3rd annual seed train

rollinrockell(9)October 13, 2013

hello every one, its time again for the third year of the seed train. I hope you had a great summer and that your gardens were plentiful, as fall starts to set in its time to get back to seeds trading when the weather outside is cold and your looking forward to spring again. I got lots of new seeds this year from all the great trades and cant wait to share them with you. There will be a few rules tweaks this year and instead of a bunch of small rounds there will be two big rounds so everyone gets a turn. I will post the rules and sign up dates tomorrow. Everyone is welcome to join.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
rollinrockell(9)

Here are the rules. Thanks.
1. Everyone from any state is welcome to join.
2. All seed train members will need to supply me with name and garden web name to avoid confusion and address thru pm, your garden web name and address will be on a list, which will be enclosed in the seed box. In addition, I will need an e-mail address where you can be easily
reached
2. Seeds only please, no bulbs as this makes the weight go up
3. Each person is responsible for paying to ship the seeds to the next person.
4. Please package seeds in paper envelopes or seed envelopes again, to save on weight and postage.
5. All seeds are welcome, from commercial packages to home saved.
6. Please post when you receive the box so we know you received it.
7. Likewise please post when you ship the box. That why the next person knows it being shipped to them.
8. If I can't contact the next person in line via forum, email. They will be skipped.
9. Please try to send the box on as quickly as possible,
within a week at most, so that the train can make at least a couple circuits.

  1. Take as much as you would like from the box and replace with a like amount of seed.
  2. there will be two rounds , if you donâÂÂt make the first round, ill add you to the second round so the train doesnâÂÂt get stalled.
    please feel free to contact if any more information is needed.
    Ill give sign ups until the second of November and hopefully ship the following monday

Just wondering if you have any date stipulations on seeds or minimum quantities of varieties?

i would say nothing past 2010 unless you know they do in fact grow and are viable, i still have some tomatoes seeds from 2009 that grow just fine. there is not min quantities of variety , the main rule is that what ever you take out, you put back the same amount of seeds to keep the train going. even if that may be 5 seeds of one kind and ten of another.

The package is filled - and ready to go out to Travis!
I had a lot of fun going through it, and choosing/replacing seeds. :)
I'll mail it priority Monday. Thanks so much for allowing me to join!

Travis, be prepared to go through a fat little round robin envelope!
I'll post the delivery conf # after I return home from the post office! Our post office was closed today- due to the weather! Lots of snow- it's been snowing continually for 2 days.

Hi jplayland -- You haven't been skipped. We are just finishing Round 1 of the Seed Train. Looks like you are included in Round 2 and will be just before me in that round. Round 1 began its trip in November and finally got to me -- the last on the list before it goes back to the originator (host), Then we will be starting Round 2.

Rachel -- With any luck, I will be going to the Post Office this afternoon. I will post the tracking number once it is known.

I signed up for round 1 back in november, so I believe something got confused. I've been waiting paitiently, it would be a nightmare to still be at the bottom of the list.

im sorry for the confusion jplay. i have sent you an email.

8. forgetmenot_orlando

  1. gardnwatch

have not responded for a second round so i going to switch them with elvi and kelly from last year, welcome back.

the list about that i keep changing is the order that it will be going in, i keep changing it when people leave and join. the final copy that i wont change will be emailed to everyone when i ship out the box as well as being in the box.

i cant flip the list so that the last person goes first this time because it would be pointless for the last person to ship it to me and then i ship it back to them as they wouldn't get the benefit of all the different things in the box if that makes sense

will be looking for it , thanks ForeverRecycleReuse

ARGH. My new stupid $20 mini greenhouse/seed starter stand collapsed overnight. The peppers, tomatillos, and eggplants faired well in thier larger pots and lower shelves. The tomatoes, well what remains, I no longer know what varieties they are. Luckily it's only a two week delay and I will save what lives through it. I guess tonight I plant another flat of tomatoes and I go back to menards to get plastic wrap to apply to a real shelving unit. It had four flats, a heat mat and two small grow lights.

There were tomato plants everwhere. 96 tomato plants fell 6 ft and one flat exploded plants and cubes outward in a 4ft debris field.

JPlayland,
I am so sorry to hear about your seedlings mishap. I had that happen last year. I scooped up as many babies as I could and just planted them in pots labeled " mystery tomato" and started new seeds. some of the mystery plants were the best producers and I was able to identify about 2/3's of them as their fruit matured.

I hope you are as fortunate in your growing.

im sorry, time has been flying by, I didn't realize how many days have passed. paperfinch said on the 7th in an email that she was shipping it the next day and would post the tracking number. the only thing I can think of at the moment so every one gets to participate is cut the list in half and start a second box. that is if the first box stops stalling.

I always manage to get at least half my tomato's mixed up before I plant them. I need a better system other then tape and pen. I used pencil and popsicle sticks this year so well see. but it makes it more fun sometimes.

rollinrockell,

I had the same problem the last two year. I now have all my seed trays marked using a paint pen and /or duct tape. I keep a chart of what is planted in each "6pack" tray. It seems to be helping. I pre-made some markers for the garden with white plastic spoons and paint pens too. Hoping I don't have any "mystery" plants this year.

So sorry, guys! I have been terribly sick in bed with a flu and high fever in bed for over a week. I shipped the seeds as soon as I physically could, and added lots of fun stuff to make up for the wait. They should be at their next destination today, according to what I was told at the Post Office.
