HAVE: Come Join Us - 4th Annual Tomato & Pepper Seed Exchange

hmacdona1August 30, 2011

Hi everyone,

I am hosting another Tomato and Pepper seed swap that will include members from a few different forums. I wanted to post this a bit early so you have time to collect seeds or place an order.

Here are the guidelines we will follow for this swap:color="#0000FF">

Seeds must be received by me no later than November 15th, so I recommend you mail your envelope no later than November 1st.

You can send "named varieties" of tomatoes or peppers (or both). Do not include mixes or seeds labeled "granny's mystery mix" or unnamed bell peppers or anything like that. I cannot, in fairness, send mixed or unknown packs of seed back to people that followed the instructions and only sent in "named varieties". If I receive anything like this, the seeds will be returned to you, unless they are clearly marked as bonus seeds.

If you are sending hybrid seeds, only F1 seeds from a commercial source are acceptable. Your source for the F1 seeds must be clearly marked on your envelope/seed pack. Do not send in seeds you have collected from a hybrid plant. They will not grow true to the original parent plant. If you are unsure if the seed you have collected is from a hybrid, please do your research online before mailing in your seeds.

A minimum of 10 seeds per packet. A maximum of 5 packets of the same seed. An overall maximum of 40 packets per person. Please stick to this limit as this ensures fairness and variety for all participants. Every year, I have a few people push past this limit and slip in a note that says "hope you don�t mind�.and by the way..I only want rare varieties in return"�LOL. Sorry folks that won�t work. It�s just not fair to others. Bonuses are of course more than welcome. I just ask that bonuses be marked accordingly.

Please ensure seed packets are clearly marked with the name, and whether they are heirloom, OP (Open Pollinated), or F1 hybrid seeds. If you are sending pepper seeds, it would help me a great deal with sorting if you could indicate on the packages if the peppers are sweet or hot as many individuals in the last swap had clear preferences. If seeds are from a commercial source, please note that as well. In another posting, I will provide a list of highly sought after seed varieties from last years swap, in case that�s of interest to those wondering what to send in.

If you send tomato seeds, you will receive tomato seeds in return. The same idea for peppers, unless you include a note indicating you want something different in return. You can also send in tomato seeds and ask for pepper seeds in return or visa versa, or any combination. I fully expect a large variety and volume of seed types to be able to accommodate this.

4) Please include a list of what you are sending, your wish list and if there are any seeds you do

not want to receive. It is very important to take the time to write out a list of what you are sending, otherwise I have to do it for you and I do not have time for that. If you are only interested in heirloom or OP, please tell me that as well. I will try my best to accommodate your wish list, but there are no guarantees of course. The variety will be completely dependent on what is sent in. In last year's swap, we were able to fill many items on people's wish lists so please take the time to prepare one - it will be worth your while. I do my best to be fair in this swap.

You will need to mail your seeds along with $1.25 in return postage stamps. If you are sending 10 or less seed packets, you should be fine just mailing in a regular envelope with seeds wrapped in tissue (I am happy to provide the return envelope in this case). If you are sending more than 10 seed packets, I would recommend you send a bubble envelope, with a return label inside and I will reuse the same bubble envelope to return your surprise seeds to you.

If you change your mind after registering, and no longer wish to participate, PLEASE notify me immediately so we do not delay the swap waiting for your seeds to arrive.

This will also save me a great deal of time trying to follow up and track people down.

I will email you privately with my mailing address once you have posted here to sign up for this swap. You must make sure that your gardenweb profile has your email address attached and it's visible to other members, so I can contact you. Please triple check this before signing up for this swap.

Any questions. Please let me know. Let's have fun exchanging seeds !!!!

Thanks��Heather

Please note - I will be out of town on business September 25th thru 29th and October 11th thru 15th and will not be responding to anyone during that time.

Wanted to touch base with everyone on wish lists. I really do encourage you to put together a wish list of tomato and/or pepper seeds that you'd be interested in getting. Some people hesitate because they think they're adding to my workload. You're not. That's really the main jest of this swap is to send you back seeds you don't already have. There are of course no guarantees, but taking a few minutes to put together a wish list is well worth your while.

Alternatively, there are folks who don't have a wish list, but they have an inventory of what they already have. They're just hoping to get things that are not already in their stash. In those cases, I would encourage you to send me the list of what you already have for seeds and I'll use that as a basis to come up with some nice surprises for you.

Wish lists and "already have" lists can be sent in the same envelope as your seeds. Or if it's easier for you, you could always send it to me by email attachment. You will find my personal email address in the welcome letter that's sent to you once you sign up.

Hope this helps to clarify if anyone was wondering.

I know there's some lurkers out there...come on..whatya waiting for. Come join our fun :)

Hi everyone,

We're up to 91 participants with lots of time for more to join in.

I've been asked if there is a minumum number of seed packets to participate. The answer is no. Only the maximum of 40 altogether with no more than 5 packs of any one type of seed. If you're just starting out and don't have much seed, this is a great way for you to expand your variety, and I would encourage you to participate.

