WANTED: ~*~Welcome to WinterSwap 2011~*~ Sorting Seeds & Sending

sassybutterfly_2008(7 NorthWest GA)December 9, 2011

Let's stick with the new thread for status updates, general chit chat and news on your seeds heading home to you!

Here's where the swap stood last week when we were still waiting on about 6 more packages:

sassybutterfly_2008(7 NorthWest GA)

I'm still waiting on two packages, I've emailed the members.

I went ahead and input everyone's SENT list and WISH lists so I can cross-reference them. If you did NOT send me a wish list, PLEASE make sure that your GW page shows some wishes so that I can be sure you receive something you'll be happy with!

I'm very proud of all of you. So many people sent in extra seeds and a couple of you sent in some postage (which was greatly needed because the newbies are definitely going to be getting larger packages than what they sent in!) If any others want to contribute a few extra stamps that may be leftover from what you mailed in, please let me know. I won't do it w/ out your permission.

I think everyone is going to be very pleased with the selections. There's something nice for everyone and so many kind gifts that were sent in! Both for myself and for the other members here in this swap!! I'm really touched by everyone's thoughtfulness.. tho I suppose I shouldn't be.. we ARE all gardeners and sharing is one of the things that we do best! :)

Here's the BIG tub of seeds I'll be sorting this weekend!

Thanks!

Does anyone want to take a guess at how many seeds were sent in for the swap this year? I'll offer you a bonus seed package of 3 varieties (hopefully from your wish list!) for the closest guess!

*HINT* It's over 500....

Guess away!

Hmm.... roughly 40 people, figure maybe 15 to 25 seed packs each on average... so 950.

If the extras bag is included with the total amount, and that's what I see in the back... I'm probably going to guess too much, but I have to say... 1520.

Great guesses everyone! Keep 'em coming. I'll take guesses up until 12/23 at midnight. The prize will be mailed to you after Christmas!

1/2 of the swap packages went out in the mail today. I had hoped to do them all but had to leave and take my son to the ER this afternoon. He was having sharp pains in his chest area. Everything seems ok, he has to go back again next week for another xray..

Sooo the remaining 1/2 will go out tomorrow. I just hope the usps manages to get them delivered in time for the solstice!!!

Thanks to you all, you did a WONDERFUL job and made my job pretty easy with the wish lists and gifts to eachother! I hope everyone is very pleased with the selections you receive I tried really hard to make sure everyone had items from their wish lists or at least as close to the items as I could find. I dipped into my own stashes more than once to share a bit of something special, and those of you that sent in REALLY rare seeds might have had the packet divided up among several members requesting that seed. I figured you'd all be happy even with just a smaller amount of something you really want than only one member receiving it. :)

I'll send out more updates soon. Please drop by and let me know when your packages have arrived!

Thanks, it's been a pleasure!

Wendy, I am sure you did a fabulous job. How do you get such a short turnaround time? - I never could pull that off as a swap host.

Hope all is okay with your son; "having chest pains, Mom" are not words a mother wants to hear.

I hope everything turns out ok with your son, Wendy!

How'd you sort through all those packets so fast?! What's your trick? I try sorting into different groups and then small piles (perennials: shade perennials - sun perennials, etc) but I somehow manage to get everything mixed up and forgetting what I have in the end.

I'm almost ready for the solstice! Grabbed some MG yesterday, but I found a Fafard retailer nearby. And the best thing? I thought Fafard mixes were expensive in comparison, but this nursery is selling for $5.99/2.8cu ft bag (I know... I better call to double check before I go up there to get some tomorrow). The problem... is that they only have the 1P mix and I'm worried about the wetting agent in it causing the soil to be too moist. But I guess MG has wetting agents too and lots use that, so idk... I wish I could find the coir mixes. What does everyone else use?

Thanks for hosting this swap, Wendy!

Jeff, it's very expensive in Virginia Beach. Fafard's potting mix is
14.99 for that large bag at Mcdonald's nurseries. The Fafards
seed starting mix is 16.99 for large bag.

I called the Virginia Beach nursery to compare the prices and double check. Turns out I was told the wrong price at the Chesapeake location. Good thing I called before going out there. Ah well, should've known it was too good to be true.

Good morning everyone!!

My son is doing much better, now, thank you for asking! He's on strong antibiotics... it was a collaboration of screaming tonsils and bronchitis but after another dr's visit yesterday we seem to have it under control.

A few have asked how did I sort and send so quickly? Well... My biggest goal was to TRY to get packages back to everyone by the Solstice for those of you that wanted to honor that planting date. But with extending the deadline and packages not arriving til later that put a bit of a deadline looming in my head..lol. So I just put on a big pot of coffee... turned on some music and did 2 days and nights of nonstop seed sorting with a few hour power naps in between. I started out by putting all the seeds into a rubbermaid and then sorting then alphabetically. Then I entered the entire amount into an excel spreadsheet so if someone says I'd like armeria.. I could just go to the spreadsheet and say ok, someone sent that in and I'd go pull it. So I would mark that one taken and each of you had your own individual spreadsheets of what you sent in, your wish lists and a 'sent' list so that I could cross-reference everything. It sounds like a lot.. but I love data entry and spreadsheets from my days in Administrative positions so for me it was actually enjoyable..lol. :)

I don't know how the usps will deliver the packages being so close to Christmas but all I can say is that everyone's pkgs have been in the mail a few days now so HOPEFULLY they will all arrive before Christmas at least. I might make a few changes to deadlines next year tho, I'm thinkin'..

