Request: coin book (Near the experimental farm) Withdrawn - Hello friends! I hope everyone is enjoying this very easy going fall weather we are having. As I am taking a break from cleaning up the yard (plus, its raining), I thought I would ask if anyone has a coin book they are not using. My teenager has a part-time job in a store and buys out the painted coins when they come in. Right now, she is saving them in a box. But she does like to look at them and pull out the doubles to give to my 9 year old nephew. It would be nicer if she had them in a book like the one I found online. pic attached. If I can't find a surplus one, I will buy the one pictured, but I thought I would check here first... Thank you all and stay well. K.

Offer: ficus benjamina tree 7' tall (Near the experimental farm) Gifted - free weeping fig tree. just the tree, keeping my pot. full disclosure: its high maintenance. changes in temperature, light, look at it the wrong way and it drops its leaves. they grow back and it is leafy now. but it is starting to drop leaves again because of the change in light. Please bring a large bag, a big enough vehicle and your patience. Offer: Giant recycling bin from quebec (Near the experimental farm) Gifted - This bin came from my farm that I sold awhile ago. I used it to move a tree or two over the years. It is still in great shape but I have no use for it anymore. The wheels are solid and there are no holes in it.

Request: garden tools (Near the experimental farm) Withdrawn - Hello friends, Some of my tools are no longer what they used to be. Namely, my wheelbarrow. My wheelbarrow is in really bad shape. I realize that most of you are gardeners and want to keep your tools. But on the off chance that someone may be downsizing and moving in to a condo where your gardening will be much simpler, I would happily give your garden tools a new life in my yard. And if you are moving in to a condo, then I will happily provide a few plants for your balcony next spring. :) Thank you to the kind fullcircle member who gifted me her pitchfork. It's perfect! Oh, and now that fall is here, I am starting to prepare my small fruit trees (started a few from seed back in March) for winter. I am hoping to invert tomato cages and wrap them in burlap. Does anyone have any spare tomato cages? They don't have to be pretty just conical... Thank you all for your consideration and I hope everyone is keeping safe and well and enjoying the start of fall.

Request: wire mesh baskets (Near the experimental farm) Received - Hello friends! I am hoping someone may have a wire mesh basket or two or three that they no longer need. If so, I have a big need. I will re-purpose them as cages to protect my plants from a curious cat who thinks everything is catnip. They do not need to be pretty as I am likely going to paint them all white anyway to make them pretty and matchy. :) Thank you for your consideration! K.

Offer: Jerusalem artichoke plants (Near the experimental farm) Gifted - Aka sunchokes or wild sunflower. Just dug up a bunch if anyone wants any. I have a few folks interested. Tomorrow, I will bundle them up into smaller bunches. Request: extra veggie seedlings (Near the experimental farm) Expired - Hi all, So, my daughter and I sowed some seeds a little over a week ago. The fast stuff: cucumber, zucchini, pumpkin and various other squashes. Guess who got to them before we did?...that's right, wildlife. Sigh, I love the wildlife that is all around and I even take pictures of it because we are so lucky to be in a world that is shared with those that live carefree. But they eat EVERYTHING. They didn't give our seeds a chance. It would appear that moments after we put the seeds in the ground, the chipmunks and squirrels went in after them. I am going to try again with seeds, but if anyone has too many seedlings and wants to give them some hope of growing elsewhere, please send me an email. I will happily come and pick up your seedlings and put them in our garden with a little cloche on top to protect it until it is big enough to make it on its own. Yes, I am learning. The wildlife is teaching me. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day! :) Offer: Daylily plants (Near the experimental farm) Gifted - Daylilies. Not sure if they are orange or yellow. We have both in our yard. These ones were found in a clump at the back of the house. Request: Poblano peppers (Near the experimental farm) Expired - Hi there! Does anyone have any extra poblano pepper plants? I tried growing them from seed but didn't have much success.. Thank you very much and have a lovely day!

Offer: Day lilies (Near the experimental farm) Gifted - I did some gardening today and thinned out a massive patch of day lilies. I can't remember if they are yellow or orange because I have both. In fact, they did get mixed up in a lot of spots and became very pretty as the yellow is a little lower than the orange when they flower. Very pretty. Request: Perennials (Near the experimental farm) Expired - Hello there! After a glorious day of gardening, and emptying my front garden of all the garlic mustard, I realize that awful weed has choked out some of my favourite perennials! :( Would anyone have any extra evening primrose, blue or yellow iris, bleeding hearts, or just anything that has colour and flowers?... I could trade in day lilies as garlic mustard had absolutely no effect on them. Lol. I hope everyone is staying safe and keeping well. K. Request: Poblano peppers (Near the experimental farm) Expired - Hi there! Does anyone have poblano pepper seeds? I am hoping to build a pepper plant wall around my tomato plants this year and am hoping for all spicy peppers to discourage the rabbits and squirrels. Actually, if anyone has any extra hot pepper seedlings, I could use them for my wall... :) Thank you much and have a lovely day!
