Incredible Edibles September swap--New Proposal!

gardenkitteh(7)August 25, 2008

Okay, it's been suggested that we make this a "real" round robin. I want everyone's opinion on this. You can e-mail me privately. If this makes ANYONE uncomfortable, we will not do it this way. Since you can e-mail me privately, no one has to know that you are the one who objected. Here is basically what we propose:

We are sending the same box around to everyone. Person A sends to person B, then the box is sent from B to C, etc. until person Z sends back to person A. After the box makes two circuits (everyone gets the box twice) the box retires and the round robin is over.

I'm thinking I'll start it off, and since I'm starting it off there will be four seed packs and five different types of bulbs.

You have one week to send the box to the next person. In that time, you basically pull out seeds and bulbs that you like, and replace the ones you've pulled out with something of equal or greater value. Then you send the box to the next person.

Now you don't have to replace everything in the box. You can if you'd like, but you can also not pull anything out if you don't want anything.

Any objections? If you are in favor of this, please e-mail me with your address.

One interjection here...you said:
Now you don't have to replace everything in the box. You can if you'd like, but you can also not pull anything out if you don't want anything.

I think if you take everything out of the box, then you should replace with the same amount....so the next person doesnt recieve an empty box LOL!!

Sorry. I mis-communicated. I meant that if you take something out you MUST put something in. But if you don't choose to take anything out you can just forward the box as is.

Okay, the final list is:
GardenKitteh

SouthernCharm1
Sunnyk
FrenchFryLegs1
NcGardenGirl

Luvgardening2

And I don't see why we can't just send things in that order. Does anyone have any objections? If no one objects, I'll be sending the box out to BoneChickChris on Wednesday. Please e-mail the person ahead of you on the list with your address.

Diane - Was wondering if other misc gardening goodies will be ok to add to the pot/box same take and replace system... And maybe put an envelope in the box for everyone to add a recipe to and each person can take out the one they like the best and replace with one of their own...
(wonders just how big this box is gonna be... and what I can cram into it... hehehe)

I say we should all probably try to put in a note and if we can put in garden goodies then that's good too.

I would like to add that even if you do not take anything from the box, that you could still add some goodies to it to bigger the pot! Also, I think even besides replacing what you take, you should add adtleast 1 or more extras to the pot besides your replacements, this way it will keep growing and not stay the same small pot. Does this make sense?

Diane, you need my addy again? I guess I should get to ordering asap! Christy

Yes, it is tradional to add whether you take out or not.

Kitteh, it will be just fine, and SO much fun..
usually though everyone would send their addy to u and u would make addy labels for us to just stick on the robin...
but I don't have a problem getting the next persons addy and I will have Pixies anyway...

I thought I was making no secret of feeling overwhelmed. But that's my natural state so no-one should be too terribly worried about me. *grins*

I just need addresses from

If I don't have their addresses by tomorrow, I'll simply move them to the back of the list so that they have more time to get their addresses to us.

Don't mind criticisms so people, if you see me screwing something up PLEASE chime in and let me know. Thanks.

Diane, you are doing a great job! Just think how great it will be when the robin makes its final landing at your door! It may be a little while from know, but well worth the wait!
Talk to everyone soon! Christy

Hey Becky, I just wanted to let you know I received the package yesterday evening, our mail usually gets here between 5 and 5:30. Yeah I know its late, on getting the mail that late and letting you know I got it.
Thank you very much. I will be planting those onions! And that potato recipe looks very yummy indeed.

Oh yeah wanted to tell you, you should have seen my panic BEFORE I opened the package trying to figure out WHO I owed a trade to in NY....LOL I was sitting there thinking..NY, NY, NY then I thought LOOK at WHO it is from...nope still wasn't getting anything, then as I was opening the flap (cuz I thought well go ahead and open it maybe you will get an IDEA) as anyway as I was opening the flap, I was thinking Becky, NY...hummm...JUST as I got it open it hit me..Becky/BOO OH YEAH...oh thank god it isn't a trade I forgot....hehehe You almost had me in panic attack mode...rofl HEHEHE

ANYWAY Thanks again...