As far as swap winners, I need to make some announcements regarding the various games:

For the "Get to Know your Fellow Swappers Game"(previous thread):

'Onedaylily' was the winner and she won the following tomato goodies:
'Anna Russian'
'Black from Tula'
'Depp's Pink Firefly'
'Fantome Du Laos'
'Cherokee Green'
'Golden Queen'
'Pineapple'
**Your prize is going out to you today in separate package**

For the "Word Find Game":
Caroleapony was the winner of this game with a whopping 11 pages FILLED and emailed to me..way to go!
I have placed an order for some of your prizes this week so whenever they arrive I'll be mailing that out to you !

For the "How MANY Packs of Seed Game":
The total was a whopping 1,826 packs!! Now, some of those packs that were jam packed were divided into smaller packs to share with more people, too... but the total amount SENT IN was 1,826. Which means that.....Indiana.Matt YOU ARE THE WINNER!! You won a bonus 3 seed packs (that have also been recently ordered) so when those come in I'll get those out to you!

Thanks to everyone that participated. I will be offering up newbie packs in January of the leftovers, as well as offering some up to the wintersown project. I hope everyone enjoys their selections and don't forget~ please post here when your package arrives!! ...

The Advent candles are lit. I have a cup of Whittard of Chelsea black tea (sent by my daughter from the UK). I have done my spiritual reading (daily Bible readings, and daily reading from The Celtic Spirit by Caitlin Mathews). A lovely, thoughtfully chosen package of seeds arrived on this Winter Solstice evening. At this time, this moment, life is perfect.

Thank you, Wendy, and my fellow swappers. You are all wonderful. Happy first day of Chanukah, blessed Solstice, and a merry Christmas to all.

The package arrived today. Just finished browsing through it, and I've got to say that I am very happy! Almost everything was from my wish list, and those that weren't were plants or varieties unfamiliar to me that I can't wait to try.

Thank you for the card, Wendy! And thank you to those who sent gifts! What a surprise when I saw those packages were addressed to me! Thank you all very very much. Today went from wet and dreary to [still wet but] joyous.

So many varieties, so neatly packaged. Thank you everyone for sharing your seeds. My first year of winter sowing is going to be a blast!

Happy Holidays and Winter Sowing (keep warm!),

I got my huge package of seeds today and I am so amazed and overwhelmed. Amazed at how Wendy was able to juggle this whole thing, and overwhelmed by what to do next. Thanks for all the special gifts, it was truly unexpected and I can say that my seed wishlist has been fulfilled and exceeded. Getting the seeds is the easy part, getting them growing with a place to put them... not so easy. I finished 3 WS containers yesterday and not so sure what to plant next. Cut my finger in the process...ouch! Maybe some grasses or perenial flowers. Whatever, I'll have to come up with some more containers quick-like, maybe Starbucks will hook me up. Thank goodness I have a yard of topsoil to use if I run out of starter mix!! Thanks everyone.. you made my day.

THANK YOU to all of you wonderful gardeners!

I also feel determined to do an even better job next year, gifting items to people and sending in lots of seeds. What a joy to receive this package, it does seem like Christmas today!

And a huge thanks to Wendy, I can't imagine how you sorted so many seeds and read through so many wish lists! Thanks everyone for a great winterswap. Happy planting!

Of all the Xmas events...concerts, parades, Nutcracker, band concert, church program, tv shows, Arthur movie, parties, The Grinch movie, buying presents...this is so personal and fun. We're all sharing what's close to our hearts and lives and we spread cheer and joy. You're all encouragers in a tough world. You're living your faith and I have found this in the strangest places this Christmas season. Thanks for reflecting real love. I haven't received my seeds yet and that's okay. Just living on anticipation is intoxicating some days.

I got my package today too and was shocked. From the seeds I received... this was more like the wishlist swap than just a wintersowing swap! Usually in a non-wishlist swap like this, more than half the seeds I get back I either already have or can't grow in my zone. Not this time! I'm keeping almost all these seeds to grow myself. I even got some that I was planning on ordering because I never thought I would get them in a swap. Now I don't even have to place the order.

Truly a great swap. You did an amazing job Wendy. Thanks to all the swap participants and gift-givers. You all are great and made my day. Happy Holidays to everyone.

Merry Christmas!!

I am so humbled and thankful for the appreciation and compliments. I was SO worried..lol. I tried really hard to find at least SOME things on wish lists and share other things that I had just a bit of. I'm just plain thrilled that everyone seems so happy thus far. Thanks to all of you for making this a fun and wonderful Christmas that I hope we can start a yearly tradition of doing.

OH~ and by the way, our dear Texaspinkie's seed package finally arrived after looking thru many many states...lol. I'll be talking to her after Christmas about how to proceed with getting these seeds out to you all. If you receive a card in the mail.. that'd be why :)

Merry Christmas to you all, may you find peace and joy in your gardens and in your lives in the coming year.

I know this is late, but I've been traveling for several weeks and JUST got home to my amazingly wonderful package of seeds!! I was absolutely bowled over by how many of my wishes were included. I'm soooo impressed with Wendy's thoughtful sorting! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And I was really shocked to see several gifts for me -- as a relative newcomer, I never expected anyone to go out of their way to send some seeds just for me. Wow.

Thank you all so much for this wonderful swap. And especially to Wendy for all the hard work that this entailed.
