NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Here's the plan. In this swap, players will send in their various seeds, such as zinnias, cosmos, foxglove, etc. Once I've received them all, I'll combine all the seeds of each type, give them a good stir, then repackage them and send them back, giving you a seed "cocktail". The fun will be in not knowing what variety of seed you're planting until it comes up, giving you a big SURPRISE!!! Not only will this provide new varieties for you, but also provide a wider gene pool for your upcoming seeds, making for bigger, brighter blooms!

For example, say three people send in cosmos, seashells, picotee, and bright lights. Those three people would receive back a mixture of seashells, picotee, and bright lights cosmos. At the same time, ten people send in ten varieties of coneflowers... hot papaya, purple, double decker, etc. I'd mix up all of those coneflower seeds, and those ten people would receive back a sampling of all those different coneflowers.

If you'd like to participate, e-mail me for my address. Once you have it, send your seeds, with return postage and address label, to me. It would be great if they could all be here by November 12th. Seeds should be in their own packets, no more than 3 varieties per species, and no older than 2007. The number of packages of seeds you send in is completely up to you, whether it be 1 or 50, or somewhere in between. Just remember to put in each packet a fair number of seeds. I know that's a judgement call on your part, but there's no way I'm going to ask anyone to count out 100 foxglove seeds! Lol, that would drive anyone insane!

I think it would probably be a good idea to hold this to between 25-30 people, but we'll see what kind of response this gets and go from there.

So, cocktails anyone???

Sign me up, Dan. By holiday time, I will need a cocktail or two! LOL
Jeanne


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I am in, is it ok to request that you not get any veggie seeds.


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Great question Connie!

Everyone will only get back the same type of seeds that they send in ie... tomatoes get tomotaes, hollyhocks get hollyhocks, and so on.

Here's another idea for everyone, although not everyone need do it. IF you'd like to receive a mishmash of seeds, send in seeds for that too, and include a note that they are for the flower mix. I'll take all of those seeds, stir'em up real good, and then send back to all these players a smorgasbord of seeds, all mixed up. Sorta like pouring all the booze into a trashcan and drinking the results. When we did that in college, we never knew what we were drinking, and the flavor was always different, but man oh man, the RESULTS!!! (kinda gives me a hangover just thinking about it) Let's make this one flowers only, shall we? After all, wouldn't it look funny to have a pumpkin vine growing in the middle of your daisies???

Bartender, bring me another round!!!

Later...
-Dan


 o
another update...hehehe

Okay, the Goddess of Seed Swaps, Kym, says to request that, along with your seeds, please send a like number of empty seed envelopes for your return seeds to go into. Sounds like a good idea to me Kym! Thanks for the advice!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

This sounds interesting and fun.
Count me in.
Faye!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I'm confused but count me IN!!!! Jennifer :)


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Nevermind, not confused anymore! Still sounds fun and I absolutely would like to do it. Glad its not me though, can you imagine if alot of people sent in Asters and they were nothing but little seeds and flyaways,lol, your brave Dan!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I'm in on this one. I have a patch just right for a cocktail of fun. Thanks Dan.

Margo

Dan this sounds like fun. I love seed mixtures.
Bethb


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I cannot believe the response I'm getting to this! I've already received at least 10 e-mails from people wanting to participate, so I'm gonna go crazy and remove the limit of people participating. Lol, why not, eh??? (I just know O Holy Kym, the Great Goddess of Seed Swaps is gonna be cringing when she reads this! Hi Kym! hehehe)

You don't have to post here to participate, but you can if you'd like. And, if you wish, spread the word! I'm starting to wonder just how big we can make this...lol! We'll still keep the deadline at November 12th, which will give everyone plenty of time to harvest fresh seeds and clean out their stashes!

It's A Cocktail Party!! Pictures, Images and Photos


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I'm in!..considering this is pretty much how I garden anyways!!...LOL


 o

I have not gone through all of my seeds yet, but will be sending some:

Michelle


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Hi, I would like to join. Is it okay if my rudbeckia seeds are already a mixture? My grandson was born July 4, and when we got back from visiting, the drought had created a lot of rudbeckia seeds from flowers I never saw . . . I call this Oliver's mix, ha ha.

