update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

New Wanted Swap! You will look at members who sign up for this swap list, then choose items from their list to send them. Please make sure it is on someone’s want list, ALTHOUGH extras can be sent in and be given at random. The plan is to have seeds sent in from your want list, I can not predict how many will come for you. So if you send in 150 then you may only get 60 sent in for you. IF there are enough extras sent in I will make it up, if not I may not be able to cover you. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS, my stash IS limited at the moment. Remember, this is based on the packets sent in to you, although I would like for it to be fair I have no control over who sends to whom, OR how many extras may be sent in.

1. There will be no limit on the amount of seeds you send in. However, they must be marked with the person they are for, either by a number they will be matched too OR their GW name, extras that maybe included could be placed in a zip baggie with EXTRAS listed on it. This will be used to fill in any gaps there maybe in make-up returns. IF you do not want the number you send in returned to you then PLEASE let me know in your package.

2. You will get the seeds sent in to you UNLESS there are 5 packs of the same thing THEN they will go in a duplicate bowl and distributed among everyone.

3. You will have until Jan. 31 to sign up and the envies must be sent to me by Feb. 20 this will give everyone time to update their list.

4. YOU MUST HAVE A WANT LIST!!!! IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE ON YOUR HAVE LIST BUT THE WANT LIST IS A MUST! Otherwise no one will know WHAT to send you! IF YOU PLAN TO SIGN UP PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE YOUR WANT LIST…you will have time to update BEFORE sending but PLEASE at least have something for us to look at.

5. This will be for packets received only, I will ‘try’ to match your returns with the number you send in, HOWEVER, I have no control over the number actually sent so you may only have a few packets sent to you, which will be available for return. UNDERSTAND THIS IS A ‘GIFT’ TO OTHERS SWAP.

6. Please send in a bubble envy with enough postage to send back to you. If it cost you 4 stamps to send to me then please include at least 4 stamps back. MY POST OFFICE IS ONE THAT TENDS TO OVERCHARGE HOWEVER (irks me too!) But I will handle that I guess.

7. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SEND IN TO ME BY FEB. 20th I plan to have these back to you by March 7 before then IF everyone sends in on time. BUT I would really like to have them back to you no later then the first week of MARCH. MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE YOUR LIST AFTER YOU RECIEVE FROM ANY OTHER SWAPS YOU ARE IN UNLESS YOU WANT DUPLICATES OF WHAT YOU ALREADY RECEIVED.

8. HAVE FUN!!! If you have a specific question you may ask it here.

9. Limited or HARD to come by seeds may be a lower number, but if you have plenty of something please include a good amount just in case some have trouble starting seeds. Large seeds of course 15 to 25 would be ok, like bean seeds. OK?!

Also this will give you some time to get some things Winter Sown and maybe you can share some of what you might have left over and it will allow you to receive some more last minute wants in time to STILL winter sow them!!!

OK, marking seeds for the person they are intended for, you can either tape them to an index card and list the seeds such as:

1. Dianthus "Siberian Blues"

2. Aquilegia/Columbine ‘Ruby Port’

OR you can type them to a sheet of paper with your list

OR you can simple place them in a baggie with a list and name of whom they are for.

OK, I think I have covered a lot, I hope! Please sign up! Thanks, I look forward to hosting for you!

---------------------------------------Original Post ABOVE---------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------Added Swap info BELOW---------------------------------------------

NOTE: When your mail you bubble mailer to me, you also need to include an address label for returning to you and a list of what you sent in so I can make sure NOT to resend your seeds back to you if there are any extras to send back to anyone.


FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WILL BE UPDATING AFTER RECEIVING SWAP PACKAGES PLEASE POST ON THE THREAD WHEN YOU HAVE UPDATED SO THAT WE WILL KNOW TO GO LOOK AT YOUR TRADE PAGES AGAIN BEFORE MAILING OUT...THANK YOU


REMEMBER GET YOUR TRADE PAGES STARTED IF THEY ARE BLANK, and those of us who are in the other swaps we will be updating a little later so let's try to wait and send in until we can check those members list.

Those of us who are in other swaps will POST TRADE PAGE UPDATED when we change our info!


NOTE: No one needs to start sending out until around the 7 or 8 of Feb, that way this will give them time to look at those of us list that have been updated from the other swaps.

SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR LIST ARE UPDATED AS SOON AS YOU CAN GET THEM DONE BEFORE MAIL OUTS STARTS!!!!
IF you don't mind getting doubles of something you already received then PLEASE leave it listed as a want!

I will do my best to make sure you get as many back as you send in. ALSO if you want all flowers or all veggies or a mix then make sure I know this too so I can send you back what you are really wanting.



I would have my trade page updated by no later then Feb 10. This still gives everyone time to check your list and mail to me. I would like to be able to mail your envies back to you by the last week of Feb. IF some of you will be a little late sending to me this is ok, BUT I would really like to get them back to you by the 1 first week of March.

I want to add that anyone can add to their list as much as they like. It was suggested in the other swap group (as suggested by agirlsgirl, Thank you dear great idea btw) to post the date you newly updated like if you added Carrots: Purple Dragon and Carrots: Thumbelina and Artichoke: Globe you would post your update like this:

01/13/09

Artichoke: Globe

Carrots: Purple Dragon

Carrots: Thumbelina


This makes it easier on those who have already checked your list to find your updated information.

Ok, about marking packs for someone else. I suggested using an index card and writing down the seeds with the persons # number and name on the top BUT this is not mandatory, you can put them in a baggie is you wish like those sandwich baggies that either fold over or zip lock. IF you use the fold over baggies make sure you secure them so that the seeds don't fall out and then you can tape a piece of paper to the baggie with the person name and #number example: #1 NCGardengirl this will let me know who it is for.

Be SURE when you send your seeds in you let me know your GW name and your number assigned to you because I will be going by the number list we have going. It just makes it easier to look at the number then try to hunt a name. Which is the reason I also am asking you to use the number# assigned to each person.

