NEW: Acres Edible 20 swap

purpleacres(Upper Northern California)January 28, 2007

Howdee,

It's time for me to do a swap . I have put on several swaps In the past with over 40 people participating each time. I remember one swap I went through over 1500 seed packages. Those were the days haha. Well I want this swap to be a smaller swap. Lets say 20 people max.

Please post here or email me at purpleacres@msn.com for more info

Basic rules for this swap

All seeds must be eddible (typical veggies and fruit found in standard veggie garden)

each pack must be enough to try that certain variety.

Must send enough postage to get mailer back to you.

No more than 20 seed packs send with no more than 3 copies.

Seeds must be at my house by Febuary 14 and will be returned no later than febuary 24

And least of all HAVE FUN

Every one will receive freebies and a gift from host

REMEMBER THIS IS FOR THE FIRST 20 PEOPLE ONLY

Thanks purpleacres

I sent in 14 packs, but with the President's Day holiday, my seeds sat in the mailbox all weekend ;( They went out Tuesday so they should be there anytime.

That was fast! I received my packet in this morning's mail. Thanks, everybody, for sharing your seeds with me. I am excited about some new varieties to try -- melons, tomatoes, cucumbers. I love winter squash, so can anybody give me a hint about the seeds labeled "Mystery Winter Squash"?

Thanks again, Acres, for another great swap, well-organized and fun.

Glad you received your mailer so fast PatRob. Those Mystery winter squash is from me they are my cration I have been playing with for the last few years. They are pretty sweet and i use them incase of pumpkin in pies very yummy. Typically about 90 day and about 6 pounds. Ranging in all sorts of colors striped usually. Let me know how they do if ya grow them.

Thanks, Acres, I will grow the "mystery" squash and let you know how it does in the middle of Texas. I have a jungle of winter squashes and pumpkins every year and share with family and friends and sometimes perfect strangers if they stop long enough. lol Another good squash is always welcome! Sounds pretty too.