Ok! The Robin has made its first landing today! Neat stuff! I have goodies to add from one order I got, plus I had another order put in that I am still waiting on, however, the one order I am waiting on has the same or very similar stuff to what is in the box now, so those things I may hold off until I recieve the box the second time around so there are not duplicates in there and I can get this off VERY quickly. Does that sound good?

Hello...
Sorry have been busy with the kids getting ready for school and canning. I think I have aboput 6 bushel of tomatoes this year and I have done 3 bushels, there are many more tomatoes in the garden, also I grew my own herbs, onoins and green peppers for sauce. Will it ever end!!
I was not thinking you would leave me out gardenkitteh I was just letting you know I was around. That was my way of trying to be funny and noticable...
It just seems like as soon as I got involved here everything has gone haywire!! It should get better this week... my kids start school tomorrow, I am half way (I hope)done with canning, and my job seems to be going to the wrong side so it will slow down. Don't think I am ignoring anyone just not able to get on everyday right now.
I am so excited and can't wait for my turn...Thank you this has been a rambling message and I will try to do better next time.

OK Guys, I am getting ready to send out the Robin. Now I have to run some things by you guys,,,, not to put a damper on this, but the bulbs/roots in the box are currently in plastic bags which I thought was fine. Now, today, on one of the roots, I noticed a little mossy mold growing, which is worrying me about all these bulbs/roots traveling around to everyone. Should they be packed up in something else? Or put holes in the bags?
I would hate for them to go bad in the mail. Maybe the bulb/roots might not make it going a full ROund Robin?
I hate to bum everyone out, But I want to make sure that they survive. This is the first week, and if they are getting moldy now, that is not good.They may have to be taken by someone not too far down the line.
Any suggestions before I send off? Christy

ANybody read my post yet? I guess if I do not get any feedback from any of you, I will not worry about it and just send it on......... Maybe I am over-reacting
I will wait until tomorrow and if nobody has any objections, I will send it out as is, maybe with the bags open a little bit to let some air circulation in to the roots/bulbs, Christy

Christy,

Do you have access to any sawdust or tiny woodchips? if so put those around the roots, if not just cut holes in the baggie and add ripped up/shredded newspaper. Take some scissors or a knife and just put holes in the baggie also.

And if they are freshly dug I would say there are to moist? to travel. Unless you can put them in a little dampen peat.
Other than what Pixie said I am out of ideas.

Maybe on the second round we should go back to having a partner, then we could send individual stuff like what Christy is wanting to send. Then she could just put whatever it is in the fridge and wait for partners to be assigned?

I will check in my yard where my husband cuts the firewood up for any saw dust and wood chips. I know he cuts right near the lake's edge, so hopefully they will not be moist, although it has not rained here in over 2 weeks, so I am sure it will be pretty dry.
I am sure everything will be ok. I added mostly an assortment of seed packets to the box so no worries. What ever roots/bulbs in the box I will try to add some saw dust to and and put some tiny holes in the bags. That seems to be the way I remember recieving some flower bulbs.
Ok, should be off today! Christy

Once they get to me I could add some of the shredded pine bedding that my Guinea Pigs live in if need be...and if there arent any bulbs left by that time, I could just throw a bag of the stuff in just in case someone else needs it down the line or for the next time the box goes around :)

Did you get a D/C # Christy? If not that's ok. Florida has the slowest mailmen on earth, they have to walk to the Florida/Georgia line and walk it back! hahaha
Usually gets here in 4 days from anywhere.

Side note: Please everyone make sure to get DC and post it here when mailing the RR. It'll give everyone something to look forward too if they know where it is and where it's headed. Thanks a bunch!!! :)

I guess you want to know what I kept. Sorry, did realize to tell everyone sooner! I kept the 5 Saffron bulbs and some St. Valery Carrots. So I took 2 things and put in 5 or 6 things I think. I do not want to say what is in the box so it remains surprising as it flys to each person, unless you want to know. Christy

Polly, Yes please post the Zucchini Relish Recipe, Sounds very yummy!

