Happy New Year to All of my Fellow Gardeners! And Welcome to our 3rd Annual Seed Clean Out!

It is the time of year when many of us start planning our gardens and ordering our seeds.So this is the perfect time to go through last years seeds and clean them out to make room for this years orders and acquisitions .

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:

This will be for edibles only. These can be vegetables, fruits, herbs and edible flowers.

Please no seeds older than 2008

This is truly meant to clean out your stash of seeds.
Since it is a seed clean out, there is a good chance of you getting less seeds back than you sent in. Unwanted and extra seeds are being donated to Need4Seed, an organization that distributes seeds to those in need. So this is a great way to get some new (to you) seeds for your stash, but
mainly to help out those who really need it :)

Please send a list of seeds that you have sent in, along with a list of seeds you do not wish to receive back. Make sure to include both your name & GW name on the list.
Also, please send a list of the types of seeds you would like to receive back. Make sure to include both your name & GW name on this list.

Make sure to update your trade list and want list on the Gardenweb!

Please send seeds to me in a Bubble Envelope.

You will need to send me a Return Address Label, and enough postage to get your package back to you. So whatever it costs to get it to me is what you should include for the trip back :)

Once I go through all of the seeds, and pack up all of the envies, I will take the leftovers and post a 'Going Once Going Twice' thread. To keep things moving along, I will keep it updated for 3 days. If there is anything on the list that sparks your interest speak up and I will add it to your stash on a first come first serve basis...after 3 days whatever isn't claimed will be sent along to Need4Seed.

I will hold sign ups until January 20. On January 21st I will e-mail all participants my address. Please then have the seeds in the mail by the 28th so they have a chance at getting to me by January 31. The first week in February will start the "Going Once, Going Twice" posts. I hope to have the seeds go out during the second week in February.

Here is to a Bountiful 2011!!

RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Lurking! Thank you for hosting this year Donna. I have a big audit report due to the state on the 17th. I've been tearing my hair out over it. My MIL is out of the hospital & rehab center, but I worry about her still living alone. She had fallen and broken ribs and was quite disoriented while in the hospital.

Other than that I'm sick and another snow storm is coming! ~sigh~

If you need help, I can help (but after the 17th.)

Becky, I am sorry that you are feeling under the weather when you have so much going on :( I am waiting on this snow storm as well....and from what I understand we may be getting a nor-easter next week too.Cannot wait til it is seed starting time again....
I am happy to host this for you. I am going to have to get with you at some point to get the info for Need4Seed....but that can wait until the beginning of next month so no worries there :)

Hi everyone!

Donna, I'd love to join up again! I've been planning the next season's veggie garden and let's just say I have a LOT of work ahead of me getting these beds ready!!! I don't care tho, fresh veggies are SO worth it !!!

Kim!!! I'm so happy to see you on here (GW!) *hugs*!!

Keep warm everybody! I went to walmart last night... I should KNOW better cuz once you mention the word snow in GA, EVERYONE panics and buys out the stores! Apparently pop tarts are a huge seller in 'snowstorms' these days.. who knew!?!

Hugs,
Wendy / sassyb


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

I know I have more seeds than space, so it's time to clean out while they are still viable! Even if I don't get much back it's good to know that someone will use the ones I don't have room for. Sign me up!

Okay, now that business is taken care of...a sadder note from me. Last night we had to have our beloved dog Penny of 15 years put down. I am heart broken, as are my Hubby ,and 4 kids(Penny was my sons, we gave her to him for his 5th Christmas....he will be 21 in 2 months). This wont interfere in my hosting the swap...however I may just take a day or 2 to try to regroup and grieve...so if I dont update for a few days this is why.

RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Donna, so sorry to hear about your doggy. We had to put both of our dogs down last year. One before my birthday (in the summer) and one before Thanksgiving.

It's ok to let yourself be sad. It's amazing how those 4 legged furry children make a place in your heart.


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

So sorry to hear your sad news. My first dog also was my childhood friend that we lost after I finished college. His successor was 14, and my screen name is actually named after Jess! Maybe a special plant in remembrance this spring?

P.S. I have been having some screwy issues with my computer. So if I have missed someone let me know. It could be because my internet keeps freezing up. The problem is, I am never aware of it until I go to post something or click on a page. Then it goes to an 'Internet not responding' type of page. Go figure. I already had to reformat it 2 weeks ago(and lost a ton of stuff in the process) so I am hoping that this will work itself out somehow...okay I can dream right LOL!

RE:The dogs ate my seeds...really!

~Sigh~ The Dh and I got two shih tzu puppies in August. They are adorable and have a lot less quirks than our other two that passed away. However, they get bored when we're at work. They always find mischief when we're at work.

Wednesday night, I was getting seeds ready for the swap. I must not have shut the door all the way to my sewing/seed/Christmas/spill over room. After getting home from work thursday (last night) I found that the puppies got into my seeds. They dragged them out to the living room and had a field day. They were everywhere! I was mad. I was digging bean seeds out of the couch cushions. I have what looks to be melon seeds but no idea of what the melon is any more because the package was in tatters. I had blackberry lily seeds all over the floor. I think the puppies were playing floor hockey with them. At least 20 other seed packets were strewn across the room mostly intact.

The puppies are no worse for wear. So I don't think they got into any poisonous seeds (I do grow nicotania and datura. So there was reason to worry.) So this weekend I will be sorting seeds to see what was destroyed and sorting some to see what can go into the swap!

I know, it's funny when its not happening to you!

RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Donna~ I'm so sorry to hear about your dog! :/ Hugs to you!

