New: Color of the Month for June - BLUE!

cybermeowz(4 - ND)June 5, 2010

The color of the month swap for June is BLUE. We will need at least 5 people to sign up for this swap to go forward. POST HERE if you would like to participate. After signing up here on this thread, please send me an e-mail with your full name & address and your GardenWeb name. I will send out my address after there are at least 5 responders.

DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP: June 16

DEADLINE FOR SENDING SEEDS: June 19

You may include seeds that produce BLUE flowers, foliage, fruits, or vegetables, or just have the word "BLUE" in their names!

You may send edible and non-edible seeds.

(Please specify what you would like back: edible, non-edibles, or a mix of both)

I will do my best to fill your request, but it all depends on what is sent in!

Absolutely NO Invasive Plants or Noxious Weeds!!!!

Please send seeds no older than 2 years old.

Please include on the packet label: the seed's name, a little blurb about it, and whether your seeds are from a commercial source or hand-collected.

The limit for all of the color swaps is 10 packs, but please feel free to send in extras. These will be counted as bonus packs and I will try to send bonuses back to those who send them in. You can send in as little as 1 pack of seeds, there is no minimum to send in.

Please send in the number of seeds that you would be comfortable receiving yourself depending on the variety. There should be a minimum of 10 seeds per pack.

Please send only 1 pack per variety. Again, you may send more than one pack of a certain variety, but please know that they will be counted as 'extras'. So each variety will be counted as one trade.

Sorry that this swap is being posted latter. I needed to wait to see if the original scheduled hostess was still planning on hosting this swap. I never heard back from them so I am posting the thread now. Lets get this swap started. I've got a bunch of blue seeds waiting for new homes in my seed box!!!

Your hostess,

Penny

Hi everyone!

Today I received Blue Seeds from ihana. Thanks Tina! I'm still waiting for seeds from suzanne 719 and Shanti. I will give it until Monday, maybe Tuesday, for the other seeds to arrive and then I will sort and send your new seeds back to everyone. So seeds should go back into the mail for the return trip on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Thanks for your patience everyone.

Hello everyone!

Today, I received Shanti's blue seeds. Thank you Shanti!

That means I have received seeds from everyone but suzanne 719. I'm assuming she has dropped out, so today I will sort the seeds and repackage them for their return trip. I will check for Suzanne 719's seeds one last time tomorrow morning and do a quick repack if necessary. The Blue Seeds will go in the mail for their return trip tomorrow. Thanks for waiting everyone!

Hi everyone!

The BLUE SEEDS are in the mail! I didn't quite make it to the post office in time yesterday, so they went in the mail this morning. Thanks for all of the interesting seeds that you all sent in! Please post here when you get your seeds, so that I know that they arrived safely.

ihana, no big deal! Just as long as they get here, that is all that really matters.

For anyone who is interested, the color of the month for July is RED and Bonnie is hosting that swap right here.

I also thought that I would post the remaining schedule for the Color of the Month Swaps. Here it is:

July -- RED - Will be hosted by Bonnie (highalttransplant)

August -- PURPLE - Will be hosted by Linda (lindaruzicka)

September -- BLACK - Will be hosted by Janine (janine)

October -- ORANGE - Will be hosted by Lynn (carsons_mimi)

November -- BIG RAINBOW - Will be hosted by Penny (cybermeowz)

December -- SILVER & GOLD - Will be hosted by Jeanne (sandlapper rose)

Thanks everyone for a great swap!