Hmmm, I took out carrot seed, garlic and ginger. :) I put quite a bit of goodies back in the box too. :) This is so much fun! Can't wait to see what ends up in the box on 2nd round. :)

Christy, everything looks great! No fuzzies on it. :)

I'm so sorry the ginger molded. What kind of ginger was it again?

I'm not terribly good at the whole "packing" thing. And when you consider that I live in the middle of a swamp that's been converted to city, well. . .

But Yay! Round robin on it's way. Good luck! Hopefully you like the ginger and garlic. Which Garlic did you take? Will you be dropping off fuzzy 'nanamals in the box?

Its not your fault Diane! It is just the nature of the root!Where did you find the Safron Bulbs at? That has to be the coolest bulbs I have ever had! I did plant them already because it says that they can be planted for fall so we will see how it goes! Christy

Saffron I got off of Amazon. I figured that if they labeled it wrong, I'd at least get crocuses. Saffron crocuses actually bloom in the fall, not the spring. I think it's amusing that the parts you eat are the pollen dispensers. So basically you are eating the flower's boy-parts.

*pats Fran* It's okay. You get the box after SunnyK and FrenchFryLegs1. Think of how many nifty things will be in the box by the time you get it.

It's 3 am and the winds from the remnants of Ike are beating on the house. The electricity has gone off and on a couple times now. Anyway, I think Polly must have gone for a weekend getaway. I'd like to see her zucchini relish recipe and compare notes. I use Linda Lou's zucchini relish recipe. There's a link to the recipe below. To stay remotely on topic, it does have 3 cups of onion in it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Zucchini relish

My husband's reaction was basically "Ewww!" when I told him about the saffron. Then I told him that he already had saffron in many dishes and he was really squicked. So I reassured him that I would continue lying to him and he'd never know when he was eating flower boy-parts. He was cool with it then.

When he brings me flowers I always squeal and say "You cut off the reproductive organs of plants for my amusement! Thank-You!"

Heck. I'm curious about Linda Lou's recipe! And I usually hate zucchini.

When she came in the drive to hand them to me, she said "You planning doing some SHIPPING?" kind of real nervous like....HAHAHAHA

Little does she know I take it to the Post Office myself to make it easier on her.

I will be looking for her :)!!!

Nice to know I'm not the only one who has terrified their Mail Carrier. My Mailman does the exact same thing when I get a package. Sadly, I do ship through him. He's kinda scared when I inform him that things are living. He says he's waiting for me to come out with a weird plant/animal hybrid and use it to take over the world. He does admire my garden, though.

I am so mad,,,, ERRRRRRRRRRR! A darn chipmunk or squirrel ate 3 of my 5 safron crocus that I got from the box! I am so angry! I did not think they would be bothered because the squirrels and chipmunks tend not to like the the regualr crocus bulbs, so I thought they would stay away from them! I knew I should have put a screen over it!
I hope I can still get some more. I was looking so forward to them. maybe there will be some next time I get the box.

I am waiting on something so naturally this is going to be the SLOW and LATE day. My maillady is always SO darn slow and I CAN NOT figure out why cuz when we have sub carriers they are always here by 1:00 pm! Don't know WHY she is so late EVERYDAY!

If it doesn't get here today I am going to be so disappointed, I have pretty much had my face pressed up against the window ALL DAY....haha

There was one piece of Shampoo ginger left I took that one.
And some other bulbs I took 2 each of and don't want to say so as to not ruin the surprise for others after me.
I took 4 of the egyptian walking onions, a package of the white pattypan squash and the BEAUTIFUL PURPLE CARROTS!!!

It was a very nice box it was VERY FUN opening the box!!!

Hi all,

second night in a row that I have been able to get online so I came here first this time. Cant say how long it will last or even if everything will get posted that I want to post so I'll shut up and chat~

WHOOO I am excited! !! the box is on its way here to Katy America!!! Land of Ike (it seems anymore). I have all my goodies laid out and waiting for it! Can't wait to see the goodies inside!

If I can't get online Tracyvine will post for me (she has been my savior since Ike hit) but it is looking like things have calmed down here with the flooding of the internet and phone waves. (crossing my fingers and toes!)