Booberry~ My 2 labs did the SAME thing to me when they were pups.. ooh I was MAD!! Ah well, they, I mean, I survived. :)

Speaking of seeds, I had 3 new seed catalogs show up in the mail today. I know what I'm doing tonight!! Blanket + big cup of coffee + my heater and a pen to circle everything I want! lol

Hugs,
Wendy / sassyb


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Please sign me up! I've had enough of fretting over all the seeds I have that I'm afraid I won't get around to using up before they lose viability.

Amanda

PS: Donna, I'm sorry for your loss. I know the feeling. Booberry, oh, so dogs do it too? I have a cat who thinks seed packets are one of the most fun toys ever. I think she likes how lightweight they are and they make a fun rattling sound.


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

The puppies are still pooping out melon seeds. LOL!
:)

I still have more than enough seeds! The ones they got, I still have a few left of here & there! So I don't think I lost any precious varieties. They did get some I was planning on trading though.

I find it enormously humorous that your pups are pooping melon seeds!!I don't know why that is making me laugh so much....but it is !!!Hey....they may be planting you a new garden....don't be surprised when things are growing in strange places in your yard come Summer LOL!!

And I feel guilty about this....but I went in to the pound just to take a peak at the strays(they were having a fund raiser)....and I think I fell in love, and so did our Marco(or so it would seem the way they were playing together). I know it is too soon....but what can I say, I am a sucker for a pretty face.

RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Donna,

That's because it IS funny! At least I can laugh about it now. Don't feel guilty about seeing the dogs at the pound. We got Boris and Natasha a week after Bear died. That was probably a little too soon (I think the Dh was stuck on what to get me for my birthday.) Waiting a month or so would have been better. I love the puppies just the same!

My airdale pup, Stoney ate half my seeds,he chewed through the plastic bags and snacked on my little tresures.Of course most of them where the ones I had the fewest of and really wanted!
Donna ,I'm so sorry for your loss,We recently lost our little terrier,Baby.Heart breaking.
I want to go back through my stash before I commit to this swap.My optmism out-dos energy, so I'm sure there are many I can swap or donate.

Becky - Thanks for understanding :) We ended up adopting the pup...now we have a 7 month old ball of wild energy in the house, and Marco isn't sure if he loves her or hates her. He goes back and forth between playing beautifully with her and barking and snapping at her....it is driving me insane. And I will be on the look out for your seeds !

Wendy- I didn't add a seed pack limit.
Just a reminder to all that this is a seed clean out and you are liable to get back fewer than you send in. Especially if you send in large multiples of any one type :)

Gwen49- I guess the seed snacking is a common thing for pups LOL!!And I will keep you on the maybe list for now :)

I don't want to start anything but I really only want very few seeds back and hope I can get just a few seeds of these if anyone has some...

Romanesco broccoli (broccoli/cauliflower mix)
Any odd colored broccoli or cauliflower
bush melons
bush cucumbers

I really only need 5 or so seeds of each. Thanks Kim

 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Looks like we're NOT going to be spared this next storm. We should get hit with 1' of snow and then maybe freezing rain.
~sigh~

I think this will bring our snow totals for the season up past 120". Another 77" of snow for the season and we can break a record! The arctic isn't melting it just shifted to upstate NY!

Happy Gardening (at this point its all virtual!)

RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

I meant to mail them on Friday on my way out of town, but the PO wasn't open yet. So, my husband mailed them for me on Saturday. Hopefully you will get them today or tomorrow.

Totally OT

This is totally OT, but I figured since I posted my whine yesterday (Yes, I do want cheese with my whine!), I'd post about some good will I saw this morning on the way into work.

It was a terrible ride into work. We didn't get a lot of snow yet (maybe 2-3") but I think the plows are saving their energy for later. So the roads were a mess. Last week, the DH and I traded in 2 cars for a Honda CR-V with 4 wheel drive (Hurray! I love it.) Anyway, I didn't have a lot of trouble but other cars did. A Honda Civic (what I used to have) was stuck in the muck trying to make it up a hill. You could smell the rubber of the tires burning and see the wheels spin (She wasn't off the road. The roads hadn't been plowed.) Traffic was backed up behind her. An SUV pulled over to the side of the road and parked. Three guys got out and pushed the Honda uphill until she got traction again! Hurray for those three unsung heroes. It did my heart good to see it. To give you an idea of how bad it was out there and how bad traffic was jammed up, it took me an hour to travel 12 miles! I know I can walk 3 miles and hours!

Anyway it was great to see some good will out there.

I don't know why it would say it was delivered if it wasn't... ooh this is driving me crazy! I'm sorry if this is holding up the swap.. swap pkgs usually take 3 days tops to get to their destinations, granted there was all that snow somewhere midway but, still. ugh..


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Sassy, I've had things that were shipped UPS or Fedex, and they will show that it has been delivered, when in reality they "delivered" it to my local post office, who then delivers it to me the next day. Since you sent it through the USPS though, I'm not sure what that means ...


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Edibles: Seed Clean Out Swap

Me neither. I'm just frustrated.. I came so close to paying for priority, but w/ all the snow it would have gone thru that may have not made a difference either. I'm just glad I did the dc#.. Hopefully Monday!! :)

Wendy, you sent the package to the wrong person! I just checked the mail and your package is here. Donna is hosting the swap this year though. I'll send it along to Donna tomorrow.

I haven't forgotten you folks...really I haven't.

We are still waiting on an envelope... it has been at least a week since it's mailing so I am figuring it should be here today or tomorrow.

In the meantime I have been splitting up the seeds that have already come in. So once that last envy comes in I can hit high gear and get to the Going Once Going Twice part :)

I will post here in advance of posting that new thread and give you all an approximate time for when it will be posted :) .

I will update it tomorrow night and again Tuesday AM/PM and Wednesday AM/PM....after that what is left goes in with the Need4Seed stuff.

Thanks Again

Is the Going Once, Going Twice portion open to anyone, or just those who sent in seed originally?
