Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

Calling all Canadian Gardeners!!!

I have the box and am looking for others. It is that time of year so here we go. I thought I would put the shout out to western Canada first that way turn around time might be shorter. There once again is some good stuff in the box and might be worth a look through before we start getting all the seed catalogs.

If interested add a post and we will get this baby out and circulating the country.

Thanks, Cheryl. :) I'll be your west->east go-between person. I have some to add.

Remember to put the year on your seed packages, and when you get the box, if there are some of yours in there that you think are outdated, take them out. Also, try to make your decisions and get the Box of Seeds sent on to the next person within a week if you can.

Got it and replied.

I'm wondering why there's so little interest this year? Maybe it's too early in the season for everyone? Ginger, you said you had some seeds you might like to get rid of - would you like the box to add them to it? Can people let us know, please? :)

Yes please! I really enjoyed the experience last year.

I still have the seeds. My intention was to go through my seeds last week while i was off and add to the box (have already subtracted!), but some family stuff has intervened so i wasn't able to do it. Will get at it asap, hopefully later this week, and get it sent on to Shanta. She can contact you, momof4, and send it to you.

Sorry for the delay - unavoidable!

The Box of Seeds is now on its way to Shanta. From there she should send it to Momof4. Someone contacted me through GW asking about the seeds and i can't reply. She will have to contact Momof4 if she would like the seeds after Mom is finished with them.

I'd love the box of seeds as well. I'm out in BC and I can pass it on to another member of FNF when I'm done. She'd like to be last.

RE: Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

Hello, I'm sort of new here. Are there any particular rules to this? I'm only interested in veggies but could add some flower seeds. Looking for things like tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, maybe carrots. Are there any seeds like that in there? Are these garden collected or commercial seeds as well?
Sorry, I have so many questions but I never had an opportunity to participate.
Thanks. Anna

RE: Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

Hey, looks like there were some hiccups on this thread! LOL

Cdnfruit, did you email Momof4?

Anna, no rules - just take some seeds and put some back in, and try for a quick turnaround time (didn't follow my own advice this time, though!). There are vegetable seeds in it.

A suggestion would be that Momof4 send it to Anna since both are in Ontario, and Anna could send it to Cdnfruit. She would in turn send it to Seaottercove who would then pass it on to her friend.

This has been going around for several years now, and has been a fun project!

Hi Momof4.
I will need you address,
Please email me thank you.

OK Ladies, count me in. I'm in Eastern Ontario, Capital Region. Whoever gets the seeds next, please e-mail me for address. Anna

Sorry I was lagging. I think I fixed my email issue. Have emailed Shanta and Anna now. Thanks!

How do I e-mail Momof4? I am interested and have seeds to add.


 o
RE: Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

You can probably do it through her page.

RE: Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

Hi,

How big is this box of seeds? If I add 150 gms of seeds while it's in the NCR, is there room? Can't wait to see it!


 o
RE: Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

Cdnfruit, you would actually be getting the seeds from Anna, come to think of it. You'll have to email her with your address.

Rideau, the "box" is actually a large padded envelope. The original box got pretty tattered and someone transferred the seeds to an envelope. This time i got a size larger envelope hoping maybe we could make it pass as an envelope not a package at the PO - no such luck!

You'll have to email Anna or Cdnfruit, seeing as Anna gets it next and she's supposed to pass it on to Cdnfruit. It heads to BC after that, so maybe you could make arrangements to get it after Anna and pass it along to Cdnfruit after. It's up to you guys. :)

mystery tomato seeds in the seed train package

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone knows/can remember the specific variety of tomato seeds put into a tiny plastic package? There was originally black marker on the plastic, but no more. Inside is a slip of paper which says "russian size". Any idea what variety of russian sized tomato it is???? Thank you


 o
RE: Box of seeds 2012 Anyone?

seaottercove, please e-mail me your address, so I can send it on to you. I believe you are next.
