    Donna, what is your husband's name? There was another lady sitting around the table whose husband sat across from her..what is his name? Hoping someone will post everyone's name in order sitting around the table, going clockwise starting with Ryan! Who was so kind to send me the shallot bulbs in the mail?... I couldn't read the return address? ...Quinliv _ _ _ ? from Strafford, NH?

    Thanks to Ryan for hosting...the potluck was great! Thanks to
    those who shared/swapped with me! Would someone be willing to post the names of everyone at the table in order going clockwise and starting with Ryan so I can recall who was who?
    Special thanks to Dave and Marsha!

    Hey everyone, thanks so much for your generosity, helping out a wannabe gardener :) Fantastic food too! Hope to see you all again, maybe next time I'll have bunches of my own plants to give :)

    Wonderful gathering at Ryan's last eve. Lots of assorted plants and a great potluck with incredible dishes. Much great knowledge and information shared as well. The spirit of sharing is such a powerful good. As a follow on I am happy to swap anise hyssop and cone flower for a start. Also an early pale yellow iris I would like some southernwood and wormwood . Also if anyone has some white Siberian or Japanese Iris I would be interested. Great gathering with meeting other gardeners topping the list.
    Thanks for hosting Ryan

    Great Gathering! Lots of amazing plants - annuals, perennials, permaculture favorites, then a delicious potluck!

    Great variety of plants. I owe Marsha and somebody else some southernwood. I was very happy to get some dwarf comfrey which I didn't even know existed.

    I am bringing tomato and other seedlings, comfrey and Jeruselm Artichokes. I am also bringing a gallon jug of Fish Emulsion with Kelp, that I bought this spring from NOFA.... a great fertilizer and an amazing bear attractor! So if you don't have a bear problem, bring a bottle or jug or several zip lock bags....you don't want this to spill in your car!

    I would like some lily-of-the-valley, scented daylilies, just abt. anything eatable plus basil, stevia, rosemary, lovage, scented geraniums & any other herbs anyone has to share. Does anyone have any native mulberry tree seedlings per chance? I will be bringing perennials.....will email later tonight which other ones as I have yet to get out to the garden and dig more.......I have so far to share: chives, garlic chives, daffodils...

    I volunteered to take all the recipes and get them out to people. If you'll send me a word doc or similar that would be great. I'm still deciding what to bring since I want to try a new recipe with current surplus. I don't mind typing up the recipe if needed. If it's someone else's recipe, we need to credit the source. I think I can post the recipe file here. If not, I can send to everyone.

    Here's the link to the Fedco Tree Sale, in case you don't find all that you need at the Plant Swap.

    Now I'm sad that I can't attend. As a beginning gardener, I'm probably decades behind the rest of you. Southernwood, lilies, peonies, herbs... i need it all. if anyone finds themselves in concord in the next few months with a trunk full of divisions and cuttings, stop by my home!

      Marsha, I'll have a small southernwood for you. It's the one with the antiseptic smell, gets about 3' tall. Ray, I'm leaving 5/8 for a conference but I'll keep you in mind and should have something besides southernwood for you. There's a NH plant swap on June 9 in Goffstown that is organized on gardenweb.com - go to the New England thread. It's usually all perennials. If you don't have anything to swap, anything left at the end is put in the middle of the yard as a free for all. Pot luck coffee break and lunch. Sometimes someone just gives everything away.

    That sounds wonderful...I will come if I'm out of work in time.

    April 22, 2013

  • Marsha C.

    I would be interested in some Southernwood.
    Don't have a "top 5 list", but will likley find plants I am interested in, as I am turning my entire back yard into gardens.
    At a minimum, I have Iris, Day Lilies, Japanese Iris, Lily of the Valley and Thyme to share.

    I've hit a stumbling block. My seedlings are not doing well and I'm not sure what kind of plants people are looking for. I've been attending an annual plant swap that is mostly perennials and people don't seem to want things like herbs. Perhaps if people like Ray could list 5 plants that are on their wish list, it would help. I pulled up a branch of southernwood that had rooted and tucked it in someplace else but I'm not sure anyone wants southernwood.

    I actually most likely have to work that night, but I'm desperate for plants for my new permaculture garden. Hope I can find a way to meet you folks and score some!

    I think this should be family friendly. I attend a plant swap in June where people have brought their children who are interested in gardening. One mom gave her girls plants to use as swaps and let them make the swaps.

    March 25, 2013

    • Ryan H.

      I agree. I think this should be a fun time for anyone that is interested in gardening! The more plants and people the merrier! :)

    May I suggest potluck dinner at 6, followed by plant swap, then potluck dessert so those who can't arrive until 7pm can still share in food? If people will send me duplicate of food info, I can compile and print for everyone or send later as a PDF. It would be great to share recipe sources.

    Can't believe we're talking plant swap as the snow comes down tonight. Can't wait!
