    Squidge said to be sure to tell you I am a very seriously abridged version with lots of random annotation in the margins.
    Like most people- just enough info to be dangerous. :crazy

    Lee, did you want marigold seeds? I have them coming out of my ears. My younger ds is a marigold maniac...they're his favorite flower and he had them everywhere last year and saved seeds like crazy. I think we can spare a few, even though I am sure he has plans to take over the entire 40 acres with marigolds. (Though as to what kind they are, it's anybody's guess. Probably they cross pollinated anyway.)

    I have boysenberry starts/shoots (whatever theyre called!) they are the most delicious berry, a cross between blackberries and raspberries I believe? wonderful flavour, though we like a little powdered sugar sprinkled on ours as they are a little tart. These are thornless and I planted one plant last year and have enough to plant a whole new row and give some away this year!
    PM me if you want some, thanks, Karen

    I have a few seeds from Acanthus Mollis, a gorgeous plant, google tells me can be used for a poltice but maybe toxic to goats. Mine does not like direct sun at all but some sources say it likes part sun. Hard to eradicate in the Northwest. Very showy. Can put in an envelope if someone wants them.

    Red Bud Trees

    Hi, All!!

    We're just getting settled in our new place, and have TONS of red bud trees. I have clipped one branch, and placed it in water to see if it will start to root. If it does, I'll be able to do so with as many as I'd like, and it shouldn't cost much to ship them once they have rooted...right?

    Anyway, I guess I'm just checking to see if anyone would be interested in having some red bud trees...?...?...?

    I have local blackberry and apple mint (invasive), and spearmint which all do pretty well and would be easy to send small plants but would need to watch for cooler weather this time of year because shipping in 80+ degrees would possibly cause them to cook in the UPS or USPS truck.

    For anyone not familiar with apple mint is is very soothing tea for stomach ailments and throw a sprig in my iced tea to make it a minty fresh mint julip type tea adds a nice flavor and scent. Since it is such a hearty aggressive plant I enjoy letting it get into an area I plan to reclaim and then dig it all up as a way of harvesting. Silliest thing I ever did was putting one by the garden hose valve where there is always a bit of water runoff and they got dug in there so deep they will be there forever - good part is the excess water that runs off there will never make it muddy because the mint drinks it all. They Like water.

    Add to that currently have rooted fig cuttings, purslane and goldenrod getting pretty vigorous around the yard this year. Could also provide prickly pear cactus (edible fruits but always wear gloves if handling this cactus - it has a million micro thorns you cant see) to make food have to peal the skin off the many purple fruits supposed to be super good for you.

    um stuff I would like to find include jobes tears (seeds) or tea plants

    Addie,
    if you want some, I have more lemon balm than anyone could possibly use and could send you some. Be aware that it self-sows like crazy in addition to spreading (it's in the mint family, you know?).