Any further questions, please feel free to let me know.

Thanks....Heather

Today I received seeds from "theman7676".

I also received seeds from a member with the initials PB from Denman Island, BC. I'm sorry but I don't know who you are and you need to contact me with your gardeweb id. Folks, as a friendly reminder, when you send your seeds, please make sure you include a note inside your envelope that has your member id clearly marked. I need this to be able to keep track of whose seeds I've received and who I'm still waiting on. DB from Denman Island, can you please contact me and advise your member id?

Thank you.

As a heads up to everyone, I am out of town on business September 25th thru Sept 29th, and will not be able to respond to posts, email, or signups during that time. I will update you on any envelopes received this upcoming week when I return.

I am still needing someone with the initials PB from Denman Island to contact me. I have received your seeds but I have no idea who you are. I need you to get in touch with me and tell me your member id so I can track accordingly.

Thanks...Heather

Hi everyone,

I know there will be a few people that are struggling to finalize their wish lists. If you have your seeds all packed and ready to go, feel free to mail those now. You can always send me your wish list by email attachment later (by the deadline).

I keep all of the wish lists in a spreadsheet for easy sorting, so it's no work for me to add to your list (or delete from it, if you already received a wish list item from a trade).

Thanks....Heather

Hi everyone,

Now that we have closed off the swap to new participants - it is time to move forward with more fun.

I have some miscellaneous vegetable seeds to give away as bonuses. These are only for the participants of this swap (from various forums). All are commercial purchases I picked up this year. There are very limited quantities of these, so here is how were going to do it:

1) Respond if interested and provide me with your top 6 picks, in order of preference. Please be specific. Do not respond, saying I am interested in any of the melons for example, as I will be dividing them up to those that responded with my specific instructions followed first. You will lose out if you are not specific. You can either respond by private message, or post here, it does not matter. I am going by time stamps on all responses, no matter what way you communicate with me. If you respond by email or private message, I will acknowledge receipt within a couple of days so you know it came through ok.

2) Preference for specific types will be given on a first come first serve basis, so you need to respond quickly.

3) I cannot guarantee you are able to get any of these seeds. It all depends on how many respond, and how quickly you respond, and how many individuals request the same seed. This is why I am asking you to identify your top 6 picks in order of preference, so your odds of getting something are higher.

4) I will post a periodic update as certain varieties are fully depleted.

5) PLEASE RESPOND NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 21ST IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY OF THESE SEEDS.

Here is the list of bonus seeds:

Bean - Rattlesnake Pole Bean

Eggplant - Black Beauty
Eggplant - Goya Kumba
Eggplant - Gretel
Eggplant - Hansel
Eggplant - Japanese Millionaire
Eggplant - Kecskemeti Lila
Eggplant - Round Mauve
Eggplant - Turkish Orange
Eggplant - Twinkle

Melon - Mekti Painted Serpent

Radish - China Rose
Radish - Easter Egg

Watermelon - Sugar Baby
Watermelon - Sugar Lee
Watermelon - Yellow Crimson

Have you signed into gardenweb and tried sending me a message via gardenweb?

Perhaps you could post your question in this forum? Not really sure what help you're looking for from me.

Just posting the updated list of what's now available for bonus seeds. Coolbythecoast has graciously donated some more seeds. These new additions are marked with an *.

These are available to participants of this swap. There are very limited quantities of these, so here is how were going to do it:

1) Respond if interested and provide me with your top 6 picks, in order of preference. Please be specific. Do not respond, saying I am interested in any of the melons for example, as I will be dividing them up to those that responded with my specific instructions followed first. You will lose out if you are not specific. You can either respond by private message, or post here, it does not matter. I am going by time stamps on all responses, no matter what way you communicate with me. If you respond by email or private message, I will acknowledge receipt within a couple of days so you know it came through ok.

2) Preference for specific types will be given on a first come first serve basis, so you need to respond quickly.

3) I cannot guarantee you are able to get any of these seeds. It all depends on how many respond, and how quickly you respond, and how many individuals request the same seed. This is why I am asking you to identify your top 6 picks in order of preference, so your odds of getting something are higher.

4) I will post a periodic update as certain varieties are fully depleted.

5) PLEASE RESPOND NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 28th IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY OF THESE SEEDS.

Here is the list of bonus seeds:

Beet Detroit Dark Red, Medium Top
Broad Leaf Batavian Endive
Cucumber - Double Yield
Eggplant - Black Beauty
* Eggplant Fengyung Purple
Eggplant - Goya Kumba
Eggplant - Kecskemeti Lila
* Eggplant Pingtung Long
* Eggplant Rosa Bianca
* Eggplant Slim Jim
* Eggplant Snowy
* Eggplant Kumari Sri Lanka
Leaf Brocolli
Love in a Mist (Purple flower)
Melon - Mekti Painted Serpent
Radish - China Rose
Saisai Leaf Radish
Spaghetti Squash
Watermelon - Sugar Baby
Watermelon - Sugar Lee
Watermelon - Yellow Crimson

Thanks ..Heather

Today I received seeds from "phpete".

