Anyway, I really enjoyed our trade and look forward to those little Spring flowers breaking through the ground :)

This review is a bit late, but I am trying to get caught up on my trade reviews...
Melinda is utterly awesome. Five stars all the way. I sent her an SASE for peppers she was wanting to get rid of. To say she had a TON is a drastic understatement. The 6x9 bubble envelope I sent was packed to the maximum. I had to send her another envelop!!! It, too, came back stuffed.
Communication is great. She keeps you up to date on your trades & is honest.

I would like to thank you very much for your kindness for including the >>CucuzzaNow seeds are just dimes to the man in the store And the dimes are the things that he needs, And I've been to buy them in seasons before But have thought of them merely as seeds; But it flashed through my mind as I took them this time,
