wow! I received my package today and am loving it!

I do have a question though. I have a packet of pepper seeds that I can't read the name of. the description reads: like a red banana leg long (unk word) (unk word) beautiful. anyone know what it might be?

thanks Acres for a great job!

Tracy, I got my seeds today!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! :D I am very happy with the seeds I got back. :) I can't believe I'm the first person to buy your soaps. They smell wonderful! I will let you know what I think as soon as I get to use each of them all. The gardeners soap is fantastic! I keep my nails long and usually have to cut them all off after a day out digging in the dirt. The other day when I was working in the garden I had on gloves but still seemed to manage to get the dark dirty color under my nails, this time I didn't have to cut them off the gardeners soap got all the stain from under my nails!!! I was ecstatic! :D Oh and they didn't dry out either, you are sitting on a gold mine girlfriend!!! :D

So glad every one is getting there mailers in a timely matter. I just did my best with what I had and i am truely glad you are all happy with your selection :) I have another idea for a swap but hubby says no swaps for a little bit. durn hubby.

Karen noo thats not it Katrina noo thats not it either hmmm KATHY thats its LOL I actually have my soap in a local store but you are in fact the first person to order it online. Way to go YOU. The gardening soap started it all for me. I love to garden and grow my tomatoes and hate having green hands. So I fixed it and came up with a way to make soap that took that away.

sassy -- glad you liked those. yummy none eggplant foods.

Well Im off to make candles

Boo-- Love your new word that is fabulous and if you need help with any info on tomatoes I have a lot defined.

Toni -- Glad you think there GREATTTTTTTTTTT ( sorry could not help it)

Kathy -- you sure are a funny lady and I just had to bug you about it because that is just me.

Fran -- Wow you did not have to post goodness your soo freaking busy go get a glass of wine and jump in a hot tup and forget about seed for about a week and don't for get to breath
I'm sort of in one of those odd moods the new shop I went into to see if they wanted to display my bath products wants me to change everything about my product and that is not what I am going to do. GRRR some people LOL I am completely up for constructive criticism but goodness every thing cant be wrong with it. But hey that is just one person and one shop and she did not wear enough purple any who to carry my products LOL

Any who I think I will list ebay stuff today and I'm soo totally glad every one is happy if any of you have any questions about seed please feel free to ask.

Dirt_ I was looking at your soaps online, too and could not find $$ info for the gardeners soap. If you would be so kind to either post the info or email me (post, I asked and others may be interested too LOL :)) I am interested in it if I can fit in the budget. Although, my daughter laughed at me lat night. We were in Lowes who has had alarge display (just one) out with seeds for several weeks now. We walked by and were looking at the newly put out tubers, bulbs, rhizomes and such and lo andbehold they put up two more stand alone vege and flower displays and another flower one. I realize many will be the same, just diff. brands, but I did see several that I am going back for Sat. She just laughed b/c I was there doing the happy dance. (She is in fourth grade and mom doing the happy dance was not exactly cool). She is into the dahlia's now that she saw the pkg. for the dinnerplates. So, another project on our list of mother/daughte proj's is to grow several of these togethor. FUNFUN FUN

I just though I would let people know that the soaps are crazy INexpensive. I think they are great and I am anxious to try it. For the price, I think they will be excellent little gifts to have on hand, b/c you really can't get gifts for the price. Great Job Tracy.

AND they come all wrapped up with a bow and label!!! :D I have checked others homemade soaps, and they are to me outrageously priced. These are not and they are just as nice.

I got mine the other day too. I was very happy with them, especially the tomatoes. I had over 60 varieties before the swap, but amazingly only recieved 2 or 3 of the ones I already had (probably because I didnt mention having them LOL)... I was impressed!
