Seed Round Robin

Posted by Lily__Nut Zone 7 OKC (My Page) on

I came across an interesting thread in the Seed Exchange forum. The thread is for a seed round robin. A box/packet of seeds is sent around to a list of those interested. You just replace as many seeds as you take out of the box, hopefully with different seeds. The travels of the packet is tracked on the forum. In fact, there is now a new Round Robin forum they are using to track their 2 seed boxes. That round robin is already closed, but I thought if enough people were interested it might be fun to have our own Okie seed round robin.

Here is a link that might be useful: Seed Exchange thread

RE: Seed Round Robin

I don't know if I have anything anyone is interrested in. Of what I do have, some are saved in envelopes labled "pretty yellow flower from out front" or "fancy fountainy grass". I'm not a total dunderhead, I do have some that I know the names of. What do you think?


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

I think you should join in wolohobe. Wouldn't bother me any to pick some "fancy fountainy grass" out of the box!

WindsurfGirl


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Alright. So how many seed packs are you going to start the box with Lily? And when were you thinking of starting it?


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

K...I need specific directions but I'll for sure do it too!

Jules


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

I've never done one and I'm a newbie. I may have a FEW things somebody might want. I would like to try it tho.

RE: Seed Round Robin

Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in our Okie Seed Round Robin. Please e-mail me your name and address so we can get started. Here are the rules:
1)Have fun!
2)Take as many seeds as you want, just replace them with the same amount of seeds, or more. If you take 10, replace 10, etc.
3)Please label the seeds with as much information as you have including your GW name. If someone has questions about the seeds later, they know whom to contact.
4)Any type of seeds are welcome in this round robin, so include flower, veggie and herb seeds if you like.
5)If you want to mark some seed packets as freebies for Newbies that might not have many seeds to trade, that would be great.
6)I will send the packet to the first person on the list. The packet will include the Flight Plan for our robin. Just take and replace seeds and mail the robin to her next destination. There is a Round Robin Exchange forum and I will start a thread there. When you receive the robin please post that she has landed. When you mail her please post so the next person will know to be expecting her.

Thursday, February 5th will be the last day to sign up for our Okie Seed Round Robin. She will be mailed to her first destination on Monday, February 9th. The Flight Plan will follow the order people replied to the original post. Right now that order is as follows:

WindsurfGirl
Sred98
ChaseUdn
Woholobe
Jules4u101
TulsaLady
Punkiepie
Jamie jp
Kathy7
Back to Lily Nut

Thanks and lets have fun and get more seeds to winter sow.

WindsurfGirl

RE: Seed Round Robin

Include me. Sounds like fun!

Jill


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

RE: Seed Round Robin

what if the thing went around twice? would there be totally different seeds in the box for WSG to choose from?


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

please include me. s confer in oklahoma city. this is indeed exciting

sdc in okc


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Send it around twice....that would be interesting! I'm sure everyone would find something different in there! Good idea wolohobe!

RE: Seed Round Robin

After the Robin completes her first journey I will check to see if anyone would like a second visit. Right now her flight plan is as follows:

WindsurfGirl

ChaseUdn
Woholobe
Jules4u101
TulsaLady
Punkiepie (need address info)
Jamie jp
Kathy7 (need address info)

Back to Lily Nut

I still need address info from Punkiepie and Kathy7. The last day to sign up and give address info is this Thursday, February 5th.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

One more question: what if you have something you think more than one person might want? Like say I have lots of purple hyacinth bean, could I put two offers of that in if I took two different packets out? I certainly wouldn't put in more than two of the same something. What if I have more than one variety of the same thing, like for instance, I have 3 kinds of rose-of-sharon/hardy hibiscus? Should I choose one to put in or would it be okay to offer one each of two different ones?

Maybe I'm thinking about this too much.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

This is my first time at this also so this is just my opinion.

Put in as many as you want of any type of seeds. If you have lots to spare several people may like to have some.
Definitely put in several varieties. If I collect a certain plant, like hardy hibiscus, I might want seeds from all 3 types you have.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

agreed. i plan to put in several seed packets of multiple types. i plan to put in several and remove only a few. i am at the bottom of the list, so i hope that maybe it can revolve around a couple of times.

sdc in okc


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

I want the box twice. When I get it the first time there may not be much in there, or are you going to fill it full for me paul?

WindsurfGirl


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

I think twice around to everyone is a good thing! Or maybe just for the people who want it twice.....LOL!!! I'm excited and ready to roll! I love RR's! And have plenty of seeds to share !

Just a quick word of warning....my work schedule is very crazy with trying to run 2 different businesses that are 75 miles apart. So if the RR should land at my house from Tuesday thru Thursday I probably won't open it until Friday. I will be certain to hurry and get it out as soon as possible though! Have fun everyone! We should have started one back in November! Next year we will know to do it earlier!

Brinda :)


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

From TulsaLady & wolohobe (who is spending the weekend in taloolie): we will both do the second round, but wolo asks to be the last one on the second round before the package goes back to Paul the Lily Nut.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Our Robin has taken flight!!! She is on her way to WindsurfGirl. I padded her nest with 19 seed packets, 9 hand picked and 10 store bought. Based on those who followed up and gave me their address information here is the flight plan:

WindsurfGirl
Sred98
ChaseUdn
Woholobe
Jules4u101
TulsaLady
Jamie jp
ChlorophyllJill
Demodebi

I will start a thread in the Round Robin forum. Please make an entry there when you receive and send on our Robin. Thanks to everyone who signed up and I hope you have fun and get some new seeds!

