If we all come, can we eat supper at your house after?
Sure. Pot luck. RSVP so I'll know if I need to borrow some chairs. I'll supply muskmelon wine as an appetizer, and muskmelon vinegar for a salad... I suppose the Interlaken wine will be ready by then. As far as I am concerned as a hill-billy farmer, the freshest wine is the best wine. We can have Interlaken raisins to go along with it. I'll make sure there is plenty of propane for the grill. Bring your favorite meat if desired. I'm pretty much a wine only guy, so if you want beer then bring your own.

i don't have to do this kind of thing because people like you have done this work for me.
i attended my first seed swap this past February and i had a great time. i brought as much of my collection as i could and tried to give away as much as i could. i think i ended up giving away about 1/3 of what i brought. i would have loved to have come home with none at all. i primarily took beans, but i also had garlic, peas, squash, some various flower seeds and some other odds and ends. it was only me at my spot so i wasn't able to really roam around as much as i'd hoped for.
this year i will be going again and hoping to give away a lot more. i'm also hoping to bring another person so they can be at the table at times when i want to go check out other people's displays.
also the local library has started up a small seed library and i've donated 4 beans to that with plans of doing more. i'm so excited that someone has already adopted one of them so i will keep restocking it.
