If you have an extra tomato plant (mortage buster or something like that), I would love to have one. Your description in another thread sounded like what Mom and DaD grew when I was growing up. I've never had such a good tomato as they grew ,since I was little.

Double the usual amount of chromosomes.

Ric, I planted some about 5 years ago. They didn't do well at all the first 2 years, and by the 3rd year, they are all over the place. I had planted them by a fence, and since then they have invaded my daylily bed which is close, and spread to another area where we had a little garden last year. I noticed today that there are many little ones coming up in the garden space, and they are getting ready to get the axe. I had many named ones, Gradpa Otts, and others that I can't remember the names. Just a mixed bag now they have decided to wander all over the place. I will pot some up if you want some.

Ric, and Paulette, while I was gone to town yesterday, DH and his big mean tractor and tiller demolished the morning glories. Bah, I am so sorry. Guess he forgot to check with me, as we both were cussing them last year. I have seeds, but no plants.

Morning Glory, Star of Yelta (I have thousands of reseeded babies), probably some others, too.

To give:
Ric--Burning Embers episcia

Esther-Trifetti pepper, Diablo Ninebark, and Burning Embers episcia.

Defoecat--Sedum Lemon Coral

Rebecca-soaps

Fragrant or hummingbird plants I don't have
Tropicals I don't already have
Variegated plants, esp. tricolor with pink

If anyone finds Mikania ternata, I'll do anything for it. I'll make you soap or candles. I'll make your favorite food for the RU.

I have a starter begonias "Boyfriend" and "Springfield Queen", they are from leaf sections and are in 2-1/4" pots and small but healthy. Both of them are vigorous and have lovely winter blooms, not fussy rex PITA kinda begonias. I can also pin down some stolons of Episcia "Pink Dreams" and "Pink Smoke".

Yeah it's almost to the point where we need to call this the ORVG Bog...;-)

Chelle I think the secret to the Variegated Petasites is to get stock from a good, well established, tough strain that's been grown out and divided.
To me most tissue grown or hot house grown variegated perennials are a bit weak lived.

I got my stock from Joan in Hamilton.
Her clumps are fairly well variegated and now line the creek in her backyard.
I accidentally left them out, unprotected, over the winter in 4" pots.
Found them in early spring. Both pots had flowered and were growing well.
Takes a TOUGH plant to overwinter in a 4" pot!
Especially one that should be in a 4' pot! lol!
I'll be switching out the plain ones in the side yard w/ them.
Hopefully I'll have some for trade in the Fall.

I'm looking for the deep red leaved one.
Bakers had some but were a bit pricey to me (and of course hot house propagated)
The tour house on Hitching Post has a nice stand and I'm hoping to trade w/ him.

I figured it was just too late in the year to get it established.Well, this year, I have some strange plant I have never seen before near where the petasites was planted.

Sue, I have tons of experience bottle feeding kittens if you need help. What are you using to feed them--bottle, eyedropper, etc? If you use a dropper, it'll take forever to get enough volume into them, and the stimulation of suckling is lost. With most nursing bottles, the holes in the nipples are way too small; you'll need to enlarge them with something, or the kitties get frustrated at suckling and having little milk come out.

As for water plants, I only have Iris pseudocorus, Iris versicolor, one hardy water lily and possibly cattails. I see one fuzz head out there so I assume it's on a plant. ROTFLOL Yeah, neglect. I've not had the heart or the money to mess with the pond for the past 2-3 years. Those plants are in the bog. The only plant in the actual big pond is the one little lily.

It's not tested, it's an off-label use. There are going to be few products tested on ferrets, the cost to test is really high considering the market. That's why so few shampoos and that sort of thing are tested on cats. Revolution is an rx product, you'll have to discuss its use with your vet.

I'm interested in the dwarf Papyrus if you have it to spare. You know you are welcome to my veggies. I also have Basil Genovese. I'm thinking I bought Cilantro seeds too which are best sown in place depending on what you want to do with them.

Chele, bringing you some Papyrus :) I'll be shopping at your house, too ;) So will get maters, basil and maybe cilantro? I'm not good with seeds. Probably going to end up being a day trip. Just not wanting to spend $100 for a hotel that usually costs $50. Looks like the weather is going to be nice for us tomorrow, yay!

I make lotions, lip balms, face cream, whipped shea, sugar scrub, soy candles and soaps. I use a honey-scented oatmeal soap with carrots for my face. I have red hair and cadaver-white skin, so it's mild enough that it doesn't break it out.

We have various assortment of heirloom tomatoes in 6 packs (and individually) in the car already.

Hey, ORVers,

Buz and I are thinking we might drop by the RU tomorrow (on our way to Columbus) to say hi!

I was just out in the garden looking around for what I could dig and share and here's what I came up with:

Bearded Iris NoID
Siberian Iris No ID but might be 'designer' plants
Liatris spicata (purple grown from corms)
Liriope variegated
Hardy geraniums, a very nice pink bloomer, not the wildish kind.
Chelone (a lavender)
Coral Bells (dark purple leafed NoID but a 'designer' plant I think)
Cuttings from Honeysuckles (red)
Chartreuse creeping jenny (some people hate this for its invasiveness but I love it)

This is a tentative list and if there is interest (send me a d-mail), assuming we can get ourselves organized and on the road in time, I'll put the plants in the car.

Don't really want/need anything in trade, but I am looking for a couple of basil plants, lily of the valley, and (don't shoot me for this) vinca minor.

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Judy

The car is loaded aside from food. I'm missing two kids and I need to jump in the shower.

I'm planning to get out of here about 9:30 and be there by 11am. You know me... We do have to swing through town and pick up my helper and her daughter then we'll be on the way.

