wanted: bell county plant swap this weekend, no fooling

The plant swap for the Temple/Belton/Killeen/Bell County and the surrounding areas is this weekend on Saturday April 1. It will be held in Belton at the North County Annex:1605 N Main Street (next to the Scott & White Clinic).

The County Extension Office and other USDA offices are in this building. Its also the home of the Bell County Master Gardeners. Not only will we be able to sit and visit with each other while exchanging our plants, but we'll also be able to see a veggie garden in the works. The Master Gardener Greenhouse is also at this site. We should be able to tour this during the swap.

Look around your yard, divide those plants that really need it, make some cuttings, gather up the extras you have sitting around and come on. You can swap plants, cuttings, seeds, magazines, books or just about anything related to gardening.

Don't forget: April 1st. 9am-noon. Plan on bringing a chair along with a dish to share for lunch. Parking is around back. We'll meet in the back at the picnic table. Bring a friend if you like.

I'm mentioning it again in my MG class there today. I don't think that they realize the benefit of posting that they are coming. I'd be glad to pre-arrange some of my trades if someone wrote me. Otherwise, they'll get what's left after everyone else has gone through my plants.

Were you able to contact those couple of ladies nearby to see if they were interested in coming? My new GW friend here in Temple, has to work that day.

Bring your Wasowski books. I'd LOVE to look through them. Can you reserve our classroom in case of rain?

I REALLY look forward our hosting our FIRST swap. This is going to be so much fun. See you Saturday. I'm also making my t-shirt layout presentation to my MG class today.
