NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Double Delights Swap
This is a swap hosted by the Incredible Heirlooms group, Double Delights! We will be swapping edibles that have more than one use and/or pupose!
Examples of such would be:
A bean that could be eaten with the pod as a string bean, yet can grown as a dry bean also.
Both the root and the leafy tops of beets can be eaten.
Pumpkins that can be used for decoration, yet the flesh can be cooked for soup and pie, and the seeds can be roasted and eaten.
Zuchinnis that can be harvested very young as fingerling fruit, or grown larger for frying and stuffing. Certain varieties produce lots of flowers that are used in omlettes or stuffed with cheese! Yummy!
Edibles gourds can be used for decoration or be grown to eat.
Raddichio/Endive can be grown to pick young for baby leaf salads, or grown out to its head form.
Kale can be grown as a baby salad leaf to add to mixed salads, or the mature plant can also be used as a winter hardly vegetable when fresh produce is short in supply.
Peppers with ornamental values can be grown for their eye catching qualities, and also be eaten.
Some tomatoes are great for slicing fresh, and at the same time, are great for canning/sauce making also. One tomato for 2 jobs!
Ok, that was just all off the top of my head! So imagine what you can come up with if you really thought about it!
Edibles with more than one use are also great for the gardener who does not have much room to plant, yet wants to get the most out of what they do plant.
So, they are lots of veggies/fruits/herbs that can fall into this catagory!
PLEASE send your partner 6-7 seed packets, with each seed packet being a new/full packet of seeds, or seed that is equal to a new pack of seeds. Feel free to send more if you are your partner agree to do so. You can send partial packets as extras too!
You can also feel free to add a little something swap related to their box!
I will be taking sign ups until the 17th, a couple days earlier to make time for people who plan on ordering seeds. I know that some companies have been a little slow on their shipping.
Please have your package mailed out to your partner by May 7th. That should give everyone plenty of time to hook up with their partners, and get seeds together or ordered if need be.
So let the fun begin!!!!
