NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes January Sign Up

bonechickchris(7A/6B NJ 08731)December 7, 2008

Hello there! Welcome to the Incredible Edibles Heirlooms first swap, "Totally Tomatoes" January Swap! All are welcome! Oldies and Newbies!

Of course, this is a swap of tomato seeds only. Please only send tomato seeds that are heirlooms and/or OP's, non-hybids.

This will be a mass swap, where everyone will send in all their seeds to me, I will sort, and then resend.

Please send your seeds in a BUBBLE MAILER ONLY! You do not need to send an extra envelope. I will reuse the envelope that you sent me your seeds in, which will save you time and money!

In the envelope, please include:

1. Your seeds of course

2. A label with your address on it for me to put on your envelope

3. $2-3 for the postage. You can send stamps if you like, but I thought it would be easier just to bring all the envelopes to the PO and have them all weighted and paid for at the same time. If you are sending a big envelope with lots of seeds, you may want to send closer to $3, otherwise, I think $2 should cover it.

4. A list of all the seeds you are GIVING. You may also send a list of some of your wants or preference of types of tomato seeds you would like back. THERE ARE NO GARANTEES THAT YOU WILL RECIEVE ALL YOUR REQUESTS! Although, I will work hard to give you what I can. It all depends on what is sent in for me to send back out.

~Instead of swapping whole packets, I would like to swap for smaller amounts of 12-15 seeds each packet, so there will be a bigger and better selection of seeds for me to send out to you all.

You can either send me in your whole packs, and I will split them up myself, OR , You can divide them up into packets of 12-15 yourself then send them to me (perferred!)

If you do send in a whole packet,I will not count it as only one pack, but as however many packets it makes. Example, if your whole packet that you sent to me makes 4 12-15 seeded packets, I will count that as 4 packets/trades.

12-15 seeds will count as one trade each! However, some seeds are better than no seeds, so if you have only 4 or 5 seeds of something, you can send them in too.

~ PLease send seeds that have an expiration within the years of 2008, 2009. Seeds that expired this year are ok!

~ On your packet labels, please include the following info:

1. Tomato Variety Name

2. # of Seeds in Packet

3. Whether they are comercial(company name)or if they were hand collected!!!!!

4. Your GW Name (This will help me not too send you back your own seeds!)

~ I will try to award seeds fairly. The more variety you send, the more variety you will get back. The more interesting your seeds are, the more interesting seeds I will try to get back to you if I can.

Multiple packs of the same variety are ok to send in to a certain extent. If you send me 20 packs of the same one tomato, you might get back some doubles too. I will do my best to not do so. Again, it depends on what is sent in.

~ Seeds need to be recieved by me by January 24th, 2009. That should give us all plenty of time to get over the holidays and maybe get some new seed catalogs in the mail.

I will send out your seeds by February 24th, 2009. If I receive seeds earlier or on time, I may be able to get them out sooner than that.

~If you would like to send in a few extra envelopes/labels to help me in the redistributing process, feel free to do so. This is not important, I seem to be well stocked, but if you do send some in, I promise to send you a little something extra!

I will be storing the seeds in a binder that uses the baseball card sized inserts to hold them in place. So it would be nice if you are preparing your own seed, that you send them in a small enough envie to fit into my binder.

Woosh! I hope I mentioned everything! I have a problem of writing too much! But I hope that makes it easy for you to understand everything. This is going to be a really fun opening swap for the Incredible Heirlooms! Please come and join in the fun! Any questions, just ask!

Ooh, I almost forgot! Once you sign up, please send me an email if you can so I can send you my address!

Thanks everybody! Lets have some fun! Christy

Christy, I am thinking. I ordered a few packs in hopes of joining but it was really only a couple and I am not sure if I can have enough to cover the worth of participating.
I will let you know for sure closer to the cut off time.

Fran, There is no minimum! Even if you send in only one or two packs, it is still worth it! I am sure you have 12 seeds of some type of tomato hanging around! And of course, if you only send in a few packs, you can just send a couple stamps, and not $2. It is really easy! Christy

Christy,

I have a couple of questions. Is there a maximum number of packets we can send in? Is there a maximum of one variety of tomato we can send in?

So far I've packages over 25 packets of tomato seeds, but no more than 4 packets of any one variety. I'm a little more than half way through my tomato stash.

I have been pondering about joining. I WANT to, I really do but the dates have me in a pickle. I usually sow my tomato seeds at the end of December and Early January. If I join, these seeds will be for Next Next year. Ugh...... Let me think some more. I will give a firm answer a little later.

HI Becky!
I would not worry about a maximum. Actually, what you are doing so far sounds perfect!
Hopefully we will have a really nice turn out so we get a lot of variety back in. I think we are going to go do some advertising over on other forums. Also, I do not have a sign up cut off date if you notice, this way anyone can join up to the time their packets need to be mailed in by.
As long as nobody send me like 20 packets of the same one tomato, I think we will be ok!

