NEW: Christy's TotallyTasty Heirloom Tomato Swap!
Welcome to Christy's 2nd Totally Tasty Heirloom Tomato Swap! Sign ups will remain open, as long as your seeds can be sent in by February 8th. All seeds to be received by February 8th.
What? I'm not Christy? Yes, I know that! Christy's computer is down. She has a very pokey stand alone that is working so she can receive emails. With other things the computer is painfully slow. So until her new computer gets replaced, I'm helping out!
So welcome to Christy's Incredible Edibles Heirlooms 2nd swap, "Totally Tasty Tomatoes" Swap! All are welcome! Oldies and Newbies!
Of course, this is a swap of tomato seeds only. Please only send tomato seeds that are heirlooms and/or OP's, non-hybrids.
This will be a mass swap, where everyone will send in all their seeds to Christy, then she will sort, and then resend.
Please send your seeds in a BUBBLE MAILER! You do not need to send an extra envelope. We will reuse the envelope that you sent your seeds in, which will save you time and money!
In the envelope, please include:
1. Your seeds of course
2. A label with your address on it for me to put on your envelope
3. Enough postage to get your package back to you.
4. 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 back. THERE ARE NO GARANTEES THAT YOU WILL RECIEVE ALL YOUR REQUESTS! Although, we will work hard to give you what we can. It all depends on what is sent in.
~Instead of swapping whole packets, please send in smaller amounts of 12-15 seeds each packet, so there will be a bigger and better selection of seeds to send out to you all.
Please divide them up into packets of 12-15.
12-15 seeds will count as one trade each! However, some seeds are better than no seeds, so if you have only 4 or 5 seeds of something, you can send them in too.
Also, feel free to add any bulk seed or any seed that would be considered extras to donate to the swap. Just mark which ones are extras to go into the pot.
~ Please send seeds that have an expiration within the years of 2009 or 2010.
~ On your packet labels, please include the following info:
1. Tomato Variety Name
2. Whether they are commercial(company name)or if they were hand collected!!!!!
3. Your GW Name (This will help me not too send you back your own seeds!)
~ We will try to award seeds fairly. The more variety you send, the more variety you will get back. The more interesting your seeds are, the more interesting seeds we will try to get back to you if we can.
Multiple packs of the same variety are ok to send in to a certain extent. If you send us 20 packs of the same one tomato, you might get back some doubles too. We will do our best to not do so. Again, it depends on what is sent in.
~ Seeds need to be received by February 8th.
That should give us all plenty of time to get organized and get the seeds in the mail.
We will send out your seeds by the end of February. If we receive seeds earlier or on time, we may be able to get them out sooner than that.
~If you would like to send in a few extra envelopes/labels to help us in the redistributing process, feel free to do so. This is not important, we seem to be well stocked, but if you do send some in, we promise to send you a little something extra!
This was a really fun swap last year. Lots of people were very happy with the tomato seeds they received. Please come and join in the fun! Any questions, just ask!
Thanks everybody! Lets have some fun!
Becky (for Christy!)
