NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Posted by legallyheidi 7B (missreadsalot87@yahoo.com) on

I did this last year and had a blast, so hopefully I will again this year :)
I'm going ahead and posting this...though the deadline is October 15th. Yes, a long time away...but a few folks messaged me last go 'round that they didn't see it until it was too late...hopefully everyone who wants to participate has ample time to see this.

GUIDELINES FOR THE SWAP:
Swapper should have the ability to send seeds in by the deadline (October 15th).
The ability to post then they've received their seeds back from me.

Let me know in this thread that you would like to participate & I will message my address to you. THE PURGE IS OPEN TO ALL...USA, CANADA, & INTERNATIONAL.
*PLEASE make sure that it is legal to send and receive seeds in your country...as there are a few that do not accept seeds from the US*

1. You can send in up to 100 seed packs. If you are sending in extra seeds as a bonus please mark them clearly as a bonus. If you send in 100 packages, you will get 100 packages back. If you send in 5 packages you will get 5 back. There is a maximum of 5 packages of each variety per person. Variety meaning "Dixie Butterpea", not legumes in general You can send veggies, flowers, and herbs.
As a rule, seed packets should *try* and contain the following:
Tiny Seeds (basil, hyssop, poppies): 1/4 tsp
Small Flower Seeds (calendula, bachelor button): 1/2 tsp
Small Vegetable Seeds (tomato, pepper, eggplant): 10 seeds
Large Flower Seeds (4 O'Clock, Nasturtium, Thunbergia): 10 seeds
Large Vegetable Seeds (Squash, Beans, Corn): 20 seeds

2. Please send NAMED VARIETIES of seed. Please mark the seed package with the type of seed (annual or perennial flower, herb, vegetable, etc.) & the cultivar name. PLEASE DO NOT SEND KNOWN HYBRIDS. If seeds are from a commercial source, please note that as well. Basically put as much info as you can on the packet. Or if possible, send seeds in the original packet. If there is anything that is unsure of, just ask! Do not include mystery seeds. It isn't fair to send mystery seed to people who followed the instructions & sent in named varieties. Unknown varieties will be sent back to you.

When you grow out the seeds that you receive please try not to be upset if an occasional plant is not true. That being said, please don't send in seed that you know is crossed & will not grow true.

Please do not include seeds that are older than 2011.

3. Please include a list of the seeds that you are sending in (or message me with the list). Also include a wish list or preferences and if there are any seeds you do not want to receive. I will try my best to accommodate your wish list, but there are no guarantees, of course. The returned seeds will be completely dependent on what is sent in. The easiest wishlists to fill include some specifics (Malachite Box Tomato), but also some general wishes (Green-when-ripe tomatoes). Don't be shy. It is easier, if your wishlist has 100 things on it. If you wish to message me your wishlist, please feel free, and if you'd like, post it (or some of it) on the thread. If you have something on your wishlist & get it from another source, change your mind, or find something that you wish to add to your list, just let me know. It is no trouble to change the lists until the day that I send them out, then you're kinda stuck.
Please include both your real name (for mailing) and your screen name, so I know who has sent in their seeds! I had trouble with a few last go 'round who didn't include a screen name

WHAT TO SEND:
Inside your envelope you should have:
1. Whatever seed you are contributing to the swap
2. 5 US Stamps (Canada & international can send monetary funds, if need be)
3. An address label with your address on it.
4. A wish list or list of preferences or do not want list
5. Include your name & Screen name

I'm downsizing in the winter, so my stash of seeds will be added...everyone will end up with more than they sent in.
I'm posting this on Idig, as well...there were quite a few participants from the site last time.

Thanks.

Is this Round Robin full??? Please add me to list. I haven't done this in about 6 years and need to start up for seed collections again. Thank you.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

It's not full until it's too late to mail them, lol! I'll add you...thanks for joining in!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

In addition to your wishlists, feel free to put things you do NOT want, as well. For instance, I am allergic to corn...so I would let someone know that. I also cannot grown melons (thanks Georgia Clay!), so that would be on my "do not want" list as well.
Also, international members are welcome...if you cannot post on this post, send me an email through Gardenweb.

