Anyone going to fall plant swaps? I haven't been to one for a couple of years. I usually attend the Mercer one in Houston or the Galveston county one. There is one scheduled for the 29th in Hempstead and another up near Fort Worth.

San Antonio has one in the spring and fall. Also a large gardening event that falls in May, which includes a plant swap. I've got to cut down!

There is one at Mercer in north Houston on Oct. 6. I don't think I can make it even thought I have been growing starts for it. Someone will bring my plants to the swap though.

Betsy,
Caryana and I are going to the one in Hempstead on the 29th. It on a farm and they have goats, cattle, lambs, etc. I'm taking lots of plants and hoping not to take any home! Sounds like lots of fun, not to mention it's by the Antique Rose Emporium, Blue Bell Ice cream, and a daylily farm.
