UPDATE: 'Name-That-Seed' Robin Has Launched!!!

nettasauraNovember 16, 2006

Hello Everybody!

A Note First: A special thank you to mmqchdygg for letting me use a bunch of her ideas for the Robin since they were positively ingenious and do help to protect privacy!

Rules:

1). The Robins have been launched! They contain exactly 50 packs of seeds each, all different to give a good variety. At any one point there should be no less than 50 packs of seeds in the Robin. Remember you can remove as many packs as you like as long as you replace them with the same number or more that you removed. There are also instructions included in the Robins for anyone who forgets them!

2). There are "goodie" bags in both of the Robins...please remove only one item, and replace the bags! If you choose, you can add small lightweight gifts to the "goodie" bag, but this is completely optional.

2). You will be sent a separate snail mail with the name and address of the person you will be sending the envie to. There will be a Delivery Confirmation label included. Delivery Confirmation is an absolute must, USE IT! Make sure your postal worker scans the label into the computer! I have also included a mailing label for the person you will be sending to....USE THIS as I have formatted them for the speediest shipping possible. We don't want these Robins to get lost! If anyone loses their DC# receipt, let me know because I have kept records of all of them.

3). Please leave my return address label in the upper left hand corner. Should something happen and a robin be returned I would prefer that it come back to me so I can send it on to the next person in the robin.

4). Snail mails will be sent out a few at a time, just prior to you receiving the robin.

5). Player list (in order of play) and flight map:

This Robin is going to make two smaller circles around the country to help everybody get some seeds in time for winter sowing. A trip out to the East Coast, and a smaller tighter circle around the interior Midwest and West Coast.

MOMCAT - your snail mail will reflect the change. I am not going to post an updated map because Momcat's & Debbya's dot would be almost on top of each other.

Thanks so much for joining Debbya!

I will not take any more new signups for this Robin from this point forward.

Thanks everyone!

Please don't anybody let the cat out of the bag...thanks Nancy! If you do you will spoil my surprises for everybody else....after the Robins have made it through Round 1, if anybody wants to, they can share pics of their Round 1 gifts. And the same thing will apply to Round 2 since the gifts will be entirely different.

Anywho...feeling all warm and tingly inside...I love making other people happy....and I would far rather give than recieve...just ask DH who gets frustrated every year cause I spend all the Christmas money on him and the boys and leave him about $20 to go get me something with....but he doesn't understand that seeing their faces when they open gifts is all the present I need....

So enjoy!!!

Hello Ladies,

Boy that was fast!!! Sorry for the delay in posting. We left for a mini vacation just a little while after I posted on Friday. We didn't get back until late yesterday, fed the kids, then went to bed. When I took my son to school today I stopped to get the mail, last checked WEdnesday evening, I had our regular PO Box stuffed full and 2 of the big package boxes absolutely stuffed. I had 11 smaller packages, Kayla's imagination library book for November, 2 birthday presents for her, a big box of things I ordered and 2 HUGE ENVELOPES FROM NETTA. How did everyone know I was going away? LOL I just got back a few minutes ago from running my errands and getting groceries, usually done on Friday, and just had to post to let you all know. I have a few more posts to make and some e-mails to return and then I will go through Nettas envies. Will be back in a bit.

Hugs,
Lisa & Kayla

Ladies, I am so sorry. (Beating myself with a wet noodle as we speak) I had the Robin all ready to go and had planned on taking it to the Post Office on the way to the airport on Tuesday morning. We got back this morning and here it is sitting on the kitchen counter with my makeup bag, (I wondered why I couldn't find my bag) I am such a ninny. I promise it will be winging it's way to Kentucky first thing in the morning. Again I am so sorry. I feel absolutely mortified that you all thought I had forgotten you. It was just a very hectic Thanksgiving and now I have to go cook our Thanksgiving dinner today so that my oldest daughter, her hubby, my brother, 2 sisters with family and MY parents can eat with us. It is also little Kayla's birthday today (she is turning 5 today). I am just so sorry I can't express it enough. I feel horrible that I held it up. First thing in the morning. Promise. Please forgive me guys. I love you all and Netta made the most beatiful little robin ever you all will enjoy it so much. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. OK I am going to quit babbling now. Cya.

