February 2nd, 2006, 08:06 AM
I'm taking a well deserved day off of work today to get several things done. Then this afternoon I get to take a drive to Baker Creek and seed shop.
I figured I won't have to pay shipping that way. Silly though because I realize the gas will cost more than the $2.50 shipping fee. But hey I want to go.

I'll be at the spring fest as well. Wouldn't miss it. My mom has the same plan, to by some plants at it. She got a great tomato plant there last year but never wrote down or kept track of the name and promptly forgot it.

It has been a while since this thread was started, but it has been a long time since I visited the forums. From what I personally have observed, you can expect lots of gardeners visiting with other gardeners, vendors selling plants [Baker Creek's seed store is open with seeds at a great price, too], music (country, western, gospel, bluegrass -- bring your instruments and join in!), excellent seminars given by experienced gardeners, a few historical demonstrations, and food is also available. Their festivals are the only "vacations" that I ever take, although they are working vacations. I would recommend arriving at about 10:00 on Sunday, while the selection is still at its best. Most people make their rounds looking at everything that is available, then make their purchases. I really appreciated all the helpful information learned in the few seminars that I've been able to attend.

We plan to attend the Spring Fest also. Also our first time. All our trips/vacations are to visit gardens, Seed catalog test gardens, Festivals, Botanical gardens. You name it. Had not heard of the Baker Creek until this year. We are only about 4 hours away so really looking forward to the trip. Comming over in the motorhome. Can't wait.