Again, if you have questions PLEASE ask them.

It was suggested to me that we should hold one of these swap more than once a year. Would there be any interest in may having another one? Possibly every four months? Schedule would have to be worked out later. If you think you might be interested in something like this please EMAIL me about it.

Ok, in this swap Everyone WILL get what is sent in for them UNLESS:
1. They remove it from their list AFTER it was mailed in.
2. Say I have Mexican Flame Vine on my list 5 ppl send me 10 seeds each of this plant... I DON'T need that many and 3 other ppl asked for it and no one sent any in for them I will allot at least 1 pack each to the others and MAYBE keep 2 for myself. IF however someone should receive 5 packs of the same thing I will dole out 2 packs to them and put the rest in a extras bowl to give to whoever MIGHT like them.
OR I will be posting games and use those extras as prizes IF ya'll would like to play games in this thread.
3. If they specifically tell me NO doubles.
REMEMBER you CAN send in extras if you wish, MEANING NOT DEESIGNATED SPECIFICALLY FOR SOMEONE. THOSE will be put in a bowl and given a random like I will come on here and say we have 3 packs of Candy Striped Zinnia the first 3 to GRAB them will get them in there envies. And so the first 3 to request them will find those extras in there envies :).
OK? Any other questions? Just ask!

OK, I had another question asked via email:
Fran, I saw the recent postings about what happens with seeds that are sent in to you.
You said that we would get the seeds that are sent in for us unless it is removed from your wish list after it has been sent in. I was wondering about all the postings where people had a surplus of seeds and asked if anybody wanted any of those. People were just replying saying "yes, I've some some of this and that". In a few cases, private emails have been passed along to see if someone might be interested in seeds that are close to something on their wish list.
Are people supposed to be adding these items to their wish list as they respond to postings or emails saying they'd like those seeds set aside for them? If so, I'd better do that myself, but I don't think people will have been doing that yet (ie my posting for various seeds...I haven't seen anyone update their wish list when they said they'd like those seeds...not sure they're aware they should be doing that).
Make sense?
Let me know your thoughts.

ANSWER TO THIS IS: When you make a post to offer seeds and someone request them YOU as the poster are now resposible for making sure those seeds are marked for that person since this is a special request OR offer then YOU must also put on that pack as per requested offer.
OR something to that effect to let me know these seeds are a special request and MUST go to the intended person.
If you made it through a private email same thing let me know some how these seeds must go to this intended person.

Anyone that has a way to make this easier please feel free to post your method what works for me may not work for someone else but yours might!

Question I have been asked twice now: Is it ok to use or send in Commercial packs? Yes, commercial packs are fine. A lot of mine are commercial packs and I have split them up to share with others, as a matter of fact I have ordered some specific seeds because they were on want list.
My garden was new in 2008 so no seeds really to gather.
I personally don't know anyone who would say NO commercial packs allowed for me, UNLESS they are totally organic and are not sure where the seeds came from. Other then that I would say commercial seeds are fine.


If you are concerned with updating your page in time after you get your swap packages back I have a quick solution: BEFORE you open you package go to your want/have page change window: As you are pulling out your new seeds to see what you have make the changes then, IF you plan on moving them to your haves (which I personally wouldn't I would open note pad or other program and transfer them there, WHY? because might not have enough to share BUT still want a record of new seeds) or you might just want note out beside some or all that you received these seeds AND if doubles of this one are wanted go ahead and note that then too.

YES I KNOW HOW EXCITED YOU WILL BE AND THIS MIGHT SEEM LIKE AND IMPOSSIBLE TASK BECAUSE OF YOUR EXCITEMENT BUT some of us are gonna be posting what we got in return so this will be taking care of two things at once because you will be updating your page AND you can be making your list all at the same time!

REPOST OF Important info
Yes, I would like to address this issue too, many of you have nothing on your list.
Are you not checking in here to read at all? WE NEED A LIST TO SEND TO YOU...PLEASE UPDATE YOU LIST WITH SOME WANTS ON THERE.
Look at the names of stuff or do a little research, if you are not sure what somethngs maybe instead of just putting beans or watermelon at least say something more like I have never grown these before so would be happy with any until I can figure out what I like most. SOMETHING to indicate to us the you really don't have a preference to BEANS or any of the other general list.
There are TOO many specific seeds out there in each family to not say anything more than just a gerenal listing. You will not get to many things if you only list stuff like:
Beans
Beets
Canatloupe
Cosmos
Instead you can say:
Beans never grown any are fine
Beets any
Canatloupe large, orange flesh type/green flesh/ OR ANY
Cosmos any
IT HELP SO MUCH WHEN YOU HAVE MORE INFORMATION THEN JUST A GENERAL LIST...I understand you may be new to gardening, but please help us out a little more. THANKS

ALSO, those of you who do not have anything listed PLEASE PUT SOMETHING UP...we can not send anything for you IF you have no listings at all.

ALSO, PLEASE CONFIRM YOU ARE STILL IN THIS SWAP, I have not heard from some of you since you signed up. When no one sees you posting at all they assume you have dropped out. I have had questions asked about whether or not some are still in this swap, and I have to say I assume so I haven't heard anything either way.

OK, 09. gardeningbingo I can not contact you, you have NO way to be contacted. PLEASE PUT UP A EMAIL ADDRESS SO YOU CAN BE CONTACTED BY MEMBERS WHEN NEEDED...THANK YOU.

As far as I know this is all the issues at the moment ppl have ran into. IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO ADDRESS PLEASE SAY SO...

