NEW: Incredible Edibles Spring Fling Salad Swap

julia42(9a)January 31, 2013

Hi everybody! It's time for the Incredible Edibles Spring Fling Salad Swap!
Here are the rules:

* The swap is for any seeds that would produce a salad ingredient. I realize people put all kinds of things in their salads, but I would think we'd want to focus on lots of greens, carrots, radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet peppers... I'd kind of prefer to avoid the less traditional salad ingredients like broccoli, squash, corn, etc. However, I'm flexible, so email me if you have something "less traditional" you'd like to include.

* Please sign up by February 20, and have your seeds to me by February 27.

* Seeds should be no older than 2010.

* Seed packets should be labeled with the year harvested or purchased and with your Gardenweb name, so I don't accidentally send any of your seeds back to you.

* Since this swap may include a wide variety of seed types, I'm not going to set a specific minimum of seeds per packet. Use your best judgement and try to include about the number of seeds per packet you would want to receive.

* Please include no more than 3 bags per variety and no more than 30 bags total. Anything beyond that will be considered extras. If you have something extremely rare or in high demand, email me and I might make an exception to the 3 bag rule.

* And last but not least, please use a bubble envelope and include a return address label, and enough postage for the return trip. It seems like bubble envelopes are requiring five first class stamps these days. I'll resuse your bubble envelope, so no need to send another.

Please email me if you'd like to join and I'll send you my address to mail your seeds. It would be great if you could send me your seed list and wish list via email so I can plan my sorting ahead of time.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have and let me know if you think I've forgotten anything important!
I'm looking forward to a fun swap!

Last year was the first time I planted a salad square. I put three kinds of leaf lettuce in an empty dried parsley shaker container. I used the shaker like I would a salt shaker inside the square. Next I sprinkled radish seeds and carrots (no carrots in the square this year). I raked the seeds into the soil. Last I stuck onion sets into the square. I planted spinach and carrots separately. I pickled sweet cherry peppers. I made four kinds of cucumbers and pizza sauce, salsa, and other things from tomatoes. Join the swap and eat healthy.

I would think an awful lot could fall in the "greens" category, other than lettuce. Here are some that come to mind:

Spinach
Kale
Endive
Radicchio
Cress
Arugula
Salad Burnet
Sorrel
Orach
Swiss Chard
Mizuna
Purslane

I'm sure there's more, too. If there's something in particular you're wondering about, let me know. I would think just about anything you eat as a green would be a salad ingredient...

Thanks!

Question-are beets and cabbage considered "less traditional" salad ingredients? I don't actually have any to send, I'm just wondering if I should bother to put them on my wish list.

Sorry to be so full of questions, but I was about to pack everything up to send and I read the recommendation for 5 FC stamps for a bubble mailer. My 5x7 bubble envelope all packed up weighs no more than 2 oz. and according to the USPS website the postage is more like 3 FC stamps, but now I'm worried about it being insufficient. Can folks give me an idea why it might be 5 vs. 3 that I'm probably missing (envelope size or something?)

Thanks! I'd hate to delay the swap due to inadequate postage to or from but I loathe having to go to the PO so I'd like to figure out the correct postage from home and be done with it.

Hi happygardener23!

So, I'd probably say that beets and cabbage fall into the "less traditional" category and wouldn't include them in a salad swap. However, you never really know what people are going to send in, so include them on your wish list if you'd like them. At the very least, I think I might have some beet seeds in my stash that I should part with - I haven't had good luck with beets in my soil and am ready to throw in the towel with that crop...

As far as the postage goes... There's been a whole lot of discussion on the round robin forums about how much postage a bubble mailer needs, and the conclusion seems to be that it varies from post office to post office (which is unfortunate). I think some POs count bubble mailers as envelopes (lower postage) and some as packages (higher postage). Honestly, I think even if you went to your post office to check, it might not be the same at mine. If you want to include less postage you can - it's up to you - but there's a possibility of trouble. That said, my usual MO is to stamp envies and drop them in a box for pick-up (unless people request confirmations), so if I use your address as both the address and return address theoretically it should get to you even if there's postage due... Theoretically.

