WANTED: Plant trade 3 May 09 San Antonio

Plant trade at my home, 3 May 3:30-6:30. 7001 Spring Leaf 78249
Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends and family. No pets though, as mine will not appreciate the gesture.

If you have nothing to trade at the moment, gardeners need many things to support their plants and will trade for those things also.

This is an eye-to-eye trade, no tickets, just good conversation and old fashioned trading.

I have a few tables and surfaces, but extra card tables or such will be appreciated. Extra plants for those who have no plants to trade are always welcome too. Any plants that you do not wish to take home, will be adopted out, or given to Schultz House. Good homes will be found for them.

Pot Luck: If you would like to eat here, just bring something to share. I will have picnic plates, flatware and napkins available, and I think Carol is bringing ice chests.

Note: This is a trade only, if you would like pieces or parts of plants in my yard, I always happily share, but it must be arranged separately for another time before or after the trade. No digging or snipping during the trade.

2nd Note: If you haven't had your walk yet that day, come early; the new Leon Creek Park Walk/bike path has an access only 1 block away. It is a paved 10' wide accessible walkway that makes for a quite pretty place to walk/ride bikes/blade/ board.

Let me know if you have questions, suggestions or ..........

Hey Vivian! Just saying hi, I can't make it to that swap, as I was already going to be out of town. Hope it goes well and I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. BTW the purple hyacinth bean vines are blooming! It is so much more exciting to have success after having had failure with seeds last year. They are beautiful!

Hi Vivian! I looked up the address and you are only 16 minutes from my house. I'm putting the date on my computer calendar (I love how it reminds me) and looking around for what I can pot up to trade. Not positive I will be there, but will try to come for the pleasure of seeing you all as much as anything.
