Willy we did a plant trade years ago. I think you sent me alstroemeria p. I don't remember what I sent you. I was wondering if it would be alright to make requests from other participants? And send seeds labeled for specific people? I just noticed that jensyen has some seeds I'd like and I have some seeds on their wishlist.


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

Willy, we are arranging a private trade so you don't need to deal with it.

Willy's swaps are the best! I think half the plants in my garden have come from seed obtained in these fall swaps.

I have just started collecting seed here but I should have lots to share by November. Please count me in - - thanks! Nancy

RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

Willie,
I sent mine in today, I need to make room in refrigerator, LOL,
I did, however, forget to put postage in. I will get it to you before November 8th, I think I'm going to hold off as maybe my Asclepias psyocarpa will have seeded by then, I have six plants so I'll have more seed than I'll ever use.. I check gardenweb almost daily so I won't forget!

RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

i feel like a dork for signing up and then forgetting about this swap. is it too late? sorry things got hectic. if its not too late i can send monday? or should i just forget it?

i am sorry....


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

Leila,
Don't know if Willy got back to you. He wrote this in the intro: 2) You have plenty of time to gather seeds and send them in, they are not due in until November 8. If you still need a little more time, this is fine.
So, I think sending seeds this Monday would be fine.
Jen


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

This is Willy your host. If you are a little late in getting seeds in that is fine, just send them when you cant. If it looks like you wont have time until after Christmas, that is fine, you can join the New Years Swap which the seeds are not due until the end of January. I will be going on Vacation for a while around Thanksgiving, I am going to try to get some of the seed packets if not most out before I go. Thank you all for your participation and if you still would like to participate in a group swap, please sign up for the New Years Swap.. Have a blessed Thanksgiving


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

I'm sorry I dropped the ball on this one too. I have had so much going on.
Thanks for hosting Willy, I know you always have an awesome swap. Sorry I missed it. I am still cleaning seeds....


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap

Willy, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I got a chance to get to your part of the world for the first time this year when DH had a short business trip there. NOLA is crazy, but I loved it - the whole French Quarter is a real trip. I did spend a good part of one day at City Park and the Botanical Garden, which is very nice.


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes Back To School Fresh Seed Swap
