RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Hi there I received an email saying I was up next woo hoo but haven't received anything yet. Please let me know when you are going to send it. Thanks very much.

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Northernflwr,

You must have received that email for another round robin you are participating in. The box of seeds that is circulating under this thread is being sent in the order that Marcia has listed in the top post. As far as I know, the box is just being packaged and sent to me. Then I will be sending it on to ladybug...and so on. You're a couple of people down the list before you will receive it.

Thanks...Heather

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

My husband is on his way to the post office with the box and I have to tell you folks out there that I loaded it.Multiples from my trade list, surplus from the uncommon seed exchange, extra from generous trades, donations from a seed saving neighbour. New stuff ranges from species clematis(serratifolia), native plants..silphium perfoliatum and chrysopsis villosa,asstd martagon lily seeds from a hugely generous envelope from someone who claims to have 100 "stems" in his back yard, through to dictamus albus and codonopsis.....and lots of other stuff. No tomatoes or peppers though....I am saving those for Heather's next exchange. newine

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

You must have really stuffed it in, Newine! I was thinking about getting a bigger box, even! LOL


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

woohoo!! It is getting closer!! It sounds like it is going to be so much fun going through the box. 8-)

Here is the tracking number 47 158 771 601
I checked this morning and it is already in Mississauga...you can check up on it as it wends it's way across the prairies......enjoy!!!!!

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Hi everybody,

Ladybug emailed me to advise that she no longer wishes to participate. As soon as I get the box and sort through it, I will be sending it along to greylady-gardener.

Thanks....Heather


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

What?? Me next??!!(after Heather:)) woohoo!!


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

I'm getting anxious, so I checked the tracking status online. It's been sitting in Mississauga for 5 days now. I'm guessing the tracking function at CP is useless. Can't be in the same processing depot for 5 days right?


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Yes, as said, it's been my experience that the tracking function is pretty much useless. I've had parcels already delivered to me, that according to the tracker number were still sitting in limbo somewhere.


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

The box of seeds arrived this afternoon. I will be taking it to the post office tonight and sending it off to Lois (greylady-gardener).

Lots and lots of seeds in that box :)

Thanks....Heather


 o
Parcel Mailed to Greylady-gardener

Got lucky. I had an appointment cancel this afternoon so I had a few minutes to drive over to the post office. It will be in the 5:00pm truck pickup.

For what it's worth, here's the tracking number 0592 3900 0047 1105.

Thanks....Heather


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

WOOHOO!!!!
Anxiously waiting! 8-)
(not sure how to use the tracking number)

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

To get a status update, just go to this canada post link and enter the tracking number.

https://em.canadapost.ca/emo/basicPin.do

Don't hold your breath though..they don't update it very often :) You could try to sign up for email updates as well, but that's never worked for me.


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Is it too late to get in on this? Sounds like I'm missing out on some great stuff. Let me know. Thanks Cheryl


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Hi Cheryl,

Glad you decided to join in our little "box of seeds" adventure.

The idea is this box should keep circulating, so by all means, come join in the fun. You'll just need to email your mailing address to Kathy Grower.

Here's the updated list of participants on the waiting list for the box:

Greylady
Wendy
Shanta
Northernflower
Kathy Grower
Bdgardener

Thanks....Heather


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Hey Kathy, I don't see that you have your email contact info on your members page. Could you attach it, or contact me on mine as I'm following you on the box of seeds. Thanks Cheryl


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Bdgardener,

If you go to Kathy Growers member page and select the "see my journal" link you'll be able to send her an email.

For some reason gardenweb sometimes hides email address links under the journal section of the member page.

Thanks...Heather


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Well I see what Heather means about the PO and the tracking!! When I checked it just now it said that the item has been accepted at the PO on the 20th at 14:27.
Hmmmmm.... I wonder if it is still there!! 8-) I doubt it.
It will be interesting to see if it arrives before it is 'updated' again.
gg


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

WOW!! I just checked up to see where the box was this morning (yes I know I am anxious 8-)), and it says it is 'out for delivery' in London, so I 'should' receive it today. I have to be out this am and I work this afternoon, and I have plans for tomorrow--but I will definitely be going through whenever I have a minute. I will have it back to the PO by Monday.
gg


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

That is truly amazing! I usually wait about seven days for mail from out west. I ended up not working today after all. The box was on my porch this afternoon about 2:30....not sure how long it had been sitting there. Good job it is a beautiful day with sun and temps in the 20's.
I have gone through some and will finish off tonight. Since it got here so fast, I wasn't ready with the seeds that I am going to put in. I will pack it up over the weekend and send it off to Wendy on Monday.
gg


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

I am sorry, the box did not go out yesterday, but it is off this morning, to Wendy. Since it is a day later than I wanted, I sent it overnight delivery,......not sure if it will be there tomorrow, but it is supposed to be.
the tracking number is: 0408 7190 0036 4651.
Lots of seeds!! Have fun!!

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Has anybody heard from northernflwr? The tracking records indicate she received it on May 12th, but I see no communication since then.

I am watching this thread, because some of the individuals participating in this are also participating in my tomato seed round robin.


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

There's been nothing from Kathy or bgardener either, so i don't know if the box has gone to them or not. I hope they post and let us know if the box has gone its full route this year.


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

I received an email from northernflwr last night. She was away and as of last night, was having trouble signing into gardenweb to post an update. She has received the box, will be going through it today and will be mailing it on to Kathy_h_grower by the end of this week.

Thanks...Heather


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Good to hear, Heather. Thanks for posting!


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Just bumping this up to the first page.


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Guess we're looking for an update from Kathy or northernflwr to see the status of the box right now. :)


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

This is an update from Kathy...

She can't get logged into the "Gardenweb" site for some reason? Why she does not know.

As of this afternoon she had not received the box yet but hope it is here either today or tomorrow. She also seems to have misplaced bdgardener's (Cheryl) address and asks if she could please send it to her again.

Brenda


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

HI everyone,

Northernflwr emailed me to confirm the box was definitely sent on May 23rd and according to the tracking, Kathy would have received it on May 29th. Here's the tracking number for reference 0101360000719783.

I would expect this has been mailed on to bdgardener by now, but has anybody received an update from Kathy?

Just wanting to keep you in the loop on where the box is.

Thanks...Heather


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

We're gonna keep a close eye on it this year! LOL

RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Cheryl, unless there's anyone else who wants it, you can keep the box and get the project started again in the fall, or you can send it to me and i'll do it. Email me and let me know, okay? I'll send you my address.


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Hi all, I will hang on to the box until I hear from anyone or until next fall. I have a tonne of seeds I can collect all summer and we live on 100 acres of native prairie so if anyone is looking for native flower seeds I can include them as well. Drop me an email if anyone needs the box. And have fun gardening this summer. Cheryl


 o
RE: Box of Seeds, Part 2

Sounds good! Just don't disappear like Caleb! LOL Thanks for keeping it, Cheryl. After this summer, we may have to get a bigger box!
