Dark Horse Inn and Plants

Wed July 10 at 5:00 PM, The dark horse inn
942 Geneva Ave, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I am growing a ton of mint from cuttings and I have several pepper plants I am growing from seed. One of these plants is mine- that leaves 4 extra. I anticipate in late June/early July I will have even more things from seed/cuttings. I have been giving some away as gifts to my best friend and my favorite bartender- but this is getting ridiculous. I don't want to compost viable plants. I propose on one of my days off (all on weekdays, and I wont know which for a bit) we meet at my local bar/restaurant The Dark Horse Inn on Geneva at 5pm-10pm on a to be determined weekday in late June/early July and we can all have a chill hang and eat and drink and support a local place and maybe some of you can give my plants a new home.
Edit! SO I'm thinking Wednesday July 10th is a viable date. As we get closer to that date I'll throw up more info about the plants I'll probably have. I still have a few cuttings experiments I'm running currently. Some people made comments about bringing their cuttings and stuff to share, I am so down for that. This is a tentative date at the moment, but more likely then not, this will be it. Hopefully I'll see a good amount of you then!

Second edit! I have 8 really big mints- in re-purposed larger pots and I wont know til next week how many of the smaller ones will have made it. But a fair few. I have 4 romaine lettuces and 6 Borage (also we'll see how they take to transplant shock so fingers crossed on these numbers) I have 2 spaghetti squash and 2 scallop squash, (again transplant shock can happen so that's a hopeful number) 9 dwarf sunflowers and 6 little poppy pots. Still have those 4 peppers, though be aware one of them is a certified runt. The African Blue Bush Basil is questionable- just had to trash two. I'm watering the rest with tappin roots- fingers crossed. The Yerba Buena cuttings have taken well, but I only have a few of those. July 10th is a definite, and I look forward to seeing you all then.

Forgot to add: Have three fennel, but we'll see how they take to transplanting- their roots were a little eh.

Last update, sorry, long night: Threw up a quick post that shows some of the bounty. So people have an idea of whats on offer. Please come and take plants off my hands!

I probably won't be able to attend, but I love this idea.

This sounds great, I love fresh mint! Also I love chill hangs! I'm going to be away for most of June so the later the better.

Late June Early July for sure- There's this big sale at work around the solstice that gets CRAZY so last week June, First couple July would be the first time I could really breath. I won't know what day of the week it'll be till at least mid-June to boot- Just want to gauge interest at this point and make sure people can maybe look at their calendars and give me feedback on availability.

I'm interested, but 5 pm on a weekday will most likely count me out, at least at the start.

The dark horse closes at 10pm so If you arrive later I'm sure I'll have a plant or two left ( I have a lot of plants take some plants please.)

This sounds awesome. My wife will doubtlessly squeel when I tell her about it.

I'm interested! I really enjoy building my container garden out of plants I've adopted from friends, grown from seed, propagated from cuttings, or (mostly) propagated from pieces found on the sidewalk, instead of buying plants, just for fun (I call it my "trash garden"). If anyone wants more plants, I could bring some of my zillion jade plant pieces I've picked up from the ground and put into reused glass jars.

This was great! The plants are all sitting outside, taking in the night air. What a good event, and I am excited for the next crop that will need homes