Hugs,
Lisa & Kayla

So, is this robin back in flight yet, or is it still "haulted"?
Oh Netta, I forgot to give you the link to the "mail fraud" info. Just go to usps.com and you'll see the link there.
Hope this gets moving again with its original material in order soon.

Lisa....did you have your PO worker scan the label into the computer?...it's not showing up on Track & Confirm.

Hey guys....it's very important from this point forward that you make sure your PO worker scans those labels into the computer system. By doing so, it gives you proof that you mailed the package and the burden of responsibility is then shifted to the United States Postal Service. By not doing so, the burden of responsibility remains on your head.

So for your piece of mind make sure the label gets scanned please!!!!!

Hi again, Netta and all other gardeners,
Netta, I just wrote you about his RR on another post, and now I see everything is going so well and super-organized. I so wish I could be that organized, but it just isn't me, unfortunately. : ) However, I am happy to be a part of your RRs! Everyone sounds so pleased and excited...I can't wait to see!
Happy Holidays and will check here for updates.

UPDATE: Candy has decided to withdraw from this Robin. So Julie will be sending directly to Beth....and she already has Beth's info. Beth this throws my timing off a bit...there is the very slight chance that the Robin might land before you get your snail mail...if it does just hold the Robin until your snail mail gets there, hopefully before but if not then within a day or two after.

Thanks everyone for helping to keep this a smooth ride!

Boop(5/6)

Hello everyone.
There has been a delay in the robin, because of me!
Im sorry for my ignorance in not checking this forum to get the right info on how to participate. I never recieved a snail mail so when the package came it was big surprise.
I peeked through all the seeds that evening and picked 6.
All nice trasures and I kindly refilled it with 6 pkgs.
My daughter also picked a bookmark out and I added a gift.

Nettsura's address being the only return addy, I sent it back to her the next morning. Buying a confirmation number
BUT not asking for a reciept. The package should reach her soon and I'm the big dummy that has caused a big delay and hassle for everyone. I'm sorry for the inconvience this has caused and If there's anything I can do to make it up, I will. Happy Holidays everyone!

Hi all...I received the Robin yesterday and took several interesting packs and replaced them. I also added more seeds so now the count is up to 102. I took one small gift and and also replaced it with a small gift. She's all packaged back up and ready to fly to Joann - I'll be dropping her off at the Post Office on the way in to work tomorrow morning. My delivery confirmation number is 0306 0320 0004 0367 7320.

Thanks so much for doing such a great job with this Robin, Lonetta!

Robin B landed today and will be flying in just a little over an hour! The seed count is 57 packs.

Momcat - I have included an envelope inside the Robin with new mailing labels for you so you can send to Debbya. If your original snail mail has not shown by Saturday, I will make you a new set of gifts.

Momcat emailed to say that her snail mail showed up in yesterday's mail so I have let her know to disregard the envie inside the Robin. I am hoping that Boop's snail mail might show up any day now.

And I did use Delivery confirmation on those four snail mails that went out yesterday!

Hi,
Netta won't be online for a few days, possibly 4-5. Netta's area was hit by severe wind storms that knocked out the electricity.

I'll check in each day until Netta returns. So for now, let's keep Netta's swap running smoothly!

Momcat (Deb) emailed me to let us know that while she is having difficulty logging on to GW, she did recieve the Robin and has mailed it out! It should be to Debbya's house by the middle of the week.

She didn't give me a DC#, but this is the record of the one from her snail mail that I have (0306 0320 0004 0367 7351). She mailed the package today since her PO is open Sundays this month so if she used the DC# that I gave her, it should show up in the system by tomorrow.

Let us knwo when you get it Debbya!

Robin A has landed. I've taken a few packs and am adding about 30 new packs - all different and all NAMED!

I'll be getting the pack finished up within the next day or two. I'll post again when the robin takes flight.

Netta,
Thanks so much for organizing such a fun robin!
The package is sealed and ready to go to Michelle.

I'll post the delivery conf # in the morning, when the package goes out!

