Are you hosting both of the february ones Kathy? I'll join this too! I figure these next months are going to be when I need seeds most, so might as well have fun collecting them now!(or that is atleast the excuse I am telling myself to make myself feel good about joining both at the same time!)

I've been looking at my list of veggie seeds, and even though I don't have any with the word Heart or Cupid in the name, I do have quite a few red veggies.

So sign me up!!!

Kathy, maybe the name thing is throwing them off like it did me at first? For those who don't have anything with Love, Heart, or Cupid in the name, here are some other suggestions:

Red peppers
Red tomatoes, or oxHEART tomatoes
Scarlet runner beans
Red noodle beans
Beats
Red lettuce
Red carrots
Red onions
Red potatoes
Red amaranth
Red basil
Strawberry popcorn
Strawberries

... and then there's white cucumbers, white eggplant, white sweet corn, parsnips, and white pumpkins.

Now I know you lurkers have some of these in your seedbox!

Come on ... you know you want to join!!!

also, anything red, white, or pink,,,,,

something with the word sweet or sweetie for your "sweetheart"

something that sounds romantic, like "midnight ruffles" lettuce, oh la la!

Paris Island Lettuce, Paris, the city for lovers,

if you use your imagination, it is really easy to find seeds to fit the theme! Christy

Well yes, now that you, Bonnie and Christy put it this way I could see myself joining...hehe. I didn't/don't have any edibles that say Love, Cupid, Valentine, or Heart in it's name so I thought I better not join I have no theme veggies...BUT I DO have white ones...lol and RED ones and maybe even PINK ones...hehe. NOW, I am concerned about whehter or not these are heirloom veggies....hehe
I KNOW I KNOW, I am making it complicated...yeap that's me alrighty! Complicated.

OK IF I join I would ask whom ever my parnter is to not send me anything other then seeds. I feel bad becasue I send seeds and then I get a box with other stuff in it...so, I would just request seeds and nothing more, not that I don't like other stuff, I just can't afford to send a lot all the time. oKey, DoKeY?

I think you also got it in my drink, now I need to go get a fresh on, oh well. The ice had melted anyway.

OK, OK, I'm am going to the store today I will look to see what goodies I can seek there. If I find something I can do for this, I will join for sure.

Umm, are these just for edibles or can it be flowers too?

I joined the other one but I am certainly ready for this one too.....Hooray for the fun....Hmmmm, if I run out of the right kind of swaps maybe I can just rename some of those unknown seeds I have and send them; I would use appropriate names, something like "Maybe these are your Heart's Desire", "Cupid Dropped These" or "Red and White or Blue and Green, here are seeds I've Never Seen"....Wow! Just imagine the surprise and delight on my partner's face when they pull these out of the box..........Hello to everyone.....JD

ooooh, do you think we can get our partners for the cupid and sunny swap a few days early? Like maybe on the weekend? I really really want to put an order in but would like to know who my partners are first. Oh pretty please???????
Sorry if I sound like a pain! Since this is the busiest time of the year for seed shipping, I wanted to get the orders out asap. I would really like for my partner to get their box BEFORE Valentine's Day, and thought the extra days made up waiting here for partners might help out a bit if we get our partners a few days early.

I promise I won't beg anymore!Just this once? If everyone agrees, Christy

Hi Patti!

Kathy will give us each a partner. And you and your partner send seeds and swap to each other only. It is not like the tomato swap where you need to send your seeds to a host.

Actually, this is how we usually do swaps here at IE, with partners. The tomato swap was an exception.
It is really fun swapping with a partner!

Hope this helps! Happy you joined! Christy
