Going to be 2 more months at this pace before we finish. Unless the last stops are only looking for direct sow, we need to speed up.

According to tracking.... package was delivered to Dap7777777

April 10, 2014 , 3:16 pm

Delivered

OCEANSIDE, NY 11572

well over a week ago. Still have not seen any post that they have rec'd nor sent it back out....I am next and have heard nothing. Will post if it ever arrives... seems as though Im gonna be done with planting by the time it finally does arrive... 2-3 days MAX for holding this is NOT asking too much and if a problem arrives common courtesy to let other members riding be aware of the hold up. Dont think Ill be playing again. This is becoming ridiculous folks. Lets get this moving along... 23 people riding and we are only on #10 who has not even posted having rec'd. Please take my name off the list.

jplayland - wish you would reconsider about dropping out. I have some Hazelnuts from our shrubs that I was going to put in for you. I will check everyone's wish list that comes after me and include anything I have that is on your list. If any of you want Goji Berries, I have lots of them.
If your seeds arrive too late for this year's planting, put them in the fridge for next year. I have held lots of seeds over this way. Yes, I belong on the show Hoarders, LOL!

I still wish to remain part of the train but I do have to agree, the lack of communication and the week long holdings that have happened are frustrating. I think two days is more than plenty to look through and send it on it's way. I have two kids (three if you count my husband) and they all know when that package arrives, your on your own for 2 hours. I'm getting mommy time.
We should be near the end of the list by now, not in the middle!!!!!

Sorry for the hassle folks but I cant make people hurry along. passing it along in a timely manner is not too much to ask. The first two years of this went great. just too many people this year i guess. This will be the last year. and im sorry to hear that jp and pink, if you need anything or any of you need any thing please don't hesitate to ask. and yes seeds do keep for the next year.

When it arrives, I should be able to look through it and send out next day if that helps! I'm basically done sowing/wintersowing for this year but I just love finding new seeds already for next year! they may not all germinate, but even one plant can make my day!! I will just be storing any seeds I take for next year :) I can't wait till it arrives!!

Please keep me on the list. I will save some for next year and add to the stash. Plus those hazelnuts sound great. Any idea of the type or are they native?

I planted two Hazelnut shrubs about 30 yrs. ago. I can't remember where I bought them, but it might have been Vernon Barnes & Son out of Tn. They are huge now....must be at least 15' tall.

Rachel, thank you so much for hosting this, I'm very very sorry to hear this will be the last year! I LOVED getting that big pack of seeds in the mail, and I'm pretty sure my husband got even more excited about it than I did. :) Thanks for playing, everyone!

You don't have to send me anything.. Thank you so much for coordinating the swap! :)
It's just so sad when communication is lost on a swap!

I had fun with the the first round! Too bad about this one...

July 17th.. Elvi kept the package. It never arrived, this swap is stalled - closed for now. If it ever arrives I will post right away.

I previously used to host seed, other round robins. I know how frustrating it is for someone to NOT pass on a package!

Especially frustrating for me. I got skipped the first round, waited forever since this thing was ordered south first, north last, then the thief is a couple of people before me. The design of this type of swap is horribly flawed. Would be better to eliminate the "train" aspects and instead have one trusted organizer receive all seeds and redistribute.

Cryptid,
Nothing ever arrived as of 8/20. I've hosted enough swaps to make the call- to call this swap OVER. ;(
If Elvi ever decides to mail the package--- PLEASE JUST SKIP ME! Go to the next in line.

It's so frustrating to 'be next' when a package isn't arriving!
