Are you hosting both of the february ones Kathy? I'll join this too! I figure these next months are going to be when I need seeds most, so might as well have fun collecting them now!(or that is atleast the excuse I am telling myself to make myself feel good about joining both at the same time!) Christy

RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

This may post twice, something weird happened the first time I posted... I definitely want to do this one!


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

I've been looking at my list of veggie seeds, and even though I don't have any with the word Heart or Cupid in the name, I do have quite a few red veggies.

So sign me up!!!

RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

We still have 13 days for sign ups. For the lurkers, if you would like to join remember our swaps are open to anyone, as long as you intend to send your part of the swap. :) No other stipulations here. :D


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Kathy, maybe the name thing is throwing them off like it did me at first? For those who don't have anything with Love, Heart, or Cupid in the name, here are some other suggestions:

Red peppers
Red tomatoes, or oxHEART tomatoes
Scarlet runner beans
Red noodle beans
Beats
Red lettuce
Red carrots
Red onions
Red potatoes
Red amaranth
Red basil
Strawberry popcorn
Strawberries

... and then there's white cucumbers, white eggplant, white sweet corn, parsnips, and white pumpkins.

Now I know you lurkers have some of these in your seedbox!

Come on ... you know you want to join!!!

Bonnie


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

also, anything red, white, or pink,,,,,

something with the word sweet or sweetie for your "sweetheart"

something that sounds romantic, like "midnight ruffles" lettuce, oh la la!

Paris Island Lettuce, Paris, the city for lovers,

if you use your imagination, it is really easy to find seeds to fit the theme! Christy


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Well yes, now that you, Bonnie and Christy put it this way I could see myself joining...hehe. I didn't/don't have any edibles that say Love, Cupid, Valentine, or Heart in it's name so I thought I better not join I have no theme veggies...BUT I DO have white ones...lol and RED ones and maybe even PINK ones...hehe. NOW, I am concerned about whehter or not these are heirloom veggies....hehe
I KNOW I KNOW, I am making it complicated...yeap that's me alrighty! Complicated.

OK IF I join I would ask whom ever my parnter is to not send me anything other then seeds. I feel bad becasue I send seeds and then I get a box with other stuff in it...so, I would just request seeds and nothing more, not that I don't like other stuff, I just can't afford to send a lot all the time. oKey, DoKeY?

:) Fran


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

That would work, just let your partner know when you send the email to get the needed info to work out your swap. :)

Resident Complicated! ROFL


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

OH SC1 you are just too bad! You said >>>Resident Complicated! ROFL <<<< ME TOO, YOU too funny.

Oh and did I tell you I also got a reminder email? From the powers that be? It was in my OTHER email...hehe too funny!

Yeap, apparently I putted my nose where it wasn't wanted, hum wonder WHY no one else gets this email for trying to be HELPFUL?

Ok, I'm going to bed before I get another one! Don't wanna go to Disney MOM!

No Becky, I was comfy sitting on the side thank you...just a little water I will dry soon enough if you stop splashing! Keep the water in the pool! LOL.

:( Fran


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Do we need a new game? I spy with my little eye....something in my living room. Ok, you have 20 yes/no questions to figure out what it is!


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Is it the dogs? ;)


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

I joined the other one but I am certainly ready for this one too.....Hooray for the fun....Hmmmm, if I run out of the right kind of swaps maybe I can just rename some of those unknown seeds I have and send them; I would use appropriate names, something like "Maybe these are your Heart's Desire", "Cupid Dropped These" or "Red and White or Blue and Green, here are seeds I've Never Seen"....Wow! Just imagine the surprise and delight on my partner's face when they pull these out of the box..........Hello to everyone.....JD


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

JD, clever thinking, but I think that would be mean to do to your partner.

Kathy, no it's not the doggies. 19 yes / no questions left.


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

LOL.....well, that throws a damper on my great idea...but I bet my partner is really going to be eager to see what type of surprise I send now.....don't worry... I promise to be good, maybe.....heeheehee....


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Is it a princess castle dollhouse? Oh, wait, that's MY living room, LOL!


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

ooooh, do you think we can get our partners for the cupid and sunny swap a few days early? Like maybe on the weekend? I really really want to put an order in but would like to know who my partners are first. Oh pretty please???????
Sorry if I sound like a pain! Since this is the busiest time of the year for seed shipping, I wanted to get the orders out asap. I would really like for my partner to get their box BEFORE Valentine's Day, and thought the extra days made up waiting here for partners might help out a bit if we get our partners a few days early.

I promise I won't beg anymore!Just this once? If everyone agrees, Christy


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

"Is it a princess castle dollhouse? Oh, wait, that's MY living room" - ROFL! No, it's not that.

O hthank you soo much Kathy! Of course, I have no problem posting partners today! That would be awesome! I was hoping to get some orders out of the way before I get lost in tomato seed land for the next 3 weeks! Christy

RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Kathy, ME please!

Nancy


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Fine with me! I still need a couple of things for this swap, but if I knew who my partner was, it would make it easier to know what to get.

Bonnie


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Kathy,

I would like to join. When do the seeds need to be sent and are they sent to my partner or to you?

Thanks,
Patti


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

Hi Patti!

Kathy will give us each a partner. And you and your partner send seeds and swap to each other only. It is not like the tomato swap where you need to send your seeds to a host.

Actually, this is how we usually do swaps here at IE, with partners. The tomato swap was an exception.
It is really fun swapping with a partner!

Hope this helps! Happy you joined! Christy


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap


This sounds like fun, thanks Christy.

Patti


 o
RE: new: incredible heirlooms-feb. cupids heirlooms swap

I'm ready whenever you guys are. I'm only on a couple times a day now, lol, so if I don't get to my partner immediately, I will within a day.