To all of the players who are still waiting: PLEASE remember that this Robin is for named cultivars only! "Purple coneflowers" or "Calendula mix" are not named cultivars, whereas "Coneflower - Razzmatazz" and "Calendula - Citrus Cocktail" are.

I have now gotten two complaints from players that a large portion of the seed packs in the Robins are UNNAMED! Since I have gone above and beyond to make this an extra special Robin, I have to admit that I do not appreciate the breaking of the rules which specifically state NAMED CULTIVARS ONLY! It is unfair to the other players who are expecting to find a great selection of named varieties, only to be disappointed because someone earlier in the line didn't care to play by the rules.

Therefore, I ask that all players who have yet to recieve the Robins play by the rules and include NAMED CULTIVARS ONLY! When the Robins get back home, if there are not enough named packs to sustain the Robins for another round, I may have to cancel Round 2. And if there are enough to make Round 2 a go...I will most definitely be removing the unnamed packs!

So thank you to all of the players who played by the rules and all of those who will continue to play by the rules!

Michelle,
The robin was mailed out today, by priority. I was originally sending it by first class, but it's too heavy. USPS # 0306 0320 0004 0374 0321.
It should arrive in a day or two at the most. There were many seeds that fell under the catagory of "un-named".. I tried to weed out most of those seeds, but I'm sure there are a few packs still in there that I missed Examples--Moss roses, mixed colors. Snapdragons-Tall, etc.

Tina, the Robin A is on it's way to you via priority mail, delivery confirmation # 03060320000403740314
I took out 23 named packets that I'm super excited about and added 40 more named packets.
FOR EVERYONE'S KNOWLEDGE:
***IMPORTANT MESSAGE***
There are 98 named seed packets in the Robin.
In a seperate baggy, there are 35 UNNAMED seed packets, that I seperated out from the named ones... just for everyone else's convenience. For Netta's sake, and everyone else who is expecting ONLY NAMED SEEDS, please don't add any more unnamed seeds. There are many general "mixes" that are not named. Also, people keep thinking that the 'common name' for the seed is the "named variety" so please look up your seeds before hand if you're not sure. For example: Gaillardia, the common name can be Indian Blanket... that is NOT the named variety. Some people are also using the latin name and thinking that those are the specific variety. So please be certain of what you are putting in, out of respect for the rest of the players. THANK YOU!!! ***
Thank you Netta for a WONDERFUL robin :D

IMPORTANT: Ladies, it is with great regret that I am going to cancel Round 2 of this Robin. I have familial obligations that are much more important and need to be taken care of right now. Maybe later in the year, I can reorganize all of you for a second round, but that will have to wait. I apologize to those of you who were looking forward to this, but there is nothing more important to me than my family. I hope you all understand!

Lots of Love,
Netta

I don't want anybody to think that there is anything grave or possibly tragic going on. It's more a matter of my father is old enough to be unable to do many things (but don't tell him that) and so my familial obligations are more or less going to involve a lot of heavy grunt work, blood, sweat, and tears. Cause if I don't go help that stubborn goat will literally kill himself trying to do it all by himself. And since he's retired and my mother is supporting them by herself, they can't afford to hire out for the major projects that need to be done - like replacing the roof. So if you are going to think of anybody, think of me and pray that I don't smash my thumb with a hammer or break a leg by falling off a ladder! LOL

Hugs,
Netta

I got Robin A in last night's mail, and it's back on its way this morning to Wendey. I took 9, added 11, took 2 or 3 unnamed (did not replace those), found a pretty Christmas doily (thank you to the person that added that!), put in some fun things, and sent it off.

DC # is 0306 0320 0000 6753 4076

disclaimer: because I have such a dinky post office, and because I left my half of the original DC at home, I had to put a new one on the pkg and get it hand-stamped. It will not be scanned into the system because we don't have a scanner. Not sure if it will get scanned once it hits the main PO in Portsmouth or not. (Nice new BUILDING a couple years ago, but no scanner to go with. Things that make you go: "hmmmm.")
Thanks, netta, for a great Robin!

Robin B arrived in Goldthwaite, TX yesterday and is already on its way to Sue in Arizona. The DC# is 03060320000403740277.

