I'm getting my seeds ready to send. (by November 8th) Some still need to mature on the plants. Hope Hurricane Sandy doesn't blow them away. Come what may, I have plenty to donate to newbies. Hope everyone stays safe in this storm.

Just sent my envelope in yesterday. Hurricane Sandy has slowed down the mail here in NY a bit... I hope they get to you by Nov 8. And I hope you are well jensyen. I know Long Island got hit as hard as us in the city.
Looking forward to hearing that you got my package Willy.
Be well everyone,

This should be the last message most of you will receive for this swap. Most people have sent their seed packages in and a few more should arrive by this weekend, I will go through all the packages and try to have them back to you by the end of the month. But for those that have missed out or want to participate in the swap, the 2013 New Years Everything Swap is now being posted, so please sign up today. Happy Thanksgiving to you all, many blessings.. Willy your host.