What I have in mind so far:

rudbeckia
dianthus
mexican hats
columbine
cypress vine
tithonia
echinacea
agastache

Will probably think of more before the deadline.

 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Hello Dan;
I started harvesting seeds today and my question is, can I send you a whole bunch of say clematis seeds and let you divie them up. I will send some seed envies but it would be so helpful to me and I can send more stuff if I do not have to package it separately.
Let me know.
Thanks.
diene


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

If anyone hasn't received an e-mail from me with my address, please let me know.

Don't forget, if you wish to mix the types of seeds before you send them, just keep the coneflowers with the coneflowers, the lilies with the lilies, etc, and send'em in. The more mixed up they are, the better the mixes will be when I send them back to you.

Gotta go, Glee starts its 2nd season in 17 minutes!

RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Hi Dan! Count me in too. I'm ready to seed swap again this year. Been harvesting seeds left and right.....or was it right to left? hehe

Now to find my labels I misplaced from last year.....

Alicia


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

So far I've only noticed people listing flower seeds and that is fine - I certainly have those - but if anyone wants veggies or herbs, you might want to post here so I will know. Otherwise, I won't bother to send anything but flowers.
Thanks all!
Jeanne


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Sorry I haven't been around. Child number 4 went off to college this past weekend and it has been a mental challenge. Only one more to go and then empty nest comes in to play.

I haven't been out to harvest yet but hope to get that done before I join the work force again.

Dan, what did you think of the Glee episode the other night. I was a little disappointed but am still going to be an avid watcher. On a scale of one to ten, I gave it a six. My college daughter absolutely loved it.


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I received a packet of seeds today. It had a lot of seeds, 5 stamps, but no address label, and the only part of the return address I can make out is that it came from the zip code 44224 in Ohio. Who sent it? And where is the return address label I need to send back seeds to the sender? Whoever sent these seeds needs to e-mail me with their address so I can send them some seeds in return once all the seeds have arrived.
Everyone please remember, along with the seeds, you need to include return postage, empty seed bags/envelopes, AND a return address label. Also remember that I will be using the original envelope to return your seeds to you.
-Dan


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Dan that is me. I wondered why I had a return label on the floor in the living room. It must have fallen out of the package. so sorry. I will email u my address.


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

that was an easy fix! I've got an address label written and with your seeds Connie. thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

thanks Dan. I do apologize. I know hosting a swap can get overwelming with keeping everything straight.. mising stuff makes it hard.


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

So how is everyone coming along? I've got a bunch more seeds drying in the greenhouse - got to keep them away from the wee beasties, lol! I harvested some open-pollinated sunflowers on Sunday, and there should be some good cross-breeding going on with those. There were yellows, reds, and bi-colors in that stand of sunflowers.

If anyone else would like to join, there's still plenty of time to do so! Any and all are welcome!

-Dan


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

So far I've received seeds from Connie and Shanta, which arrived today. Keep'em coming!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

How's everyone doing? Anyone getting ready to send in some seeds?


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Hello
Your gonna kick me but I lost the email with Your address in it.
Could you please send again
Thanks
Michelle


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Dan,

Morning Glories
Gaillardia
Sunflowers
Coneflower
Zinnia
Dianthus
Poppies
Salvia
Four o'Clocks
Butterfly Bush

It will be interesting to see what types come back!
Jeanne


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Hi,
I'd love to join the swap. Please send me your mailing address so I can get my flower seeds mailed ASAP.
Thanks, Jen


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

e-mails are sent, we've got four weeks to get all the seeds here so I can mix them up and send them back out again. if anyone needs my address again, please let me know. take care... -dan


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

The wind finally died down enough that I could get a start on fresh harvesting. I am going to finish up this weekend and get my package off to you Dan.

