Thanks to all the gardeners who turned out at today's Greengirls plant swap with a terrific array of offerings. Giant blue hosta? Check. Brandywine tomatoes and other heirloom veggies? Check.  Lots of good horsetrading and freebies, and several hundred plants found new homes without a dime being spent.

Whether you were a veteran in search of an unusual find or a newbie in search of free plants to get started, you didn't go home empty-handed.

I did try to go home empty-handed, since my goal was to share the largesse rather than bring it back, but two heucheras followed me home and are now in the ground and watered in.

Happy planting!
