Thanks Rick_in_VA and DMForcier...I did get your updates previously and I do appreciate it. Thanks again...Heather

P.S. I just posted my previous note because there are a few people that have not posted an update, or replied to my multiple emails followups. Yet I can see they are still actively posting in gardenweb. I just needed to put those people on notice. Every year, there are a couple of people that ignore my emails or posts, then a few weeks after the deadline...they mail the seeds anyway or email me and tell me they're sending the seeds anyway. In otherwords, they're deliberately disregarding what I told them. Very passive aggressive if you ask me. In any event, I'm not holding up the swap for a few unresponsive people and wanted to post notice that their envelopes will be returned to them....so hopefully I don't see this happening again.

I agree, Heather. You do us all a tremendous service with your many efforts. Got to draw the line somewhere, and I appreciate that you do not let them spoil it for the rest of us.

Hi folks,
Last chance to add to your wish list. If there any other specific varieties you want me to add to your list, please let me know no later than Nov 11th.

Specifically requested varieties are filled first. So if you are hoping for a specific variety, but you only gave me general guidelines of types you're looking for, you might miss out. Don't be shy....it's easy enough for me to add to your wish list.

If I receive all of the envelopes before the deadline, I'm going to start stuffing envelopes at that point...so I need you to get your wish lists in asap please.

Thanks....Heather

P.S. If you don't have a wish list, but do keep track of what you have already, feel free to email me your "have" list for me to cross reference.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update.....I'm still waiting on a few envelopes (not many) and will start stuffing them as soon as they are all in.

It will likely take me a couple of weeks to sort through all the wish lists, have lists and don't want lists and cross reference to the seeds. I work full time, so can only do this for a couple of hours every night.

A friendly reminder that I will be out of town on business Nov 19-21 and I will be unable to reply to email or sort seeds during that time.

I've had a few emails asking me if I would be mailing all the envelopes on November 15th. Unfortunately no, I can't even begin to sort until all the envelopes are in....so the process just gets started at that point. All the envelopes are part of one big pool.

Thanks for your patience. I know everyone is anxious.

Hi everyone,

I have one last bonus offer to put forward. I'm going to handle this one differently from the prior two offers. This bonus offer will be left open until midnight November 16th (mountain standard time).

Everyone is welcome to reply with a list of seeds they hope for in order of priority. I will be giving priority to individuals that have the least amount of seed packets already set aside for them from prior offers, and on a first come first serve basis to those individuals. In many cases, these would be individuals that were late to respond, but not necessarily.

I am not going to be telling people how many packets they already have allocated...you will find out by surprise when you get your envelopes back. I will apply these parameters from behind the scenes so please don't ask me to give you updates. I just don't have time for that.

After the deadline, seeds will just be allocated on a first come first serve basis period. You never know who's going to respond or what people want, so if you see something you like, just email me your wish list. You may or may not get something, but it is worth putting your name forward.

Once again....you need to be fast. Here's the list of seeds available (some in very limited quantities).

Beck's Snapping Okra
Calabrese Trixie F1 Hybrid
Cape Gooseberry
Cowpea Pretzel - needs a warm climate
Eggplant Goyo Kumba
Eggplant Slim Jim
Eggplant Snowy
Orange Cosmos
Sprouting Broccoli
Sprouting Radish
Tomatillo Green
Watermelon Early Canada

Thanks.....Heather

When I am ready to start mailing envelopes back, it will be gradual and I will post here to keep you updated on what envelopes have been mailed back.

WOW is right! I got mine yesterday. What a return on investment! "15 packets sent [+9 bonus], 42 packets received" - all different. Thanks to all the bonus senders, especially smokemaster who was incredibly generous. Hit most of my 15 requests, too (missed Douglah, Bih Jolokia, Aji Dulce, Cili Goronong, and Billy Biker).

I especially enjoyed the picture illustrating the baglet of Peter Pepper. :D

Heather, I think a couple of these are tomatoes. San Marzano I requested. Seek-No-Further Love Apple and Absinthe tomato too?

It's hard to imagine the amount of work involved in pulling this off. Just reading the labels could make a guy cross-eyed. Thank you so much for your dedication.

cziga - can you please contact me. Have tried to reach you by email but am posting here in case you didn't get the email. Your envelope was returned to me with a postal sticker saying "moved/unknown". I used the mailing label you provided.

Heather,
Thank you so much for all your hard work for running this and organizing everything. I received my envelope today! I love the large variety I received. I even had quite a few wishes fulfilled too. I think that I will have to dig up the rest of my backyard to grow everything out, as well as use a bunch of 5 gallon buckets. Thanks again to everyone and their generosity!

I propose that we award Heather the honorary GardenWeb user ID 'theSeedFairy'. Well deserved.

I received an amazing variety of seeds yesterday, many that I have never grown and some I've never even heard of before. Thanks to everyone.

As for Heather, I think "Seed Fairy" is a little too tame. How about "Patron Saint Heather", or maybe "The Tomato/Pepper Goddess". What more can I say?

Something else that is really cool about Heather's swap (and the other round-robins) is that when I'm reading the threads on GW I recognize many names, esp. those who have been around a few years and/or sent me seeds. When I have grown someone's plants, I feel some kind of connection with them. (Hi, Janine!)

Some old salts like Smokemaster put their names on every packet they send out. I'm realizing how much I appreciate that, and I'm gonna start doing it. Hope others will too - it makes this chili addiction even more fun.

Happy holidays to all. Rick

Greetings Heather,

My WONDERFUL pacage of seeds arrived on Sat (22nd), and again it's an AMAZING variety of seeds. Quite a number of my wants have been fulfilled as well as new varieties I hadn't listed as a want, but somehow you knew I would like them!! 'Seed Fairy', 'Patron Saint Heather', or 'The Tomato/Pepper Goddess' you're GREAT.

Thanks again for making the selection of what to grow this coming season bigger than ever.

Sandy