As a friendly reminder to everyone, you need to get your seeds mailed no later than Nov 1st. It's too late to mail them after that as I will not get them in time, and will not hold up the swap waiting on seeds that were mailed after the deadline.

There are still a number of people that I haven't heard from yet, so I would really appreciate if you could update me when you have mailed your seeds.

Thanks a bunch....Heather

Final reminder folks...your seeds must be in the mail by Nov 1st. There are still a number of people on this forum that I have not heard from. I have send a couple of reminder messages to everyone, and would very much appreciate just a quick communication to let me know if you are no longer participating in this swap.....or when you mail your seeds.

Your communication is very important to helping me run this swap smoothly and to avoid unnecessary delays.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Please contact me asap so I can update my records accordingly. I need to be clear on whose seeds I've received and which ones I'm still waiting for.

* Dirtscratcher2010
* Greenthumb2011
* HoosierJoe
* PLSell
* Rgvnewf
* Sagg30
* Takama
* Tomazo
* Vronp

Folks, I have emailed you on a few occassions reminding you of the deadline (Nov 1st) and asking that you 1) advise me when your seeds have been mailed or 2) tell me you are no longer in this swap. I do not understand why there has been no communication from you. I really do not have time to continue to follow up with numerous participants.

As such, I am not going to wait on your seeds. I have no choice but to assume they are not coming. If you haven't already mailed your seeds, it's too late now. I won't get them in time. If I get any envelopes that are postmarked after today, they will be returned to you, unopened with the original seeds sent back to you. I will not email anyone on this list to advise your envelope was returned, because I'm not even going to open it to find out who it came from. If you sent your envelope by today, I strongly recommend you let me know right away, or I will not wait on your envelope and there will be no seeds left to swap for the ones you sent in.

Thanks everyone.

A quick update for everyone....as I'm sure you're very anxious to get your surprise packages back. Once all of the envelopes have been received, I will get started on filling and remailing your "surprise" packages back to you. I'm waiting on 40+ envelopes, and I expect the majority will arrive close to mid November.

I will post updates in this forum when I start remailing envelopes. Please remember...it will likely take a couple of weeks for your envelope to arrive once I've mailed it.

I would really appreciate if you could let me know when your envelope has arrived.

Thanks....Heather

Hi folks,

I'm still waiting on a few envelopes to arrive and then I'll be able to move forward with filling and remailing envelopes.

I may be delayed in giving you updates on Nov 15th and 16th as I'm running full-day workshops both days, which means I'll be putting in 18 hour work days. If I have any "umph" left when I get home at night...I'll give you an update on envelopes received...if not...you'll hear from me eventually...I promise :)

Meanwhile...Rick_in_Va was kind enough to donate some Chinese Scarlet/Pumkin tree eggplant to give as bonuses. Let me know asap if interested. Once again..I'll be going by time stamps on responses. First come first serve.

I also have a few cucumber double yield seeds left to give away as bonuses. If you didn't respond to this offer previously, let me know if you want any of these.

Thanks....Heather

Hi everyone,

Have received a couple of envelopes but am still waiting on a few more. meanwhile I am still working away on sorting, researching tomato types so I know who they're suited for and adding to the spreadsheet database so wish lists can be scanned. It will take me a while to get through this, and cross reference have lists, do not want lists, and wish lists.....so thanks for your patience.

I've had a few impatient people contact me already asking why I haven't started mailing envelopes yet, so I thought it would be best if I posted an update, so you can have some perspective on what's involved. It would be quick and easy if I just closed my eyes and randomly stuffed envelopes like some swaps, but that's obviously not the intention of this swap.

Thanks for all of your patience everyone. All of you have been great...and I know you are anxiously waiting on your surprises.

Will give you further updates once I've started mailing envelopes.

Hey no worries Heather, I think we all appreciate how much time and effort you put into this swap to make it one of the best on the forums every year. With all the participants, and the attention to detail, we will all greatly appreciate you trying to fill our wishlists :) A couple extra days makes no difference, as we won't be using the seeds for a couple months anyways.

Thank you to everyone who send in seeds and participated, it helps make this one of the best swaps around ... and a HUGE TREMENDOUS thank you to Heather. The amount of time and effort that you put into this is amazing, taxing I'm sure, but so much appreciated by all of us. Thank you for organizing this swap again and for taking the time to help make sure that we all get some of the seeds that we really really want, and a great variety of new ones to try as well!

I wish I could send you something off your wishlist as a thank you, but I took a look and don't have any of them ... your wishlist in much the same as mine in some respects, lol!

But I did want to let you know that they arrived, and to thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this!

Thanks everyone for your participation and patience while I fill envelopes. Next year, if I decide to do this again, I think I'll bump up the deadline by a week, so I'm not stuffing envelopes when I should be getting ready for Christmas...LOL.

Take care everyone. Enjoy the Christmas season with your friends, family and of course...beloved pets.