Hope everyone has a great Sunday night!

POSTING FOR: Pixie

She wanted everyone to know it arrived today and she is scavenging for goodies to replace what she removed and will try to send it out tomorrow BUT if not then Wednesday for sure.
She took out some of each garlics, the remaining 2 egyptian walking onion bulbils, A piece of the culinary ginger, some of the "special items" don't want to spoil what these are for the next to receive, and a few of some of the seeds.

She said it was fun to go through the box to see what all was in there. She is also having to replace the box because she said on this trip out it was treated REALLY ROUGHLY. (although they were supposed have stamped it FRAGILE for me!)
She will let someone know when it flies back out IF she can't post the DC# herself, so someone can post the # for her.

That is it!!!

From me, glad you liked what I put in there Pixie, I hope the next in line does too.

Yeah, I wonder HOW the boxes get so damaged too, when they are posed to say FRAGILE, OR something to that effect. They never pay any attention to those markings, only look for an address to deliver it too! So sad, you'd think with as much as we pay for their services they would treat the packages as if they were golden!!!

AHHH, SUCH IS LIFE...take it as it is I guess huh?

Hi all of you Incredible Edibles! Trina is on the phone with me now and has the box ready to go out. She just needs the address for Luvgardening so she can get it on it's way. She can't log onto her email to retrieve the address. I will call her and then come back to post the dc# for her once I receive the address. I'm sorry that she has been out of contact for so long but her phone service has been eratic and her internet is still down for the most part and she can't receive email or log onto GW.

Hi, Just wanted to let everyone know that the RR arrived from Pixie/Trina. I almost missed it. I was looking out for it because I felt it should be today. The gardeners were here and I was in the bedroom with my dogs, trying to keep them quiet. I thought I heard something so I went out. Figured it was the gardener wanting something. It was the postman. He was about to walk away and leave me a card to pick it up at the post office. WHEW!

WOW! LOTS and LOTS of goodies. I will go through it and replace with my goodies. I did receive my very large order yesterday so the timing is perfect.

I will post again with the DC# and the goodies I took out.

YAY! I can't wait to see what's in it by the time it gets back around to me! :) lol

I'm still not getting over how fast it's going around! This is so much fun, I know it was a lot for Diane to keep up with, but she's done a wonderful job hosting this. Keep up the good work Diane! :)

I am back as promised. I did get it shipped off on Friday AM.

Joan, It's COMING!!!!

DC# 0308 2040 0000 5299 5133

I took 2 types of radish seeds, parsnip and I took the Bull's Blood Beets. I also removed a few bulbs and will be putting them in the ground today.

I have never done a real RR before. I sure am glad that you guys changed the rules and chose to do it this way. It was so much FUN. I felt like a little girl in a candy store and was told to take whatever you want. He He

Can't wait for Round 2.

Okay, I pillaged to my hearts content in the box last night! :) It's packed back up with more new stuff and it's on it's way today. Will post conf# this afternoon.
I kept for myself:
Seeds:
Patty pan squash
Chives - garlic
Plants:
(1) Sweetheart Caladium (last one) Sorry ladies!
(2) small Red Ruffle Caladiums
I REALLY LOVE THESE - BEEN WANTING THEM FOREVER!!!!
Bulbs:
Elephant Garlic
Variegated Ginger
(I was scared of the Hot garlic! I've never tried it and didn't know how "hot" it would be.)
& the sweetest little sunflower birdhouse!
I made sure I put back in MORE than I took out, so that box is close to explosion capacity!!!!! LOL
Thanks again everyone for letting me join it! I had a ball! Watch out Wind_Red, it's headed your way!

Joan

PS - That box would qualify for frequent flyer miles if it were a person!!!! ROFL!!

Thank you everyone for care about my flu.You girls are sooooooo sweet~~~~after 3 days of sleeping I feel much better,but I still have a little cough.
My friend told me to heat up half cup of honey and add half of fresh lemon juice and drink it will stop the cough for whole night.I try it last night and it works better then any other cough syrup.
