Hi there Pauline!

I am looking forward to this! We should have a great time sharing and sorting and stuffin' our faces! Thanks for hosting!

I am busy making up individualized packets with the names of the seeds written on the packets to share with those who can come!

Hmmm- I guess I should start thinking about offering the mail in version of the Great Minnesota Blues Seed Swap for those who frequent our Forum- but may not be able to attend... Look for details soon!

I will be there.

Someone gave me a butternut squash in the spring exchange. It did wonderful for me. This is the first time I ate a butternut squash and I love it. I heard Hubbard winter squash is very good too. Anyone has seed for that?

Julie,

The mail in version of the Great Minnesota Blues Seed Swap is such a good idea I am glad you are thinking in that direction again.

I too am getting my seeds ready. My big challenge is not getting to many more seeds for wintersowing than I already have.

Hi Pauline,

I don't have much luck starting seeds, but since you are so close, I will try to make it. Is it OK that I do not bring much seeds at all? I have some old seeds, but do not know if they are still good. May

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Count me in. What time? TammyMN


 o
RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchange date.

I will be sending the information to those of you coming shortly. I just sent the rough draft to Julie for editing. She is the expert on these things and I don't want to leave anything out. Julie, how do you like your title, "expert"?


 o
RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchange date.

Directions have been sent if you did not receive yours please email me.

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Funny that- "Expert"!!
Far from the truth of it I would say- but thanks for your selection of words and deeds-
I do hope you can attend Mary!
Please- if you are thinking about coming- DO! -come on over and join in the fun!
If you come... I (and others) will share with you how to flawlessly, (almost) every time- start your tons of seeds with out needing warmth or lights- with out pesky bugs or watering schedules, no damp off..... None of the troubles you have ever encountered when starting your seeds indoors. There is a way even we here in MN can garden all winter long!! Truly!!
Come on= post your interest here so Zen can send you the details!


 o
RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Thanks

Zen - Yes your email and Mary's both made it!

Need Chocolate Joe Pye and Sea Holly

I can't find some of my seed bags that were harvested from the garden this past fall. Of course nobody at home knows anything about the missing seeds! If anyone has a couple of trades each of 'Chocolate Joe Pye' and 'Sea Holly' that they could bring it would be appreciated. I promised both sisters I would start them some this winter! Hopefully at somepoint in time, by missing seed bags will appear.

Thanks
Sandy

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Sandy, I think I have some eryngium (sea holly) coming! :)

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

I can't make it, I have to work! But I will put up a list of hot seeds when they arrive!


 o
RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Including the maybes. We are up to 18 people. I believe I will need to bring out a folding table or two and some chairs up from the basement. This will be fun and cozy. No need to worry we just had 27 people here for Christmas dinner.

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Ye-HAW was that Dave sayin' he was coming!
Sorry to hear you can't make it Joe- Call in with "Spring Fever"!!
Lynn- not to worry about not having many seeds packed- usually there are a few folks who bring in way too many!! ... not sayin' who though...

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Hi Pauline,

RE: WANTED: Have Seed Exchang date.

Pauline, I didn't get directions, could you e-mail them to me at doucanoe (at) yahoo (dot) com?
