Hi Elvi

I'm in! This is such a good idea and very nice of you to do.

We moved up here to be close to the grandkids last year, and I've done a little gardening with them, but they are still new to growing things from seed.

Justin, 6, and Jenna, almost 3, are going to love getting seeds in the mail!

Thanks ~
Susie

My teenagers don't garden, but can I donate seeds for all the kids? I'll just send in some packs of fun stuff to be shared with all of them.

My grandson is 11 His name is Stoney Matthew.. He really likes to help garden and wants things like strawberries, watermelon, sunflowers, corn. The others helped me a lot when they were little, but he still does his own at home. He would love to participate.
Thanks, Melinda

RE: NEW: For the Kids Seed Swap 2014

I just saw sign ups for the 8th! Sorry.
My granddaughter Ryleigh (10), has been gardening with me since she was a toddler. She has been looking at my seed catalogs. Her wish list is bigger than mine! She is already planning her garden. She will love to receive seeds.
I also garden with children in a community garden that I coordinate. Much fun!

I am sending my bonus seeds today. In other words, I don't want any back. Have lots of fun things for kids to plant. It's snowing here (and we're so happy for snow) so our Pony Express mail delivery may take a few days. lol

RE: NEW: For the Kids Seed Swap 2014

Hi Elvi ~

The seed packet was in the mail yesterday, but I left it in there til the kids came to visit today, so they could get it themselves. And boy ! Were we surprised ! ! So many seed packs, it's unbelievable.

What a great job you've accomplished . . . you've made the three of us very happy and I feel like a kid, too.

Thanks also to all the other families who shared seeds and to those who didn't get any in return. You are all amazing.

Thanks for all your hard work, Elvi, may your gardens give you extra joy this year.

Love
Susie

RE: NEW: For the Kids Seed Swap 2014
