That's great Barb. I am excited to see you again. We wont have that kind of pepper without you, so that sounds good. I am going to have several Enjoya striped pepper plants, and the usual 104 or so varieties of tomatoes. Plus lettuces, basils, other more common peppers. Many bring their ornamentals too.

For those attending, a dish can be as simple as pre packaged cookies, lol. We aren't picky!

I'm in! Looking forward to meeting everyone! Should I bring full-sized plants or those ready to be potted up that I've started for fall?

Ginger - I may bring a fellow gardening friend or two, will e-mail you when I confirm with them.

May also bring food if I'm feeling ambitious that day. : )

Hi Audrey, glad to hear you are coming we usually bring 5-7week old seedlings, ready for transplant your gardening friend and and others are welcome too. And if you get ambitious to bring a dish, all the better.

Too bad that Florida is so far away from here (and our customs don't like living plants from outside the EU) - I'd wish I could participate! Good luck, Marsha, have much fun!

Default Plants for the swap

Tomatoes and peppers looking rather good, I think. Some of the peppers have blooms.
