NEW: Acres Edible Swap # 11

Howdee,

Another year really? Wow seems like just yesterday I was canning the last of the tomatoes and here we are with Christmas and New Year over.. Hmm what to do what to do? I could look through that mountain of seeds catalogs again. Isn�t there something I should be doing? Hhhmmm THAT it! IT�S SWAP TIME!!

This will be the 11th year of this swap. Last year we had 38 people involved. Thats 38 people sending in seeds and most all of them sent in 50 packs of seed that with all the freebies its close too 2000 seed packs. it�s a lot of work but I actually look forward to hosting this swap each year.

A few weeks ago I had a hysterectomy so I am going to keep this swap mellow. Doctor said light duty due to issues I have been having so I have plenty of time to sort seeds.

NOW THE RULES

All seeds must produce edibles. (standard veggies, herbs and fruits found in a standard edible garden). If you are unsure if its edible please ask.

All seeds must be clearly marked and packed correctly.

All seed packages should contain enough seed to try out that particular edible. (If you send in packs with 5 seeds in them you will received packs back with 5 seeds in then. I MAKE THIS SWAP FAIR or try hard too!!!

You will receive at least the amount of packages you send in most likely more.. actually you definitively more.

You must attach the correct amount of postage to the self addressed stamped bubble mailer or address labels and stamps to get the mailer back to you.

You must send your full name on the mailer , mailing address, garden web name and email address on a enclosed note. This helps me a lot. I like knowing who sent me stuff.

One person must not send in more than 3 copies of one certain seed.

One person must not send in more than 50 seed packages. Extras will be used as freebies.

all mailers are due at my house by January 31th. Packages will be filled in order of arrival.

There is NO cut off day to join this swap. If you can get me your mailer by the 31th your good :)

All mailers will leave my house headed back to you by February 13th.

PLEASE NOTE! I am not requiring lists this year. No seed wish list no seed sent list. it�s a swap and need to be fun.. Lists are not too much fun. Helpful but not much fun. If you want to send list its totally ok with me but not required.

Sorry for all the rules it just makes a better swap. A better swap is a fun swap. So lets have fun.

Acres

Please post here if interested and make sure I have your email address so I can email you my postal address.

RE: NEW: Acres Edible Swap # 11

I would like to join the swap. This is my first year swapping on garden web, but I have belonged to other swaps.

One of my gardening goals is growing more veggies, especially pretty ones that can squeeze into the flowerbeds.

For other swaps, I included at least a dozen seeds of each variety, more if they are tiny seeds or if I had lots. Is that what people are doing here? I don't want people to be disappointed with my seeds.

I hope that you are feeling better soon.

Acres,
To help me decide if I will join in could you explain this rule?
Packages will be filled in order of arrival.

Does it mean those that send their seeds in early receive seeds back earlier?

According to USPS site, the seeds finally arrived. I am relieved because I have had so much trouble with the post office lately.

I hope that the seeds arrived intact and that I included enough return postage.

Sorry to hear that there are issues with this swap. I have a pretty good stockpile of beans but no Kentucky Wonder beans that I see on my list of tradeables so I'd be up for receiving a few of those packets.


 o
RE: NEW: Acres Edible Swap # 11

I will also take some Kentucky Wonder Pole beans. Thanks!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Ellie


 o
RE: NEW: Acres Edible Swap # 11

Me, three! :)

Sorry as well hear there are issues.. :(

Hope you're healing well!


 o
RE: NEW: Acres Edible Swap # 11

Sorry to hear that there were issues. I hope that mine was alright. If not, please email me right away and I will try to help. I am new to GardenWeb swaps and already getting off to a rough start with the post office losing/stealing things. At least the seeds finally got there! I hear that some local postal employees have been fired, so maybe that end of things will improve.

It is so wonderful of you to host this swap especially considering your recent health issues.


 o
RE: NEW: Acres Edible Swap # 11

I would welcome a small sample of Kentucky Wonder Pole beans. Maybe just 20 seeds or so.

Thanks for organizing this swap!

Been busy sorting seeds and getting ready to pack mailers :) I am not having too awful many issues with this swap. I just do things my way and what I think is a fair trade and what other people think are a fair trade are way off lol. I have always tried to be a generous trader though. :) Well it will all work out :)
