This past weekend, the Revel Gardener hosted a seed / plant swap at her house. It was the first seed / plant swap that I ever attended and it was so much fun! It was a small crowd, with just 4 of us attending, but what we lacked in numbers, we definitely made up in enthusiasm! We were all eager to talk about gardening, gardening, and more gardening. Revel Gardener had such a great setting for our seed swap, we milled about in her beautiful backyard. She has a gorgeous peach and cherry tree and vegetable garden in her Brooklyn backyard. I can't believe I didn't take one photo of the yard or the trees! Believe me, it was stunning! In addition to bringing seeds and plants, we also were asked to bring something for the pot luck, something we made from the garden. I brought some homemade brushchetta using all homegrown ingredients including heirloom tomatoes, garlic and Italian Genovese basil. Genovese Basil is my new favorite basil to grow. Wow, the smell is intoxicating, so very fragrant!
Red Garden Clogs brought this box of planting goodies. In the box, she had lots of different perennial flower seeds, a couple sage plants, metal plant markers, and lots of gardening books that she no longer needed.