Message from Canada

MESSAGE FROM HEATHER IN CANADA

"Hi Everyone,
I was reading the earlier posts and wanted to assure you that I didn't leave anyone out that is in Patty's swap. I had to mail my seeds to Fran early only because there's a possibility it could take a few weeks to clear customs. I kept records of everything I sent in for individuals for Patty's swap. Since sending seeds in for Patty's swap, I've received a number of orders in and went back through everyone's lists over and over again. For anyone in Patty's swap, if I had enough of a commercial seed to share, and I hadn't already sent it in for the other swap, I sent it in your baggie for this swap. I knew there may be a risk of duplicates, but I know that Fran is going to go through the seeds, and if you're no longer needing that seed, there will be someone else in this swap that will be looking for it...so I know it will be put to good use. With any seed order, I didn't always have enough to send "everyone" that had that item on their wish lists, so I tried to balance things out as best I could.
I thought this would be the safest route and hope you do decide to stay in this swap. Keeping in mind duplicates are probably a good thing. A number of people have posted here that they may only have a teeny bit of a seed type to share, so getting two packs of something with only a small bit in it, would be great. I agree with another poster here, that seeds from Patty's swap will most likely only affect people's "have lists". It seemed like most people here have been adding to their "wish lists" on a regular basis so everyone is bound to get seeds they did not receive through Patty's swap. Please reconsider....I've sent some seeds in for you. Thanks....Heather"

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

howdee all

Wanted to let you know that I UPDATED MY WISH LIST for the last time. Veggies and herbs. Don't really want a flower unless I can eat it. I have to do what I have to with the huge pay cut and hours lost my hubby just went through. I will be tearing up all my flower beds and replanting only things that can be used or eaten well besides a few select things like michaelson daisy. Such a pretty little purple daisy. Not even sure if that is the name.

Hi everyone,

I'm still in! I have been liniting my time on the computer due to a pinched nerve in the neck. I'm going thru lists little by little everyday.

Lisa


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I've already packed my seeds and one went out to you Fran,about a week ago, hope you got it.
Mary-LakeDallas, I'm not feeling bad at all for sending my seeds earlier than a deadline, as long as we're not late and we send them out, right?
No upsetting needed-it's only seeds.
Managed to bring my plants back outside for the 3rd time this season, it's usually once, twice the most, hope cold spells are over with. I've got mostly rooted and gifted plants, like 4 good luck (Ti) plants, bromeliads in bloom, large red flowering Salvias , 1 blue too--another blue in bud, peace lilies, rosemary , Norfolk pine etc, impatients-dble pink and red,others, all have stories...have traded seeds from Salvia and this year plan on rooting/planting and saving seeds of way more.

Here's what I made for breakfast, sort of like pancakes/crepes but faster.

***************************************************

FABULOUS FRENCH TOAST-LIGHTENED

2 egg whites
1/4 c skim milk or whipping cream (or half-and-half)
1/4 tsp each vanilla and orange/lemon extract
1 T brown sugar and/or Splenda
1/4 tsp cinnamon-or to taste
2 tsp unsalted butter (or more, if needed)
4 slices of bread ( I used 2 split whole wheat hamburger buns, or use other bread, sliced about 1 inch thick)
Honey, pancake/maple syrup or fresh fruit puree, for serving, opt
1. In a bowl, combine first 5 ingredients, whisk until blended,about 1 minute.
2. Heat a heavy or non-stick skillet; brush with butter, cooking over medium-low heat.
3. Soak bread slices in the batter for about 1 minute, turning over once and pressing down on bread to absorb the batter. Place bread ( let it drip some over the bowl) in the single layer in skillet and cook until golden-light brown on both sides, about 3 minutes, depending on the size and kind of bread. Serve warm with the syrup or as you like. (we like it plain)
Serves 2. Recipe can be doubled or multiplied.

lol thank you Lynda :)

I'm wondering how long it takes for the posts to show for others. Several times I've posted right at the same time as someone else and when I check immediately, their post isn't there, but it shows later. Have missed a few posts that way. Including on the guess that plant game in Patty's swap. I posted at the same time as the winner...yet I never saw her post until she said, Hey...knock knock...lol

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Kathy (jaleeisa) - Thank you! Yes, it is a little work, especially at the beginning. Thanks for noticing. I like your way of looking at the two swaps (very positively). It does make me feel a bit better about it.

Lisa (ishareflowers) - I'm so sorry about your neck! You're certainly in my thoughts and prayers!

Dirtdiggin - It takes me a little bit to type what I'm sending sometimes (or I get distracted with something else around here while I'm posting). By the time I submit, I go back and look to see if any other posts came in above mine and a whole lot of the time there is! I've resorted to opening two tabs/windows of the same thread. One I use to read the messages and refresh the page. The other I use to type my post in.

Blessings,

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I got my package from Patty's swap...it was awesome ! I'm going to pretty much leave my want list ' as is' with the additions I've already made. I'm going to spend this weekend starting to pack, but won't mail until everyone has posted that they've gotten their goodies from the other swap . Can't wait !!!!

Re: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Nancy (luvgardening2) - I just wanted to be sure to let you know that we will fully understand your decision, whichever way you decide, okay? I can relate to how you feel totally. I've decided to move on and make the best of it. I know we will all get many more things if we do! Either way, there certainly will be no hard feelings towards you, okay?

Smokymist - Oh, that's GREAT news! I'm sure you're elated!

Lakedallasmary - No one is offended by you sending your seeds in already! I think it's great that others are together enough to not be a procrastinator like me! :-)

Blessings,
Angela

RE: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Oh, and the seed packets done with your kiddo's help (whoever posted that), I think it's GREAT! My kids helped with some packets for another trade. It's a good thing to do them as a family, in my opinion!

Wendy - I do hope you're feeling better soon! I had that aweful up and down flu/cold, not sure if I'm ever gonna get better yuckiness for almost a whole month! YUCK! Also, did you update your page? I was waiting to see if you posted about it, but I don't see that you said it was updated yet...

Just an FYI - I'm adding a few last minute wishes to my wish list:
Any Ice Plant (delospermum)
Any arctotis (African Daisy)
Any other interesting colored daisy-faced flowers that enjoy dry soil (If you think it's pretty, I probably will too.)

