NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sign Up

Welcome to the Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes Swap! This swap is replacing Christy�s swap. I make NO promises to duplicate Christy�s amazing ability to find so many of your wants, but I�ll do my best to make the swap a success.

Sign up deadline is February 8th. Seeds must be received by February 25th. (cut and pasted from last year�s swap because I loved the rules!)

All are welcome! Oldies and Newbies!

Of course, this is a swap of tomato seeds only. Please send only tomato seeds that are heirlooms and/or OP's, NO hybrids.

This will be a mass swap, where everyone will send in all their seeds to me and will sort and then resend.

Please send your seeds in a BUBBLE MAILER! You do not need to send an extra envelope. I will reuse the envelope that you sent your seeds in!

In the envelope, please include:
1. Your seeds of course
2. A label with your address on it for me to put on your return envelope
3. Enough postage to get your package back to you.
4. A list of all the seeds you are GIVING. You may also send a list of some of your wants or preference of types of tomato seeds you would like back. THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL RECIEVE YOUR REQUESTS! Although, I will work hard to give you what I can. The success of this swap depends on what is sent in.

RULES:
~generally 12-15 seeds per packet, but lower amounts will be accepted
Also, feel free to add any bulk seed or any seed that would be considered extras to donate to the swap. Just mark which ones are extras to go into the pot.

~ Please send seeds that are no more then 3 years old.

~ On your packet labels, please include the following info:
1. Tomato Variety Name
2. Whether they are commercial or if they were hand collected
3. Your GW Name (So you don�t receive your own seeds!)

~ I will try to divvy up seeds fairly. The more variety you send, the more variety you will get back. The more interesting your seeds are, the more interesting the seeds returned, if possible.

~5 packs of the same type maximum.

~ Seeds need to be received by February 25th.

~ Returned seeds will be mailed February 28th.
This has been a great swap for the past two years and I hope to continue the success. Please come and join in the fun!

Any questions, just ask!

Happy Gardening �

Deb (austinnhanasmom)
follow-ups should come to me email, but please PM me if I don't respond to your post.

Thanks for joining Ladies!

I have a question for the swappers that have Ramapo The Open Pollinated One on their want lists - Is this one that could be say F6? I googled it and am thinking that I'm on the right track. It started as a hybrid but has basically been stabilized (past F3). I have F7 seeds, so was just curious...

I'll email me address soon -

 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

Jeff,

Check out the Seed Exchange forum here on GardenWeb. Great place to do trades/swaps. I suggest listing some of the seeds you have to offer on your member page here on GardenWeb so members will know what you have to trade. Also watch for group swaps here on the Round Robin forum.

RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

I'd like to join in. I have quite a stock of seeds I saved in 2010. I tend to over-do it.

I also have some mixes of heirlooms, thanks to my kids. Would those be suitable to send as a couple of "bonus" packs?

Hi Deb, I just sent you an email... Patty

Wendy - I would LOVE a list of what you sent in - then I don't have to retype;-)


 o

Since these swappers acknowledged that their envies have been sent, and if necessary, I'll wait a few days for arrivals before returning seeds.
dirtdiggin
Louise84

I have sent emails to these ladies but have not heard from either. If their seeds are not received today, I'll assume this winter has become too busy and they have dropped out. I know how that is and completely understand!!

clay_lady

Dirtdiggin's weather has moved into Colorado, although it calmed quite a bit!

Have a great day -

 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

Deb, I'm requesting that you don't forward any weather to MN unless it's above 50 and contains no snow. I think we have had enough snow and cold for one winter.

Seeds, Sun and Warmth is what I'm requesting! Weatherman says diffent though for Sunday/Monday.

Sandy


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

Today I received all that were IN THE MAIL plus a huge envie from clay_lady - WOOHOO!

I'll finish sorting and pay a visit to the PO for Monday mailings!

I'll also do my best to keep the MN weather from MN;-)). My 25 years there, though, make me think there will be some crazy storms still! One April, I mowed the grass and then has to shovel 4' of snow - SAME DAY.


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

Did you receive my list via email? Just checking! :)


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

Deb - I'm sure we will easily get another couple snow storms that can dump a lot of snow quickly since March is our snowest month. My B-day is at the end of April and in the past I've received a foot or more of snow as a gift as well as warm beautiful sunshine. Weather here is a crap shoot!

No matter what the weather is, I'm getting excited to see what come back in my envy. I can't wait to sow some tomato seeds!!!