Hi Nancy! Well, the seeds sent in are to be only good for 2008, 2009. So the 2008 seeds will be 1 year old, and the 2009 seed, which would be seed that anyone orders now anyway, don't expire for a year. So really, I don't see time being a problem! The wrost is that you will get 1 year past seed! I know many people spoke about ordering for this, so I am sure there will be lots of seeds that are for 2009. Does that all make sence? Christy

I totally understand. I have had some tomato seeds germinate that were 10 years old. It is just me. I want to do a BIG growout this year since the last one was a BUST. I want to put them all out this year. If I get the seeds in Feb., it is a bit late for me. And who knows, I might have another bust year and I may give up and won't need seeds. HA! Like I said, I will dwell on it.

Count me in!!!

Nancy, you zone 8/9ers are "tomato spoiled" :) Just sow these at the end of January, you'll still have tomatoes 50 million weeks earlier than most of us. (I know the strain is partly "what do I order and what do I hope comes in the swap". If you want to post what you're looking for in that way - I'd be game to send things I've got on request.)

I am so zone-jealous, can you tell? lol!

Okay, I've been going back and forth about signing up for this swap.

On the one hand, I've got something like 47 different kinds of tomato seeds. On the other hand, most of them I only have 6 or 8 seeds of. With a garden that's only 60 sq. ft., I don't need a lot of each variety. There are a few though that I have a couple dozen of, that I could divide and send in for the swap. But on the other hand, what are the odds that I would get something back that's different from the 47 kinds that I already have, LOL!

Such a dilemma! What's a girl to do?

Hi Bonnie!
You can send in the 6-8 seeds. Something is better than nothing! I am trying to concentrate more on variety than quantity in this swap if you have not noticed. 6-8 seeds I am sure is plenty to try out too for someone! So please send those in too if you decide to join.
If you feel like writing out that list of tomatoes you have, you can include it in your envelope to me and I will do my best NOT to send you anything that you already have.

And that goes for all of us. If you wish to include I list of seeds that you already have, you can do so, and I will try not to give you back anything that you already got. Of course, The more people that sign up, the better my stash will be to hand back out to everyone!

Keep them sign ups coming!!!! Christy

Oh, alright, Christy! You've twisted my arm, LOL!

You know though ... if I send in my 6 - 8 seeds, then I'm left with 0 of that variety, LOL, but I have at least half a dozen vairieties that I can share, and sending a list makes me feel better about not getting too many duplicates. So ... I'm in!!!

Bonnie, Don't feel like you have to send in a bunch of seeds. If there are seeds you want to keep, kepp them! Just send in what you are comfortable with. Like I said, you can send in only 1 pack and still be in it!

And for the people only sending 3 or 4 or LESS packs, you do not have to send $2. You can send your packs in a regular envelope with your seeds wrapped in a little piece of bubble wrap instead of a bubble envelope, and 2 regular postage stamps. That is for people sending in 4 or less packs only!
Of course, I can replace a regular envelope for you in that case! Christy

By the way,
You do not have to write how many seeds are on your packet if you have atleast 12 seeds in it.
I just ask if it is UNDER 12 seeds, just let it be known on the packet, only so I trade seed amounts fairly.
SO you do not have to write the seed amount on the packet if it contains atleast 12 seeds. thanks

HI Guys!
Just wanted to let you know, it is perfectly fine to send postage instead of actual money. And if you know the exact amount of postage that it cost you to send your envelope, you can include that exact cost and not the $2. I only asked for that much because I wanted to put enough postage for everyone's seeds to be sent back in bubble mailers so there would be no chance of the seeds being crushed in shipping.
Any questions, please ask! Thanks! Christy

You are so nice Earl! I am so happy you are with us! I got awesome tomatoes from Earl in his tomato swap. I just hope I can do half as good as you did with your swap Earl :)

The rules are not as bad as they look, I just happen to over explain things! You also do not need to write the amount of seeds on the package either.

I got my New Tomato Growers Supply catalog today! And also the new Baker's Creek Catalog! OMG! They must of made some mad money last year because this Bakers Creek catalog is over the top! The pictures are amazing! If you are a BC fan, you will love it!

This was not the right time to recieve these! I still have shopping to do for Big Don and Little Donnie and all I can do is look at my new catalogs and what I want to order!
I think I am going to need one of the 1-800-Gambler phone numbers for my seed buying addiction!
Ok! I have to find a way to not indulge in these catalogs until after Christmas (yea, good luck!)

The list!

Chris...I'll share these from Gettle-Break ODay, BuckbeeÂs New Fifty Day, HendersonÂs Winsall and St. Pierre with you so if you wanted these, order something else. Let me know.

I also updated my inventory list on GW.

Eventually, I need to add the other bazillion non-tomato seeds into trades or swaps...lol

Welcome Lisa!

