Default NORCATT spring 2007 plant swap!

Anyone up for this? Time? Place?

Note: I have a bunch of seedlings started. I am NOT sure I will have an actual garden this year, but am interested in giving away plants.

I may be interested. I didn't plant a lot of extras, and what I have is at the "first true leaf" stage so I don't want to count my chickens...

About when would other people be up for swapping?

I just started my tomatoes March 1st. Assuming I have extras I could bring those but I REALLY don't need more plants.

I would suggest a park or quieter setting than last year.

I would be interested in Chill's extras...actually, my plants are at first true leaf stage, I am in the same place of not counting chickens, but, would be willing if I dont mess up from here on out, depending on timimg.

I started mine Feb 11th and 13th. Most only have their first 2 true leaves. I have been growing them in a "greenhouse" window in the kitchen. I had planned on moving them to bigger containers in a week. If someone wants to take them sooner than later that would be great (before I go on vacation in two weeks). I really don't have room to keep all of the seedlings that are transplantable (and I hate to dump them).

I don't really need anythng more, but if someone had Kosovo or BTD, I would kindly accept.

I also don't really need more, but I'd be happy to give some away. I've got at least one extra of these:
Galina
Dr. Wyche's Yellow
Cherokee Green
Unknown Grape (from Gimme, that he rates highly)
Aunt Gertie's Gold
Earl's Faux
Eva Purple Ball

With kids and busy work I don' want to travel too far out of East Bay, but could always give some plants another nearby person for carrying.

Good luck with the growing season,
Paul

I'll gladly adopt. I've promised my cousin in Redding some interesting tomatos! Mine are small, at the 2nd true leaf stage as well. Oh, but my garden is far from ready! How did March sneak up on me so quickly? I haven't even made my cages!!

OK then…we need a plan, modify it a couple of times, and make it come together.

Would Kristy, Angelique, & Diana (or at least one of you that can bring plants from, and deliver plants to Sacramento) be interested in visiting the Bay Area? Maybe a park along BART, or elsewhere, that Debra can easily get to?

I’d also be open to the parking lot at Morningsun Herb Farm if that works for everyone….and if they don’t chase us off. A big plus, they have tomato plants & herbs for sale!

Suggest something else that works for you!

Bruce

So, any ideas on when and where you can / would like to do the swap?

I'd love to check out Morningsun. I have (gasp) never been there.

Hi everyone,
I'm really behind this year. I just started my seeds this past weekend. I've got some 55+ varieties planted and who knows which will sprout for me. Angelique, I have BTD and Kosovo extras if they all come out but I don't know if I'm able to drive so far north to get it to you. Anyone coming down to San Jose that I can pass plants to?

Cheers, Annie

Annie,

Maybe I could pick plants up from you at Fremont BART?

All,

Morningsun Herb Farm would be OK with me, but I need to find a way to get from the Fairfield-Suisun train station over to the Farm. I will research this.

Thanks.