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hi all, just checking in. It is an obsession now. I just wanted to say I am stil packing up but won't send in until we get the word from Fanna Fran to do so about all the updates. My daughter (10) ha been helping pack up seeds and typing on my slow to get organized want list. She thinks it is sooo cool to get to helpk and to type on this. She is also doingflowers for 4h and vege's along with a couple ofher own pullets. Very cool. I am a proud mama. Fran, I saw something above t tell you and don't remember what, I will look again in a sec.

Wendy-have you been to a dr???? Something that hangs on that long may need a little help to kik its butt. I am not big on dr's and medication my self, but it sounds like you may need a little help. Sometimes I have to guilt myself about not being able to help the kids as much or simple things like I could do more seeds or get planting more if I felt better, To make myself go to the dr. GO!!

OH yeah, Fran, I planted marigolds inbetween all of my tomatoe plants last year and noticed a huge difference. They say in the book I have been reading to just not plant near herbs b/c the herbs can take on te taste of a marigold and that might be kinda gross. :) But, they worked super well in the garden, plus it was really pretty. Anyway, that is my update for now. Oh, if anyone has any Orange Hawaii Marigolds, I would love sme for my chickens. I know yotetrapper was going to add them to her list, too. Just in case anyone has any they can share. Supposed to orange up the egg yolks and fat on the skin of my chickies. Thanks all Nichol

Oh, andthanks again to ANGELLADY for all of her hardwork.

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

HI HO all,
I have updated my list...I added what I received from Patty's swap to my have list and removed the items from the want list....although, not much removed from what I see LOL.
Althoug I received nice things from the swap there were a BUNCH on plain unnamed Poppies in there, Gaillardia too, and plain Penstemon...so it looks like I got a lot BUT a lot were multiples of basically the same thing which is why I didn't actually remove much from my wants list...because of receiving lots of the same...Looks like I will have a LARGE NOID poppy field LOL.... anyone want some? I have a LOT...hehe I DID say I liked them didn't I?
I got a lot of different Peppers too and I just have them listed as Pepper Sweet and Hot on my want list so I can't remove those either because there are still a lot I would like...lol
So, even though I got stuff I can't remove a lot...SORRY...hehe
My package WAS impressive though, there were some nice things in there, I hope everyone else is pleased with their returns from that swap too! It was fun looking through the bag, didn't think it would take as long as it did but there was a LOT in there and I wrote out a master list as I went...THANK GOODNESS I took my own advice, HEHE

OK, I have rambled enough...well have to go get duties started, well really I think I am gonna go play outside since it is warm today FINALLY!!!

:) Fran


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I thought I was done adding things to my list, but then I went back through some catalogs. I have added Yard Long beans to my want list. I may add more soon, but I had to get these on right away, they sound so cool! Oh, I also added Brussels Sprouts - Long Island Improved. OK, I think that's all. For now.


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Ok, I'm an addict. I updated my list again.

Angelady, I've been meaning to say thanks for all the work you've done with the lists. Thanks for designating yourself our webmaster.


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

LOL! You're most welcome!

I will finish all the updates tonight to the master list. I'll then try to have the second list for updates from Patty's swap, if Fran still wants me to. I'm not sure how much time I will have, though. I still have to pack up many more seeds myself!! Do you still think we need a second list, Fran? I think most of us said that we made our lists officially updated as best we could. Just let me know...

Blessings,
Angela


 o
Update ?

Angela, I noticed that my 2/4/09 update at the bottom of my want list doesn't show up on your updated master list? ...

I am almost finished packing up all my seeds, I had more of everyone's wants than I first thought ... this is so much fun!It was almost 60 degrees here in southern Maryland, so nice, I have a serious case of " wanna be spring fever " especially since I was playing in my seed box today ;-) I noticed some of my bulbs from last year are peeking thru ... they should go back down LOL winter isn't over yet here I am sure ...

~Iris


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Well Angela I was thinking that if their seeds start coming in from Patty's swap and then they start removing stuff and not adding they received it on their have list then they may get doubles of stuff from this one.
Don't worry about it Angela, I will just go save their current list then I can just open it in Word and go back and check it when the seeds start coming in. So don't worry about it....I am gonna start working on saving their list now.
Again I was just thinking they would want to remove items they got a lot of or received any of from the other swap, but if no one is going to remove or update then I don't know how to handle this.

See my point? I was thinking everyone would be removing stuff and if someone sent it in for them if they removed it then they don't need or want that type of seeds anymore, BUT if they don't remove anything even though they received it in the other swap then I will be sending it to them and they may have loads more then they ever wanted or needed BUT I will still need to know it WAS on their list before hand so I will know they DID remove it and it is no longer needed.

MAN, I HOPE that made sense, kind of confused myself, but of course it doesn’t help with a TV blaring in my ears either, I have to be able to THINK to write stuff and I have to concentrate to do to and SO has the TV on which is right beside the computer which breaks my train of thought..

SOOOOOOO I guess what I am saying is EVEN if you seeds arrive from the other swap and almost everyone has sent in to me already I STILL need you to do some kind of updating whether it is to leave that type of seed on there and list it as (RECEIVED, WANT/NEED MORE) OR whether you remove it completely because IF it is no longer there then I know you no longer need it and I can pass it on to someone else who may want it….ok?

SO PLEASE FOR ME, I need information from others on whether they still need or want an item OR MORE OF THE SAME THEY ALREADY RECEIVED OR they no longer desire this item and don’t need anymore.


:) Fran

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I'm packed but holding on till the last moment (in case I can fill someone's last minute wish)!

I came up with one--I added pearl or Cipollini onions.

PS - So nice out today. The fish-pond de-thawed and I didn't have to bundle up when I went out to pick some herbs!


