RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Okay,...okay,...although I've never (to my current recollection, at least) participated in a swap as focusedly specific as this, I definitely want to give it a go. Not sure how many "unique/and-or rare" varieties I may be able to contribute of each, but I'm certainly willing to try, for the sake of the challenge, the fun and much needed distraction. Yeah,...lookin' forward to it. ;)

I can never remember how to edit stuff on here, so I just wrote out my wish list and enclosed it with my seeds...is that okay or would you prefer I try to figure out how to update my want list on gardenweb?

I know you are managing a lot in doing this, so I want to make it convenient for you.

RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

We have 19 participants in the swap!
Just a reminder that the deadline to have seeds to me is Saturday, January 25, 2014.
The swap is now closed to new participants, unless you can mail your seeds to me by Monday January 20.
If you haven't already mailed your seeds out, please try to have them in the mail by Monday as well. The sooner I get your seeds, the sooner I can get them back to you.


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

I received seeds from Ohio. There wasn't a gardenweb name enclosed with the seeds. If you sent me seeds from Ohio, can you e mail me your gardenweb name? Thank you!


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

seeds are headed your way!!! whoot whoot Thanks for putting this together.


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Alrighty, then,...my seeds are officially in the mail and on their way as well! - I sent the package as per the preferred GW SASBE standard, with the envelope flap simply taped shut, leaving the adhesive strip intact so you can more easily use the same envy to send seeds back to me. I also stated this on a note included in the package,...which was kinda stupid of me, considering by the time you read it you'll already have opened the package (Duhhhh...! LOL!). Once again reinforcing the fact that my wife is the brains of this outfit and not me. ;D


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Reeeeeally looking forward to sowin' them bad boys comin' my way! :) - I mean this is just total fun, here! You know, being a GardenWebber, joining these uber fun Round Robin swaps is totally the absolute best, as Medontdo (Michelle - aces all the way) proclaimed it would be when I first joined in 2009. The way our lives are these daze, this is the most fun we have anymore, and we love it! Y'all are the greatest! :)


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

I totally agree with Cryptid. One of my trades came when we had arctic weather here in Ohio (yuk!), and I have been stuck inside with a sinus cold for 3 wks.! Those seeds really have been good therapy...dreaming of what to plant and thinking of warm, spring days to come.


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Adding a second (or is it a third) to that! Trading and researching the new seeds is a great way to chase away the winter blues. The seeds and garden catalogs are coming out so the groundhog had better not see his shadow!

 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

I absolutly agree. . . .
making sure all my trays are clean and usable,
checking supplies like labels, milk jugs, seed soil etc.
making a list of what to start first and for each seed tray after that.

I am so excited about all the new tomatoes and peppers, and other veggies I am going to grow this year and the old favs I am starting for my brothers garden/farm.

When one of our kids calls, they always ask " where's mom" and hubby almost always replies " playing with her seeds".

Happy gardening everyone !


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

I am on my way out with the remaining 8 envelopes to mail. A few envelopes went out on friday. More went out yesterday, the remaining 8 today. Please let us know when you receve your envelope!

Got my seeds today as well. Some interesting varieties there. Couldn't really dig in since I had to shovel tons of snow before I head to work tonight.


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Yeah, yeah, YEAH! Now that's what I'm talkin' `bout! My fantastic package of seeds arrived today also, and ultra-WOW (does this date me?! LOL!!), wotta marvelous mix of cultivars, champing at the bit, veritably itching to fulfill their productive destiny. Gonna be a fun growing season, you bet! - Thank you everyone! What a great swap this is/has been! As always, GardenWeb rocks! Major thanks and appreciation to you, barefootgardner, and additionally for the tasty sounding salsa recipe, which we will most definitely be giving a go! :)


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Seeds received yesterday. I got a lot of great varieties and as cryptid mentioned above a very nice salsa recipe. A big thanks to BFG for moderating this swap. I've been very pleased with the thoughtful communication to let us all know how many were involved in the swap and when we can expect our seeds. I can't wait for to get many of these little guys into the seedling trays to do their magic.

My fun little package came to work with me today so I can start learning about the new varieties. As people have walked by I've had laughing, rolling of eyes, and a few "will you grow me some of those?" Thank you everyone!!!!!

 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Just wanted to say that I received the wonderful variety of seeds and can't wait to start researching them all. Sorry, I would have posted sooner but my daughter and I have been very sick since last weekend. Just now getting my energy back. When you break out in a cold sweat just by switching the laundry it's time to climb back into bed. ugh! Thank you everyone for the great seeds. Becki


 o
RE: NEW: 2014 Tomato and Pepper Seed Swap

Becki, I hope you and your daughter are feeling better and the seeds cheered you up and served as a reminder that spring will eventually come. I had a sinus cold for a month, then our son brought another one home from work which I caught and am just now getting over. I've decided that someday I will have a winter home in Florida to escape the germ-infested climate in Ohio. Can't wait until spring and have been kept going with seed swaps and seed catalogs - LOL!
