Hi Rene I was just checking my mail and I always got to check my Garden Shares on here no matter what. I don't get on here as much as I would like for I'm doing my ancestry and I was just looking up the Ott side of the family from up there where you live some where.They moved from there to Fayette Co. back in the 1800's sometime. Any way I got off the subject I'm sure you will find someone on here to swap plants with. I would love to do that but I now live in Oklahoma and it would be hard to do so. I still like to check out the residents of PA. Have a good weekend.

Hello!  I'm in Huntingdon Valley, just over the Bucks border in Montgomery Co.  This was a beautiful weekend for some last minute winter preparation, but I must confess.  I was inside cooking.  It sure would be nice to get a group of gardeners together come spring to share info and swap plants.  I know I have more than I need. Anyone interested?

Hello Donna,  I started this group but I am not on much anymore.  I do try to answer when I get an email notice.  Anyone can start up a conversation and you will most alway get an answer from someone.

Not sure if you know everyone in Creekside but I am a decendent of the Bothell family.  My grandmother and mother also lived in Ernest and then moved to Indiana.  I spent many summers on the farm in creekside and still return every summer for our family reunions.  The bothells who are still there raise cows now, but it use to be a working farm until the goverment started to regulate farming.  If you ever have a question, feel free to post it....I will get back to you....also if you add you zone and state beside your name others will have an idea where you are from.  Mine is z5/6 PA.  Have fun on all there other groups.

Hi Janice I was born and raised in your area. I went to High School in Connellsville and lived in the MT.s a place called White. I no longer live there now and I hope you are able to get your raised beds in some how for it would be good for you and not as much hard work as in the ground. You have a great day.

Tracey I spend way to much time on there also...but what do you do when you don't drive alone, and only do work when someone is around to help or pick me up...I am hoping that by Spring I am able to get my hubby to help with the garden. Thanks for the thought. There are special people out there who make my day. Hope you don't get the snow coming up from the south. Looks like we might get it from south and west...I will be at home,,,,looking out the window.

Was not familiar with this but will refer to it.  Living in the Pittsburgh area...the weather can change quickly.  Depends on which way the storms approach from.  Don't want any snow coming from the south east.

Hey guys, are you familiar with the Sunset National Gardening Zones?  I much prefer them over the traditional USDA zones.  I'm zone 32 here in Kennett Square.


This information matches up with the Sunset national Gardening Book which i love!

Happy New Year to you Tracey.  I am on facebook - I followed a few of my friends from here.  Not able to do as much as I would like since my stroke in 2009.  Need to get a raised garden built for me this spring. 

Hope you have a great year and have fun if you go in Feb.  Congrats on your class.  If you want to talk just send me something and I will respond.  See ya!!
