new: acres tomato & pepper only swap

purpleacres(Upper Northern California)January 25, 2009

Howdee,

Spaghetti, Salsa, tomato sauce, chilli, fried green tomatoes, and so much more. I have even seen recipes of cookies and of breads with tomatoes and peppers in them. There are so many varieties of tomatoes and peppers they so deserve there own swap.

This Swap will be only for TOMATOES and PEPPERS only.

Please add one of your favorite tomato or pepper recipes with your mailer.

This swap must receive 10 sign ups before it will be a go.

NOW THE RULES

Tomato or pepper seeds only.

All seeds must be clearly marked and packed correctly. The more info the better.

All seed packages should contain at least 10 seeds.

You will receive at least the amount of packages you send in most likely more..

You must send a wish list if your except to receive certain seeds back.

You must attach the correct amount of postage to the self addressed stamped bubble mailer or address labels and stamps to get the mailer back to you.

Must use bubble mailer. SEEDS CRUSH

You must send your full name on the mailer , mailing address, garden web name and email address on a card or added to your lists. This helps me a lot. Emailing it too me works as well

A list of seeds you sent is recommenced. This helps so you donÂt get your own seeds back..

One person must not send in more than 2 copies of one certain seed.

One person must not send in more than 50 seed packages.

No side trades will be accepted.

all mailers are due at my house by February21st . Packages will be filled in order of arrival.

All mailers will leave my house headed back to you by March 7th

Sorry for all the rules it just makes a better and more organized swap and a lot easier if rules are involved. With only my self doing the swap as much information I can get is the best.

Acres

Please post here if interested and I will email you my postal address if we get 10 people.

We have three maybes please post or email if still interested Kamiljablo, NCgardengirl and the hills.

please note: That if this swap goes and my SQUASH IT UP SWAP goes I will allow them to be shipped in the same mailer. Please know they should be packaged seperatly because they are two completly different swaps.

Howdee

THIS SWAP IS A GO.

Please note that I have no problems having both swaps being shipped in same mailer. Just seperate each swap with bag. so if you send in seeds for both swaps you should send in two wish lists and two seed lists. One for each swap Example one seed list and one wish list for tomato pepper swap and one wish list and one seed list for squash it up swap.

SORRY I dont wish to bump up the amount of single varities sent in. The max 2 packs per variety will help so no one get too many duplicates.

If you have any question please post here so I can keep it straight.

This swap will have a max person sign up of 25 people.

easttexasgardener you need to fix your garden web and allow members to contact you :-) so I can send you info for this swap. You are #25 so you are the last one and this swap is closed. Now if you and Rosieo do not contact me there are still two spots open.

so the people in this swap are listed below. The sooner all mailers are in the sooner I can get them out to you. You have until the 14th of Feb. to get them to me BUT if you send them earlier you will get them earlier.

howdee there

This swap is officially closed. Sorry I set my mark at 25 people so I was not whelmed with seeds. There are still a few spots in my Squash it swap if interested.

Opie -- mailers are due the 21st. I think I have the 14th on my brain because that is the day I posted that my acres edible swap mailers will be returned.

EastTexasgardener -- thanks for fixing that members on GW can contact you. It makes it soo much easier for us hosts. Well its easier for me :-)

Gardenmom2-- still room in my Squash it swap :-)

Ah! Dumb Squirrels dumped my winter sowing containers over! Jeese now I gotta start from scratch! Do we have to include a recipe? Cause in my family we never cook tomatoes we eat them raw, and for peppers we only use them in salads. Hopefully I want to maybe try a salsa or maybe a tomato sauce this year! I cant wait to get some kewl tomatoes and peppers!Hmmm can I ask a question? Just for kicks whats your favorite tomato and pepper and why?

Mine is a Pink Oxheart Tomato mainly because I love the texture and its the best for sandwhiches! As for peppers I dont have a favorite....

Kamil, you can do a search on google for tomato or tomato/pepper recipes. See which ones sound good and include one of them. We normally eat tomatoes raw too, but I also like to use fresh tomatoes instead of canned when I have them growing, for sauces and mixed up heated veggies. There are a number of rice dishes and also simple UNCOOKED salads etc recipes you can use tomatoes and peppers in.

Salsa recipes would work. There's a bunch of them online or something you're thinking of doing :) hope it helps. Nothing said it had to be cooked

LOL wow Joy I promise I am not blonde.

That does leave room for one more. I would contact Gardenmom2 but She does not have an email attached to her garden web.

Soo there is room for one more or two more if you really want in.

My favorite tomato is prolly chico lll paste becasue its soo prolific and I make tons of sauce and can alot. For eatimg I like Pale perfect purple or black prince.

Also a recipe is not a HAVE TO thing I just thought it might make it fun.

I think I should have close to the limit on this one. I have 26 or so so far, but as soon as my tomato swap comes in (shouldnt be too much longer, I hope it gets here in time), I should have more. I'll be receiving 20-some packets from that, and since the seed requirements were 12-15 seeds, and I only want 2-3 of each, I should have more for this swap.

P.s. if anyone has any peter pepper, I would love some of those.

Dirtdiggin- Got your mailer Everything is totally the way I wanted it to be set up thanks, that makes my job a lot easier. Great recipes too!

Yotetrapper - Great you almost have the limit :) more to choose from for us all.

easttexasgardener - Lovely you sent early you will have a beter selection to choose from.

Yep thats right all my swaps are a first come first serve (as listed in the rules) you may not get all that is on your wish list. Of corse you will get a few BUT those who send in early get a better selection so get those mailers filled and ship them out to get the BEST selection.

if you have any questions please ask. :-)
