Original Post:

Spring Me A Surprise
I thought this would be a great way to share extra seeds with those who are looking for specific seeds before spring gets here.

This is a surprise swap so please don't post who you are sending seeds to. You do not need to send seeds to join, just post your top 5 wants. If possible try and find at least one other to send to.

RULES:
1. Post your top 5 seed wants. The ones you really would like to have before spring gets here.

2. Send me your GW name and your address in an email. I will send out a spreadsheet of addresses by email on February 28th of all requests by GW name with their addresses so you can send seeds. Try to mail out the seeds during the first week of March.

3. Have Fun!

I will be going thru my seeds this week and seeing what matches up to who....and like Lisa and Alana said before, some of mine will come out of my private stash so there may only be a small amount of seeds.
I dont mind getting only a few seeds especially when it is something I really want :)

Hope to get some envys out in the mail in the next few days if the snow ever stops LOL!!

Donna ;)


 o
RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

I dont think any of you need to apologize for sending small amounts, if it is on someones MOOST wanted list....just a few seeds is GRAND !!

I am also using seeds that I am planning on sowing,Ill be sharing half of the ones I have.

Forgive me, but is there a date we HAVE to mail out by...It is gonna take me some time to work on them...I will be starting tonight.

Thanks for another great swap !!! I am so happy to be one that can share now ! Enabling is sooo much fun, tee hee !

Any amount of seed is a blessing I have to agree, especially if it's on a most wanted list! All it takes is one good seed to grow a beautiful plant and have you set for seeds next season!

I had so much going on this wkend with an ER trip and my van breaking down (AGAIN!) that I didn't get to update my list from 5 to 15. No biggie, I just didn't make it here in time, but anything from my wish list will be loved and cherished. :)

Donna :)

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

what a blessing. It has been a rough couple days. School situations, then a friend wrecked his car last night so I had their kids for the night. Students at school have been nasty this week... So... I get home today and find two cards. I sent out cards and forgot all about this swap. This was a blessing today.

Alana (Poisondartfrog) sent me the Ptiltus I wanted and the medusa pepper!

Then, I opened another card from ishareflowers (Lisa) and found pink jewel , Chinese Houses for Micah, chocolate peppers, colombine magpie and coralbells.

It still amazes me when these cards arrive. I have really bad day at school, and then I get home and this happens. Thank you both so much...

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Mornin" all,

I got my first card yesterday! whoo hoo...., it was from Dan.

Dan sent me penstemon red rocks, globe amaranth and red poppies. Thank you Dan, I don't have that penstemon or white amaranthus! I hope ya don't mind but I gave my neice the poppies, I already had red ones.

mailboxin' is so much fun!

Lisa


 o
RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

nope, I don't mind. gardening is all about giving, sharing, and teaching, and that's what you're doing with your niece. how cool! I remember my Aunt Lorraine sharing her love of gardening and fish aquariums with me when I was a youngster, and I'm glad I've got those memories of her! I just wish I could tell her that I sometimes combine the two by turning my largest aquarium into a terrarium, but she's not around anymore. But, before she died, she gave my mother a part of her snowball bush, which has grown HUGE, and I've got a start off of that one growing in my yard now, so it's kind of like having her still with us.

So, go ahead and share the seeds and create memories. You never know how it'll turn out, making those memories with the next generation. Who knows? Maybe they'll grow up to join us here on the GW! LOL!


 o
RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

I have mailed a few surprises out and still have to mail several more. Been a bit slow... Overwhelmed lately with seed activities since I am in several RRs and also this time of year is a seed sowing time for me! :)

No surprises in my mailbox yet, but a little bird told me that one is on the way to me! Mail takes a little bit longer to get to Hawaii, so sometimes I get news by birdie, before the seeds actually arrive. ;)

 o
RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

I received an envy today! The envelope was shredded, as was the bubble wrap inside and the seed baggie. The seeds were completely dust. I'm sorry Angela. You had it really well wrapped in bubble wrap, these things happen though I guess : (. Thank you anyways though, for thinking of sending to me. Sometimes, I wonder how something can get so shredded like that in the mail. You'd think they put it through a wood chipper or something! I'm sorry, I dont know what kind of seeds they were, the name you wrote was on shredded pieces of paper. Its ok though, I'm glad you were thinking of me. It still made my day to get SOMETHING in the mail. : )
Thanks,
Holly

 o
RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Hi everyone, I am so happy you are all enjoying the seeds I sent. I am enjoying mine too.
This swap has been so much fun. I tell my son when I pick him up that I have to go to the post office and he tells me, It's ok Mom, I know the routine..... You're obsessed. LOL

Tammy, I am glad you like my label cards. I wish I had had more ready for this swap, but I was running out. I print them myself using an old print shop program. The idea came to me in the middle of the night once and I started using them. I used to hate the little ziplock baggies. LOL I have even received a few back in trades.