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Fran - Hey, no problem at all! I have designated myself as webmaster, haven't I? :-)

I just saw two updates (I think) where they said their list hadn't changed much. I just wasn't sure if we needed two separate lists or one list that I update everyone on, which would be a little easier, but not too much trouble to do it separately. I'll just update both files every evening instead of one. So, it really won't be much. I guess I sounded panicked before about packing seeds. It really went fast last time when I went from the updated master list, so I'm sorry if I came off sounding like I wasn't totally enjoying being our webmaster! :-)

Blessings,
Angela

Hi everyone :)

Angelady ~ nope, not updated yet.. (I'm sorry!) I just haven't felt up to it honestly. But I have it on my 'to-do list' for tomorrow.. I'll post and let ya know. But suffice it to say if I get doubles I will certainly NOT complain! lol I'm anxious to get Patty's pkg tho....so I can REALLY update it..

Gardenmom~ nope haven't been to the doc.. no insurance here. joy. joy.. *sighhhh :P

Was a gorgeous day here. Got outside in the yard a bit, it was about 67 here today which was WONDERFUL!! We were down to around 17 last Sunday.. I've got daffodils sprouting already :P I'm just still kinda trying to take it easy so I can get WELL! sheesh

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I need help with getting things for the followig so far: gardeningbingo, douglasls, chellflower, poisondartfrog, ishareflowers.

Being new, my stash is kinda limited, so I don't have anything for them yet. Does anyone have any ideas??? Are they going to post more. I really feel badly not having something for everyone. HELP !!


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Ooops, I lost track of what day it was when I said I would be done updating tonight. I meant sunday evening... LOL... I thought the weekend was going a little too fast! :-)

If you've asked for an update on the master list, you should see it. Please, let me know if there are any mistakes you see. You guys are great helping me find what needs fixed!

BTW, I just want everyone to be aware that I'm NOT checking every person's want list and updating the master list. The only time I'm checking your page is when you tell me that you've updated it! I don't want any misunderstandings and people being overlooked because of it, okay?

Nichol (gardenmom2) - PLEASE, don't worry about sending to every single person. There are members that we just don't have any seeds to share with because what we have doesn't match their wants. Don't let it worry you. Other members will help that have similar gardens to theirs.

Blessings,
Angela

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Fran - Nevermind on sending me the list. I stayed up to be sure I got the new list done. I saw a lot of people had gotten their package and updated, so I put every player up that had ***** next to their name on the new page. The link is below my signature for anyone who wants to check for updates to those lists.

Also, I'm annoyed at the pop-ups at the site that I used to host my HTML pages. Does anyone know of a free website that doesn't do that? If you do, would you mind replying to me personally by email to let me know? TIA

Blessings,
Angela

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Nichol,
Please don't worry about sending to me. I have lots of seeds, but don't have something for everyone. People with similar appetites take care of each other and people with lots of seeds like to help new collectors, so everything works out.
I am almost ready to mail; just waiting for final updates.
Have a great Sunday, Alana


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Nichol, I feel the same as poisondartfrog. It's okay if you can't send to everyone. This is a gift swap...no worries!

Yotetrapper(angela], Did you get your peter pepper seeds? I'll check you list again.

Lisa


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I know, I just really was doing so well with having at least something for everyone and felt bad. I just want those that I don't hve something for, to know I tried. I do know that I am having a blast with this. I have about 17 more to finish up then I will wait for the final word for updates and be done. Thanks for your kind words. Nichol


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Nichol don't worry about it. While I do wait until everyone is updated to ship...that doesn't mean I always have something for everyone. I try, but it never happens :o)
I didn't really change my want list much from the last swap...because those really are things I wouldn't mind getting more of. I got swamped with bean seeds, but if I want to get enough to plant a whole row, for example, I need to leave them on my want list :o)
One of my favorite flowers, the Nastursium....oh was I spoiled. 6 different named varieites, but you know what...I have pots sitting everywhere waiting on these ( and a mother wanting to share with me lol )...so I will leave those on as well because I just love them so darn much .
It's been a gorgeous couple of days here, havn't felt like doing much, but I'm heading out today to pot up a ton of Brugmansia cuttings and plant some of these seeds !!


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Nichol...ditto what Alana said...

Don't worry about sending me seeds, just send to those you can. There are folks with wants that I couldn't fill either. Remember, this swap doesn't obligate you to send to everyone, but only to those you can or chose to send to. The object here is to have fun while getting to know each other and share our extras.

We have many folks in this swap with diverse plant interests,and such a hard working hostess, I'm sure everyone will be happy with what they recieve. If I get only 'one' item from my 'want' list I'll be thrilled!


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Lisa, yes I did. Thanks for asking.

Now I'm off to update my list... or try to LOL.


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hi everyone, hope you're well and everyone has power (restored). Great weather here, makes me want to do things more than I can, just got back inside,plenty of cleaning out there since we have long, hot growing season and it quickly becomes jungle-like.
I've checked every want list and divided what I have , such as orn Pepper "Black Pearl" ..and if someone wants they are still forming on the plant. Right now I have 3 extra pkts.
Wendy, hope you're feeling well...everyone else too...Angela, we've been having a stuffy contest? :)
Glad someone likes/noticed/ at least commented on at least one recipe, hope you try some, thank you Wendy..welcome to share them, as I've been saying.
Fran, sure hope you haven't gotten annoyed by my joking, told my daughter Mary when she said to post it, it might be taken wrong, she said if so never mind, if they can't laugh along, cause it's not with a bit of meaness ever, so I've not minded, glad it made my daughter laugh, lol, some of you too, it is okay, Fran has a sense of humor, I love her too, if i don't love her frogs,lol
GREAT JOBS FRAN and ANGELA...THANK YOU.

best to you

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Ok Angela.......my list is DONE.

For those who have not yet checked all the lists, I recieved my package from Patty yesterday and my list is now finalized. I wont even update again...any future updates will go to the April/May swap.

So have at it LOL.

