new: october mnf scared my plants off halloween seed swap

poisondartfrogSeptember 28, 2013

Welcome ghoulies! Old and new ghouls are invited to participate. This swap is open to everyone, requiring only that you are a GW member age 18 or over.
Halloween goblins scare my pants off and the threat of cooler weather and shorter days is scaring the seeds right off my plants! Yours too?
Those seeds won't have to be afraid if we collect them and share them around with other gardeners so that they can live another season.

This is my favorite time of year and this month's swap will reflect the special features of the season. Here are the rules.

1. Sign up on this thread by October 8.

2. You will receive the same number of packs you send in unless there are extras available, and then you may receive more. If you send mostly ornamentals you will receive mostly ornamentals in return, if you send mostly vegetables, you will receive mostly vegetables. Please send no more than 3 packs of any one variety or cultivar.

3. The minimum number of packs to send is lucky number 13. The most to send is 4 times thirteen- 52 packets. Any over 52 packets will be considered extras. You can send any seeds you want, but try to include a few that reflect autumn, harvest time or Halloween. Seeds with scary names or that bloom or produce fruits in colors like orange, purple, black, blood red...you get the idea, would be great choices. For example, you could send orange Calendulas or Carrots, Bloody Butcher Tomato, Black Scabiosa, Pumpkins, Gourds, herbs used for spells, Eryngium Miss Wilmott's Ghost, etc.

4. Seeds should be no older than 2012 and although there is no need to send stuffed packets they should contain enough seeds to insure a reasonable chance of successfully germinating a few specimens. I hate to assign numbers but would stipulate no fewer than 8 seeds for super large seeds like Castor Beans, for instance, and no fewer than 15-20 seeds for smaller seeds. Practically speaking I don't need any more small seeds than I do large ones, but it is nice to be able to see them in the pack.

5. You will put your seeds in the mail to me no later than October 18. I will provide my address once signups are closed. If not mailed timely I will return your package unopened. I want to get them back out in time to arrive for Halloween. In addition to the seeds you will include a return mailing label and stamps according to this schedule:
If you send 13 packs-2 first class stamps
If you send 26 packs-3 first class stamps
If you send 39 packs-3 first class stamps
If you send 52 packs -4 first class stamps

This is not a wish list swap and will not be open to side trades, but if you have a GW "want" list I will be reviewing them in case there is a match.

For entertainment we will play Disappearing Bingo once sign ups's are closed. You may play or not, as you like. A prize will be awarded to the winner. More information about that forthcoming.

That's it. I hope you will jump on the hayride with me and savor the season. I'm saving you a spot on the bale right next to mine....

-Count- me in.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays although now that we live in the country, I no longer decorate like I used to. I miss that a lot.

I have been harvesting quite a bit lately so anxious to share with others. Thanks Alana

Welcome Margo and Jayeanne!
I can hear Don Henley singing:

"Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
'Relax' said the night man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave!"

Wonderful, more victims participants! Melissa, Annie, Ruth, Jean and Jessica, welcome to the party!
Melissa, you may become swap addicted, a condition I highly recommend.
Annie, you are in charge of Halloween libation.
Thanks Ruth, but what costume? ;)
Thank you for joining Jean!
Jessica, your 2013 commercial seeds are fine. You could also check out the seed saving forum if you want to try saving a few of your own.

Halloween greetings, lavenderpyly. Come in.....

Amy, I was waiting until the end of sign ups to send my address so that I could send a couple of mass emails, but can go ahead and send it to people who are ready, I suppose. Just don't be annoyed if you get it again later, lol.

Everyone, make sure your settings permit member emails.
Have a delightful first day of October.

I'll add your name, mjzzyzoff, Molly. Thank you for joining us.
Disappearing bingo? A little ghost will help me with that. I will elaborate this weekend when I have more time.

The Little Ghost, Edna St Vincent Millay
I knew her for a little ghost
That in my garden walked;
The wall is high--higher than most--
And the green gate is locked.
And yet I did not think of that
Till after she was gone--
I knew her by the broad white hat,
All ruffled, she had on.
By the dear ruffles round her feet,
By her small hands that hung
In their lace mitts, austere and sweet,
Her gown's white folds among.
I watched to see if she would stay,
What she would do--and oh!
She looked as if she liked the way
I let my garden grow!
She bent above my favorite mint
With conscious garden grace,
She smiled and smiled--there was no hint
Of sadness in her face.
She held her gown on either side
To let her slippers show,
And up the walk she went with pride,
The way great ladies go.
And where the wall is built in new
And is of ivy bare
She paused--then opened and passed through
A gate that once was there.

Hibiscusfan, primrose 1x3 and MissyGA64, welcome to the swap!
Missy, is that Solanum quitoense, Naranjilla? I love it!!!

Just two more days to sign up if you want to join this haunted swap.

For those that want to play disappearing Bingo, the object of this version is to have no selected word left on your Iist at the end of the game. On Tuesday I will post a list of words, phrases or names that evoke the "spooky season". You will choose 12 words and email your list to me by Thursday night. Starting Friday I will draw two words each day. Each time a word is drawn from your list, that is a point against you. On Friday and Saturday, the little ghost will also draw two words each day. Those words will disappear from the list as if it never existed, and if it is on your Bingo list, it will disappear there too. The first person to have 0 words on their list wins. If everyone still has words on their list on October 27 the person with the fewest words left wins. If more than 2 people have the same number of words I will post a tie breaker.

If one door closes and another one opens.....your house is probably haunted.

Of all the plant (veggie and flower) she is my fav. My kids have nicknamed her " the witch" because she looks so wicked.

Too bad, Dee, but I doubt you will miss it much. Enjoy your travels.

Today I received seeds from cryptid and katyerra. I may peek in those later this evening. The packages I've opened so far have some very intriguing vegetables in them! I wish it was April already.

I also got Bingo word lists from:
Jessica
Suzanne
Nikki
Mary
and Don.
There is still time to send a list if you want to play.

Today I also received this charming, fun and timely poem from recipesaver2. Thank you Jean!

THE GHOST OF A FLOWER

"You're what?" asked the common or garden spook
Of a stranger at midnight's hour.
And the shade replied with a graceful glide,
"Why, I'm the ghost of a flower."

"The ghost of a flower?" said the old-time spook;
"That's a brand-new one on me;
I never supposed a flower had a ghost,
Though I've seen the shade of a tree."s
Anonymous

Tomorrow I will start a new thread and draw the first two Bingo Words.
Have a good evening.

I am here tonight for a favor. I am in need of quick prayers for my 24 year old daughter. She went to the emergency room yesterday because she first started having stabbing pains in her chest then her left side began tingling and she was dizzy and had difficulty concentrating. She was tested for stroke and bloodclot and when they could not find anything, sent her home. Her pain went away but not the tingling. I took her to the chiropractor and she didn't do any work on her because just simply looking at her and her reactions to certain tests made the chiro ask me to take her back to the er. I took her to a different hospital and they have admitted her. I know someone asked if MS was in the family and I do have a cousin. They are doing an MRI tomorrow and after reading the symptoms tonight, realize that Elizabeth has several of them and they even mentioned some patients had pains described as stabbing which is how this started. I am scared for my daughter and pray that MS is not the problem. Please keep her in your prayers and I will keep you posted. Thanks Margo
