spring if that works for the majority. I've heard from a few of you that that works out for many because I am somewhat central-Castle Rock- in between Denver and Colorado Springs.

Looking at my calendar I am going to say that Saturday, May 9th looks to be a good day. I think last year we did it the day before Mother's Day too. I chose that date because the first weekend is a bit too early to plant the tender stuff like tomatoes. I'm not able to do the weekend of the 17th due to Taekwondo testing for my son. And the following weekend is Memorial Day.

So, May 9th, Saturday sound good?

Looking forward to it!

Charlene

I promised Charlene Id post all the standard swap information when she started the thread, so here it is!

~ We'll start the swap with a pot luck. Your dish can be absolutely anything! Hot dishes, cold dishes, appetizers/finger foods, salads, sweetsanything you think others would enjoy! (Are you gonna make your YUMMY spinach salad again, Charlene?)

~ And when our tummies are full, well do the actual swapping. Before we start picking plants, well once again have everybody who brought plants briefly tell what they brought so everyone knows whats available to help them decide what theyd like to have. Then well do the swapping the same way weve been doing it at all the recent swaps. Everyone will draw a number for the "first two rounds" of picking plants. That way everyone has a pretty good chance to get the one or two things they want the most. Then well open it up to just walking around and picking out whatever anyone wants.

~ Please be sure your plants are labeled one way or another. Either stick a tag in the pot, or staple a piece of paper with the name onto the pot, or just write the name of the plant on the pot with a marker or crayon. Its easy to think youre gonna remember the names of the things you take homeand even easier to forget them by the time you do get home!!!

~ ALSO, if youre earmarking something for someone whos requested it, please be sure to clearly mark on the pot somehow who its for. In other words When people post on the swap thread what theyre gonna bring, it IS ok to say youd like to have something earmarked for you! The person bringing that/those item(s) will mark them with your name and be sure you get them at the swap. Everything at the swap that isnt earmarked goes into the pool and gets picked starting with the first two roundsno early picking on the day of the swap!

~ ANDnobody needs to have either any plants or any food to be welcome at the swap! At past swaps there has always been plenty to go around. And were getting together as much to swap gardening talk and friendship as to swap plantsso come regardless of how much you do or don't have to bring!

I think thats all the basic information. Let me know if I forgot something, Charleneor anybody else!

Now
Who wants to come???

Hi Charlene! Thanks for hosting again. I need to check with DH on the date. He has a business trip in May, but I'm not sure of the dates. I'll post as soon as I know something.

RE: Spring Swap '09

I would love to come and have been looking forward to it but we are in Oregon Saturday May 2 and Saturday May 9! :(

If the dates do change, YES, we will be there. If they don't, we will be there in spirit.

And, if I can't make it and if anything good pops up this year, I'll post it and find a way to get it to the swap.

I am expecting Campanula punctata, "cherry bells" babies this year and they are so pretty!

Fingers crossed for a different weekend...

RE: Spring Swap '09

Hi all, my travel schedule can be a little hectic, but so far there is nothing on May 9th! I will be so thrilled to attend my first swap if it stays this date. I hope that my first attempt at wintersowing is at least somewhat successful, so I will have something to share. If nothing grows, at least I am a good cook... : )


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Again, wish you all the best, but I simply can't. I am in charge of the lawn and garden department at the local Alco. I have to be there, particularly on spring weekends. :)

Nice to see you back, Charlene. :)

Thanks for hosting again this year. I missed the fall swap, but will be there on the 9th. Cabin fever is killing me. Gloria

 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Hello,

Glad to hear from everyone about coming to the swap.

Jennifer, I'm really sorry and I feel bad for those that can't make the 9th but that seems to be the only weekend I am able to host.

After years (and thousands of $) my son is getting his black belt in Taekwondo and we are really tied up with preparation and testings (up in Breckenridge) the month of May. The only other weekend is Memorial Day holiday.

I could pull some stuff aside for anyone that can't be there.

Can't WAIT for spring!

Charlene


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Congrats to your son.

I may be able to attend-- possibly with my 2-year-old in tow this year if DH is traveling by then. She's a bit more up for a drive these days, and I think she'll be reasonably well behaved.


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Well...we switched our travel plans!