 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

The Robin is on it's way to Sred98 today! I took about 4 things out and think I put 20 seed packets in! Have fun everyone!

WindsurfGirl


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Oh cool...she should have it by Tuesday and I should have it by the end of the week. I best get busy sorting seeds. I'm adding many pkgs of an unknown morning glory mix. If any of you like mgs then you should try these. They are really beautiful. The mix contains a very pale, dusty blue with pink eye....a pale pink with yellow eye and some lavenders. As of today....I haven't found anyone who could id them.

Brinda :)


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Those sound really pretty. I'll take some out. :)

tulsa


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Where's the Robin at???????

WindsurfGirl


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

SRED98 posted a message on the Round Robin exchange that it was sent to ChaseUdn on Thursday.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Dang, now I have to go and read another forum. lol

tulsa


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Here it is.....I just got home & checked my mail and it was stuffed in the mailbox! Big pkg and lots of seeds. I'm excited to look through them all. I will get them out tomorrow or Monday. I will post here when they leave Yukon!

Brinda :)


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Sorry Y'all! I didn't realize we were posting at both places! I thought we were doing it all over on the RR forum. Thanks LN for letting everybody know what was going on!

Shelly


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Hi everyone!!!

OK.....the RR is ready to fly tomorrow! I took out 6 packages and added 24! I hope everyone has fun and many blooms this summer.

I also added 10 extra pkgs of morning glory seeds for everyone. If anyone would like to try them they are very pretty. I love them, but they can be a problem if you don't gather seeds in the fall and pull the old vines down. Leaving them thru the winter will only result in many vines that you may not want! Please....if anyone gives them a try...let me know how you like them.

TulsaLady.....I also added your brugmansia seeds. I hope you have good luck with them. I got them about 4 months ago in a seed swap. I don't know anything about them or even how old they are. I hope they germinate for you. There must be more than 40-50, so you will need to make room if they all germinate...LOL!!!

Have fun everyone! There are some great seeds in there to choose from! Everyone should enjoy the RR!!!

Brinda :)


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

eek! You mean I could have a brug farm? lol That is, if I work them right? lol Well, as pretty as they are, I won't mind having a few. I'll put them close to my daturas. lol

Well, Tootie (my grand baby girl) got sick here Saturday night and threw up everywhere and many times. She still isn't well but she is starting to hold juice down. They are thinking I gave her some bad peaches. I sure hope not, but then that might be better than something else. She's been sleeping a lot today. I hope she is ok. They don't have insurance so we are gonna take her to the doctor tomorrow if she isn't better by then. Wish her luck please? :)

tulsa


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Luck and smooches to this sweet little girl who stole my heart the very first time I met her. I hope you feel better soon dolly-pop.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

RR arrived today. My mail is late in the day so it JUST arrived. You've all already been warned about how I am with specific plant names, so give me a couple days to look some of the things up. Saturday is a horse show in Edmond, so if it doesn't go out Friday, it'll have to wait until Monday. I'll post here. -wolohobe


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Hope Tootie is feeling better...don't beat yourself up if it was bad peaches...one time I gave my granddaughter a little bit too much medicine and she slept like a log for awhile....it's still a standing joke how Grandma od'd Kelli....I felt horrible....

Can anyone tell me where I am on the RR list?....I'm leaving next Wednesday for Florida and will not return until the 11th....I just don't want it sitting here so if there is a chance it would show up then can we switch my name with someone else's???/...I have all my seeds ready to go but I certainly can't trust my husband to pick out my seeds and do an exchange...trust me..he knows morning glory and that's about it...he does try ... lol

Can anyone check on this for me?..thanks, debi


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Debi - I have the list in front of me - after me it goes to Jules, Tulsa/Lynn, Jamie, Jill, then you, and so on. 2 weeks and 2 days to make it to me and I'm #5 on the list (counting LilyNut as #1) I think your trip will be over at about the same time it gets there and there won't be much if any delay. Enjoy your vacation and don't forget to bring me home a nice present.


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

Thanks for checking......hey, are there any plants down there or seeds I can grab to bring home???...I'm flying...if I were driving I could bring back alot of things....I know I would love to bring back some miniture citrus trees.....let me know....debi

The Round Robin arrived yesterday. Have chosen from a great variety. Thanks to everyone. I guess the plan is to send it around again and maybe this time pick up the newcomers like bookworm. Do plan to add some hot pepper seeds, okra, and little marvel peas with edible pods.

hope everyone is doing well.

I think I've turned into a seed addict!

Jill


 o
RE: Seed Round Robin

LOL Jill....I'm not surprised that they all germinated! I think they are germinating all over my yard as we speak! Do you know that mg's hate to be transplanted? They will look really wilty when you do, and some may not survive. If you have a problem, let me know....I have a gazillion!

I missed the first round. Is it too late to join in on this one?
