Default Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center Seed Swap/Sale

I just realized I should of posted awhile ago. This weekend is the swap in Berea, KY at Bill Best's property where her grows all the heirloom beans and runs the center. It is held the fist weekend of Oct. every year. All kinds of seeds are exchanged or sold.

I'll be there are well as TV members VGary and KYGreg. I hope Fusion_power show up this year. Southern Exposure Seed Exchange comes every year as well as Maria of Blue Ribbon Tomatoes.
It is definitely worth the stop if you are in driving distance. If you come, make sure to say hi!
If you can't make it this year, make plans to be there in the future.

Although I cannot make it I liked reading about tomatoes on that link. Very interesting how he got started with heirlooms. Thanks for posting.

The 2014 seed swap is coming up next weekend, Saturday October 4th, starting 9 AM. Me, Ira, and Irena from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange will all be there, Rodger Winn's gonna be there, plus lots of other Tomatoville folks I'm guessing... Ira made a Facebook post about it on the SESE page -- https://www.facebook.com/pages/South...4746253?ref=ts

If the weather holds up, we're hoping to bring some tomatoes with us! We've had a few nights dip into the high 40s here, but none lately, so hoping the tomatoes we bring will still have OK flavor.

Irena will probably bring some other fun stuff to show off (Papalo, Mexican Mint Marigold, Sesame, Jewels of Opar, etc.)

And, for anyone who'd like a peek at it, I'll bring along our advance copy of Craig's book!

Ira was out harvesting before dark, we'll have small amounts of 20+ tomato varieties for the tasting, plus some peppers and other interesting stuff to show off.

Ken, Sorry we didn't get to chat more. I want to think you so much for bringing Craig's book. I really enjoyed looking through it.
This link is to the pics my SIL took.