I am not sure if I missed it or not but I read it a couple of times when if the cut off date and when should the seeds envies be to you by?

Thanks Aqua


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I need the seeds by October 15th, if possible. Other than that, I'll take participants until it's too late to mail them.

No big deal if they're a few days late, though...you can't control the postal service. One was late last year...it floated around Georgia for a week before it arrived. And yet, ones from Hawaii arrived in three days, lol!

I would love to join in on this trade. Can you send me your address? I will get the seed packets ready for mailing tonight. My wish list is rather generic as I am still realitively new to gardening. I don't want to exclude a seed variety just because at this moment in my learning curve it is unknown to me. Thanks -- Jessica


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Heidi,...my seeds are now officially on their way to you! Discounting possible postal problems, I figure you should likely receive them either Friday or Saturday. Man-O-man, it's the most seed packets I've ever sent anyone for any reason, LOL! I packaged them in accordance with the preferred GW SASBE standard, so the same bubble envy can (hopefully) be reused to send seeds back to me. The sealing flap is only taped shut, without using the built-in adhesive strip, leaving that for you. - Lovin' this fun swap!! :)


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Awesome! I'll let you know when I receive them.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Mail went in the mail today, man I wish I would have checked the post today before I got it to the PO.
I have some of what folks are looking for :(

I think I included everything I was supposed to but legallyheidi I told you on my wants I didn't want any more tomatoes BUT if I could get any of the Indigo or Blue tomatoes that would be awesome.
I did send in a few Hybrid (comm packs) because I forgot which swap was which. I also sent in a somewhat unnamed Columbine, it is a Wild Red. SORRY.
The PO is closed Monday but if I need to replace those Heidi just let me know. Send me a message if I need to replace those. I can send something else :)
I was just in a rush because I have been sick for over a week now and I was trying to finish up today so I could get it to you in time.

:) Aqua


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

The hybrids are fine...someone is using the seeds they get to use in a community swap, and they actually asked for hybirds :)

I believe someone has sent in quite a few packets of blue tomatoes, so I'll keep watch out for you.

I hope you're feeling better, Aqua!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Thanks Heidi on both.
I found a pack that was supposed to go in there too, I don't know how it missed the envy but it did.
It was Dahlia unwins dwarf. There were supposed to be 2 packs but I suppose one missed it. I had 101 in there so I guess now it's 100 LOL!!!

I have been sick since last Wednesday, I don't know what it is. I feel worse today than I have been, I am ready to feel better.
Don't worry everyone, I sanitized my hands before I touched the envies and seeds so y'all don't have to worry about me passing it on to anyone :)

Thanks for the well wishes Heidi I appreciate it.

:) Aqua


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I am running late will send out on Monday and should get to you wend. Or Thursday.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

That's fine. USPS doesn't run Monday, due to Columbus Day.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

The self-serve stations should be, I think. My husband said people in the back should still be processing stuff (he used to work in a PO cafeteria). :)


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I sent mine priority mail yesterday so fingers crossed it will arrive on Tuesday!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I had a bunch of things come up and completely forgot about the swap! I am so sorry. I do have them all packed up but they wouldn't go out until tomorrow and never would make it by the dead line. Ugh!!!
Michele


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Michelle, if you still want to send them feel free...between this site, idig, and Dave's Garden I'm still waiting to receive from about 20 people.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Thanks! I will get a list together tonight and get them out tomorrow. Thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Oooo-ooo-ooo,...Blue tomatoes!! Can you save me some, purdy pleeeease?! Would totally love some!!

