Hello everyone, I started a seed train last year and it was so fun to get new things, I've decided to start it again. it stopped just for the summer. Ive emailed the people who participated last spring and a few of them would like to do it again. but we still need some more people. Ive got three ready to go and ill start it at five as that is what we had last year and it worked very well. if you would like to join feel free to email me or leave a post, thanks. ill post the rules soon.

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Hi, I may want to participate. Will it be garden seed? I don't need flowers. Do you have a link to the one you did last year? That way I can read about it and what is involved.

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

here are the rules. Thanks.
1. Everyone from any state is welcome to join.
2. All seed train members will need to supply me with name
and address thru pm, your garden web name and address will be on a list, which will be enclosed in the seed box. In addition, I will need an e-mail address where you can be easily
reached, and your phone number. These will be kept confidential,
used only by me and only if you cannot be reached by PM when it is
your turn to get the box.
2. Seeds only please, no bulbs as this makes the weight go up
3. Each person is responsible for paying to ship the seeds to the next person.
4. Please package seeds in paper envelopes or seed envelopes again, to save on weight and postage.
5. All seeds are welcome, from commercial packages to home saved.
6. Please post when you receive the box so we know you received it.
This way I can contact the next person.
7. Likewise please post when you ship the box.
8. If I can't contact the next person in line via forum, email or phone. They will be skipped.
9. Please try to send the box on as quickly as possible,
within a week at most, so that the train can make at least a couple circuits.
10. Take as much as you would like from the box and replace with a like amount of seed.
11. Please post to this thread and let other riders know if there is something special you have to
offer, and/or if you have requests, it makes it more fun when you know there is a little
extra something special coming your way.

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I received the box Tuesday October 9 and will be shipping out today October 11 to Gina in New Jersey. Thanks very much everyone. I added some basil, pumpkins, fennel, spinach and some purple tomatillos. I got the tomatillos last year from some wonderful person on the seed train last time we did this and they grew GREAT!! I just sowed the seeds outdoors and they were vigorous and covered with HUGE tomatillos that actually did turn purple. I was thrilled!! Thanks again!!

 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Has the package reached hementia8? I know Thanksgiving is a day away and the postal service doesn't deliver on Thanksgiving. Hope everything is alright as I am next in line for the package.

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving from Texas ya'll!


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

HAPPY THANKSGIVING
I have not received it yet
I have been in contact with the P.O and they advise they have not seen a package for me
Has anyone heard from ladebugz
She has been posting regularly on the seed exchange.last post two days ago
Maybe she forgot about this round robin and received the package thinking it was another trade,as she seems to have quite a few going.
If I do not receive by Dec,1 and do not hear from her I will start a new box if all of you would like
Charlie


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Again I'm really sorry this is going so slow folks, the rules are going to be changed if there is a next round and some people will not allowed to participate again. I finally got a hold of ladebugz and they said it has been sent , so lets hope so. Have a great thanksgiving all,and hope to hear good news soon.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Not in today's mail
Why doesn't ladebugz post here explaining the reason for the de-railment
Shipped to the wrong place,where?
Are there secret players we do not know about?
Said shipped to me on Nov.12 or was it shipped to someone else?
Said shipped to me again prior to Nov.21
Mobile is only 70 mi.away and normally takes 2 days
Do I sniff a sniffers
Charlie


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I feel horrible about this, I will send each of you that is left a box of seeds for all your trouble, I dont have much left as I put most in the box but ur welcome to what I have


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

As far as i know there are no secrect players, i dont understand why ladebugz wont post either, the first time i got ahold of them they said they were shipping it the next day and the next time i got ahold of them they said it has been shipped and that was awhile ago. I dont understand, this was where everyone as suppose to share, not run away with the box of seeds. Frustrated......!!!!


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I have plenty of seeds mostly edibles
I can start a new box Dec1 if all agree
That is if we have not heard from ladebugz by that time.
Charlie


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Well since I haven't gotten to the box, I would appreciate another go at it on December 1st. All the anticipation and to not receive anything by now isn't cool. And don't beat yourself up rollinrockell, you did nothing wrong. You're a wonderful swap host! :)

If none of us hears back from ladebugz, I will personally post a negative review for them to warn others.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Still no box or word from ladebugyz
What size box do I need to get from P.O.
I can almost fill the medium flat rate box
The small one does not hold much
Charlie


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

thank you charlie for doing this, wish I knew where the other box was,no word from ladebugyz. The medium box should work, i just ordered more seeds so i should have something to contribute, darn I was looking forward to the purple tomatillo coming back from last year.
please include a tracking number if you can, their now mandatory.

oh since you don't have the address list, ill email it to you

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I am most definitely ready! I am so glad I got another shot at this trade. And I am definitely going to do the round robin "full circle" in hopes that bricore has anymore ali baba watermelon? That sounded interesting!

