NEW: Incredible Edibles Totally Tomatoes Swap
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!
*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 -
follow-ups should come to me email, but please PM me if I don't respond to your post.