I really enjoy the swaps and getting together with like-minded folks, especially such a nice group such as yourselves!

So, we will be there.

I already know that I'll have strawberries and raspberries and we shall see what is available as the date gets closer.

I accidentally gave one raspberry plant to two people at the fall swap. I had offered it to someone but I thought they had changed their mind. And then, I gave it to someone else who was unable to take it because the first person really did want it. My bad!! I'd like to offer another raspberry to that person. Just let me know if you'd like one or two.

so excited....

Jennifer


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

I will probably be there. I probably won't have too much to trade except for a few houseplant cuttings, alas, but will certainly be willing to adopt a few plants so they won't be homeless.

I'm looking forward to this!

RE: Spring Swap '09

I would like to come, but will have no idea if it will be feasible until we get closer. That is finals week, I start a new job today, Target, and they expect me to work Saturdays, then there is the regional playoffs for baseball, if the team makes it, and my mother's birthday. I will have to let you know when we get closer.

RE: Spring Swap '09

Nice to see people interested in the swap :)

I planted a bed of spinach with a row cover over it today. We'll see if it makes it to the spring swap to use home grown spinach for my salad! Two years ago it was awesome but last year it didn't work out. We'll see!

Charlene


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

It's too bad I can't get there. I could have brought a peach pie, made from my own peaches.

Everything I've read says to start spinach, lettuce, and peas pretty much now. This week I'm definitely getting some seeds going.

Hi all,

I was out for a while today potting up some things and sticking cuttings of other things for the Spring Swap, and it reminded me that when I did that first post about the swap I forgot to put in that Im about 98% certain Ill be able to make it to this one again. Im senior enough by nowfinallythat I have at least some realistic idea of what schedule Ill be able to get for the following month, and Im on "reserve" in May, which means the only thing Im bidding for is which days off Ill have, so I have high hopes. Keep your fingers crossed for me, and Ill let you all know for sure near the end of April.

Im not gonna post what Im bringing yet, because I want to wait till Im sure theyre gonna make it, but so far I have 40 plants, and I KNOW some of them will make itand probably most. Havent even started digging up the mums and other old stuff Im gonna dig to divide or give awaywhich is good, because I need to go get another bale of soil before I do that! And, in the unlikely event that I cant make it to this one, Ill be sure to find a way to get everything there.

For those of you who have said you need to wait till closer to the swap to see if you can make it, fingers crossed for you.

And for those of you who wont be able to make it to this one, set your sights on the Fall Swap, which will probably be the beginning of September again. And when youre dividing things over summer, be sure to stick a little piece in a pot for the Fall Swap! :-)

7 weeks till The Day!

Well I was out today potting up a few more things, and the things I did the other day are almost all looking really good, so Im virtually certain theyre gonna make it. So heres a beginning list of the things Im bringing to the swap. These are all styrofoam cup size! There are still a few things Im not too sure about, so Ill wait to post them later!

8 Geranium dalmaticum Compact Rose, Dwarf Cranesbill

5 Anemone sylvestris, Snowdrop anemone

1 Alcea rosea - mixed colors, single hollyhock

1 Coreopsis auriculata Nana, Dwarf Coreopsis

8 Sedum pachyclados

6 Sedum spurium Tricolor

4 Sedum reflexum Blue Spruce

5 Sedum Angelina

6 Sempervivum, Hen and Chicks since I dont know the names of most of the varieties I have, Ive assigned them letters! This one is variety/letter D. Those of you who have gotten hen & chicks from me before will need to check to see if this is different from those youve gotten in the past. These are nice little plants. When I divided D last fall, I stuck 6 little bunches of the leftovers into a corner of the garden so they could root over winter. I just dug them up and put them in cups todaynicely rooted! Since hen & chicks can vary so much, heres a pic of this one in its winter color.

Ill post pics of the other things Im bringing on a separate "picture" thread so the pics dont slow this thread down too much.

Well, I still don't know for sure if I can come or not, but DH is going to try and catch a Friday flight instead of a Saturday one, so as soon as he purchases his ticket, I'll let you know if I'm coming.

I hope that I'm able to make it, because I've already potted up a couple of things to bring!

Lilacs, where do you live? I will (most likely) be coming from Lafayette. If you are somewhere in between Lafayette & Castle Rock, perhaps I could swing by and give you a ride or maybe someone else is close by where you are located. Let us know & perhaps we can help get you there.