I took 12 packets and added 23. There are still lots of generic seeds in the robin, but I left them.

hi
I don't understand about there still being lots of generic seeds in robin B, there were not any seeds marked just "cosmos" or "red hollyhocks". I don't know a lot about plants but each pack had names, maybe they were botanical names ( I am very bad with these) I put in about 40 packets and only took 15, and many of these were comercial.
I'm sorry there wont be a round 2 but I put in all my extra seeds anyway.
happy new year everyone

Michelle, I think a lot of people must be confused about what "named" variety means. Here are some examples of unnamed seeds that were in Robin B when I received it:

Liatris spicata  blazing star (4 packets)
Celosia spicata  flamingo feather (2 packets)
Gloriosa daisy
Cypress vine - Ipomoea quamoclit
Shasta daisy
BabyÂs breath - Gypsophila
Catananche - Cupid's dart

There was one packet of double red hollyhocks that had a sheet fastened to it showing a named variety but the packet just said "red double hollyhocks." I took a few seeds and sent the packet on. They will be pretty named or not.

There's nothing wrong with unnamed seeds. However, for this robin Netta specified named varieties only. I left the unnamed seeds in as I had all of them already and thought someone else might use them.

I use Google when I am not sure if I have named seeds or just seeds with a common name I am not familiar with. If someone puts quotation marks around a common name, the next recipient might be misled and think she has a named variety. Some plants like liatris have many common names: blazing star, gayfeather, Kansas gayfeather, button snakeroot, snakeroot.

There are lots of named seeds still in the robin, and I hope all the remaining participants find seeds they will enjoy growing.

Happy New Year and Happy Gardening to everyone!

Patricia

And in adding just a bit to that....the following ARE named varieties of Liatris/Blazing Star: "Kobold", "Floristan White", "Floristan Violet", and "Snow White".

A quick trick is to go to this Davesgarden.com and do a search using the genus and species (ie: liatris and spicata respectively)....this will not only show you all the common names, but it will have most if not all of the known cultivars in quotes. And non members (like me) can do up to 10 free searches a day. Hope that helps anybody.

Patricia - celosia spicata "flamingo feather" is a named cultivar. If you were thinking Prince's Feather...this is a common name.

A cultivar of Cypress Vine is "Rose Feather".
Some Cultivars of Gloriosa Daisy are "Irish Eyes", "Cherokee Sunset", and "Prairie Sun".
Some cultivars of Cupid's Dart are "Amor White", "Amor Blue", "Bicolor", and "Major".
Some cultivars of Shasta Daisy are "Fluffy", "Alaska", and "Silver Princess".
Some cultivars of Babysbreath are "Convent Garden", "Festival White", "Gypsy Deep Rose".

I hope that these specific examples will help out anybody else who might be unsure.

Thanks - Netta

Hi All,
Just wanted to say as the last person to get Robin B before it flies back to Netta - I will not be disappointed whether there are named or not-named in the envelope, although I do understand the purpose of this Robin. As long as there are some neat named varieties mixed in all will be good :-). I am just excited that it's finally getting around to me!!! Woohooooo!!!!!

Happy New Year's Eve fellow gardeners!

I, like nightnurse,(whom I see used to be from good ole Louisiana) am the last person (on Robin A) before it goes back to Netta. Our wonderful Netta has worked so hard putting all of this together and keeping everything on track and I am sure that you agree with me when I say we are totally greatful. I must also say that I agree with nightnurse and understand the purpose of the Robin. I also want to add that I am rarely disapointed with the usual (or unusual) variety that is generously included in the robins by my fellow gardeners. Having said that, I NOW need to go back through what I had planned to add when the RR gets to me, because I am afraid that some of the packets I THOUGHT were NAMED may not be!!! GardenWeb continues to educate me. For that I am very grateful. Have a safe and wonderful Holiday! I am looking forward to Netta hosting many more of these fantastic robins for us! Brenda

Hi Netta and fellow gardeners,

I received my snail mail package in the mail on Saturday, and was tickled to receive everything in my favorite color...RED! Thanks so much, Netta! I can only imagine how organized and detail-oriented you are in your day to day life. So, that is gonna be one fine roof your dad will end up getting....very well-crafted and done in his favorite colors, I'd assume. : )

Anyway, this is fun, and thanks for the added tips on sending the correct seeds.

