RULE'S:
1. Sign ups will be till April 10th.
2. Partners posted April 12th.

Ok! So who's going to be first to sign up. I know I am ready to dig up some extra plants.

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Thanks Alana for signing up. Having two swaps going at the same time for April is going to be taxing for sure. Hope your week is wonderful with sunny weather.

sounds like fun! sign me up!

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Ellie, it is too early for me to dig up anything. We are still in a cold spell and there isn't really a good warm up coming. As a matter of fact, we are due a record breaking low Tuesday night of 15. Everything is way behind. Sorry I can't join in but I would need more choices of things to dig up than what is out there right now.

Margo

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

What a beautiful day again! Worked outside all day and I am tired tonight.

Welcome to the swap. We have the following participating.
Poisondartfrog - Alana
Dmkelly - Dawn
Pinkiris

Sorry that you won't be able to join Margo but I think that is a little too cold to be digging up plants. It still gets a little frosty at night but then warms up during the daytime.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Sounds Great!! Sign me up. Thank you.


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I understand that I will have to send out one box of plants to someone that is assigned to me as a partner. If this is correct, I'd like to join.

Susan

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

What another beautiful day out. Worked in the yard again and the sprinkler guy came and turned on the sprinklers. Yea! It is just so dry here.
Susan you are correct in regards of sending one box to your partner when they get assigned.

The following have signed up for the swap:
Poisondartfrog - Alana

Sure had a lot of flowers that didn't make it this year. Most of the coneflowers and dianthus died and they were suppose to be perennials. Just saw on the weather forecast that it is going to start raining tomorrow. Guess we need it anyway.

Have a good evening.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Are cuttings...rooted or unrooted...allowed in this swap? Also, will we get any indication from our swap partner what they might be interested in, or just send random stuff? Thanks!


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

count me in.

margie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Good morning everyone. Well today the rain is suppose to come for the next 10 days. Ugh! I need to work in the yard.

Risinsun...to answer your question, I think it would be a fine to email your partner and see just what they would be interested in. For this swap lets just send plants that are well rooted from the outside. No houseplants or cuttings unless your partner wants them.

Welcome to the swap risinsun and craftie 2.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

It would be helpful to update your want list.

Susan


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Please add me to the swap. Thanks! :)


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Welcome to the swap bromeliad_lover.

With temperatures here in the 50's, there should be lots of things I can dig. But its suppose to rain for the next 3 days. I will be going to Lewiston, ID for the week-end and they are always way ahead of us in the gardens.

The following have signed up for the swap:
Poisondartfrog - Alana
Dmkelly - Dawn
Pinkiris
Kelli9699
browneyedsusan
farmergirl2009
risinfun
craftie2
bromeliad_lover

It's not raining right now, so shall go out and see how much I can get done.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Happy Saturday everyone!

It was brought to my attention, that everyone should update their wish list since it would be helpful when choosing partners. Next week when the names are drawn it also might be helpful to email your partner and see what they might be interested in and get their gardening zone.

I shall be leaving shortly and be back late Sunday afternoon. Have a wonderful day!

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

We got back from our little trip a little early. Had a wonderful time....but of course it rained the whole time while we were there plus at home also.

We drove to Lewiston, ID area. Spent all day yesterday going to craft stores, fabric stores and nurseries. Had a wonderful time but glad to be back home. Of course being in a warmer climate, the flowering trees and bushes were already in bloom and so many of the plants in the gardens. Nice to see flowers.

We have 3 more days to sign up for this swap if anyone is still interested.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Don't forget that tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the swap. Partners will be posted on the 12th.

I need to stop at the post office today and get a box also. Thought I had some. Sky is clear so looks like a gardening day after all.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I want to clarify about the box size. Do you mean the small VHS size, or the next size up (which I THINK they actually call medium, though could be wrong). Thanks!


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Hi everyone,
I got a small flat rate box at the P.O. and I looked at that and decided that wasn't going to work. There is no way a person can get 3-4 plants in that. I know I said a small box but I think we are going to have to go with the medium box.

Today is the last day to sign up so tomorrow I will have my son draw the names and will get them posted.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Can I join? If so I ask in!

I know that I listed it "twice" so to speak, but was the only way I knew to make sure everyone was getting a package back.

You will have to contact the person you are to send to for an address. I have some address's but not all. And at that time, you might ask them what they are interested in whether annuals, perennials, colors etc. I did notice that most have nothing listed in the have or wants. I am thinking that we will have to use a medium size box also. Don't know what I was thinking small I guess I am use to sending seeds.

Have a great weekend!

Ellie

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Browneyedsusan AND pinkiris -

Bromeliad_lover is my sister. I recently helped her set up her account on here...not sure how we missed putting in her e-mail address. I'll help her address that issue, but in the mean time, browneyedsusan , IF you want to e-mail me your info (address and plant preferences), I will make sure she gets it. And pinkiris, I will send you her info. She is still figuring out the website, lol.

Thanks,
Brandi

 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Well at least we have one email solved. I have spent a lot of time on the web looking for kelli9699's name to pop up elsewhere so that I can try to contact that way. I will keep checking around though.

Is anyone else having any problems?

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Risinsun (Brandi), I e-mailed you yesterday and haven't heard back. Did it make it to you?

Dawn

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Kelli9699, still haven't gotten anything from you. If you can't get me by e-mail for some reason, please let me know.

Thanks!
Brandi

Brandi,

I sent you an email. I didn't get your email though. Not sure why, but hopefully you got mine.

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Just checking in to make sure everyone was able to contact their partner. Let me know if there are any problems.

Was going to start digging plants today but we have a very windy cold front coming in....and its too cold to dig. I was afraid the plant roots would freeze. Even the outside dog water dish was frozen until noon when I discovered it.

