Medford, MA Seed Swap: 2/21 and 2/28

leira(6 MA)February 18, 2013

Hi all,

I'm organizing a seed swap at the Medford Farmer's Market this Thursday and next. We've got lots of donations of seeds to start out with, so there will be lots of options, even for the first swappers to walk in the door.

Here's the announcement: Seed Swap

How did your first week turn out?

Hi pixie_lou,

The first week was a resounding success! Lots of folks hadn't heard word of the swap, so they showed up without seeds. However, we'd been able to "seed the pot" with some donations of year-old seeds from a couple of local garden centers, so no one went away empty-handed. As you can see from the photo, there was plenty to choose from.

I had a blast, and I would absolutely do it again.

I did not, however, succeed in my goal of leaving the swap with fewer seeds than I started with. Oops.

The swap is going on again this Thursday, though I won't be the one minding the table. If you're in the area, please come by and swap some seeds!

It sounds like a lot of fun. If I was closer to Medford I'd definitely stop by.

Hey, lissatink, you've got 2.5 more hours!

I totally hear you about the "don't need more seeds" thing, though!
