Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Going to load my truck up tonight so I'll be ready to go tomorrrow morning.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I have plants, chairs, etc sitting in the garage waiting to be loaded. I will make weenies later today...so they can marinate.

Last chance to pick something from my list...I can pot it tonight...

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

I'm going to get everything ready tonight. Wanted to last night but I was not in the mood lol!

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Kim I would like to have one of your extra Red Dragons.

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

I'm just waiting on my brother to get home from work with his car. I'll load it tonight if it's not too hot. If it is, I'll just set the plants beside the car until morning. Right now, all your plants are in my guest room. I hope I can fit them in the car! No way am I leaving the dips and pies behind, but someone's plants may have to sacrifice! LOL

Still don't know if my friend is coming with me. Can't get in touch with her. She's a lot like me and I don't know if y'all can handle two of me. :-)

KathyAnn, where's that nursery you said I can't stop at? If I was going to be flying thru in my van, it would instinctively pull in, but I don't have Terry's car trained so well. It has an aversion to dirt, silly ole car!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I've also got alot of extraspotted up

lions tail

diff colored 4 :00 plants
clerodendrum bungii
rose of sharron not sure on the color but there's tons ofseedlings out there. I pull them up every day.
different sedums rooted
one mock orange bush
one falopia japonica
several other things I forget. will have lots of extras.
this is all potted up in several different pots so I have extras to go on the free table

and I also just made lemon icebox pie and chocolate silk pie, YUM!!

i was in the pie making mode.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Gotcha your name on one, Charlotte.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

when you get off the first bald knob exit it 's right on the side, you'll see it from the exit. can't miss it.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I forgot to remove debra's trade list, so disregard it. sorry

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

Oh, I want some Lion's tail, Kathy if you have extra. I've never grown it. Will it reseed?

Thanks. We'll see if the car will let me turn in there. If she carries unusual stuff, I'd like to see if there's anything I can't live without.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Yummmmmmmmy! Lemon Ice Box pie is my favorite summer pie!

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

I'm after that choc silk pie. Trade ya some banana split pie for it. LOL

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

yes, it reseeds, but it took a couple years for it to reseed for me, and it's all coming back really late this year, their about anywhere from 2 to 5 inches tall out there. I pulled alot of them up cause they all have to be staked, and I was tired of messing with it.

I'll put your name on one.

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I also have extra

4 flats of impatiens
1 regular nadina
a couple of rose of sharons (I think mine are white with a purple center - no guarantee)
toad lily
canna (red)
3 or 4 red bud seedlings
anemone (white)
some other stuff that I can't remember

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I'll take some of those impatiens.

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I think I will make a list of those that want impatiens and after you all get your's then it's open for everyone else. Make sense?

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I want impatiens, Charlotte.

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

OK Kim

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

yep makes sense to me.

Kim I'm so glad I have those balsams growing in the back flower garden, some of the stalks on those plants are l/2 to 3/4 inch around. they are beautiful looking, not blooming yet tough.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Nancy did you say your bringing the stuff to make lemonaid? pink or yellow? I have some strawberries set aside that I was goin g to put in to my lemonaid ifyour bringing the stuff to make yellow lemonaid we'll just put them in your lemonaid.

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

LOL KA YUM!!!! Y'all are making me hungry!

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

Actually I'm brining pink and yellow lemonades and a raspberry drink. I love the sugar free drinks. Can't tell they're not sugary. No calories either I think.

My banana split will be good for diabetics too. The only sugar will be in the oreo cookie crust which you don't have to eat if you don't want to. The pudding and whipped cream are sugar free, and then there's the natural sugars in all the fruit. So it's fairly healthy for those who have to be careful. It's really great after any spicy foods, like mexican or chinese. Should I bring the recipe?

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

you should post the recipe here!

I'm not sure I want to post the lemon ice box pie recipe, it's not very lemony and it's more like custard not sure what happened. ya'll eat of your own free will LOL I made two after they cool i'm going to cut one and see how it is.

mine ha ve sugar in them of course LOL

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)


A great, healthy dessert. Especially wonderful after a spicy meal. Not too filling, but very satisfying. No bake, no mess, no fuss. Can be prepared in 20 minutes. Can be adapted for special diets.

2 cups graham cracker crumbs (I prefer the cinnamon or chocolate ones)
1 stick butter or margarine
3 tblsp sugar

Melt butter. Then mix with crumbs and sugar and pat into a 9 x 13 inch pan or dish.

Just buy the premade Oreo Cookie Crust (like I do)


2 pkgs instant vanilla pudding (or your favorite flavor, sugar free if you prefer)
Milk as required to mix pudding, LESS one cup.
5 bananas – sliced
20 oz can of crushed pineapples – drained
Lots of strawberries - sliced
1 large container of Cool Whip
1 cup chopped pecans
Chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles
Anything else you like on your banana split

Prepare pudding as directed on box, LESS one cup of milk. Pour over cool crust and let pudding set. Then layer the remaining ingredients in order over pudding.

Refrigerate for a few hours before serving, if you can wait that long.

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Boy does that sound good!!!!

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Yum, that sounds good! I have already printed out the recipe!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Your arrangements are very pretty , Kathy Ann. I just love freshly cut flowers and that is part of the reward of growing your own flowers! :o)) What do you have to put in the soil to get those beautiful purple hydrangeas?

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Hope you didn't dump your week bouquet! It's really pretty!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

no I kept it, I don't do anything to the soil but triple l3 in february. the purple one in front is that forever and ever endless summer hydrangea the oneon the left is that peppermint I got from bonnie, the one in the back is lady in red and the other two blue and purple ones came off the same hydrangea, they turn purple as they age. but open blue.

I've just got finished sweeping out the shop and setting up the fans and I set up one table t o put my plants on LOL danny's not home yet with my saw horses, I have the free plant table ready . it's getting close ladies!!

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I just turned the oven on and waiting for it to heat up. Making lemon squares and some beer bread to go with the pimento cheese.

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

KA you haven't dumped that weed bouquet yet have you? I love it! I love the other two bouquets also! You're better at that than I am!

(karen) Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Charlotte I'd like to have some impatiens if you have some left over.

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

I know ya'll are going to be having lots of fun tomorrow!! Hope everyone has a safe journey there and back! I am ready for someone to plan a fall get together so I can quit pouting ! ^_^


Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Karen will put you on the list for impatiens. There is no shortage of impatiens. It's just a matter of how many I can get potted up. I have thousands of impatiens!! I am cramming a handful of plants into each pot. I'm sure you can divide them out so they will grow better.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

Um, I don't think we'll need your tables nancy ann, LOL Danny just set up all these tables for us, the great big one in the center, that still has one piece of plywood missing, is our free plant table.

Is he awesome or what!! still need yours charlotte, for the living room so we can eat at a table

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)
