I’ve just finish with my biggest garden related project of the year yesterday, the Northwest Gardening Association’s Annual Plant Swap! The Swap is a great way for us plant lovers to get new plants without having to pay for them. Each person brings plants (or garden related items) that they would like to swap. They get a ticket and for each item and use those tickets to check out after swapping. You bring 10 you get 10. We also receive donations from local nurseries to pump up the stock of plants. There is normally refreshments, door prizes and raffles too!
The Swap will be ten years old next year! I started it under another organization I belonged to and have moved it to NWGA which I founded. NWGA is three years old, and I am the president of the organization. I hope to do something big for the tenth anniversary of the Swap! I just don’t know what right now. In planting for next year and the upcoming workshops, I hope to start a gardening blog for the organization next week to go along with the tenth year. It will be a place where I will post gardening pictures, info and upcoming events! I will post here and give you a link to the new blog when it is up.
I was there setting up for the Swap that started at 10:00am at 7:00am and I left at 3:00 after clean up after the Swap which ended at 1:00. It was a very long day! I should have went straight home…But no! I was right across from Kohl’s and thought I‘d check to see if maybe he was there! Wow he was there and he is the last one!
They wanted way to much for him!: ( Then I saw the sign that said 20% off. Well, that is a little better. So I got him!
My reward for working so hard!
Thanks For Looking!