Donna, I am sure they will be fine! Its whats inside the envelope that counts, not outside!

Earl,

Are those the varities you are sending in? You mean Gettle, the BC owner? How awesome!! I just got their catalog, and there is a new one, Orange Purple Smudge that I really really want to try that I am going to try and order. Only thing is that the seed is limited, so you only get 10 seeds a pack. But then again, when BC says 20 seeds, you get like 40! So maybe there will be some extra in there too!DId you get your catalog yet?

Here is the new list!

Oh,Well, when we are ALL dirt poor, at least we will have something to put in our dirt!

Oh, Mr. Awesome Earl, who I stole his idea for keeping tomato seeds, I thought when you get the chance, since it is such an excellent idea, maybe you would like to share your binder idea with the thread. It really has made my life easier and organized! I bet you it also helps preserve the seeds longer too. You'll have to tell us how many years your seeds last in your binders!

And my other favorite tomato/pepper seed swap coodinater, Ms. Heather from Canada, I know you cannot post here, but just wanted to let you know that I am trying to wait patiently for your swap seeds! Why is mail so slow from Canada to US? And especially with the holiday, makes the wait even longer! It should be soon though because you sent them out well over a week ago! I promise to let you know when I get them! :)

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to let you know that I am going to start another thread to post who I recieve seeds from, but would like everyone still to post on this thread too so people can still sign up, and this thread will not dissapear. Does that make sence? Or should I just post seeds recieved here? I thought it would make more sence to separate the sign up thread from the recieving list. Opinions? Christy

Chris:
I took the day off but came in to check the thread. I have 35 different varieties stuffed and ready...wanted to see if you eanted any of those Baker's Creek seeds I mentioned for YOU...I forgot I also have fresh Ananas Noir from there. Let me know before I seal and deal :)

Earl

I do have the seed storage on linked storage...also a hint.

IF people send in their list of seeds given and wanted in ABC order, you can cut and paste and in Word...click table and then sort...leave a space between varities and viola you will have whatever you choose in ABC order.

This is the dream machine..lol.

Then you have a list by which to alphabetize the packets and the storage sheets hold 9 each.

Good luck...I'll be back in the am to check on your wishlist Chris for Baker's Creek mentioned above.

Hi everyone!
Earl, Thanks so much for taking the time to share your idea, I knew it would help others out too! How many years do you think your seeds last in there? They seem they would last a long time this way.
I always wondered what I could do to have a program put stuff in ABC order. I will have to try it.
When you got your seeds, did you put everyone's seeds in mixed all together in ABC or did you just keep each person's seeds in ABC order?
I do not have any of those varities that you mentioned, Earl! SO that is great. I guess should I put up a wish list of my own on my trade page? I was so into everyone else, that I did not think to make one for me. Because I am the host, I did not think I could share one.Maybe I will do that then!

I am going to start the new thread now since I recieved 2 envelopes already! But please keep this thread alive for more sign ups!Christy

40+ varieties went out to you today. Many have 2-5 packets of 12...but I did not separate those over 12...so you can pack the numbers you wish in those, the rest have 12 seeds in them.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...OMG...I forgot postage...I'll send that in an envelope...oops!

Hey Christy , hope you are enjoying your holiday!!

I just went to USPS.com to figure postage, and stuck a bunch of stamps on my envy (extra postage just in case,LOL) and threw a couple bucks, for postage back, in the envy.Now I am going to tell the hubby to take the dogs out for a walk....and stop at the mailbox to get this flying.
I just dont have the energy to go to the Post Office for a while LOL!

And I have a feeling Earl has a bunch of interesting varieties to add to this swap...I cant wait for this swap to find it's way back home to me!!!
*Doing the excited dance!!*

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!

Hey, on a side note, anyone here ever tried the square foot gardening method by mel bartholomew? I have been reading his new book, and curious if it is really as good as it sounds? I am trying to find ways to get more out of my garden space. Any opinions? Maybe I can find a forum on this? I use so much space planting tomato plants, and I really want to get more of my other crops in this year. Christy

Just to let you know I will be putting a couple of tomato seed orders in by the end of the week. I waited this long so I can try and to get some that are on some peoples wish lists that noone has.
So if your lists come in by the end of the week, I can take a peek before I order. Not a big deal though.

I have tried to post twice, but some reason the posts did not stick. I am interested in joining if it is still open. I already even got my seeds ready to be sent. Let me know if I am too late.

Seeds need to be received by me by January 24th, 2009...Chris stated so yeahhhhhhhhh, send them.

But leave off your name or use one of our nicknames...Christy really likes confusion :) and ZZTop.

Sure hope my big seed trades come in...I traded like mad over Christmas break because I had time.

Maybe use a translator and send everything in Finnish or Ukranian...hmmm, am I mean Christy?

boobery - It's the computer's version of Russian. Looks like it translated into a version that programs could uderstand due to most of the symbolic style of characters not being available in programs like notepad etc.
