new-june fotess swap - let's take a break!
Hi Everybody, and welcome to the Friends of the Earth-Simple Swaps for June!
First of all, to participate in these swaps, you must be a member of FOTESS. If you would like to join, we'd love to have you! Contact Jeanne or myself to learn how to join!
In the past eight months, since we started FOTESS back in October, we've done quite alot of seed swapping. My thoughts for June were, maybe, by now, everyone would be ready to take a break from swapping seeds, from signing up on time, from mailing packages and meeting deadlines.
I thought it might be nice instead, to talk about all those seeds we received and what we did with them.
And just in case you've forgotten:
Last month we sent cuttings, something new to some of us, tell us what you learned! Any successes yet?
In April, we wrote poems about our seed compulsions and sent our excess seeds on to someone else!
In March, Jeanne hosted a swap for miniature seed types, any minis growing out there?
In February we tried to chase the winter blues away by sharing blue seeds. Any True Blues?
In January, Jeanne introduced us to Upcycling, which has made me look twice at anything I'm about to pitch!
December saw us sending Feathered Feast out to the birds; how many kinds of birds did you have at your feeders this year?
November was our Soltice Swap. We shared 4 packs of seeds, to be wintersowed, one pack each for Remembrance, Leap of Faith, Life and Mother Nature.
And October was our inaugral swap, in which we started "Sowing the Seeds of Recycling, Seeding and Reading".
How about it? Are you ready for a break? We would love to see all of our members post at least once and let us know how their gardens, seeds, recycling/upcycling efforts are going, also any good books, fiction or otherwise you've read lately.
If you can't remember who you got those seeds from, or even what they were, you can check back through the FOTESS threads. It's all in there!
I'm taking a break for the month of June and I hope you'll join me! I'll be back later with updates on ALL those seeds I received!
