Hello! New and wondering how to join.

Ames7(9b)June 20, 2013

Hello everyone,
I'm new here and just signed up. I'm actually just starting my vegetable garden and am really interested in veg and herb seeds. Perhaps some flowers especially if they are edible.
I do have have some 15 to 16 types of seeds in limited quantities to trade from a couple of kind neighbors fabulous yards. These are mostly organic, open pollinated, hand harvested new seed. But I only have tiny quantities. (I'll have a list in a couple of days, wondering what else to start this weekend first)
I have replied to a couple of people and the round robin is something I'd like to try.
How do I go about this? Any help would be really appreciated.
Thank you for your time!

P.S - How you collect mint seeds? I have three diff. types but I haven't noticed any flowers or seeds?

Hi Ames,
Welcome to GardenWeb! If you are into mostly veggies, be sure to check out the Incredible Edibles (IE) group. They are taking a break right now during the summer months, but should get started back up again in the fall.

Also, for flowers (mostly), there are 3 regular swap groups these days:
1. Make New Friends (MNF), which is an awesome swap for those just getting started
2. Friends of the Earth Simple Swaps (FOTESS), which requires membership but is a delightful group. Focus is on being Earth friendly, reusing, upcycling, and sharing. My favorite!
3. Our Blooming Friends (OBF), which also requires membership, and has some really elaborate swaps by member that share stunning boxes.

If you are interested in any of these, just say so!

Happy gardening!