RE: Spring Swap '09

Thanks! I think I probably am on the way. I live in Aurora near Mississippi and Peoria. That's only about a mile west of I-225. I would really like to go. Maybe I can bring that peach pie at that.


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Im wondering about your upcoming "plant swap" in Castle Rock, CO is that more of a private event, where everyone already knows everyone? Or, is it a big huge deal where people come from all over the place? Can newbie's go?

I'm in Woodland Park, CO. Not too far away. The problem is, I'm still really new to this area, and having some trouble getting a handle on this 'high altitude' situation. What I really need to do is connect with some more experienced gardeners in my area... because at this point, I've basically researched myself past to point of confusion. And the search engine isn't working now... it's driving me nuts.

I have all kinds of things I could trade... but have never been to a plant swap before. I accidentally started way to many seeds last month... baby plants have already taken over my kitchen, and it's too cold to kick them outside. I have gobs of seeds that I've never even tried yet. I went a little overboard on a recent plant order that will be here by April 25th. (Please tell me I'm not the only person who has done this.) And then there are those nice established perennials that need to be thinned out anyway. (Will I even be able to dig those up by May up here, or will it still be too cold?)
I'm so stir crazy for winter to be over. It's nice outside just long enough for spring fever to kick in... and now today we're having another blizzard.

RE: Spring Swap '09

convexles,
I have never been to a swap before, and I haven't met these nice folks yet (except one) and I AM going to the swap. I'm very much looking forward to it. Reading the swap threads from last year, even if you didn't have anything to trade, you would be welcome.

I'm about an hour's drive east from you in Falcon. One of the little tomatoes in my basement will be moving to a friend's house in WP when it's safe to send it west.. She's not an experienced gardener though. She might try a salad garden for the first time this year. The tomato will likely be in a pot on her deck.

This weather is so frustrating after having all those nice warm days in January, February & March. Now that it's not way too early to start some things, it's way to cold!

 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

GreenBean,
I am right there with you! I managed to restrain myself from planting in February because I have finally been around long enough to know this would happen... These snowstorms are still frustrating though!

I'd like to come if the party is still open. Do we have a sign up sheet for the potluck or anything? I don't want to be the 5th person bringing potato salad. :)

I will have a few lavenders, a few cherokee purple tomatoes, some hollyhocks (i think!) and maybe a few more. Looking forward to meeting everyone!


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

SisterK, are you interested in picking up another straggler? I would love to go but we're down to 1 vehicle which hubby will be taking to work that day, and can't tell at this point if I'm going to have ANY plants to bring... Wintersowing only started for me during our big March snowstorm (didn't want to have everything sprout in the early March weather that we always have, so I like to wait until the first March storm), and I have some seeds inside that are either slow starters or suffering from the dreaded damping off (a couple have sprouted).

MIGHT have--plants will be small though:
*generic red tomatoes, and maybe some others. Does anybody else plant 83 seeds and 47 varieties even though they only have room for 6 plants!?! (and if you deny it, we'll all know you're fibbing!!)
*pansies
*petunias
*variety of peppers
*basil--maybe?

dryad58, will you please earmark a Cherokee Purple Tomato for me? I have tried starting some, but they haven't sprouted for me (grr!)

I look forward to my first swap!

RE: Spring Swap '09

Hi Convex! Welcome to RMG! Anybody who finds their way here to RMG is invited to the Swaps, so you are definitely invited! We just started having the swaps in spring of 07, and none of us knew each other at the first one! Well, actually, those of us who were regularly posting on RMG felt like we already knew each otherbut we had never met in person!

I checked, and you have Private Messaging enabled on your GardenWeb account (and an email address listed), so when we get closer to the swap, Charlene will be contacting everyone via either a PM or email, and a week or so before the swap shell be emailing her address and directions to her house to those who plan to come.

Dryad, the only cutoff limit for coming to the swap is to let us know in time for Charlene to contact you for an email address and send you the directions! I checked and you have PMing enabled, so watch for a post from her. I dont know if shell PM everybody individually or if shell ask you to PM her with your email address. Arent you up in Cheyenne? Are you really gonna drive all the way down? Last year Bonnie drove in from Silt (on the Western Slope) and were hoping shell be able to again this spring, and another person who rarely posts here drove in from the Colorado/Kansas border. Now were spreading out to the north!