Have a great New Year's!

Hi, The robin is on the fly to Mariann, DC# 03061070000511858814.

Netta just in case you recorded the DC# you sent me and this one is different its because I forgot the other half at home and the post man said it needed to officially stamped so I had him put a new one on the package. I would like to thank you and say you are a GEM of a hostess, for all of your organization and the thoughtful personal touches to create a most enjoyable time was really appreciated :-D

I took out 34 pkts of seeds most of which was named and a couple of unnamed also and I put back in 40 pkts all varieties that werent in there and are named.

Elizabeth, yes indeedy, I sure did find a few of yours that I wanted but really thought it was worth mentioning that you were so generous!

Hi Netta & all,
I rec'd RR-B today!! I've been having fun going through it. Quite a few things I had to look up - that's always interesting!
I ended up taking out 20 packets I can use (named & not) & put in about 25 (ALL NAMED cultivars). There were around 4 packets of Granpa Ott MG already there, so I put in different ones ;) as well as alyssum, some veggies, heucheras, peppers, 4 oclocks, sweet peas, on & on & such & such. Netta, I hope there are good things still there when it gets back to you.
I also took a gift (this soap smells divine) & put in a couple more lightweight things.
It will go to penguu : Kerry on Monday. I'll post del. confirmation after I send it.
Netta, thank you so much for a wonderful RR - you put so much work into this and I really appreciate it.

If it's Lemon Verbena soap, I made it. I added several lightweight soaps (Sun shaped/flat) to the package. The entire house smells wonderful after I make a soap batch!

I'm glad to see the robin moving so quickly!

Deb, It IS! And I can only imagine the fragrance of this in the making! You done good! Hmmm.... I may have to find something to trade with you for more of this soap (love the lilac/purple color - matches the guest bath). Thank you for including them!

Robin B has landed~ That lemon verbena soap looks so cute! (Deb, how did you extract the lemon verbena-ness from the lemon verbena?) I've a mind to make some soaps with my scented geraniums.

Last but not least, thanks netta for all the hard work that made this robin possible!

I'm mailing it out tomorrow~ Pam, watch your mail~~~

Hello Netta and fellow gardeners,
I received the package of seeds today, but wasn't able to go through it until this evening. Let me tell you, I had such FUN going through it....about an hours worth of picking, choosing, and restocking. I must have chosen well over thirty seeds and replenished the envelope. If all goes well, I should be able to get this to the post office tomorrow.
There were some really great named seeds in there...and I am so pleased. Thanks to all!
Sincerely,
Jodi B.

Penguu,

I guess I'll have to find out how to extract oil from my lemon verbena before I can turn them into soaps and lotions~~~

Hi Netta and fellow gardeners,
I just sent the box of seed goodies on to Christina.
The confirmation number is: 0306 0320 0004 0367 7337.

I very much enjoyed going through this box, and I hope that I added some tantalizing seeds for those getting it next. Enjoy!

It made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't have time last night to go through it, but will do my picking and replacing today and put it in the mail on Monday. Love the soap and don't you worry Netta there is some left for you too :-). The anticipation building up to receiving the package has been exciting and in a couple of days Robin B will have landed back at the nest :-). I will post when it goes in the mail. Thanks Pam for your additions and for the email!!!

Hi,
Sorry for the delay in posting, but the bad weather we had on Thursday kept me from getting Robin A back out when I wanted to. I got it mailed Saturday morning, so you should have it by Tuesday bogartbaby. Here's the DC#:
0306 0320 0004 0374 0185
I took, and added back, 13 packs. There is a lot of very nice items in this robin, it took a while to decide what I wanted.
Thanks, Netta.

Robin B is heading home! I took 15 and replaced them plus 5 more. I had to take some of that yummy soap! Shipped Priority Mail and sorry Netta but I used my own Delivery Confirmation because I bought my postage online or it might not have gotten out of here this week! The Number is 0103 8555 7499 3545 8577. It doesn't have far to go, so should be there in a day or two. Thanks for a great trade!
