In the next six weeks, we have our wedding anniversary, Father's Day, three birthdays, and two visits from family members, soooooo needless to say my swapping resources will be a bit limited. However, I think this one will be so much fun that I can't resist!

As people know, I'm a nosy Nellie! So what do you like to grow in your garden? All heirlooms? The weirder the better? All one color? Are there veggies you just have to grow every year?

Inquiring minds want to know! Oh, and because I'm so nosy, I also try and solve the mystery before the mystery is over!

Are we allowed to post hints as to who our partner is when the time comes?

Just an FYI

I was stunned to see just how much Baker's Creek was sold out of. I'm also frustrated with the lack of choices locally for OP or heirloom corn. The choice is what I should say. Local stores only have Golden Banton for heirloom/op corn. Anyway, a nice place to try for heirloom and op seeds is Victory Seed. They do NOT have anything too exotic but a good place with reasonable prices. I've read nothing but good things about them. They only have positive reviews on Garden Watchdog too.

Yes, the pickin's are getting pretty slim! Heirloom Seeds isn't taking any more orders right now, and Pinetree has a 3 or 4 week turn around time. What about Reimer Seeds? I haven't ordered from them before, but they do seem to have a nice selection there.

Hi Bonnie,

Reimer's has a really bad reputation. From what I've read, they are not very prompt. They're also notorious for mislabelled seeds. Here's a thread about them from another gardening site.

A couple more places I would try are Southern Exposure Seed Exchange and Seed Savers Exchange. Both have good reputations.

Hey Becky, I sent you an email just a few mins ago. :)

Attention everyone, I understand that everyone is probably working their gardens right now. I have decided to postpone both IH and IE June swaps. Please look for these themes in the future. :)