MayBerry, welcome to RMG to you too! The same as I said abovewatch for a post from Charlene about if shes gonna PM everybody for addresses or if she wants you to PM her. She doesnt have time to do much posting around here right now, but shell be back! And with your seedlings, be careful to not keep them too wet. By the time you can see something coming up, you should already be leaving the surface of the soil dry before watering them again. A lot of people bring small seedlings to the Spring Swap. The Fall Swap is usually more perennial divisions.

Our potluck sort of just "happened!" At the first swap at Charlenes house, she said shed make a spinach salad, and then some of the people who didnt have plants to bring said they were gonna bring something to eat, and then some others who brought plants brought food too, so weve just sort of kept up the tradition, and anybody who wants to bring something, does. Weve never had any sort of a list of whos bringing what, but if you know for sure what youre bringing and want to post it here, itll give others a heads up. One thing I have noticed is that we always get plenty of dessert-type thingsnot that I want people to quit bringing them since I love sweets!

For all of you, read the second post at the top of this thread for more info on how the swap works, and if you still have any questions, come ask.

Andfor those of you who havent signed in on the Whos Here thread yet, come tell us a little more about yourselves!

Only about 4 more weeks,
Skybird

RE: Spring Swap '09

Charlene, can you add me to the email list please. I'm still way up in the air about whether or not I can come - family issues and school events, and now a possible short notice trip to Oklahoma may be coming up.

RE: Spring Swap '09

Sister K & Mayberry, I'm also a newby in Lafayette (and based on her pics about 2 blocks away from Sister K - catty corner from the Lion's Gate/Dovehouse). I was hoping to carpool too. I hadn't committed to the swap yet cuz I have a wedding in Houston and a graduation in Flagstaff (AZ), but with the economy I'm not betting on plane tix to either. So SS'09 is WINNING! Nothing to swap yet as I am puzzled by collecting the seeds. Something I hope to learn more about at the swap! I'll bring something for the PL. I look forward to getting more information!


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Good news! DH is coming back from his trip on the Wednesday, or Thursday before the swap, so I should be able to come.

Since there's less than a month until the swap, should we start a thread for posting what you'll be bringing (plants and/or food), or wishlists?

Can't wait to see some familiar faces, and meet some new ones!

Bonnie


 o
Oh nos! :(

I cant make it to the swap after all. My dad has kidney disease but is in the early stages so I am flying back home to the Seattle area to spend time with him and the rest of my family. I'm sorry I will miss yet another swap :( I hope you all have a lot of fun sharing plants, yummy food and conversation. I will miss you guys!


 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Hello there!

Swap time is getting closer! We were gone for two weeks and now have two baby girls in our care so life's been a bit busy.

I will work on getting out a mass email to everyone with directions and details in the next couple of weeks. If your email address is not on your "my page" then you'll need to send me a private email through "my page" so I can get the info to you.

Glad to see all who can come!

Azura-I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. We live so close if there's anything you want we can save for you. We live so close I'd love to get together with you another time.

Looking forward to it!

Charlene

RE: Spring Swap '09

Oh wow, this site is officially the most lucky find I've EVER run across on Google! I'd absolutely looooove to go. This is my second post to be made on this site, so I know I'm a complete stranger, but I'd really really enjoy going. I don't know if I'd have anything to bring plant-wise as I just moved in to a small apartment, but I can bring food and it all sounds like so much fun! :)

 o
RE: Spring Swap '09

Wow! I finally got around to making a list of possible attendees, and I came up with 20 hope to be there plus a couple more might be able to come! If that really happens, itll be the biggest Spring Swap weve had yet! For those of you that are new to RMG, this will be the third year for our swaps.

Azura, Im sorry you wont be able to make it. Fingers crossed you can come to the Fall Swap. I hope youre able to have a good time when you see your family. If theres anything I post that Im bringing that youd like to have, let me know and Charlene can hold it for you.

