Savannah, Georgia
Date:
April 5th, Saturday 8am - 11-ish. Rain or shine!

Location:
Jane Fishman's urban garden, Boundary Street, Savannah next to Chatham Steel.

There is a Facebook page: 'Savannah Plant Swap'.

This is a free swap open to all. If you can't bring plants, bring food/snacks to share. Bring plants potted, bagged or loose if recently ripped from the ground. There is a seed table to share you extra seeds. I bring a basket or box to carry plants, a notebook to jot down plant info. My little dog enjoys this swap.

I filled my car with new plants; here they are all after I got them all potted. Whew!

Who needs a reason? Come, visit anyway. I'll buy you dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant - as long as we can bring home a doggy bag for my little dog.

There is another swap (usually the first Saturday in October). Another good time to visit this fair city. I'll post that one when the date if published.

Well, I don't need a reason but it seems if it involves plants, I MAKE the time, otherwise, I'm struggling to find time to do anything fun like that. But hey, I will make a great effort to make it down there and visit you! I'll keep an eye out for the October one. Thanks!

Even with this fierce winter I have met my personal goal; 175 plants are ready to go to the swap.

Jack inspected them all; told me to replace 3 that looked a bit puny.
He is such a perfectionist.
He sampled the Lemongrass and said it was delicious.
