I'm really happy that I joined this trade. I'm pretty sure it's going to be great.

I'll try my best not to disappoint : )

I already know of some pretty cool stuff that's on the way, but I'm not telling ...

Just want to sing Bonnie's praises for having run the peppers swap. There were two dozen participants, and I'm sure well over a hundred varieties, maybe over two hundred. Just got my seeds back in the mail last night. Not only did I get back several more packets than I sent (and much more interesting ones at that), but she'd even gone out and BOUGHT one of the varieties on my wish list. THANK YOU BONNIE!

It was an excellent swap. Now to find room for more peppers. Kentucky Blue Grass/Fescue may be on the losing end of finding space.

Thanks, Guys!!! Glad you enjoyed the swap.

Ian, I didn't keep track, but I would guess it was somewhere between 200 - 300 different varieties of peppers sent in. I think there was around 650 packets of seeds exchanged.

Greg, we spent big bucks putting in sod the year we moved here, and I've spent the last 4 years gradually removing it, to make more room for flowers, and edibles. Grass is highly over rated!

Three more of my peppers are starting to sprout. Still tempted to plant more though ...