Andall you newbies that hope to make it to the swap, come on over to the Whos Here in 2009 thread and tell us a little bit about yourselves! Thats one of the ways we get to know each other around here! And if you have time to read the whole thread, youll find out a little bit about the other folks around here. And if you dont have a "public" email address listed on your bio page, be sure you send Charlene a Private Message with your email address so she can send you the directions to her house.

It wont be long now! For those of you that are bringing divisions, try to get them in pots now so they have a couple weeks to grow some new roots.

See you all soon,
Skybird

RE: Spring Swap '09

Hello, everyone! I am coming out of hibernation finally at this point in the year. I would like to try to attend the swap again this year, but I am not 100% sure at this point. We were planning on buying a house this May so I didn't start really anything because I did not want to move it. But now, it seems that the move date is going to be pushed back into June and I am pining for plants I didn't start. I am planning on buying a lot of plants for when we do finally move.

So I would like to come, but I will not have anything to trade except maybe some strawberries or maybe some rhubarb starts from seed. If I come I will be bringing something to eat and holding back to pick up any straggling plants when everyone else has had their picks.

No hanging back allowed, Lindy! I swear, the biggest problem we have at the swaps is getting people to take the plants!!! At the very first swap at Charlenes house, Spring 07, we couldnt get anybody to say what they wanted! You were there! Remember, everybody just kind of stood there and wouldnt admit they wanted anything! I thought I was gonna have to bring half of my stuff back home that time!

Soits the same for everybody, Lindy! (That includes you, Holly/H Giest!) Whether youre able to bring plants or not, you get an equal chance to get what you want. If you see something posted on the "picture" thread that you want, say so! Im bringing over 80 plants already, and there will be more! And Im SO not the only one bringing stuff! There will be plentylike there always is. (And I, for one, definitely dont want to wind up bringing anything back homethat I brought!) Whatever you get, you can always pot it up into bigger pots if necessary to keep it until you move into your new home! June isnt that far away!

Why dont you post your strawberries and possible rhubarb seedlings over on the picture thread. Im SURE somebody will be interested in the strawberries. They always seem to go!

And everybody else! Check out the swap Picture Thread where people are starting to post what they hope to bring (with or without pictures!), and if you see something you know for sure you want, let the person/people know, and theyll mark it for you.

So far, including "guests," Im showing 28 people who hope to come!

Skybird

P.S. Charlene, just to let you know, Im bringing name tags, sign in sheets, and the "numbers" again!

RE: Spring Swap '09

Gonna bump this up again since were heading into the home stretch!

If youre seeing this for the first time and would like to come, let us know immediately. If your actual email address isnt public on your bio page, PM it to Charline or me so we have a way to contact you.

If you know what youre bringing (or hope to be bringing) and havent done so yet, please go to the Spring Swap Picture thread and let us know what you might have.

If you havent yet, go to the picture thread and see if theres anything youd like to have reserved for youand let the person whos bringing it know that youd like to have it.

The weather prediction for Saturday, as of now, is for temps in the mid 70's! We have been SO lucky at past swaps, so lets all keep our fingers crossed that theyre right and we have another beautiful day.

See you all soon,

No because about an hour after I get back, I need to pick up my 15-year-old who is helping a friend with her hair for prom. My roomie didn't bother to check the calendar when she booked her flight, she just knew to schedule it for sometime in the afternoon since I work nights. I can't get too mad, she's going to Oklahoma to help get my other mom sorted and packed to move into an assisted living facility, which is more important. :-)

Hi Dafy,

Is there anything thats been posted that youd like us to hold for you so you could pick it/them up sometime? Id be glad to bring them homeyou know where I liveor Im sure Charlene wouldnt mind hanging onto some things for you to pick up if youd rather go that wayI think you might be closer to her than me. If you want to drive up herewhen Im home and not sleep walkingI could show you my garden in spring, or if you came when Im on a trip, I could tell you where I put themand you could still tour the yard by yourself!

Were running out of time, so let me knowemail a listif theres something you want.

Well be looking for you at the Fall Swap!

RE: Spring Swap '09

I had a wonderful time today -- sorry I couldn't stay longer! I would have loved to take home a few more plants... But my loss is someone else's gain.

The food was great, the company was great, and the plants were great! Thank you, everyone, for your generosity.

I hope to see everyone again at the fall swap. And I hope I won't be so tightly scheduled, so that I won't be so stressed out.
