Re: Plant Sale

Chris, Donna, Pam,
It's not that I'm greedy - I do give plants away, but I don't know enough
people to give all of these to.  As I said, many are quite ordinary and the
gardeners I do know probably already have them.

What doesn't sell I can take to the Extension Office for our MG plant sale
on May 17.  But there's no way I want to lug all of this over there! It
took enough out of me just lugging it from the back yard to the front!

I usually make about $600 on plants and $100 on other odds and ends.  This
at least helps support my gardening habit.  And it's a great way to meet
other people who enjoy the plants.  Many of the same people return each
year and tell me how their plants are doing.  

My neighborhood association always has its annual sale the last Saturday in
April, as do many of the surrounding neighborhoods.  The timing just works
out perfectly to sell plants.   We advertise and have signs up at the
entrances, so the traffic is pretty good.

BTW - when I typed my list, it was a LIST, not one long run-on paragraph as
it came back to me.  I even used italics, but didn't receive that way. 
Sorry if it was difficult to read.  I don't know if hort.net changes it or
if Earthlink changes it.