Sandy


 o
RE: NEW: Incredible Heirlooms Totally Tomatoes February Sig

Have to admit - my two day turn around was too aggressive for me! I have half of the return envies done and those will mail today. I'll try my hardest to get the others done today, for Tuesday mailings.

This is my first time hosting and I had not anticipated the logistic issues.
For instance, if you sent Cherokee Purple, I can assume that you do not want Cherokee Purple returned; even if it's from another swapper;-)
If half of the swappers submitted Cherokee Purple, the math gets a bit off.
So, I'll search my stash and try to compile return envies with varieties that you can either use in your garden (I matched your wishes) or trade!

Make sense?

So, for the past two days, I've sorted the specifics from want lists.
Now I am divying up the others, TRYING to keep your wants in mind.
The extras will be sent to a nonprofit seed organization. THANKS all for the extras!!
The envies that are complete are in no particular order except that the initial "wants matches" quantities were closer to the submission amount; and so quicker for me to finish.
Today, I will pick the envies that need to ship the furthest and work on them in that order! Another late night expected.

Have a great day -

Deb

Over half of the envies mailed today and the rest will mail early tomorrow am. I think I have contacted each of you, some perhaps more then once because I am TIRED!!

I hope you enjoy the selections and I honestly hope that they do well for you! Save seeds from the fruits you love for swapping this fall and next year.

THANKS all for participating!

Woohoo! Looks like I'm the first to get my package. A perk for living so close to the hostess!

Deb, you have outdone yourself! I feel like I won the lottery or something!!! Not only did you pretty much wipe out my wishlist, and include things I've never heard of and can't wait to research (after the pepper swap is over, of course, LOL), but you sent my back way more than I remember sending in. Not sure how you did all that, but I am grateful, and you rock as a tomato swap hostess : )

Thank you to everyone that shared their seeds too!

Oh boy, oh boy! I feel like a kid in a candy shoppe! I can't believe all my goodies and a lot were even on my want list! I am so excited. Deb you were great in organizing and distributing the seeds. Thank you so much for it and big thanks to everyone who participated. I can hardly wait to get started, though it's a little late for my spring planting, I'm excited for fall.

Got mine today. Absolutely amazing! My husband is going to flip when he finds out how much of the back yard is going to be turned into Tomato Central, lol. Thanks everyone!

Wow! I got my big package today and I'm amazed at the variety! And as Bonnie said, I can't believe I got so many that were on my wish list, and some are varieties I haven't heard of and am eager to research and try! It was a lot of work to put together and unpack my one envelope, and I'm stunned that Deb was able to do all of them in a weekend! Wow! Thanks to Deb for all the work, and thanks to everyone for contributing.

I received my package in the mail on Thursday. Sassy's right, TOMATO HEAVEN!! I'm going to be in some serious Trouble and I really don't care at the moment! Between the unbelievable assortment I received, what I've received earlier this year in several other swaps that were tomato heavy, and seed from my own stash I'm going to need acreage!! There is no way I'm not going to want to sow a lot of them. I guess more tilling of the backyard, locating more buckets, and planting more at the lake will need to be done. If there's a will, there's a way! Shoot I'm sure a few neighbors won't mind finding a few in their gardens!

Do you think that a 100 variety is too much for one person to grow!!! I think last year it was 60 or so variety, hmmmm... a 60% increase. I might have to re-think this a bit.

Wishing everyone GREAT Success with their gardens!

I received my seeds yesterday. Thank you everyone and especially Deb. I can't believe that you sent me over half of my wish list. I was not expecting that and was super surprised! You did a terrific job with this swap.

Deb, 2 words....YOU ROCK!

ok maybe a few more words: You have seriously outdone yourself. This is my first swap and I am sure none will ever compare. Now the problem is how much bigger I can make my garden without my wife yelling, or thinking im crazier than I am! How do you not plant every single one new tomato seed I recvied!!?!?!?!?

Thanks again, you really made a lot of people happy, and thank you to everyone else for sending in some AMAZING seeds.

I am going to overdose on Lycopene this year!

So sorry for the delay Andrea!! I hope the seeds do well for you.

For all swappers - I've been mailing envies for years now and never has a mailing label been removed, until this swap. Andrea's mailing label was removed - I am guessing very near her home due to the timing of it all - and the envie was returned to me; as my info was under her now missing mailing label.

In the future, I will always remove my info or black it out.

Happy Gardening!
