I could, but my house is a mess. I think it would have to be at a park or something.

People don't have to go in your house. All the ones I have attended were held in the person's yard. If you don't want people in your house, you can rent a port-a-potty or hold it in a local park. They are tons of fun!

Hi Erin,
We have been considering one at my place and I think near end of March. Actually everybody has had so much sickness we missed a fall one and I agree we are definitely due one.
Will keep you informed when we get a date set.

I've only hosted 1 and that was Oct. 22. 2011 and there were around 40. We had so many plants to swap it was amazing. Food was delicious also. Everyone brings a dish to pass so we had plenty and I cooked an electric roasting pan of spaghetti and meatballs. Had lots left over which some could take home as they had a long ride and I thought they wouldn't have to fix dinner after getting home.

We moved cows into upper pasture so we could park cars safely off the road in lower pasture. The weather was perfect so nobody was sweating. I had a nurseryman come and do a pruning demo on crepe myrtle and then we gave it away as one of the door prizes.

I think everybody enjoyed it I know I sure did but was exhausted when it was over. I got all the leftover plants and I'll bet there was about 50 I set out later. One was jewels of opar and it is huge now. Wonderful way to make new gardening friends and be able to put a face to a forum name.

David RU's are held all over the US so we aren't the only plant nuts. It's fun and a learning experience also.

Sounds wonderful.

Please keep in mind that the last weekend of March is Easter.

I apologize for mentioning it but I'm probably not the only one that will be busy that weekend...

How about the first part of April. I am hoping I can start some seeds this week end and that would give them enough time I hope to be big enough by then.

That is still up in the air, the leg is doing good but I have a place on my hand where some skin was tore off the back of my hand yesterday that does not look good.

I agree Erin.

Being that I started a ball rolling 3 years ago with the "Urban Backyard Garden Nursery" thing 3 years ago, and already have developed a good local clientele. Its a good thing!
