Angelique, March 31st works for me!

Debra,

Glad you're willing to make the trek to Morningsun.

I checked the 511 site and it looks like a 2 to 3 hour bus ride with several transfers, although it's not all that far. At the end you'll end up with about a half mile walk . If you want to catch a cab to Morningsun I can give you a ride back to the train station since all my tomato plants will be gone (hint, hint, everyone )

What time do you plan to arrive? We can set the meeting time close to the train arrival time if that's OK with everyone.

All,

If I get the #724 Capitol Amtrak train out of Richmond (leaves 9:17 a.m.), I'll be at the Suisun-Fairfield station (closest to Vacaville) by 10:03 a.m., so maybe about 10:30-10:45 would be good?

I should be able to make it! I'm so excited to see what Morningsun is like! Oh sure, I'm going to have to have to do some guerilla planting at my house...peppers? Nope. Flowers? Ha!

I should be able to make that, and hopefully the plants can too.

GTG,

I think that could work for us--to meet at Fremont Bart. Right now, most of my seeds have sprouted but they are nowhere near transplanting. I have tons so anyone needing more, I can definitely pass them over the GTG. How are you planning to carry it all though? Email me anniesyneoh at yahoo dot com

I have to look through your list again to see if there's any I want. Maybe we can do our quick swap there.

Bruce, I seeded some Joe's Portuguese but so far, no sign of any sprouting. Hopefully, it'll come up otherwise I want to hear reports on the taste from you later.

Here's my list:
Beauty King
Indian Strip
Green Giant
Lescana Heart
Neves Azorean Red
Grandfather Ashlock
Grub's Mystery Green
Soldacki
Pork Chop
Goose Creek
Hugh's
Carbon
Dinner Plate
QFL
New Big Dwarf
Dagma's Perfection (right now only 1 sprouted)
Big Rainbow
Opalka
Speckled Roman
Super Italian Paste Tomato
Amish Gold
Jersey Devil
Dr. Carolyn
Jaune Flamme
Cherokee Green
Polish C
Redfield Beauty
Japanese Trifele Black
Brandy Boy
Garden Peach
Chianti Rose
Don Juan
Brad's Black Heart
Heart of Compassion
Kosovo
OR 117
Anna Russian
Dagestanskiy
Ukrainian Heart
Nicky Crain
Mikado Violettor
Cuostralee
Kroska Pink Bulgarian
Humph
Burracker's Fav
Lucky Cross
Aunt Gertie's Gold
Kimberley
Berkeley Tie Dye

Cheers, Annie

Rats! We're out of town the weekend of March 31. That's what I get for not checking NORCATT for a couple of weeks... darn.

Bruce, GTG -- I'd happily take plants off your hands if you think you might still have any the following weekend. Any chance I could connect up with you then? I was thinking that if Brad is already doing the Oakland Farmer's Market, maybe we could meet up with him and then go to lunch together? If you have other thoughts, let me know.

Annie, if we did something the following weekend in Oakland area (April 7 or 8) would you want to join us?

Hi Betsy,

That sounds like a great idea, but I'll be away the weekend of the 7th, the following weekend or the one after that would be better.

Thanks for offering to take some of my plants! Please let me know what you want from my list.

Hi GTG, I didn't get any emails from you about meeting at the Fremont bart. Do you still want to do that? Most of my plants (save Joe's Portuguese and Russian 117 (rats!)) have come up and most have the start of their first true leaves. Anything from my list anyone wants?

Betsy, I don't know what my schedule is going to look like first week of April. I won't be around from April 11-23--traveling so can't meet during that period either. Maybe later?

Bruce, if I can't get Joe's Portuguese to come up, I'll get in touch with you later about meeting.
Angelique, wish there was some way I could pass the plants to you. Kosovo and BTD are doing really well for me. I'll have to see if I can get up north sometimes and maybe meet up with you.

Have a great swap next week you guys.

Cheers, Annie

Annie,

Since we're all meeting on Saturday the 31st at Morningsun, I thought it would be good if we could meet at Fremont BART the previous evening (the 30th) and swap plants then. Would that work well for you?

I get off of work at 5:00 and should be back home by 5:45, then I'll pick up the plants and get on BART again.

Does this sound OK? What time would be best for you?

Are there any plants from my list that interest you? Please let me know and I'll bring them.

Thanks.

Hi GTG,

I'd love to try some of your hybrids--Honey and Sugar Snack. I don't have room for anymore than that unfortunately. What time do you think you'll be at the Fremont Bart on Friday? I think it's doable. I'll bring Angelique's Kosovo and BTD. Anyone else wants anything? Everything I have is still quite small and so I am not planning to transplant yet until after I get back from my trip (makes it easier for my friend who is helping me take care of it). But if there's anything you guys want, just holler and I'll repot into a small cup to pass along.

Bruce, any chance you can meet us there on Friday evening?

Cheers, Annie

Annie,

How about around 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 30th, at Fremont BART? Does that work for you?

I'll have Honey Hybrid and Sugar Snack Hybrid set aside for you (the plants are healthy but a bit on the leggy side). I also have Momotaro Hybrid if you want that too.

Thanks.
