NEW: 'Best of 2009' quick seed swap

poisondartfrogOctober 30, 2009

Oh no! There is a lag between seed swaps. Am I the only one who misses all that harvesting, labeling and packing? I've sent in seeds to all the currently posted seed swaps I joined so I thought I would do a fast turn around swap based on best performers for 2009.

If there is enough interest (10 or more participants) here are the rules:

1. Sign up by November 10.

2. Seeds sent to me must be postmarked on or before November 28.

3. I will mail them back out by December 10.

4. No more than 3 packs each of any varieties that were top performers in your garden this season. The seeds can be from your garden or commercial seeds no older than 2008 harvest.

5. Any type of seed works as long as it did well for you; flowers or other ornamentals or vegetables. I will try to send back to you proportionally. In other words, if you send mostly veggies, you will get back mostly veggies. If you send mostly ornamentals, that is what you will receive, subject of course to what is sent in.

6. There is no minimum number of packs but the upper limit is 50 packs total. You will receive back the same number of packs you send in.

7. If you want to post a short wish list on the thread that's fine, but definitely not required. It might help people decide what to send and help me with the sorting later.

8. Send postage with your seeds equal to the amount of postage required to send your envelope to me.

I will wait to see if there is enough interest before I contact everyone with my address. If and when 10 participants sign up I will email my address to everyone.

In the meantime,

Alana

Shady, teri and me would make 3.
Teri,you don't need 50 different ones. You can send up to 3 packs of the same thing with the overall total not over 50.
I will check back in tomorrow to see how we are doing.

Hi Alana, I'll join in this one too. I'm just about to send out "What's Left" so I'll be good to go for another. I've got another whole boxful of newly collected and dried seeds that I really didn't touch for any other swap yet. So that will be good here.

Over the last couple of days I have received seeds from farmergirl2009, conniesc, colcol, daisyb, slo_garden and one other person with zip code 48848. 48848 does not have the member name on the envelope or the seed packs and I don't recognize the name. Please post or email and let me know who you are so I can give you credit for having sent your seeds.
Everyone else has until Nov 28 to get your seeds in the mail. I will be away for a few days, but will post any updates on Wednesday.

Hi Alana,
My seeds are in the mail! I've "tagged" some with the IDs of people who had them on their want list, but you can just remove the tags and give them to anyone you like if you have doubles.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Sorry Lynn-I have been away. Mail tomorrow if you like. I won't be sorting until Sunday and they should make it in time. I have received several packages over the weekend. I don't have time to open them tonight to verify GW names, but I will post the details tomorrow.
Have a good evening!
Alana

Alana-
I do hope you are having a wonderful time sifting and sorting and smiling while you are re packaging our return envelopes!
You and all who sent seeds in are sure to be pleased with their new treasures in their gardens next spring!
Thanks again for hosting this 'Best of 2009' swap!

I have clay_lady's seeds now.
My crystal ball indicates a busy weekend with lot's of hot cocoa and spiced tea. The high temps for the next two days are not supposed to get out of the 40's...perfect timing for a seed sorting marathon.
Have a great weekend!

The sorting is mostly finished! I should have no trouble having all of the packages back on their way by Thursday.
I tried very hard not to send you back your own seeds. I hate when that happens. I cannot promise that you will not receive seeds the same as or similar to something you sent in. There were 5-6 types of seeds that almost everyone sent in; hardly surprising since we were focused on top performers, but it did make for a lot of duplicates.

I also learned some things about hosting a seed swap that I will use if I decide to do this again next year-one key instruction to participants and several organizational upgrades included. I truly appreciate your giving me the opportunity.

I did not receive seeds from 4 folks who signed up (well, probably 3, in fact. I received seeds from a zip code that were never identified and I will be sending back to that same zip)

Here is how we finished:
shadyside-none
tergrov -seeds received
suecirish -seeds received
ishareflowers -seeds received
ryanr -seeds received
micrey -seeds received
beverlysc -seeds received
dirtdaddy-seeds received
gee_oh_nyc-seeds received

More seeds are on their way today. Many of you may notice that you have received a few more packs than you sent. A few generous gardeners sent over 50 packs so that I could beef up the envelopes of those who did not send in as many and a couple of folks sent in 50 but requested to receive fewer than that in return.
I expect to be too busy tomorrow to mail another round, but will post the final zip codes on Thursday after I get them all in the mail.
Here are today's:

I know I mailed yours; it was in the box I took to the P.O. I must have missed copying the zip down. I will be watching for you to post that you received it to be absolutely certain it gets there.

I received my seeds yesterday and what a wonderful assortment of seeds to try! For someone who only had 7 or 8 different kinds of seeds, I will now be able to try 35 different ones! This was one of the nicest Christmas gifts I have received. Thank you so much Alana for doing this. You are so very thoughtful to use your time and talents to do such a nice thing for all of us. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Wow Alana! I couldn't be happier! Thanks for the careful selection. Can we add "mind-reading" to your list of skills? I got seeds I hadn't even thought to ask for but as soon as I saw them I said, "oh yeah I was meaning to ask for that." Maybe mind-reading is something that many of you share since you all sent in such great seeds. Thanks for your generosity everyone. What a wonderful way to chase away some winter dark and to get into the holiday spirit.
Blessings,
George

Thanks Alana. You did a great job. I received many selections from my wish list as well as some I thought about adding and did not. Thank you also for the generous amount of seeds. It is making a dark, rainy Ohio night pleasant, as I Plan next years gardens. Thanks also to all who shared a part of their gardens with the rest of us.

You did an awesome job, Alana! I'll be sure and sign up for the 2nd Annual Quick Seed Swap in 2010...if you'll have the interest to coordinate one again!

Have a wonderful holiday season and a Blessed New Year! - Thanks again! - Lisa
