Herbs Galore!

Good Morning GW!

As a brand new member here, I thought I would jump in both feet first and arms flailing about ridiculously. First a little about myself, I am pretty new to having my very own garden. I grew up helping both my grandparents and my parents in their gardens, but last year was the first I planted my very own. It was a simple garden because I wanted to start off slow and didn�t have much money to invest in seeds. This year, I am going all out, taking these dreary winter months to plan my garden down to the very tiniest detail. I am so very excited and thankful to all of you how have helped out by offering seeds through SASE or adoption (thanks again dem_pa)!

Now on to the exchange!

I would like to host an Herb exchange.

There will be a minimum of 5 packs of seeds for any type of herb, only 3 pack of the same herb are allowed.

All packs must be clearly labeled and packed in a bubble envelope. Please include enough seeds, and remember that what you give is what you get back.

Include with your seeds: enough postage for me to mail it back to you, a label with your address, a wish list and a sent list (so that I can try to send you something different than what you sent in), and please include your name, GW name, and e-mail address so that I can track everything.

Finally, the deadline to sign-up is the 22nd and you must mail your seeds by February 1st.

I am so excited and eager to host this exchange (please let me know if I am missing anything.)

Blessings,
Jay

Welcome!

RE: Herbs Galore!

My package, although small, is going out tomorrow. I don't do as much in culinary as I do in medicinal. They should be enjoyed by someone.

Thanks for hosting Jay, smitties

 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

I've just been reading the beautiful book "Heirloom Herbs" and discovered that several of my flowers are also considered "Herbs".
That adds a couple to the packet I'll be mailing out today.
Herbs seem to resist the bunnies better than a lot of other stuff so I hope to try some new ones.

Did mine arrive yet?


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Just checking in for any updates! :)


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Well, I have yet to receive some of your bubblies (I am assuming they've been delayed because of all of the snow. However I don't want to delay the participants that I have gotten, so, I am going to do this in two rounds. Smitties, flowergirl, naturegirl, beth_b_kodiak, and sassybutterfly will swap; and when I get the bubblies from jessew, celeegra, linda, and bramble I will swap them. I hope this is ok by everyone! I'm so excited for you to get your herbs! Blessings!

Jay


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Well, have you heard from the other participants yet? Personally, I think it'd be better for everyone if we wait til all the envies have arrived, but I'm game either way! lol Just wondered if you've been in contact with the others or not.

~Wendy


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

They haven't arrived yet? Our mail has been fine here, but I know there have been problems other places. I've got my fingers crossed-please let me know when they arrive


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Maybe Monday,IT's worth waiting another day or two.
Though, I'm like Wendy, either way is OK with me.
BB


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Well we've definitely had our share of snowstorms this winter. Still I'm surprised that you haven't gotten mine yet. Well either way I'm ok
thanks, grace


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Surprised mine hasn't arrived yet either. :( Thanks for your patience tho....


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

I don't mind waiting if you haven't sent any packages yet. You should be getting the other packages any day now.

Just let me know when they go out. I can't plant for a while anyway. :) Thanks Margo


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Can I still sign up for this? I have so many herbs that need homes!


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Hello All!

Ok so after my last posting, I recieved celeegra's and jesse's that same day. I figured I'd wait until Monday, and sure enough bramble's came in. Linda has withdrawn from the exchange. Now I am ready to swap! I will have your bubblies out in the mail by this weekend.

Just a little forwarning, there have been alot of the same types of seed sent in, feverfew, parsley, basil, etc. I am trying to send you back a different variety, but I just wanted to give you a head's up. It seems we all have very similar herbs. I promise that you will get something new though.

Blessings,
Jay


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Thanks so much for all your hard work and patience Jay! (glad mine finally arrived. LOL)


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

G'morning everyone!

I have some herb questions if anyone would like to chime in... What herbs grow best in part/shade? I have 3 already made beds that were here when I moved into this house but 2 are part shade and 1 is very dappled shade. It's closest to the kitchen so I would LOVE to have some herbs growing in it. Does anyone have any experience growing any herbs in p/s?

Also, is it just me, or is Comfrey SEED really hard to find!?! lol

Thanks!
Wendy


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Jay,

Sign me up for the herb exchange... luv them
peaches
BTW Wendy cilantro and parsley like the particle shade and cooler weather, grown them in the winter. And most of the herb seeds are small so barely cover the seeds when germinating them. Also Tina Marie Wilcox of Ozark Folk center is a expert of herbs, heres her email, wilcox@arkansas.gov tina.wilcox@arkansas.gov


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

I'd like to take part if there's room!


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

MMMMMm, I'm getting anxious now to see and smell some new herbs.
Looks like the rosemary here survived the cold. Hooray.

 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Jay

I was wondering if you sent the envelopes last weekend? I have not received anything as of yet. I am beginning my seed planting and anxious to get the herbs started. Could you give us an update.

Thanks

Smitties


 o
RE: Herbs Galore!

Agreed, I'd love an update as well. :)

Thanks!

RE: Herbs Galore!

Hey Ho Hum!
You can check me off the list...I got mine :)
A little funny though. I sent the reg. envie with my addy on it so you could tape it to my bubble envie. When I got just the envie back at first I looked at it and said "wow!" someone has handwriting just like me :) The seeds were fine, but it sure made me chuckle.

Thanks again for hosting!