Angela


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Angela, If you could kindly update my list. I updated it today. I just added MY NEW UPDATED Version on the bottom of the list. Just scroll down and I put down that it is for Fran's Swap. I will take down the first list after I get word from Patty that she is Done with it. I really did not want to confuse her.

ALSO, I saw 2 people wanting Meyer Lemon Seeds. Is there anyone else? I have a tree that just keeps on giving. If you would like some, please post here with your number and I will place them in the envelope.

Nancy


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Although I haven't gotten my Patty-Swap-Package yet, I do not mind duplicates either. I think I was just concerned that someone would send a special thing to me and skip someone else, and then I'd get 2 and feel a little bad. basically, if you send it - it'll find a great home in my garden or elsewhere, and will be wonderful. No worries. (love y'all!)

I'm just aiming to fling a bunch of nice seeds out to the world in this swap -- willy nilly style. Not worried about someone getting 300 who only sent in 20, not worried about getting back anything myself (but I do hope, hee-hee). I'm thinking of this swap as an alternative to offering sabse to ya'll. GET THESE EXTRA SEEDS OUTTA HERE! lol!*!*!

So ....... SPECIAL OFFER:

I have a "weirdo" marigold. No one will ever have it on their want list, because it just isn't out there. I harvested a bunch of seed from...

"Tina's Blizzard"..... A Petal-less, Large, Tall White Marigold (the African-type Tagetes erecta). (Not to be confused with the white marigolds offered above, though its parents may be similar.) It doesn't look extra showy, or very white-white because the only things in the flower are the very center filliament parts, but lots lots of 'em. The flower is larger in the base (the green part that holds the seeds), making that very rounded looking. The filliamenty parts spill out of the top in a tuft.

This one is a variant from the "Snowdrift" marigold, so I named it like it was a racehorse, in the spirit of its parent, and for the fuzzy way the flower looks. Initially, from a distance, I thought the flowers just hadn't opened completely, but upon closer inspection.... It's not fancy-showy overall, but is an interesting oddity. (I can't completely promise they will all come out the same, but would love to get info back from people that grow it, so anyone who does I will email next summer for info. Would love to get it growing more/larger tufting by selecting from the best offspring.)

Just post if you would like to try this "Blizzard" marigold, and I'll send it.

--Tina


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Tina I would like to try it and wouldn't mind letting you know in the summer how it does and possibly pics of what it looks like. :)


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Howdy Everyone,
Angela, thank you so much for putting that list together... I was going to email you my list and you had already updated...I thought WOW she's GOOD!!! LOL. You make a fine webmaster!!! So thank you ever so much I think your super fantastic.

Bea, you just keep posting whatever your heart desires! I for one appreciate your recipes I am really liking your mix for No salt, can't remember if you posted that one here or not but bet a lot of folks would like it and since some are going to grow our spices it sort of fits right in the thread.
Oh yeah, I would love some of the Pepper "Black Pearl"... love you too, you stay away from my froggies though, I'll fight you over them....(BIG ornery GRIN plastered here hehe)

Tina, I would love to try your weirded out marigolds, I like weird stuff, I would love to see a pic if you happened to have took one of this mutant :).

Nancy, I would like to try the: Meyer Lemon Seeds can it be grown from seeds? I read somewhere that some don't come tree from seeds, not sure if this was one of the ones it said can't be...do you know?

HEY SC1 how goes it?

HEY EVERYONE...how's everyone's weekend? I have loved our warm weather this weekend BUT I KNOW it is going turn cold again, last year March was fairly well chilly. I know this year will be too. I just hope spring gets here soon. I am ready to start planting...although it is no where near time, I am just ready for SPRING, hehe.

I again want to say thanks to everyone who is in this swap this is one of the ones that is speacial BECAUSE of how it is based and it takes special people to join a swap of this nature, and it wouldn't work with out folks like all of you willing to participate and share with everyone that you can share with.
No you don't have to have something for everyone, but just trying to is a very special gesture! So thanks for at least trying! Nichol, it is mighty nice of you to want to share with everyone even though that is not possilbe sometimes...I just wanted you to know how special it was of you to want to.
So Thanks again to everyone.
:) Fran

Grannieb, I would love some black pearl pepper seeds if there still available.

I'm going to check the updated lists tonight.

RE: Meyer Lemons

Fran, I do not know for sure if they will grow true. I heard that Meyer is one of few citrus that will grow true. I of course cannot make any guarantees. I purchased the Meyer's Lemon tree as a 15 gallon tree from a nursery I frequent. It is from Durling's here in California. A very well respected company. I think their Citrus Trees are the BEST.

I think it is fun to plant seeds and everything but you will have to realize that it will take time. Lot's of time and no guarantees to what you get. If you still want it, just let me know.

Nancy


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Yes, they do grow true to seed! That's exactly why I wanted those and the Key Lime seeds, too.

Also, I will get everyone who asks for updates this evening. I will also put a link on the ALL participants page that links to the ***** participants page.

Okay... got lots to do, gotta run for now... Y'all have a great rest of the weekend!

Blessings,
Angela

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Bea, I enjoy the recipes. I'm printing them out for my cookbook, which is really a large three ring binder with recipes I pick up from all over! Paul's seasonings are wonderful! It's a little more expensive now that I'm not living in Louisiana any more, but well worth it! Wish I could find more Tony's stuff here too. Odd how I grew up in the city where it's made and just kinda took it for granted until I moved!

I'm interested in a few of those Black Pearl peppers as well. I wouldn't need many, no more than five at most. I have a spot that I'd really enjoy having that :)

Tina, I'd enjoy trying your Tina's Blizzard as well. I'm a sucker of oddities and that sounds perfect! Hehe... and since it's a little weird and twisted, I'm gonna plant it in my Gargoyle garden! It sounds a wonderful addition and if you'll remind me, I'd be happy to take pictures and let you know how it came out :)

I'd like to try the Meyer Lemon as well, Nancy, if you have more left. I understand that the seeds don't keep well, though. Has anyone started them from seed before? On the other site it said you could collect the seeds, but I didn't see anything about anyone having grown them from seed. I think it would be a great one to keep in a large pot and move in and outside. I hear the scent is wonderful!

