The 2009 seed exchange will be on January 10th, keep the date. Please let me know if you will be joining in. I will send details in December to those signing up.

It will be a pot luck and seed exchange.

I am in South Minneapolis a 5-10 min drive north of The Mall of America.

Hi there Pauline!

I am looking forward to this! We should have a great time sharing and sorting and stuffin' our faces! Thanks for hosting!

I am busy making up individualized packets with the names of the seeds written on the packets to share with those who can come!

Hmmm- I guess I should start thinking about offering the mail in version of the Great Minnesota Blues Seed Swap for those who frequent our Forum- but may not be able to attend... Look for details soon!

I will be there.

Someone gave me a butternut squash in the spring exchange. It did wonderful for me. This is the first time I ate a butternut squash and I love it. I heard Hubbard winter squash is very good too. Anyone has seed for that?

Julie,

The mail in version of the Great Minnesota Blues Seed Swap is such a good idea I am glad you are thinking in that direction again.

I too am getting my seeds ready. My big challenge is not getting to many more seeds for wintersowing than I already have.

Hi Pauline,

I don't have much luck starting seeds, but since you are so close, I will try to make it. Is it OK that I do not bring much seeds at all? I have some old seeds, but do not know if they are still good. May

I will be sending the information to those of you coming shortly. I just sent the rough draft to Julie for editing. She is the expert on these things and I don't want to leave anything out. Julie, how do you like your title, "expert"?

Funny that- "Expert"!!
Far from the truth of it I would say- but thanks for your selection of words and deeds-
I do hope you can attend Mary!
Please- if you are thinking about coming- DO! -come on over and join in the fun!
If you come... I (and others) will share with you how to flawlessly, (almost) every time- start your tons of seeds with out needing warmth or lights- with out pesky bugs or watering schedules, no damp off..... None of the troubles you have ever encountered when starting your seeds indoors. There is a way even we here in MN can garden all winter long!! Truly!!
Come on= post your interest here so Zen can send you the details!

I haven't received an email yet with directions. I responded way back on Nov 21st. Please resend directions. I ran into Mary (happyinthegarden) the other day in the hallway at work and she said she would send the directions too. Hopefully between the two of you I will get an email with directions!!

Thanks

Zen - Yes your email and Mary's both made it!

Joe - If you come to the swap, yes bring your pepper seeds. I start and grow hot peppers and always looking for different ones to try.

I can't find some of my seed bags that were harvested from the garden this past fall. Of course nobody at home knows anything about the missing seeds! If anyone has a couple of trades each of 'Chocolate Joe Pye' and 'Sea Holly' that they could bring it would be appreciated. I promised both sisters I would start them some this winter! Hopefully at somepoint in time, by missing seed bags will appear.

Thanks
Sandy

Including the maybes. We are up to 18 people. I believe I will need to bring out a folding table or two and some chairs up from the basement. This will be fun and cozy. No need to worry we just had 27 people here for Christmas dinner.

Thanks.

No guarantees, and I don't have much for seeds, but I'll try to get down there.