Here's a long discussion of the issues if you need some reading material:

Here is a link that might be useful: Tomato Swap 2012 with postage discussion.

That's a nice idea! What's your favorite? It's kind of hard to pick, but it seems like my favorite is always the salad from the season that's not quite here yet... Right now I'm looking forward to :

1 sliced cucumber
3 sliced tomatoes
chopped fresh basil
fresh goat cheese
salt
squeeze of lemon

However, what I'm currently eating is this type of salad (which is really good, too):

Fresh picked lettuce
Chickweed
topped with a sliced radish
shredded carrots
4 sliced strawberries
fresh goat cheese
pecans
homemade grapefruit/vanilla dressing

Yum! I'll be missing the lettuce salads later on while I'm eating my cucumber/tomato salads. The grass is always greener, right?

I grow about 5-10 varieties of lettuce every year. My new favorites this year are "Grandpa Admire's" and "Crisp Mint", which really takes the warmer days around here well.

My favorite.
MANDARIN ORANGE AND ALMOND SALAD
1/2 c. chopped Almonds, toasted with 1 Tbsp Sugar *
6-8 c. Romaine Lettuce or Lettuce of choice
1/2 cup sliced Celery
2-4 sliced Green Onions
1 lg can Mandarin Oranges, drained
DRESSING: Shake in a jar
1/3 c. Vegetable Oil
3 Tbsp. Sweetener of choice
1/4 c. chopped Parsley
3 Tbsp. Vinegar
1/2 tsp. Salt
Dash of Back Pepper
Toss the dressing and salad just before serving. Sprinkle with toasted almonds.
* Carefully toast almonds in a skillet til golden. With wooden spoon, carefully spread out on foil to cool. Break apart when cooled.
I take this sweet and nutty salad to parties and it's always a hit. I always keep a can or two of mandarin oranges in my pantry. Sometimes I add thinly sliced red onions instead of scallions. For an asian twist I substitute chow mein noodles, peanuts, red pepper, sesame seeds and grilled chicken. You can add a teaspoon of peanut butter and soy or fish sauce to the dressing and omit the salt. I wish I were having this for lunch today. But alas, I'll probably make a PB&J sandwich.

Hi Pinkiris,

I thought I already had posted a reply to you but now it isn't here - strange. I wanted to ask you if you included a wish list in your package. If so, that should be fine - I don't need it in email form. However, if you didn't include one in the package, let me know and I'll email you from my regular email so you can send a reply with your wish list in it.

Thanks!

I received my package today. Wow, I was blown away by the variety and generosity of everyone. This was my year swapping non-tomato group swaps, and the first package that I've received. I had no idea what to expect. Seeing how generous everyone was I wish that I had known to be a bit more heavy-handed when shaking out my seed packages. Please forgive me, I'll know better next time. I am so excited to look up all of the plants that I received. Thank you all again and a very special thank you to Julia for all of your work.

I'm a bit late to post, but I did receive my seeds. Thank you to all participants as I now have a few unknown-to-me varieties to plant for my household! This was the 2nd seed swap I've ever participated in and I'm hooked (and more aware of how everything works). Thank you to our gracious hostess as well!

Hi Monica,

I mailed your package out on March 2, which would have been a full week ago... Boy, I hope it gets to you - I haven't had a package get lost in the mail before. :(

I'm sorry - give it a little longer to see if it shows up. Maybe I can pull some seed together for you if it doesn't...

Julia,

I received my seeds today. I could not be happier with the selections, the variety, and the number of seeds. Not sure why it was delayed, but I'm very grateful they've arrived.

Thank you,

Monica a.k.a. BlindingBrown

Hi Monica! I'm so happy your seeds showed up! I was just thinking I show go through my stash today to see how many extra packets I could pull out for you if they never made it. I'm really glad you liked the variety, too.

There's still a few people I haven't heard from. I hope everyone else has received their seeds too...

Thanks,
Julia
