2013 Plant Swap
Once again it’s time to announce the CHOPTAG Spring Plant Swap meeting.

This year’s event will be held on May 5th from noon to 3pm at the new home of Tony and Amy Powell located in Northern Kentucky.

The theory is to bring your extra plants and give away more than you accept. That never seems to work for me.

But if you don’t have any plants to trade you’re still invited. You can easily make up for the lack of plants by bringing food! As we get closer to May 5th and you know what extra plants you’ll have post a list here and people can get a sense of what will be available. People have been known to reserve plants so post early and post often.

Remember that EVERYONE is welcome.

Amy's address is 2043 Moffett Rd. Independence, KY. 41051. Looks like it is just off KY 17 in Independence. I'll leave the actual directions to each of you.

I had a bit of a setback this year. I got into a fight with a table saw and had a pretty bad hand injury. I’m healing OK but everything takes me two or three times longer to do. I did manage to get some seedlings potted up and here is what I’ll have available for the Plant Swap. I only have 1 or at the most 2 of each available so get your order in early. :mrgreen:
Aker's West Virginia
Big Rainbow
Brandywine, Quisenbury
Cherokee Chocolate
Dixie Golden Giant
Eva Purple Ball

Italian Sweet - out
Japanese Black Trifele
Kellogg's Breakfast

Sorry to hear about your accident. My father-in-law got in that same fight a few years ago, and he lost too. Glad you are recovering and able to get back to some things you love.

If they are still available, I would love to have a Vinson Watts and an Italian Sweet plant.

Got ya down for a Vinson Watts and an Italian Sweet

After I promised Tim the plants he requested I went back to update my plant count and realized I didn’t start any Black Cherry this year. :cry: So if anyone has an extra BC I’d like to have one.

Barbee April 14, 2013 05:24 PM

My list:
Black Cherry
Black Krim
Brandywine Sudduth
Captain Lucky
Cowlick's Brandywine
Dana's Dusky Rose
Fish Lake Oxheart (clear epi)
Hege German Pink
Henderson's Winsall (this one is iffy. 0% germination last year)
Kosovo Heart
Lancaster Pink (1 plant only)
Stump of the World
Sun Gold
Wessel's Purple Pride

I should be able to cover you on the Black Cherry. Hope your hand heals up quickly.

This is my list, sorry it's not alphabetized. I am getting ready to pot up, and I see some have no or little germination, not many but a few. Let me know asap if there is anything you would like, otherwise I won't pot it up, it will be culled. I didn't hit my goal of only 100 varieties this year, but at least its less than half the 600 or so varieties I had less year.

JerryL April 19, 2013 11:38 AM

Hey Lurley,
As usual you have a great list. I’m not sure I need anything right now. I’m also sure that I’ll be forced to take a few home with me at the Plant Swap. :dizzy:

beatpoet April 22, 2013 12:31 PM

I've had poor germination results this year, especially with peppers, so if anyone has an extra pepper seedling or two, I'd be happy to take them off your hands at the swap.

I'll only have a couple extra tomatoes due to this as well, but I'll bring what I've got.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 01:55 PM.
