WANTED: Any interest in a group tomato & pepper seed swap?

Hi everyone,

I'm just doing a pulse check. Any interest in participating in a tomato and pepper group seed swap? I am thinking of coordnating one later in November. It would be for named varieties of any tomatoes or peppers. Would it be fair to say a minimum of 10 seeds per trade?

If you send peppers in, you get peppers in return. If you send in tomatoes, you get tomatoes in return (unless you state you're open to either in return).

I have a bunch of commercial orders coming in and thought it might be fun to coordinate a swap.

Post here if this sounds like something you'd like to participate in. If I get 10 or more people interested, we will proceed with the swap.

"Would it be fair to say a minimum of 10 seeds per trade? "

That sounds fair. Do you want to limit the # of packets of seeds, and the # of packets per same variety?

I'm hoping to see a bit more interest in doing this exchange. I may post a note on Dave's garden as well to see if we can get any international gardeners would be interested in participating.

Mayeeta, you're right, we will likely need to limit the number of packets sent and amount of the same type sent to ensure variety. I'll wait a couple more weeks after posting a note on dave's garden before finalizing. Once we have a good indiation of how many are interested in swapping, we'll know what guidelines need to be put in place.

Thanks...Heather

Hi
I would be interested in swapping tomato seeds for peppers. I have many varieties of heirloom tomatoes. I think this is a great idea :)
