All the mailers above for both swaps have been shipped out posted today 2-10.

42 mailers involved

Over 2100 seed packs

Does any one need green zebra tomatoes or standard pumpkin? lol

How about some Dill or cilantro ? Haha

LIFE pretty much got in the way of this swap and some times it just happens. And some times you just have to realize they are just seeds. I at times get frantic about doing these swaps making everyone happy and you just cant. You just sort the seeds and do your best that you can do. I am only human and I make errors. If you got something back that was yours or if you did not get back what you wanted. Just remember I�m human and I am more than welcome to do direct trades. You all did a great job packaging seeds and I am truly amazed at some of the handmade seed packs tooo cute.

For further references here are a few things for the new traders to remember.

Bubble mailers!!

Its hard to cram seeds into tiny ittty bitty mailers.

I thank everyone who participated in both my swaps this year. If you have any question I will be more than happy to help you.

Hubby is taking me to the coast from the 12th till the 17th so please if you have questions email me dirrectly so I can answer on my phone.

Thanks so much, Acres - this is always one of my favorite swaps. Now that I have a little bit more land to grow edibles, I'm really psyched.

Glad DH is taking you away for a few days; you deserve it!

With everything you had to deal with, I'm amazed that you got done with the swap already. Thanks for organizing it. If there are no Green Zebras in my packet, I will contact you about trading for some. I detect the early symptoms of a tomato addiction.

Received my envy of seeds from the Tomato/Pepper swap. There are some great varieties in the pile so now I'll be spending my spare time today researching them!!! I already know I'm in trouble, for I'm going to be wanting to try all of them. I have great luck growing peppers in 5 gal buckets, so will be lining more of them up along the fence again this year!!

Thanks Tracy for your hard work in collecting and distributing the seeds. Also a thanks to everyone for sending in great seeds, to help make it a great swap.

Howdee there

Awesome time off with the hubby. We had a lovely well deserved vacation on the coast. My mom has a house in Crescent city and she is always wanted me to come and use it but hubby and I just love Gold beach.

I am so happy all the mailers are getting back home and with such speed. I only host these two swaps and they are more fun each year. With this being the 10th year for the Acres Edible swap I really wanted it to be out standing. In past years there has been trivia and awards and such fun. Perhaps next year :)

Now its off to sort seeds from my seed orders for my garden season. I will start my tomatoes and peppers, eggplant etc. next month. I grow about 200 extra plants each year and sell them locally. With the 100 assorted plants I start each year for my self for my garden it sure becomes a jungle in the green house.

Happy gardening
