UPDATE: The Incredible Edibles - Odd, Odder and Oddest

sandlapper_rose(Zone 8)April 1, 2008

I posted swap partners at the end of the earlier thread. I will try to send e-mail to each person who signed up as well, but that might take me a day or two. Feel free to begin contacting each other to exchange mailing information. Remember to come back here and post when you receive your odd, odder, and oddest seeds and/or plants!

I hope everyone has lots of fun. I am having fun being the hostess for this swap.

If you post here that you and your partner have been in touch, I will not send an e-mail message to each of you - otherwise I will.
Still feeling a bit under the weather from my root canal earlier today. It was not pleasant!

comary, I have to stop by the post office tomorrow so I will be mailing your package. Please let me know when it gets there. We had two days with lots of rain so it was a good day to dig things.
Sorry, Susan, I only got one box of things packaged up today but will get your together soon, too.

I received a package from Mary today and it was filled with wonderful odd things - LOL - many of which I didn't even know existed. Anyway, I will do a list so you can consider such "unique" things for your own gardens.
Thanks a ton, Mary!!! Now a few of these are not to eat, but very happy to get them.
Mary sent:
Paprika Yarrow
Garlic Chives
French Tarragon
and seeds for Minnesota Midget Melon, Cinnamin Basil, two types of peppers (sorry, I can't read my writing where I jotted those names down...), Mourning Bride Scabiosa, Green Zebra Tomato and Purple Calabash Tomato, Perpetual Swiss Chard, and the following eggplants: Turkish Orange, Casper, Little Fingers, and Apple Green.
You are a treasure chest of oddities! Again, thanks so much.

Can't believe it did this (guess I am getting "into" the edibles theme) but I ordered a few more packets of seeds today. Anyway, when they come in I will be sharing some of them with Susan and Linda who have not had a package mailed out from me yet... and Mary (who I mailed to forgetting she would be out of town - as I told her - I was having a blond moment and I am not even blond.) Anyway, I suspect the plants that I sent to her will not make it, so Mary - you will get a few more packets of seeds in a second package. I should have placed this order sooner, but I have been busy with all the winter sowing seedlings that I have - they are not really big enough to ship to anyone, but they need to get out of their very crowded winter sowing containers. I have been spending about 3 1/2 a day lately in the garden. Whew - I sure hope those little plants appreciate my efforts! Some of you know what I mean when I say that winter sowing can be too successful!
Mary, Susan, and Linda - I'll let you know when I mail.
Happy Gardening!

Received my seeds today from Strmywthr3. Great minds think alike! We both gave each other basils (but different ones), both gave each other radishes (but different ones), both gave each other non-green lettuce (but different), both gave each other eggplants (one of the same!) I also received Early Purple Vienna Kohlrabi (Yeah! It was on my want list,) and Fuzzy Peach tomatoes, Black Plum Tomatoes, Purple Calabash tomatoes and Red Zebra tomatoes. What great seeds! Thanks so much!

Susan, I have been battling kidney stones since Monday night (actually it has been six weeks but I thought it was a pulled muscle in my side but one passed in the wee hours of Tuesday morning). I am feeling better and hopefully will have your package in the mail by this coming Saturday. Will post confirmation number when I send. Sorry for the lateness. Linda

Michelle,
Your package is on the way; confirmation number 03071790000367906994.
My printer cartridge died this morning and the detailed plant list I had typed to send along would not print. I included a brief written list, but if you want the details let me know when you receive it and I will send the document electronically.
I hope you enjoy what I sent!

As I think I mentioned, after I ordered one batch of odd seeds, I decided to order another. I have been holding off on mailing so they could get here. They showed up on Friday so I should be able to send to my remaining pals on Monday.
Thanks for being patient!

I will be mailing to Susan and Linda tomorrow as well as another small packet to Mary. As it turned out, I am sending more seeds than I anticipated - I wanted to add plants - but was feeling under the weather all weekend and just could not get out there to dig. I want to get these packages in the mail, especially now that my second batch of odd seeds arrived! (Mary, the extra packet is to make up for mailing too early while you were out of town. That was not good planning on my part! I'm sorry...)

Have a good week everyone.

If you have already posted or sent e-mail to me that you sent or received, this doesn't apply to you, but for the other swappers, please let me and your pal know your status - sent or received. I know some must be wondering if their pal has sent yet and where the package got to between your home and theirs. It will make it a lot easier if you will let us know what is going on.
Thanks so much!

Hello everyone and especially Melissa, Your package arrived today and it was wonderful. I was thrilled with the soil tester. I had always wanted one to do at home. Melissa sent:

Soil Test Kit (Yea)
Blue Podded Pea Seeds
Dragon Carrot Seeds
Naranjilla Seeds
Adzuki Bean Seed
Black Cherry Tomato Seeds (sounds wonderful and already planted in their new home!)
Armenian Cucumber seed (their now planted too)
Gaya Melon (I'm researching this one on how big it gets)
Lettuce seed
Onion seed (the last two are one of my favorite side dishes)
and a much needed cream for dry hands (my hands look awful right now)

Thank you very much for the package. I will enjoy all of it, especially the lotion.

We are looking for rain here and I have tried to plant all evening. Now I am just "pooped".

I hope everyone has a good weekend. Sonja

Just a reminder to everyone to send to your swap pal. If you are running late, let her and me know. I certainly hope everyone is following through. This was a good idea - to have a swap group for edibles, so let's not ruin a good thing!

Susie, hopefully a package is in fact on its way to you and if nothing arrives by the end of the month, I will be sending some seeds to you... or anyone else who has done their part in this swap and does not receive. If I was hostess every month, I could not do that - but this is a nearly brand new group - second month of swapping - and I don't want anyone to totally miss out.

Thanks for posting what you received, Sonja. It it fun to read about what different people are sending.

Jeanne I also Hope that the box will arrive this next week , This is why in every swap each of us need to take time to post with a conf # that our packages have been sent . it is a safer way to swap although it is not an insurance it will arrive I guess but then it might be able to be tracked anyway .
I'm not saying all packages but when they have plants it should be sent 2-3 day mail with a conf# .

But Please you do not have to send anything I still have many seeds to plant that I had shared with my partner & Just hope I can get all them in the Ground :))
We all Join these Knowing we take a risk of maybe a no show or lost boxes & you cannot or should not make up these loses thank you anyway.

The mail has been crazy this month any way with be tax month so there is still a chance it could show up.
keep faith :))

I am disappointed that there has been no further word from some who signed up for this swap.

No communication to debbya from tootiespop. (Noting can be sent unless there is an address exchanged.)

megajas has received from skohler.
skohler has not received from magajas.

sandlapper rose has not received from scents from heaven and has not heard whether what she sent was received.

I hope everything will get resolved. Let's keep swappng fun! If something came up after you signed up to do this swap, at least send an e-mail message so we will know what happened.

The month is over so unless there is a request otherwise, I will stop posting about this swap.
