Do you have extra seeds from vegetables, herbs, legumes, flowers,

that you've collected from last year's plants or bought from the store? .

If you'd like to swap some of your seeds for another kind of seed,

then just wrap them up into envelopes of one or two dozen, .

label them with the name, year (2009), and what kind they are

e.g. heirloom , organic, conventional, unknown and the also

the number of seeds in your packets .

How It Works - Everyone lays out their seed envelopes on the table,

then on the honor system, everyone takes an equal number of packets

from the seeds offered. Sometimes there is enough to allow everyone

to take home significantly more of certain items. .

2010 Indoor Seed Start Date Windows are at hand; February 9-March 24!! .

See you on Harding Avenue in Belmont from 1-3pm Follow the signs! .

Meh. I brought a whole bunch, but not many people came by,so there wasn't a whole lot to choose from. The weather didn't help either, but I got a couple of things to try out this summer, so I'm happy, and I was able to share my extra seeds.

I have a feeling a lot of people already started wintersowing. Hold on the seeds. There will be a couple of swaps this spring around here. The one in Billerica draws a lot of wintersowers, and I bet there will be who would like to start their stash for next year.

Discussions about gardenswaps start around the beginning of April.

I am actually quite looking forward to the plant swap in Billerica again this year! Last year was my first, and I had so much fun meeting people and picking up "babies" for me and family. I've actually WS'd some this year, my first, and hope to have some of those for the swap as well as extra plants I'm indoor sowing.

See you in Billerica this year then!