Aqua, so sorry to note you're under the weather, so to speak. :( I haven't been feeling well for several days, myself (digestive problems). Today is my first real day back on the computer for quite a while, mostly leaving belated positive R&R reviews for recent trades.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Received seeds from Penny, Paul Velat, msjzzyzoff, aquadragonfly, zeak, & gardenmermaid.

Yup, I'll reserve blue tomatoes for those who want them.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Heidi,
I think I already told you, but the blue tomatoes I sent in are: Bosque Bumblebee, Dancing With Smurfs, and Indigo Rose. So you don't have to Google all of the different types. :)


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Thanks for letting me know you received.
cryptid, I had some kind of stomach thing too, thankfully I am finally over it. Glad to hear you are feeling better as well.
Heidi, in the second package there is a small printed label with my addy on it.

Thanks again for doing this swap, I am excited to see what comes my way!

:) Aqua


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Hey, Aqua,...

Yeah, I'm feeling basically human again, `cept for the fact that my BIL recently brought us an assortment of chocolates from Eureka, CA,...regular ones for Elly, sugar free for me,...where sugar free means sweetened with sorbitol and/or maltitol, which for diabetic (sometimes over indulgent) me often equates to gut cramps and other gastro-intestinal unpleasantries. Thing is, I indulge so seldom, ordinarily, that when a bounty presents itself, well, I tend to binge,...thus my undoing. Last night and early this morning I kinda went nutz and I've been basically paying for it all day, LOL. Oh wellllllll, I guess! Sorbitol sux, sucralose rules! Gonna have to make myself some Splenda peanut butter cookies and apple pie. Hate messin' with crust, though, but if I have to, Meta Givens recipe is the best. Too sleepy to type any more just now, so, "Night-night all!" Wishing you a sunny tomorrow!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I agree, Meta Givens is the absolute best!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Glad you're feeling better, for the most part. Today I received seeds from vegcarolina!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I would also LOVE to have a few of the blue tomatoes!!

Jayeanne


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

Sure thing!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

michellelee, got your seeds!


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

If you have any left I would like a few blue tomato seeds.Thanks,

Suzanne


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

I'll reserve you a packet.


 o
RE: NEW: Seed Purge Fall 2013

If you have not mailed your seeds, please let me know. If I don't hear anything by the 31st, I'm going to assume that you are not wanting to participate.

I agree, Meta Givens is the absolute best!

Totally,...and another thing, we have the movie "Superman Returns" starring Brandon Routh, with Eva Marie Saint as Martha Kent. At the start of the flick, when Supes "returns" from space after having been gone for 5 years, searching hopefully for possible survivors of his home planet's untimely demise, his crystalline spacecraft comes streaking in over the Kent farm, causing quake-like tremors before it crashes in a field. --"Yo, Cryptid, get to the freakin' point already!"-- Anyway, as the camera pans around Martha Kent's dining and kitchen area, clearly visible, next to her radio, are Meta Givens' volumes of her "Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking." - Signifying what? Nothing, really, just something I picked-up on is all. :) - One of Roy's super fave movies that he likes to watch over, and over, and over, and over, and over,...--sigh--

Hi all,
I have been BUSY and still fighting some kind of stomach thing.
It has gotten to the point it comes and goes....it is just pain now though, like when you have a virus BUT I KNOW a virus doesn't last this long....it's just weird in all shades of colors!

cryptid, lay off that candy! Even artificial sweeteners are bad for you! When you posted it has moltital in it I thought ut-oh, stomach issues and then you posted it. I had read before some can't tolerate that either. Slenda isn't the greatest thing either, I used to use a lot of it, but have read some really bad things about it. It just isn't worth it to me.
I loved your getting to the point about the movie, funny how we can catch certain things in them isn't it.

LEGALLYHEIDI, honey, I have a huge request: IF at all possible, could I get Indigo Rose tomato seeds? If any are still up for grabs. I just read something about them and I think I need to incorporate them into my diet. If at all possible please ma'am, if none are available I understand :) Thank you hon!

:) Aqua
