Okay, Anyone else for the game?

We have Canyonwind, poisondart and jaynine so far.

I'll be thinking about who will be who while I fold this ton of laundry! I swear my son takes it in and charges for my services...lol

I didn't go to the mailbox yet but I got a delivery from the mailman so I am assuming no seeds today.

Oh Boy, was I wrong. I decided to check the mailbox after dinner last night and it was stuffed with bubble envelopes.

I received seeds from

Jaynine

poisondartfrog
zoemom
fresc1000
claylady

crystalline
panhandle

billings

lovesblooms and blunderbee, are you still in????

I have not heard anything from the other people that had originally signed up, I'm assuming they are not playing.

I'll be sending emails out today to those of you playing the game. Remember, each player will post one hint per star, per day.

An example posting:
Alana- your clue here
Jaynine- your clue here
Annie- your clue here

These are hard not to give away immediately with obvious clues-fun game!

Jaynine, you are among the top ten earning actresses currently.

Annie, you were among the top ten earning actresses in the previous decade.

I'm going to have to pull out :( We've been redoing our floors and our house is a disaster zone. I kept thinking we'd get done and I'd have a chance to get my seeds together... but it turns out tiling takes FOREVER. I haven't had a moment to sort through things yet.

So sorry and so sad! Next year for sure though,

I'll email you 3 in the am, let's try this again!

Jaynine, I will try and find something that you don't have as a prize. Did you see anything on the swallowtail order I posted in swap thread 2, those are the newest seeds.

Janine, I do still have them, they are NOT commercial. I collected them from the local nursery(with permission) in June of 2012. Do you still want them? I have 10 seeds. My little friend that used to work there wasn't there last year...bummer! He would actually point out seeds that were ready for harvesting!

I have sent emails with new names, let's try again!

Gardenerz, I'll watch for your seeds.

Lovesblooms, Have you mailed your seeds yet? If not, you have only 3 days to get them to me. I need to wrap this swap up.

Crystal in Virginia, What's your gw screen name?

Annie, I opened your package late last night, I'm going to hurt you!

Well Ladies, we once again have a winner.

Alana, did you see anything else on that list in the 1st thread that interested you? If not, I have others that I can post pack by pack (work seeds so I don't have receipt BUT I have the commercial packets of most)!!!

Maybe Alana will continue to post clues so that Annie and Jaynine can continue to play OR you two can just continue until we have a second winner. I kind of like option 2, jaynine and Annie just continue until one wins (sorry Alana but you stink...lol)

Annie, I'm sorry!

I emailed you from my phone because I was out for the afternoon. I checked my phone and see that it didn't go through. I have to tell you that I am thankful because I was using the talk feature on the phone, you know, just speak into the phone and it types for you. Well, I was frustrated with the auto correct and used a few choice words and it picked up the curse words just fine!

anyway, I'm going to start opening the rest of the envelopes and seriously sorting.

I'm waiting on two packages

Gardenerz, he emailed to join last minute but mailed his seeds already.

lovesblooms, who emailed that her seeds were mailed.

Hopefully, they will come today and I can get sorting. I have an unplanned guest coming to stay and my spare room is full of seeds!

I'll be posting more seeds daily. I'm going to be winter sowing and passing on the left over comm/non seeds.

I'm an early bird so the rules will be the same one request per person per day. If no one has requested the items from the day before, they are up for grabs by anyone.

I will offer up now:

ruella brittanica- 2 small packets of 10/12 seeds 1 packet if only 1 person requests them.

I sent the giant one, lovesblooms. You can start with a smaller pot, but if you want to maintain it indoors you will have to graduate to a very large pot as it matures.
If you don't have a pond to summer it in, you can use a pot without drainage that you can provide a muddy substrate in. Even in a pot, expect it to get 6 feet tall. In a pond 8-10 feet is reasonable, even in zone 7. One way around the eventual size of the clump could be dividing the spreading rhizomes once it is established to keep it inbounds.

I have delivery confirmations if needed.

I'll be mailing more envies this morning. I'll probably go in a few times throughout the day today.

The guy at the post office is an a$$. I went in with just 6 envies, he asked "are those the ones to weigh and then put change in before you seal". I told him yes, that it was only once a year and I would do 6/7 at a time. He told me he wanted me to go to another line and called for help!!!!!

Last call for melons and squash,dill and lavender.

