update: acres tomato and pepper swap update

purpleacres(Upper Northern California)February 17, 2010

Howdee there

All mailers went out today and so sorry there is not paper or award in the mailers. I opted to not do the awards for this swap I really wanted to get them done and out so you all have them to start planting. I will start my tomatoes early to mid march. Any who I dont really have too many side notes. There was a few that sent really smaller seed packs and really small mailers those mailers got packs as full as i could get them packed and if you did not get 50 back. SEND A Bigger mailer next time. The selection was really outstanding this year and I reeally hope and believe everyone will be pretty happy.

Thanks for being in my swap and please let me know if ya have any question or if there is any confusion.

WhooHoo! Received my seeds today. Big thanks everyone. I received some great seeds! I need to go look some of them up!

I swear you must bribe your postal people, Purple! Sometimes sending mail to my Mom takes 2 days and she lives 80 miles away from me! Big thanks for all of your hard work.

Just a curiosity factor, Purple. I just finished a swap of my own and every year I'll get swamped with a couple of things. However, those couple of things seem to change every year!

So what tomatoes & peppers were you swamped with? What varieties did you wish you had more of? Maybe it'll help people decide what to put in the swap next year.

Thanks, Becky

Yeah ! I got my seeds today !! It's always better than Christmas and my Birthday to get an envelope FULL of seeds ! I've been eyeing my forlorn shelves and grow lights all day as I walked past them doing housework ... I am forcing myself to WAIT a few more weeks to start any seeds ! ;-)
Thank you Purple for another fantastic swap and thank you everyone who has shared their seeds with me , I really appreciate it .
