I'd like to join, but...I have a question. Is this fresh = newly harvested '13 or purchased '14 seed? I have lots of 12 - 13 seeds, but might not have my new orders until after the cut off.

Can someone clarify what Fresh Seed means here?

thanks,
Betsy

Hi Ruby,

I take "fresh seeds" to mean seeds that I collected from this years garden. I myself would have no issue receiving commercial seeds from 2012 BUT that's me...I don't know willy's take on that.

I do a commercial seed swap yearly and allow seeds from the two years prior. This year, seeds from 12,13, and 14 will be allowed. I have never had complaints about germination but you might want to wait for willy's response before packing and sending.

Oh Yeah, SIGN ME UP!

Aunt_bess, Our Host, Willy, posted: " You have plenty of time to gather seeds and send them in, they are not due in until February 1. If you still need a little more time, this is fine. " So, I am guessing that participants will stop mailing in seeds during the first week of February and Willy will send back our seeds the third week of Feb. He usually gives us an update when he starts this mammoth task.

God bless all of you being hit by super-bad weather,...frozen or drought. Just sent prayers up for you all! In the future, if you haven't already, please do consider the creation of "BugOut" bags/backpacks and all-weather emergency kits for your family vehicles.

Cryptid,

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. . . .

Just so happens we are well prepared for all emergencies. . .

3 of my 4 kids are army and of those 3, 2 are preppers for the Zombie Apocalypse and they made sure we have "go bags" in the cars and weather emer kits in the garage.

Everyone should have them, no matter where they live. . .

Folks laugh when they see the kits in my car or garage. We usually hear " why do you have those, you live in Georgia, nothing happens in Georgia".

My favorite quote " better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it "

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers cryptid.
I do appreciate that!
This weather is so getting on my nerves. Driving to the dump this morning it was very icy out.. Even my truck is mad =/

My father had us doing this doomsday prepping thing back in Baltimore when we were younger. Part of the old Tunnels from the Railroad went through our neighborhood so we had so much stuff down there.
Of course the mutant rats got it all but hey, he tried LOL.

Having bug out bags are the best thing ever. Its only 3 of us here,my kids are under 9. And their bags are not full of toys and games. =]
They too consider it a zombie apocalypse! How funny.

I am considered the crazy mom in my current neighborhood MissyGA, dont feel bad I get laughed at!
I have different varieties of seeds in each bag too. Just in case. I have to have milkweed no matter where I end up LOL

Does anyone else have seeds in their stash?

Best to be prepared than to be left with nothing!

Willie has been doing these swaps for several years and has always done a great job. I'm not in this one because I was in several others at about the same time.
Willie keeps very busy so I never worry about not hearing from him.

Thank you for the replies. I noticed in past swaps there seemed to be at least some communication from Willy, so was concerned.... It took me awhile to put together one packet of seeds, so I have no doubt that putting together multiple packages would take a significant amount of time.

I've been in two of his swaps. He doesn't communicate much
but he does always send you seeds back. I kind of forget about
it and then surprise seeds in the mail. F.Y.I. next time your in
a swap you can always put a tracking number on it at post
office. Doesn't cost much.

My ultra-fab package of seeds arrived a couple days ago. Sorry I haven't posted till now, but, well,...again, we're dealing with various familial/medical issues that are kind of distracting at times. Anyway,...thanks uber muchly, Willy, and everyone else for another absolutely delightful seed swap! Such a wonderful variety of generously contributed seeds! I promise I will post glowing "Rate & Review Exchanges" ratings for whoever I can;...just not this evening. I have a dang dirty cold (taking Zicam, though) and it's late, and I'm tired. - "Willy, thanks again! You're aces, bud!" :)
