In looking at my seed stash, I know that I have way too many seeds that I'm not going to use. Please join me for a Fall Sweep RR - send 25 packs of seeds, marked with name of seed, GW name and you will receive 25 different packs. Please try to keep age of seeds to 2008 and 2007, and no more than two packs of each variety so everyone gets a good selection. Send me an email to let me know you're interested at aba563@aol.com. The closing date for participation will be 9/30/08. Thanks! Ann

RE: Fall Sweep RR

Hi I'd like to be counted in too. I am just starting with my seed collecting and trading, but it is an addictive hobby. So, I am sure that I can manage 25 packets of seeds from my newly started but already good-sized stash. This sounds like a good RR to start with.


 o

 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

OK - I've emailed suecirish and ilovefarac - Linda, if you want in on this email me! I'm sure we can find more seeds for you!

 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Thanks to everyone who has responded so far - it looks like there are at least 20 people involved. Please mail your seeds before the end of the month. It will hopefully only take me a week to do the turn-around and get the new seeds to you. If you have not yet heard back from me via my personal email account, please email again. aba563@aol.com

RE: Fall Sweep RR

If it's not too late, I would love to join!

RE: Fall Sweep RR

If it is not too late to join I would love to try. I have never done a swap before, but have been saving seeds this year and I have enough to make a swap. Please let me know the details and if I can still join in the fun. I will send you an email as well.
Thanks

If it's not too late, I'd love to join in! I can get my seeds out this week.


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

If you would like to join in please make sure you send me an email by the end of the week (9/19). That should give you enough time to mail them before the end of September. If I have not yet emailed you to give you my address, please send me another email at aba563 @ aol.com. So far we have about 26 people. That should make for a great mix of seeds.

 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Still feeling a bit like summer here temp/humidity-wise, but seeds were sent on their way this morning... :]

RE: Fall Sweep RR

My seeds are also going out Monday am. Sorry such a procrastinator but had to work several doubles and 12's this week! But they will be on there way! Melinda


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

my bubble was mailed yesterday!


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Hopefully everybody's seeds are in the mail so I can get these seeds out of my house. My poor husband thought I was keeping all of them and was ready to have me committed. He was SOOOO much happier when he found out they were all leaving and more of my own as well. Thanks to everyone for being part of this RR.


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

I'm late, but they are on the way Ann. Sorry!

Diana


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Oops!! Usually when a swap deadline is posted here, the closing date mentioned is the actual last date to send, not the date that's one day too late to send... so I got confused. :(

I've been very busy with harvest season and schoolwork. Had not been following this thread, so I missed the post that said "Remember to mail out your seeds before 9/30."

I had honestly taken the very first post which said "closing date for participation 9/30" to mean that mailing them today (9/30) would also be OK.

I wanted to pack & mail my seeds over the recent weekend to have 'em in the mail a couple days before 9/30. Couldn't do it sooner than that, because quite a few of my seeds weren't even ripe enough to harvest till Friday.

Nature sure has been uncooperative with me... Not just because of the later-than-usual seed ripening, either.

On Fri. I got hit with a yucky case of the flu which had me incapacitated till this morning!! :(

My seeds are in the mail, as of today.

I apologize for my confusion, and for delays due to uncooperative natural forces in my area.


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Did you email to let us know that you got the seeds? Or can you post. Just want to be sure they got there. Thanks!


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

I will try to post the last names of those people whose seeds I have received - have to do that because not everyone put their GW names on the packages. If you do not see your name please email me and let me know when the seeds went out. If I remember correctly I have about 21 packages. Later, Ann


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

OK, I'm packing up and am mailing today the following packages (please forgive me but I'm using last names only):
Layton, Brady, Reynolds and Strassman. More will get mailed out later but these I'm putting in the mail right now.


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Here are the packages that I am mailing this morning: Moyer, Hammons, Scatlin, Banks, Sheets

Becky Marcus - I was packing up yours this morning and accidently in my sleep deprived brain scratched out your address. Could you please resend? I can't find your email or I would have emailed you directly, sorry. Ann


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

I'm so excited I could pee my pants! Heehee!

Diana


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Mailing out 4 more packages: Mazzarella, Matney, Strock and Logsdon

More to follow...


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

These packages will go out tomorrow: Gainey, Hatfield, Hagen, Sandoval, Walter, Clement, McGowan, Christopher, Drance.

Doing the happy dance that I've shared lots of my own stash with everyone. Thanks for participating! Ann


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

is it done?


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Yeah, I am excited and will have something great to look forward to! Melinda


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Hi Ann,

Your last post sound like your done, but I don't see my name anywhere. Did you get the seeds I sent to you?

Thanks!
Diana


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Sorry for the confusion, I have just a few more packages which I'm packing up today. All should be in the mail by tomorrow. So keep an eye out!

The ones mailed today are: Yit Bien, Lescota, Fisher, Nicolai, Ruzicka, Smith


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

OK, here are the last packages that are ready to go. If I don't have your name listed on the last few posts then I never got your package. The last names are, drum roll, please: Greene and Marcus!!

Now I can officially say,thank you for participating in this round robin. I am so happy that I could host and share lost of my own stash with all of you! Thanks, Ann


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

Thanks so much for your hard work, Ann. Now you really can take a nap! :)


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

;)

Oh well, I guess my package never arrived! too bad that there wasn't some indication of this earlier on. I mailed on Spetember 13th! (perhaps there were no seeds appropriate for me) I usually include a note saying not to send me any if there are noneapropriate to my conditions.


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

*Applauding the hostess, I hand her a nice thank-you bouquet of flowers and pretty foliage from my garden.*


 o
RE: Fall Sweep RR

P.S. Try Winter Sowing if you haven't already. It was WAY cool last year and I can't wait for the winter to start on next year's plants.