Ok fran I hope that I understood you right. I basically left my list the same except for removing parsely, okra,catnip, and a couple others. I did post that I received beside others but would take more or wanted more. So anything that I did not remove I will accept duplicates of. Did I do the right thing. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was so nice, I can't believe it will get cold again soon. The pond finally unfroze today and the fishies were still alive :). I am almost done packing for this one. Have a great night

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

sissifriss yeap, leaving items you would like more of was right and putting a note beside it helps me a lot...thanks.

Any updates from here on out to your list is fine as far as the information I needed. I did save the list and 28 countrygirl_sc-Gail gave me the original list of everyone so all is well.

Nancy, yes I would still like to try to grow the lemon. I couldn't remember which one could grow true from seeds and thought it might be this one, Angela thanks for comfirming that. I doubt I would ever get fruit anyway so I just want to see if I grow it...
I wish I could find the Key Lime too. I WISH I could get a tree but will not be that lucky anytime soon.

Our weather was so nice today I almost planted some tomatoes but I KNOW it is way to soon, even starting them indoors but I am so ready and would like to start some I do believe I will the 1st of March though. It would be nice to get some early tomatoes going...

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I just made my master list to pack. I've already packed some 80 or so packets. If you get something from me that you already recieved elsewhere, don't fret, just trade it for something else that you DO want.

I will not be checking ALL the lists again.

But I WILL check your list if you post on here that you changed it. I'm off to check rbrady's list now, then I'm gonna call my mom, then start on packing up some more seeds.

This swap is fun.

I said I wouldnt update my list again and I'm not, but I do want to say right here that if anyone has any cabbage for making kraut (not red) or named clematis other than Sweet Autumn, Jackmanni, Confetti, or purple ones, I would love some.

Thanks

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hope I'm not too late.. I just added on my update wayyyyyyyyyy down at the bottom of my list... Can't remove any til I get patty's pkg, but any duplicates will be treasured I'm sure. I gotta Baker's Creek Heirloom seed catalog.. it is NICE!!!!!! Great story behind the co. as well, but that's where most of my updates came from :)

Thanks everyone,

Like a total dork, I don't think I got a photo of the Blizzard marigold freaky thing. I will check around this computer though. Sometimes I put flower photos in funny places and forget what they are (since they just have those goofy numbers as a title.)

Will post it if I find it. And I haven't grown it from seed yet, this was it's first year. May try some indoors (as well as the wintersown ones) to see if I can get a bloom early.

I emailed you Fran. I worked several hours on this swap last night. Still alot of work left. I'm up to somewhere around 120 or so packets. Eventually I may just have to say enough is enough and stop LOL. Right now I have seeds set aside for most people. Those I dont, I just dont have anything for.

I'm going to go through from 48-the end for veggies as I know I have a lot for Nichole and Dessie, then I'll circle items on the list that I believe I have in Patty's packet, and see if I have enough to share of those items. Then I'm gonna be done. Should have this swap done on Tuesday or Wednesday.

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hello Funna! ROFL That's too cute!!! Everything is going well here, I'm starting to get busy getting gardens ready for spring!!! YAY!!! I thought we were going to get a much earlier start till we got those hard freezes. That put everything on hold and I finally got all the mess cleaned up. yuck!!! How are you holding up with this massive swap? Still sane? ROFL :D Thanks a bunch for hosting this!!! 143. lol

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I would love some of the Black Pearl peppers (graanieb)if any still availble and also some of the Blizzard Marigolds (kilngod)!

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hello All,
I know its late, but I have a special request from an old friend with no computer. He and his wife are looking for an OP pole bean. Her favorite is Blue Lake but he feels they should plant fewer hybrids. What are your favorite beans? It would be nice to pass along a favor. They taught my mother to garden and can, and she taught me. So, recommendations are welcome!

Nancy, I would dearly love some Meyer lemon seeds if you have a generous tree. When we lived in Santa Cruz we loved our orange and lime trees. Not sure where you are, but check out San Lorenzo Lumber Company, great seed offerings! There are almost a dozen shelves full of seeds!

Angela, my list has some additions. BTW, the note at the top of your master list has been an huge boon! Who knew ctrl-f could make searches to easy?! duh :p Learn something new every day:)
So far, I packed over 208 packets. Almost everyone will get something, but there were a few I just could not find anything to send, so sorry in advance to those few.

Cheerio,
Fleety

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Luvgardening2/Nancy, I would love some of the Meyer Lemon seeds if you still have enough to share. They are one of the items on my want list.

Thanks,
Chell (Chellflower #15)


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Chell, I spotted them on your list, so you are on my original list. I was thrilled when I saw it because I only plant edibles and that was the only thing I could grant you. I did find one more yesterday when I looked at the list again. You are guaranteed Meyer Lemon Seeds. :o)

I heard that they should not be harvested too long before they are planted so I will go and have lemonade, lemon tea and what not closer to when I ship out. I want to increase your chances for seedlings.

Nancy

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hi everyone,

I have three packets of erigeron "pink jewel", can I interest anyone in these?

Lgslgs, I already put some aside for you!

Lisa


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Oh Lisa,
I just checked, that is such a pretty flower and one I never knew I wanted until I saw a pic after you posted the offer....I like it, could I PLEASE have a pack???

OK folks we had a package in today it had some unknown varieties in it as a whole bag of extras. I am going to post this so anyone who might want them can claim them instead of me fishing around want list hoping to find any interested folks ok?

So I will go work on typing this list up and come back and post all there will be to list and once you claim it it will go into your bag. OK?

I will also post an update as to whom I have received from.

Both Angelas, I have you covered on the cabbage seeds.

