Hi Jennifer and Mercer Plant Swappers,

Just saying hello to all my friends I left behind at the Mercer Plant Swap when we moved to Austin last year. I have joined the Austin/San Antonio Plant Swap that meets just south of Austin in Spring and Fall. It is much smaller, but lots of fun. Plant swaps are really catching on. Miss you all.

RE: WANTED: haves and wants for mercer area swap

EEEK! This is beachparty weekend!! I'm not even sure if I'm off yet or not. The schedule here is really screwed up. I am going to do my best to get there. For those of you who don't know beachparty weekend is a huge traffic mess on the island. One year the people had bar-b-que pits on th CAUSEWAY and were cooking chicken! ON THE CAUSEWAY!!!
So if I do get off I hope I can get back on!
Wish me luck! If I can't make it I will be holed up in the house like usual.
Tally Ho!