Thanks Lisa and all the swappers, especially those who helped with seeds from my want list. My package arrived late yesterday and I tried to take a quick look at all the great seeds while I ate supper. Later I looked them over closely with the computer nearby to help me out with ones I didn't know. I found out Lisa put seeds in my envelope for some great plants than I didn't even know existed. Thanks for expanding my flower knowledge! I look forward to growing this season and thinking of all the gardeners who shared seeds. Thanks everyone!

Good Morning All,

I'm happy to see that some packages have made it home.

Aside from Shirley, I'm not seeing people posting about all the extras they received. I had 3 players donate commercial seeds this year and would like them to know that they made it to other players. In light of the cheating that went on this year, I want them to know they went to players and didn't pad my stash!!

Naturegirl sent in 150 packets of seeds and only got back around 85. She donated the rest!

Jaynine, donated 20/25 packets.

Sjc, sent in 7 extra veggie packets.

I don't care for my donated seed, it's part of being a good hostess BUT I do think that Jaynine, Nauturegirl and Sjc should be recognized for their donation to the swap.

So ladies, here's a big shout out of a THANK YOU FOR THE EXTRAS! most players got at least 5/6 extras, some as many as 20!

I added extras based on the postage amount they enclosed AND what I thought might be planted. I added in around $7 postage so everyone could get some extra seed to try out.

pmb- your seeds are on the way
lovesblooms-yours are too.

I'll continue to check back until I see that everyone has gotten their packages.

Happy Growing!

Alana, I know I told you your stamps didn't cancel but when I went to mail your package I was told that the stamps on the envy were only .49. There were 2 that I thought were $1 and then a regular looking stamp. The guy at the desk said they were only .49 each. I guess your package came to me for under 1.50. Anyway, I added what he said was needed and returned the rest to you.

Crystalline, your package traveled to me for free but I had to use some of your stamps because your package was heavier going home.

Jaynine, I found the missing stamps, they were in the envelope you sent them in, on my visor right were I left them!

Yes indeed, thanks to those that sent extras! I have already sown at least half of the seeds I received and will do a few more before I finish for the season.

Lisa, the stamps weren't canceled on the return trip either.

Alana, I thought I was done for the season too, until I got my package. Most of mine were annuals, but I was able to do 6 more WS jugs this morning with seeds from this swap. I got more Lantana seeds and they are soaking as we speak! I'm planning on sowing Baby's Breath, from this swap, and Dahlberg Daisies inside on the heat mats today too.

AND!! The Begonias and Lantana sprouts are doing very well from their potting up last weekend! I'm going to have enough Begonias to do at least 8 hanging baskets! I am thrilled!

Lisa, many thanks again for a great swap!
Shirley!

I did receive the extra seeds in a separate baggie, and
I have started one so far, as soon as I find some more
seed flats I will start more. Should be today. Thank you
naturegirl, sjc, and jaynine for the extra seeds I believe
this will be my biggest flower garden to date if everything
goes well. Thanks everyone for making this possible.

Yes, thank you for the extra veggie/melon seeds. I received quite a few interesting varieties and can't wait to start them!
Soon we'll all be walking around our gardens~wearing shorts and flip flops, cursing weeds and wondering what we're going to do with all that zucchini.
Bring it on.

I did receive extra veggie/melon seeds as well. Thank you Naturegirl, Jaynine & Sjc for the extras!

Lisa, I did notice the envelope was heavy when I received it and guessed that they must have contain the beans/peas which I love to have. Thanks again for hosting!

Just seeing these new threads Lisa, have been relying on email and never saw your replies until today :-0. Apologies for no seed list, bad newbie mistake!

In one msg 'lean' was listed as seeds sent...was that supposed to be Leeann? Hubbs checked the P.O. box last Friday but nothing then. Can have him check again tomorrow if so. Thanks so much for the replies and hard work!
Had to inside garden early, so we have a pretty bunch of veggie & flower seedlings coming up :D

Just want to say Thank You, ladies! My husband brought home my pack last night as I returned home with seed starter trays and sunlight flouresent bulbs to a busted garage door and a water leak.

I haven't opened my gift of seeds, because it will be a special event later today. Sore head-to-toe after 2week bedroom redo, yet gratefully anticipating this delightful reward.

Thank you so much for my new baby seeds!

Overcome with gratitude today...holding my dream cottage garden in the palms of my hands. Truly an answered prayer.

Greatly appreciate all my new seed packets. Especially excited for several cucumber varieties as that was the only vegetable that I did not have enough for this summer's garden! Now I need to spend some serious time figuring out what to plan and envisioning the layout of my next garden. So many seeds :) ... so little space :(
