NEW: Incredible Edibles Totally Tomatoes Swap

austinnhanasmom(5 CO)January 9, 2012

NEW: Incredible Edibles Totally Tomatoes February Sign Up

Once 10 swappers sign up, we'll have a swap!

Welcome to the Totally Tomatoes Swap! This is my second year hosting and I hope to build on the successes and improve on the challenges. If you have suggestions, please let me know.

All are welcome! Oldies and Newbies!

RULES:

*Sign up deadline is February 10th.

*Seeds must be received by February 25th.

*Of course, this is a swap of tomato seeds only. NO first generation crosses or hybrids.

If you have a crossed or breeded variety that is stable, in your opinion, bring it on - but clearly mark please!

To prevent multiple submissions of the same varieties, I have a few new rules.

*Please email me a list of varieties that you wish to submit and allow me to select your submission from your list. This should prevent an excess of "roma", "red beefsteak" or "yellow pear" submissions. I know people who love those varieties, but they did not participate in this swap last year ;-)

IF we have swapped before (and I suspect that you are a tomato freak), I may select the less common varieties from your list.

*A minimum of 10 seeds per packet.

*A maximum of 5 packets per variety.

*A maximum of 30 packets per swapper.

*This will be a mass swap, where everyone will send their seeds to me and I will sort and then resend.

*Please send your seeds in a BUBBLE MAILER! You do not need to send an extra envelope. I will reuse the envelope that you sent your seeds in!

*In the envelope, please include:

1. Your seeds of course

2. A label with your address on it for me to put onto your return envelope

3. Enough postage, or cash, to get your package back to you. If you send extra, I'll return the excess.

*EMAIL, to me, a list of all the seeds you are GIVING. You may also send a list of some of your wants or preference of types of tomato seeds you would like returned. THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR REQUESTS! Although, I will work hard to give you what I can. The success of this swap depends on what is submitted by the swappers.

*Please send seeds that are no more then 3 years old.

*On your packet labels, please include the following info:

1. Tomato Variety Name

2. Whether they are commercial or if they were hand collected

3. Your GW Name (So you do not receive your own seeds!)

~ I will try to divvy up seeds fairly. The more variety you send, the more variety you will get back. The more interesting your seeds are, the more interesting the seeds returned, if possible.

~ Returned seeds will be mailed February 28th.

Please come and join in the fun!

Any questions, just ask!

Happy Gardening -

Deb (austinnhanasmom)

follow-ups should come to me email, but please PM me if I don't respond to your post.

Hi Deb!

Honestly, I had such a crummy tomato year last year, that I don't have a whole lot to offer. I will email you a list of what I have, and you can let me know if any of them are worth sending in.

BTW, there's no minimum number of packets to join is there?

Ok, I'm in & really, really want someone to send in their Amish Paste & Stupice seeds so I can receive them to try in my cool summer climate where tomatoes have a rough go from the start of summer all through our variable temps. Flavor is suppose to be fantastic despite our 65-75 degree highs with occasional heat waves (western WA style in the 90s).

I will send my list to you Debbie!

My goal is to limit certain varieties (unless there is a large demand on wish lists) to only a few submissions and if you wait to email your list, those varieties may be already spoken for - make sense?

The packages received so far have a great selection of varieties - I'd share but part of the enjoyment is receiving an unknown envie in March ;-)

And I know that the future packages will be awesome too!

Do NOT set your 2012 grow lists in stone - until you get your returned envie!

If you need your envie back sooner, let me know! I totally get it...

I am, UNFORTUNATELY, going to have to back out of the swap.. I have some medical issues with my son that need my full attention right now. I'll definitely be back next year for sure!

No envies today...but there was another hostage note.

This one is higher, so I am thinking the envie got over 3/4" thick. Once the envie gets too thick, the PO jumps it into package rates. And it's easy to over-thicken a small envie.

Ridiculous, I know.

But something for all seed swappers to keep in mind for future trades. As they are losing $$ hand over fist, the PO seems to find any way to charge more for services.

As much as I hate to, I'm going to have to withdraw myself from this swap. I am just way too busy right now to be swapping. I apologize for the inconvienence.

Robert - I, for one, COMPLETELY understand! Happy Gardening to you!

Going to start physically sorting today; still hoping to return envies in the Tuesday (PM) mail - so essentially Wednesday AM mail.

I have been creating a "have" and "wish" spreadsheet and am hoping they match!

If you read this and have not yet shared what you would like returned, shoot me an email! And my fingers are crossed that I have captured all of the shared wishes in my spreadsheet.

Deb,
When my son took my package to the post office to double check my postage I'd put on the worker said $.89 more because I had written to not go through the roller or machine or something like that. She said if you do that it goes parcel, not envelope. I can't recall the total I had on there, but that should have been enough postage! It wasn't 3/4" thick. I taped the packets in place on paper to be sure no shifting.

I'm surprised that it's different every time a different worker checks it.

Corrine1 - yours was perfect ;-)

I agree that the PO is very inconsistent with pricing.

I know WAY more about this pricing then one should :-) (seed whore here)

The bubble envies cannot fit through the sorter machines, so hopefully the employees never attempt it.

Perhaps most envies thicker then 1/4" fail to fit through, so they are hand stamped (?); and jump to the "large" envie pricing. Bubble envies are at least 1/4" when empty and for sure jump into the large envie pricing.

Once the bubble envelope gets to be more then 3/4" thick, they jump into the parcel package pricing. Envies too small (!!) or too large also fall into this category. AND, if the length x width ratio is off, they fall into this category also. I have taken an "off ratio" envie into my PO, after more postage was requested (before the hostage notes started), and been told that the envie is ok - no extra postage needed.

It is cheaper to buy/use a say 8x10 bubble envie and cut it into smaller envies, and this is when the ratio can be off.

Although I cannot speak for the PO, I've traded enough times to know the issues that can arise - experienced them all!

It is VERY inconsistent.

I noticed, especially with the Canadian Post envies, that some hand stampers miss the stamps all together. For those in the USA, I will reuse/resend, and not waste/use another stamp. For the Canadian swappers, I'll try to remove the stamps so they can be reused in Canada.

I hope mine isnt the one with postage due. I also tape my little packets down so they dont bunch up and make a thick area. I've noticed a template that the post office uses to make sure its under the 3/4 inch thickness. I have made one for myself to use at home...just so I can check it before getting to the PO and getting a suprise.
Please let me know if you had to pay hostage money for my envie and I'll send you the cost.

OK - I will begin returning to you ASAP and will list the envies in order of mailing under and UPDATE thread.

Please post when you receive your new seeds.

Last year, someone's envie label was removed and ended up returned to me. I'll insure that they are securely fastened before leaving me this year.

THANKS all!