It is supposed to rain tonight, but maybe tomorrow I can get some sowing done outdoors. I don't have any more indoor spots.........
Have a good night everyone.
thanks for all the seeds you have shared with me too.
Linda

On another note, I came home today and found that my cats had been into the dried catnip. The small bag (about 4-6 ounces) had been ripped open and scattered all around the office. My 4-month old kitten was hanging around the refrigerator, and the 16-month old kitten (neither will be fully grown until they're 4 years old) was laying on the office printer, his eyes glazed, just enjoying life. If he were any mellower, he'd be wanting to go buy a bong! LOL!

I received from Tammy/greenthumbgrow:
chervil
Mammoth Dill

from ibartoo
fenugreek

yotetrapper:
Yellow bell pepper
chinese giant sweet bell pepper (can't wait to try these!)
orange bell peppers

Thank you both, someone else sent me something and I can not find the envy.
It was during the time we were moving and it all got confuzzled.
I am sorry but if you sent me something like 2 weeks ago please let me know if it was you! I have been so busy we have not have time to breath hardly much less anything else!

Thanks you all of you who have sent me something I do appreciate everything I received.

I have not sent mine out yet but I promise to work on all my swaps this weekend!

Tammy, no problem I always write down the wrong names, but it was funny...I read the post, and thought, oh, that is what I sent, and so is that one, well, I guess I shouldnt have mailed to her...but then when all of them matched, I thought...this has to be me..HA HA

I would like to thank Linda (Ibartoo) for the hosta seeds and for looking for something to send to me, thank you soo much !!

I would also like to thank Wendy (Sassy) for sending me Poppy danebrog laced, drama queen, and red fringed feathered Poppy.

Thanks so much for including me in the swap, this has been a lot of fun ! I only sent to 4 people, but I hope it brightened your spring !

Fran , that might have been from me. I sent out 4 or 5 envy's about 2 weeks ago, and only 1 so far has made it to it's new home.....so I am hoping that the one you lost was one of mine LOL!!

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Thanks Wendy (sassybutterfly)for the moon and stars watermelon seeds and the princess pine seeds. I love these little surprises, I didn't think that I would! But I'm beginning to get the hang of it, and it feels so good, it never fail to amaze me how people who's never seen me would be so caring as to send me gifts over and over again, from different swaps, you people are the best!
Chris
Mine are all packed now I just need to send them a few at a time...Chris

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Wow, cards are pouring in.....

I'm still holding at two but I'm thrilled with what I got in them.

I'm not sure that all my cards made it to their homes, I do hope so.

Happy mailboxing all!

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Yotetrapper, its fine, dont worry! I'm glad you thought of me, so I wanted to make sure I thanked you for the thought anyway. Its been happening a lot with my postal service, we got a new lady and she doesnt come until almost 5 oclock now and everything lately has been all smashed. One of my bills came the other day and it was completely ripped open and all over. : ( It was kind of everyone who sent to me to share their seeds with me. I have been lurking around, I got a few things from this swap so I'm all set for spring! I planted too many seeds in my greenhouse already, I dont know what I'm going to do with them all until I can set them out! Guess I'll have to buy some bigger pots! Also, I have a question: Some of the people I want to send to I dont have their last names. Will the post office take it if the persons first name is on there only? That's why I am so late getting mine out because I wasn't sure if they would take them or not and I haven't gotten tot he post office lately to ask.


 o
RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Riley,
The post office will still deliver them as long as you write out the address legibly. Sometimes we get letters with no name, or to "Grandma", and then we rely on the address to get it to the correct Grandma. So, go ahead and send those envies to the people with only one name, they'll get there. LOL!

Dan, your gardening mailman

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

thanks Dan!! I'll get them right out!

Thanks again to anyone that sent to me, this sure was fun !

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

I received a surprise today from Chris (grolikecrazy)! Thank you. :)

The plain letter envelope had holes in it- looks like it was damaged in transit. There was no bubble wrap or other padding inside of it to cushion the seeds. Seeds sent to me with no bubbles almost always do get destroyed like this, because the PO runs mail through some hard metal rollers unless it's in a bubble mailer marked FRAGILE in big red letters. :(

The Dianthus barbatus seeds were about 75% destroyed and the Red Noodle Yard Long Bean seeds were completely dust.

Thank you grolikecrazy, for kindly sending to me. I can still sow the few Dianthus seeds that made it, and hopefully get some plants! Excited about that. :)

I'm sorry this happened, Chris. You were so kind to send seeds to me.

I'm very glad you were thinking of me, and some of the Dianthus seeds do appear to be usable. It made my day to receive this, even if it is just a few seeds. : )

Thanks,
Grovespirit

Wondering why the surprises I mailed out haven't shown up here yet. I do hope they didn't get lost in the mail.

RE: Spring Me a Surprise - Received...

Chris/grolikecrazy truly surprised me today! Thanks so much for the Thai eggplant and especially for the Papaver giganteum. I really was not expecting it which made it extra special!
