Here are the two threads set up for the Mid-Atlantic Gardeners 2017 Fall Plant Swap being held at Rick & Larry's place in Derwood, MD.

The first thread is to let us know who is attending and what food or beverage item they are bringing for the pot luck lunch.
2017 Fall Plant Swap

The second thread is for general chat about the swap. This thread also contains information on how the swap will be conducted.
2017 Fall Plant Swap CHAT

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them to the chat thread.

If you've never been to an in-person swap, don't be shy! After all, where else can you go and hang out with a bunch of people talking about plants with enthusiasm?

I'm a "maybe," depending on whether my folks are able to go to Canada fishing this fall... if they do, I'm going too!

Apologies about that, because I mentioned to a couple people that they could stay over at our place Friday and/or Saturday nights.

But there are a lots of hotels in the area, including Sleep Inn and Red Roof Plus (currently 65-85 per night depending on specials).

Hopping the metro down to the Smithsonian the next day would be one option... many choices nearby!
I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris & Sharon.

Ric - so sweet but he's typically working weekends now. So hard to believe he'll be a senior next year.
