This means that I am running around my house and yard searching for things to snip off, pull out, bag up, and gather together. Its amazing how easy it is to make a new plant out of practically nothing. Get yourself a little rooting hormone and you are gold. You could literally never buy another plant or seed again if you just put a little bit of work in to it, and I do mean little.
Here are some of the things around my house I am pulling from to add to the plant swap tomorrow:
I rooted this from a cutting and will take more cuttings from it for the swap.
We started from seed & rooted from cuttings various herbs including:
yarrow, lavender, rosemary, & this basil
Started from seeds, we ended up with more than we will use
snapping off various succulent cuttings from around my yard
A wonderful indoor plant that has grown long. I've snipped off cuttings for people to root.
We started a little bit too many lettuces so I'll have a few to swap
This shows a great example of how succulents multiply.
You can easily twist off these lower heads and root them for a whole new plant.

I can't wait for the swap tomorrow. What a great way to start a garden or green up your home all for free.
I leave you today with a picture of some artichokes in my front yard. I watch these things grow larger and larger every day and I can't wait to sink my teeth in to them. I like the background of lawns & cars. Such a stark contrast. Get outside and enjoy this beautiful day!
