Sure will Chelle.
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.


Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Sure thing Lou. Mortgage Lifter. :) How many? I'll snag them now and put them in large containers. Just one?? There is a list on my website if you want to see if you want anything else. Thank you!

Seymour, IN(Zone 5b)

two if you have them. It's just Dave and I , so that should be plenty for us. I will look at your web site and see if I can put dibs on anything else. LOL Lou

I have 3-4 flats. We're good! Like I said, I'll put them in something deep so you can have nice big plants for the ground. :)

Seymour, IN(Zone 5b)

Thanks!!!!! I hope you bring your leftovers from the greenhouse to the RU and let us buy what we want. Theres lots of good things there and they would be gone. Lou

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Somehow I would feel guilty about that. I can bring you what you want though. :)

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Lou, is this what you have: I'd be interested in those too. Sooo pretty!

Seymour, IN(Zone 5b)

Yes, that is it. I will pot some up for you when and if it ever stops raining.
We have had 6 inches since friday am and are expecting 3 more by noon Wednesday! Ugh!!!! These are single stem flowers and but rebloom all sumer if dead headed. They are nice for additions to cut bouquets. Lou

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Thanks Lou! I think we've all had it with the rain. I had 3" in the baby pool yesterday morning. Not sure what we got after that.

(Di) Seven Mile, OH(Zone 6b)

Lou, I would love some of your rose campion and the Autumn Glory sedum. I'll have my list up next week - still waiting to see how some things make it back.

Seymour, IN(Zone 5b)

Di, I will put you down for those two items. Lou

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Marcy, do you still have ferns to part with? I know you said you would bring me some in years past but I didn't go.

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Is anyone else wanting to try any of my tomatoes? I have two retail customers coming to pick them up next week and need to make sure I pull out anything that is wanted.

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a) you down for ferns! They come up everywhere!

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Marcy what Ferns do you have to trade?


New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

Those Ostrich ferns Ric. You want some ?

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Nope sorry we're getting rid of some too! lol!

HMMMMM Maybe we should tell everyone how tender, delicate and hard to grow.

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Is anyone interested in Mayapples? If so, I'd need to pot them soon.

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

LOL Ric! Ya think so?????
Ok...everyone...these Ostrich ferns are just sooo very hard to keep alive!! But they are well worth it...cause they are soooo pretty!!! All they really need is water water water...and heaven knows most of us have had plenty of that this spring!!!
So get your FREE Ostrich ferns from me or Ric!!!
How did I do Ric?

Franklin, OH(Zone 6a)

Bertie is looking for Ostrich Ferns. She has a new garden area and wants to use them as fillers. So she'll take any you want to get rid of!!

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)


Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

Did somebody here express a wish for morning glories? Somebody did, and of course I can't remember who it was. I have a gazillion of them coming up, and would be glad to pot some up, and bring them to the RU. Here they have become a thug, and if nobody wants some, I am killing the little buggers!

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Which ones do you have Bonnie? of is it a mixed bag?

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

I have 4 only (at this point) Jack's Giant Colocasia.
These are C. esculenta (your plain old cannonball EE's from the Big Box stores) BUT they are Tetraploid.
Double the usual amount of chromosomes.
What's this mean?
Well BocaJoe, who I trust on all things Tropical, says probably more Zone Hardy and......

BTW we grow regular C. esculenta in the ground here and have had it return for 5 years now.

Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

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.

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Thanks Bonnie we'd love to give some more a shot.

Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

I will put you down for some.

Flemingsburg, KY(Zone 6a)

Bonnie I would like to have some morning glories
Marcy or Ric I sure would like to have some more ferns.
I can't get enough of them. I have a wooded back yard and they are not invassive enough for me.
I don't even know what all I have yet. I'll try to get it figured out soon.
Michelle I would like some tomatoes ( I will buy them from you)

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

I'm sure Marcy and I can fern you up! LOL!

Pleasureville, KY(Zone 6a)

Paulette, I have you down for some morning glories. I do have more obedient plant, if anybody is interested. They are small so I can pot them up.

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

You don't need to buy them Pauletta. Do let me know which you want and I'll put them in something larger. Believe it or not, it's getting hard to keep them moist already.

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

Michele...think i saw where u have castor beans seedlings? I wouldn't mind one or two of those if u can spare them? If not..that's fine too. Seems there was something else you posted along with the castor beans...darn..can't remember what it was?...ohhhhhhhhhhh I think it was moonflowers? If you have any of those?

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

I just started another tray Marcy. LOL A couple of facebook friends wanted them and I had only started 12 or 15. I just started like 30 more. Thanks Bonnie!

I think there may still be more in the pack. I may start those too. I like them by the pond. :P

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

We're thinning out the yard.
Anyone need Variegated Vince (Periwinkle) or Big Dipper Elephant Ears?