It's an inside day that is for sure.

Ellie

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

bromeliad_lover......

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I just had to share the cutest story with someone. I have a greenhouse at school and that's where I've been starting my seeds this year. My box of seeds was on my desk so I could decide what to start next. My first period walked in and asked about it so the lesson plan went out the window and we went to the green house. After showing them my starts I gave them each a new 6-cell container and free range of my seed collection. If you could have seen the smiles on their faces!! Some only planted one thing, others have six different things. Less than half of them had ever planted a seed before so they were handling the seeds like new born babies, afraid to hurt them or plant them too deep. The kicker that made me mist... A 17 year old boy came up to me with a serious face and asked "Will my flower be ready by Mother's Day?" I about cried right there. I love my job!!,


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Ellie (and Dawn),
I know the deadline for mailing is tomorrow, and I intended to mail then, but the weather here is horrible. Rain, rain, rain, colder, and rain. I hope neither of you will mind that I wait until Monday to mail.
My apologies,
Alana


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Alana.....don't worry about it. It has been raining here for 2 days and I am not going out to dig and get a cold again. It was down to 22* a couple of mornings ago. That is too cold for me to work outside.

I think everyone understands.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I'm back on track, but almost forgot to post and had to come back, lol. Dawn's package is ready for the mailman to pick up today. Sorry about the delay! I have the DC and will post it later.
Alana

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

The ground was a little frozen this morning but finally got Jayeanne's box ready and mailed. The DC# is:

I am truly sorry, but I have to back out of all trades at this time. I have been ill and in the hospital lately. Unfortunately, can not up hold my end of the trade at this time. I am terribly sorry for everyone's inconvenience.


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

It looks like we have a problem here. Kelli9699 just dropped out so I need to see who has not sent their box out so that we can do some switching around. PLEASE POST if you have not sent.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Kelli9699 - It's ok, things happen. We hope you feel better! Let me know when you are well enough to plant things, and I will still send you a box of plants.

Ellie - I haven't sent mine out yet, as I was supposed to send to Kelli9699. Will be glad to send to someone else.

Thanks,
Brandi

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I have not been able to send my off yet. money is real tight right now cant send off till later in the week. sorry it took me so long to get back. I am so sorry for the inconvenience I have caused .

Margie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I haven't sent mine either. Our nights are still stupid cold so the plants are coming up slowly... hoping that with the next few days being warm I'll see a little more growth and can send Brandi the plants she's interested in.

Dawn


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Well now I don't feel so bad about being late, lol.
It's been an "off" spring, for sure.
Alana

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Alana can you look at the line-up for me.

If risinsun sends to raylynn will that solve the problem so everyone gets a box?

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Yes, looks like that fixed it, Ellie. Risinsun rose to the occasion.


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

A BIG thank you Ellie for a wonderful surprise yesterday! =) Thank you so much for the beautiful card, primrose, sedum, coneflower, daylily, peony, columbine, grape hyacinths...Loved everything! Sorry in the delay of posting but everything is all planted already and again thank you so much Ellie!


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Thank you Alana for checking this for me. I just don't want anyway going without a box and the more I looked at the list, it just didn't seem to be that easy.

Thank you so very much. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Ellie

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I just sent an e-mail to you, raylynn. When you get a chance, e-mail me back and let me know what you would like.

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Oh yes Alana, it's here! With as busy as the week has been, I haven't stopped to get the mail. Saw your post and hurried off to the post office. Found a nice box of plants including day lilies, salvia, painted fern, and a few others not familiar too me, so tonight's reading will be the plant books and web pages. Thank you so much for such a wonderful box!

RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Ellie, can you give an update on who has sent? I started to do that for you but I am afraid I may be missing some because there seems to be a lot of unfinished business.
Thanks, Alana


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Susan

I received a box FULL of wonderful plants from Dawn today (dmkelly). She did such a wonderful job packing them; it was so nice of her to share so many of her super-neat plants with me! Thanks Dawn!

I have not sent a box to raylynn yet, as I have not received an address from her. Requested by both e-mail and on here. Raylynn, if you are reading this, please e-mail me your address. Thanks.

Susan, I will asky my sister today about whether or not she mailed you anything yet, and if not, I'll ask her to go ahead and get that mailed out!

Brandi


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

That's okay Ellie. I'm glad I did not try to post it myself. Things are in a lot better shape than I thought. I was envisioning a flood of bad feedback on the Rate and Review Forum, but it looks like you have it under control and everyone is on point or close to it.
My name's not Sue, but I can be a busybody, lol.
Alana


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I still have not heard back from raylynn regarding sending an address.

I just messaged Susan and told her I was going to send her a box of plants...my sister bromeliad_lover, who was supposed to send to her, has dropped the ball on the swap, but I'm going to take care of it.

I will still send to raylynn if she pops up.

Thanks,
Brandi


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Thanks Brandi for keeping me informed. I haven't had my laptop because a few days ago I spilled a full cup of coffee on the keyboard. What a bummer! but I turned it over real quick and let it drain out. Now it is drying.

Ellie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

I am so sorry I have been off the grid. Things have been so over whelming late I had all the intention to send the plants off on time. All I can say is I am so sorry for the delay. will get this off this week Alana.

Margie


 o
RE: new: mnf - april plant swap

Thank you Margie. I will be looking for it.

Again, thank you very much. I will plant them tomorrow.

I have not heard back from the last email I sent Raylynn. Has anyone seen her name posted on other sites? Alana what else can I do to get her to respond?

This is the last week of the plant sale that I had for 2nd Harvest to support the seed lending library. I have sold 834 plants now at $1 each. Still have probably 700 daylilies yet. But this sure was a good way to clear out some space in my flower beds. Now I can get some new plants. Have a great week everyone!

Ellie


 o

Sent you an email.