Took my Ibuprofen and Mucinex. I promise not to breathe on anyone and I'll keep my lips to myself. LOL

If anyone wants anything, this is the last chance to say so! Otherwise, I'm only bringing what is on the list.

Hey Rebecca, Just had to show you where I placed my glass. It's so pretty sitting next to my weigela and the pink compliments the bloom perfectly. DH said I should place it up high somewhere but I really like it when you find a hidden treasure in a garden and thought it was perfect situated here. Thank you so much for this - I really, really like it!

I can't remember who was I was talking about this to today but here's a picture of my weeping redbud. It's called 'Lavender Twist' and mine is about seven years old. I bought it for the greenhouse I used to manage. When the greenhouse was closed the owner told me I had first pick on what I wanted to take home - guess what that was? It's a beautiful tree and so lovely in the spring when it's blooming. I'll have seeds in the fall if anyone wants me to save some.

I think it was a very successful day. I got home and unloaded all the plants that you generous people gifted me, and then DH and I went out to eat. Home to get a shower, and then type the church bulletin, and now I am about ready to fall in bed. Tomorrow, I will have duty at the cemetery, so another busy day.

Okay, regarding plants, I think I have a helpful hint for future years. I think we all need to add SUN or SHADE to plant tags. I'm about to run out there and try to figure out where everything goes before it fries. LOL

Thanks to everyone that loaded me down with all their trees and shrubs! I can't wait to look them all up and find them permanent homes.

It was really great to see everyone!

I went to the ER last night and got started on antibiotics. My apologies for gagging, coughing and not being extremely outgoing. I felt awful. I still do but hope it clears quickly.

Then as he passed us...he gave that 'universal signal' to Dave...LOL! Think I will be driving on the interstates from now on!! Whew! Glad I am still here!

My planting day will be tomorrow. I had cemetery duty today, so no work planting got done. When I got home from the cemetery, I got in the pool (wasn't as cool as I had imagined) and brushed and vacuumed. I think another round of vacuuming tomorrow will have it in good shape. Just in time for me to plant awhile and get hot and sweaty, and then go work in the pool to cool off. Can't beat that.

I didn't say anything at the RU, but on the way up, I was almost in an accident, and I would have been the meat between the bread slices. Was following a car, going the speed limit, and all of a sudden the car slams on his brakes. I got stopped, but looked in my mirror and a pick up was all over the road trying to get stopped. He finally took the ditch to avoid rear ending me and the other car. Come to find out there was a truck pulling another truck in front of the car that was ahead of me, and evidently the chain broke, and the disabled truck came to a stand still, which caused all the problems. The tea that you all didn't drink at the RU is in the back floor of my car! Do you know what will take out tea stains from a beige carpet?

Wow Bonnie!
Glad you made it thru OK.

Today we passed a car PUSHING a car out of the construction zone on I-75.
Had a cop escort but traffic came, like in your case, to a screeching halt.

Man I hate that Hwy...

Don't know if this will work but:
Stain Removal Step 1.

Blot up as much of the tea stain as possible by using a clean white cloth.

Stain Removal Step 2.

Pour cold water onto the tea stain and blot up the stained area again.

Stain Removal Step 3.

Use a carpet stain remover according to the directions.

Stain Removal Step 4.

If traces of the tea stain remain, sponge a mild bleach like vinegar onto the stained area and allow it to sit for 7-10 minutes.

Stain Removal Step 5.

Sponge the area thoroughly with water and blot to remove any traces of the vinegar.

Thanks Ric, I should have tackled it when I first got home, but was too tired. I did use the shop vac on it and have allowed it to dry. I was thinking of mildew in a closed car. I will somehow work that into my already busy sounding day tomorrow.

I hate I75 through Cincinnati, seems like there is always a construction zone, or an accident that has slowed traffic to a crawl. Glad that you didn't get into an accident. Guess we have angels sitting on our shoulders!

Bonnie, I wonder if you can try Resolve carpet cleaner? It's in an aerosol can. You spray it on, rub it in with a mop or sponge then vacuum it off. It's supposed to be good for high traffic areas.

I forgot to tell you all about our traffic mishap. Craig got a flat on the way home from the RU. He was driving in front, with Lana and Brian in the middle and me bringing up the rear. Next thing I know, he's driving half off the road and his car is bouncing up and down. We got pulled over into a Goldstar parking lot. First we couldn't get the back door open so people had to clime in to unload the plants in his car to find out the tire was under the car but the nut was still inside. Got the donut off, put it on the car and Morganne broke the nut that holds the tire line up. Geesh. After we got home, Brian figured out how to get the back door open. It has a broken latch. At least we know we can rig it now or open it from the inside.

Great RU everybody! Beautiful day. And thanks for all the good cooking and visiting! So nice to see everyone. And of course the plant swap was fun! Buz and I had a wonderful time.

I am sorry to hear about all the travel mishaps and near accidents. I am glad everyone arrived home safely though.

Ric and Robyn, I bet you have my green checked table cloth..? I guess I will swing over to pick it up or if you are out this way maybe you can leave it by the back door??

And I think everyone will agree that you and all the other organizers did a fantastic job once again!

Yes, Ric. I need to thank all who worked to put the RU together. It was great weather, great company, great food and super great plants.What more can a perfect RU offer? I really enjoyed seeing everybody and appreciate all the great plants I have for this summer and future summers. I think maybe , we should explore having a second RU in the fall and having it a little closer to Cincy so maybe it wouldn't be such a long trip for some. Or maybe there is an in-between location that is suitable. I will help out in any way I can from Indiana. I need to get in touch with a lot of the southern Indiana Dgers and see if I can get them involved in our forum and maybe to attend a RU. At one time, there were very few Hoosiers on DG, but I looked the other day , and the numbers are growing. Yah!