And I finally heard from ladebugz. I totally forgot I did a small trade with them about 2 weeks ago. They claimed they didn't send my end of the trade back to me because they received my bubble mailer with a damaged label so they didn't know where to send their end of the trade. When I told them to email me so we could discuss it, I asked about the box from this trade and I was told by them that it has been a bad two weeks and they had been in the hospital. I was also told they would be released Sunday and would have the package sent "come hell or high water". We shall see.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

The new box is on its way DC no.
0312 2120 0000 4926 9375
I topped it off with nest egg gourds
The seeds are probably not viable,however any one into arts and crafts can find use for them
Diana you may want to see what you get in the Bean swap before you re ship
You may pick duplicates otherwise,besideswhat you do not want of the bean swap others here may want
Just a thought
If the first box ever gets here I will hold it ransom until the new box comes back to me
I will then consolidate the two
I do not think I want to pay shipping on 2 more boxes,just one more
Charlie


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

ransom eh? sounds reasonable, I will ship the new box to you as soon as I get word the old one is back. Thank you again for creating the second box.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Well hopefully all the mailings for the beans swap will go out soon so I may include duplicates in the box from that swap.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

Are you skipping grdngramma, REALBUSY,wilkerson and moonfire?
Did they opt out on the second round?
Some of the varieties have more than 3 packs.
I was hoping that moonfire would also offer her excess beans from the BEAN SWAP
Charlie

 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I'd love to participate in the 2nd round and if I have any excess beans from the bean swap will be happy to add some of those as well ... I wasn't aware if I was skipped or not?...I included a tracking # with mine the 1st time and will do so the 2nd time too...


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

nope im not skipping anyone, just thought i would send it back to you first charile in case the second box catches up with you then it will go in the reverse order that i send it this time. just havent made a list of who has opted out and who has opted in the for the second round yet,


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I do not think that would work
I think it should go as orinally planned
I do not want my seeds back but would like whatever MoonFire and the others should add.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I'm confused now on which direction the box(es) are going lol. I DO want to go another round though! I want a chance to look through everyone else's seeds. I love growing a little bit of everything and seed saving. :-)


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

After you get the new box it should go to grdngramma,
thence reabusy,wilkerson and moonfire,that is if they want to participate in a second round
When I receive the new box I will consolidate it with the first box,if I ever receive same.
It wil then go to domesticDiana then Kelli then finally to you,end of line
You get to keep all that is in the final leg
This way everyone gets a peak at what everyone else has added
Charlie

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

That will work too, not counting on the old box though. so guess were going the same direction as this time, I need to email peeps to see who is going a second round. Then i will make a list and update the rules. I want to keep the box going, so there will pro be a third round, not sure with whom yet.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I just received the box! So happy! I am still waiting on the bean swap. The host said she has finals in school right now and will mail out as soon as she can. Do you guys want me to mail the box after I received the bean swap seeds to add to the box? Or should I just go ahead and choose what I want and add some of the seeds I already have?


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I wish that you would wait for the BEAN SWAP as it looks like I will only have the benifit of one round
The more you swap out of the new box would be better for me.It does not look like the first box will show.
Charlie

 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

herbs would be awesome, my sister wants to do an herb garden this year.


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

lets get this train moving again now that the holidays are done


 o
RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I got a good variety from the bean swap but it's just enough of each variety for me to plant and maybe set a few aside in case they don't do well to try again...so I really don't have any swappable beans from the swap...got a good variety for self garden tho so can't complain about that swap...only posting that here as i know some were looking forward to me being able to add some from that swap to the round robin...so the option stands that i am willing to go to the local farm supply and try to find some new and interesting variety of veggies to trade out or i can skip out this next round...i'd like to participate in another round but i also don't want anyone to feel cheated and I know with the lost package out there some won't have much to choose from...i'm gonna leave it up to hementia and rollinrockell to decide...just let me know in time to get to the farm supply if it'll be coming back around my way so i will have some new seeds to swap...thanks, Dianne

Seed train arrived safe and sound on 01/11/2013. It's huge!!! I spent the entire evening pouring over all the wonderful things in there. Not quite done yet, and I work Monday and Tuesday so I'll get to the post office on Wednesday the 16th and get it shipped off with the tracking number and such. Thanks everyone.

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

If it's not too late, I would love to join in this round!
I've been keeping up with the swap, watching to see how it's progressing, and it seems to be doing really well! I previously used to start many seed round robin boxes, and did tons of swaps/host swaps.
I'm ready to start again... :).
I'll send in my info-

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I sent the train on it's way to McHenry, Illinois for it's next stop. My apologies, I ran out of little seed bags so I put larger amounts in snack-size baggies and you can take what you want, didn't want to waste another day going across town to buy some more. I put delivery confirmation on the box and the tracking number is 03120090000088492884. Thanks to all who contributed, I got some great beans and such.

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

I can't wait. I will be watching for it to arrive here in McHenry and let you all know when it does. I will try to be quick with it and getting it moving on it's way again. It's like Christmas in January. Can't wait.

RE: UPDATE: seed train part 2

BOX ARRIVED!!! Funny story....I received a text yesterday while at work asking if I had ordered something. I responded with no but where did it come from. My bf said that it came from South Dakota. I told him that it must be the seed box. He says that it is much too big and heavy to be seeds. I told he could open it but he said he would leave it for me. He thinks Im nuts with all my seeds. He was totally shocked when i did open the box and out came all the seeds packets. It was so much fun to go through he even helped out of curiosity.

Anyway, I will make short work of it and get it on its way to Gina.
