A friend of mine has a small commercial greenhouse operation in Northeast 
Georgia (Elberton, GA), near the GA/South Carolina border. She called me 
today to let me know that she's clearing out greenhouses next week to get 
ready for fall planting. She *hates* to throw edibles away and will give 
away flats, 4" and 1-gallon pots of eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, etc. 
etc. And she's got 17 flats of sun-loving coleus to dispose of (give 

So, if anybody on the list lives within driving distance, it might be 
worth your while to give Fran a call tomorrow and see if she can hold some

The company is Healing Heart Herbs. Owner's name is Fran Moorehead. Her 
telephone number is 706.213.0455. DO NOT CALL HER AFTER 9P.M. under any 
circumstances, since she and her husband get up before 5a.m. to tend to 
their farm and greenhouse operation.

She is a fine grower and a fine person. Grows magnificent herbs.