Pumpkin

Thanks!!!
It was warm enough today that I almost remembered what the sun does, and I have a hope that spring may actually come! I have felt this strange sensation of the earth having been completely buried in a mysterious layer of white stuff for the last few weeks. As you might guess, I am from the south and out of my element. Hope everyone else is able to entertain thoughts of spring as well!

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

so how is 100 packs so far for a newby. I was pretty proud of myself. I know I know you oldies will have sooooo much more,but what makes this soooo fun is that a little wittle bit of that is for ME !!!!! YAE ! OK I amkidding around and just wanted to say hi to everyone today since I had not posted yet today.
HI FRANNIE !!! Mine are sorted and labeld so all ou have to do is match up with each person and double check for doubles or whatever.

Do we know how many more or who still needs to update?? I was just curious, b/c I will mail as soon as we gt the word, but wanted to keep it available until everyones list are final. With so many of us, I was not sure how we were going to know everyone was updated???

Ok. Iam going to clean off th table from all ofmy seed boxes and mess and go to bed EARLY !!!!

Yeah right, I willbe back on here checking for updates one more time at least.

LOL Nichol

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Lisa (Ishareflowers) - thanks for the erigeron "pink jewel". I looked up photos on the web and it is very cheery and pretty! It will look great in my garden.

It looks like my last minute wish list additions didn't make Angela's update. Daisy lovers, if any of you are looking to share these types I've got a garden that would appreciate them:

-Any Ice Plant (delospermum)
-Any arctotis (African Daisy)
-Any other interesting colored daisy-faced flowers that enjoy dry soil (If you think it's pretty, I probably will too.)

Heirloom Paste Tomato and Okra. :) So sweet for you to offer those!!! :D


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Hi Dessie,
Thanks for offering the Blue Lake, but I'll have to pass. Typically they order seed by the pound, so if you want more let me know! Her favorite for canning is BL but he would like to save his own seed this year esp. if the economy tanks. But he says she is 'getting older' (his words) and won't give them up willingly. We would like to trial some heirloom varieties to replace BL. Thank you for kindly offering :)
Thanks,
Fleety


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Fran may I have one of the Red Plum Tomato? Over the next several days, I'll probably be offering some extras up as well as packing some up to send to Fran with my package. I think I have about 15 packets left to go, then I'll do a quick run through to see about any changes since I made my list out :)

And I received my package from Patty today, but will NOT be changing my list. I don't mind duplicates at all and if I can't plant 'em all, I'm going to be adopting newbies again in the next few weeks or about a month or so at latest. There's been a rash of folks taking advantage of newbies on the seed exchange side and the best way to teach a newbie how to do a BEAP/SABE is to adopt them and guide them through the process. So, duplicates won't be an issue for me :) Not to mention I like to save up special seeds for my partners in the MNF group and knock their socks off when they receive my packages :)

I'm off to take some more meds and head for bed.

Kathy

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I am so glad you all wanted to try these, as you can see there are still a few things available.

If you all like the listings of the extras I will continue to put the up and let you choose things I am not sure about who might want... I think this is just easier and it let you choose something you would REALLY like to try. So start cecking the thread for offers as items come in I amd unsure of I will list them.

I got an envy yesterday that looks like some of the seeds are older seeds. If anyone would be willing to try these let me know and I will post those as well.

It is a nice day out here today too, I am so please we are to get rain tomorrow I have to get out today and start those poppies I received in Patty's swap.

RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

I really like the list of extras, and I'm sure it must be easier for you! I am always game to try older seeds. Heck, I'll try anything! - You know, I think that came out wrong. I mean in the garden. LOL. This swap is a lot of fun Fran.

We've got snow again here in Seattle. This is a very unusual winter for us. But I think it was a good one to try wintersowing for the first time. I have Bachelors Buttons sprouting already. I had to take some pictures of them sprouting in the snow! I guess they know what they are doing.

Hello,

I like the idea of listing extras too! Maybe you want it and don't know it yet.lol

I also have montauk daisy seeds that dont appear to be on anyones list. I should have enough for 5 or 6 offers.

I'll check my stash of pink jewel and see if I can offer anymore.

Lisa

Fran, I grew some seeds that were 7 years old last year.


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

After I get more packed I can see where I am at with leftovers and post what I still have left.

There are a couple that I know I will have several trades of and they are African daisy, and Baby Blue Eyes.

And Unknown Zinnia's that I have received in a trade if interested post and I will mark you down for them.

Ok then I will list those others before too late tonight and yes it DOES make it easier for me to ask them to just HOPE this is what you might want!

I know some seeds will live longer then a few years BUT it depends on HOW they were stored and everything, so it is a hit and miss onion/leek seed are ones that will not last Clematis too it must be planted fairly fresh. Some peppers and eggplants will not germinate as well if it is old and sometimes not at all. That is the reason I said you can 'try' them if you want because I KNOW there is no guarantee on them and you will be taking a chance. Which is why I would let you choose and decide which ones you wanted.
I have no idea how old some are, the dates have been marked through for the most part. :)

Seriously? Again??

I was checking the DC# on my pkg from Patty and look what else I saw on the website...

Mailing Services Prices Effective Monday, May 11, 2009

On May 11 the price for a 1-ounce First-Class Mail stamp will increase from 42¢ to 44¢. Prices for other mailing services — Standard Mail, Periodicals, Package Services (including Parcel Post), and Extra Services — will also change. The average increase by class of mail is at or below the rate of inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index.

Customers can use their Forever Stamps — regardless of when purchased — to mail 1-ounce letters after the price change, without the need for additional postage.

arrrghhh!!!!!!!! :P


 o
RE: update: wow thanks! i wanted that swap #5

Yah, I am a little concerned over having more seeds to share as over 200 packs of seeds are tied up in other swaps. I've packed up a bunch already, but I did think I'd have more packs to split with others before I had to mail this one off. I hope everyone understands that I did the best I could with what I had.
