Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

booberry85(5)October 2, 2008

This swap is in addition, but separate from the November Cannables swap.

This will be for edibles. No partners will be assigned. It is NOT intended to be a one to one swap or a means of building your stash. It is truly meant to clean out your stash of seeds. Please state what seeds you specifically do not want back. I will look at people's trade lists to see what their wants are. If there are seeds to match or come close to your wants you'll get them. If there are seeds that are questionable, I'll post a "Going Once, Going Twice" where someone can speak up if they want them. To keep the time table moving it'll be posted for 3 days. If no one claims them at the end of 3 days, they'll go to Need 4 Seed. The rest will be donated to Need 4 Seed. For example: I have enough mammoth dill and turnips seeds to feed a small army. If someone desires these seeds in our group, there yours! If not, I will gladly donate these to Need 4 Seed. I don't expect anything back in return for them.

Please sign up by October 24th. Please have seeds into me by October 31(Halloween). I will need you to send me a SASBE and enough postage to get your package back to you. The first week in November will start the "Going Once, Going Twice" posts. Seeds to go out the second week in November. Make sure to update your trade lists!"

Happy Gardening!

Becky

Bump! Hopefully we'll get some more interest. I'm drying acorn squash seeds as well as various bean and pepper seeds right now.

This will be a great way to clean out your stash of seeds and make room for freshly saved seeds. Come on don't be shy! Sign up and feel good that some of your seeds will be going to a good cause!

I was hoping we'd have a few more taker on this swap. I still think it's a good idea. However, there are only 4 of us signed up for it so far including me. I will be more than happy to still hold the swap. However, I wanted to ask if you, Jenny, Polly & Donna, still want to go forward with the swap; or should I postpone the swap until January when there are fewer swaps going on and maybe we'll get a few more takers?

I was hoping to hear from Polly, but she didn't respond to my email. Maybe she forgot about this swap. After spending some time this week thinking about the swap, I am going to postpone it until January.

If you feel a need to clean out your seed box before then, please contact marbles_n_the_garden. She's the one in charge of the Need 4 Seed group. I'm sure she'll happily take your seeds.

Thank you for your interest. I hope this doesn't disappoint anyone. I figured if I do this now, people can still participate in various Round Robins for this month.