Finally got some much needed rain but that brought in cooler temperatures. At least there has been no frost or freeze yet so more time for seeds to mature and get harvested.


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Please add my name to the list. I have a few kinds of seeds and some for the mishmash. Who hasn't spilled seeds on the carpet?

 o

Well, I will get mine mailed soon. Just had a two week visit from my daughter and new grandson, so I haven't even looked at seeds... I started sorting before they came, and will get back to it on Saturday.

 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Dan, I put my package in the mail today. You should receive them by Thursday. Thanks for hosting this fun swap. Jen


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Today I received a coupld of huge, filled envelopes full of seeds from Michelle and Jeanne. Michelle, are you one of those people who've gone into McD's and ordered the full menu? I ask this because it looks like you received a seed catalog last spring, took one look at it, and ordered at least one of everything! WOW!

I have a question for you all, and would like your feedback. When you send something in and it's the only envelope of that particular type of plant, would you be okay with those seeds being thrown into the cocktail mixture? E-mail me or post your answer here, and I'll follow your preferences should this happen. Thanks!

-your bartender, Dan


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Dan, I have a feeling a couple of my seed packets will be an only one. I would not mind if it is thrown in a cocktail mix. As a matter of fact, I had more seeds I was going to include but thought some would be an only one of its type so didn't know if it would work. Makes more of an element of surprise.

Margo


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Sounds fine to me that if there is only one packet, you put it in a mixture of all different types.
Would it be too much trouble for you if that happens to give us a list of what seeds went into the mix so we might try to identify the seedlings when they come up? That would make it more fun (at least to me) than to have to wait until something fruits or flowers to guess what is it.
Can't wait to see what cocktails result!
Jeanne


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

I think a "recipe" or list of "ingredients" for the cocktail is a great idea! Not every bag of seed mix will be the same, but a list of the possible seeds contained therein would really help the guessing game next summer, wouldn't it? Great idea!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

hello
I knowI sent a little of this and a little of that, I don't have many seeds left after moving and I'm TRYING TO CONSENTRATE OF JUST 8 OR 10 KINDS FOR NOW ooh crap sorry about the caps, I'm still trying to get used to typing on my phone. It' such a tenny tinny keyboard. I do want the coneflowers to go with coneflowers and columbines withe columbine coctail and so on but all the other odds and ends are for the miss mix.
Thanks
Michelle


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

My seed package is on the way. I am looking forward to seeing the results next year.

No frost here yet and there was another threat last night. Give me a little more time to get to some things before they meet their demise. I was going to harvest today but there are strong winds, AGAIN, and since they can gust up to 40 miles an hour, I won't bother. Would end up with my own cocktail mix all over the property.

Thanks again for hosting this great swap Dan. Margo

If I haven't heard from these people by the 1st of November, I'll send out a reminder e-mail. Don't forget! All seeds should be here by November 12th so I can spend the weekend sorting, mixing, and divvying up so I can get them back into the mail hopefully on the 15th.

If anyone else would like to join in on this swap, there's still plenty of time to do so! All it takes is an e-mail letting me know you'd like to join, and I'll reply with my address so you know where to send your seeds to.

HAVE YOURSELVES A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

I must have used an address label with my "real name", Elizabeth on it.
Sorry for the confusion.
I've been a bit (a bit???? hummm) spaced out recently. I'll try to do better.
bb


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE STILL SENDING SEEDS IN FOR THIS SWAP?
Unless I hear otherwise, I'll start sorting seeds Wednesday evening. It looks like it's gonna take awhile... which is fine by me! You all have gone over and beyond my expectations!!!

***applauding all the players***


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Hello Dan;
I was planning on sending you some seeds but I really was not wanting anything back so you can start sorting any time you want. I hope to get some stuff out to you tomorrow but do not wait on me.
diene


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

Diene, it's looking like I won't be able to finish sorting the seeds until Saturday or Sunday, which should give those seeds plenty of time to arrive. Are you sure you don't want any seeds back?
-Dan


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

It's Friday! And that means that tomorrow, after work, I'll begin mixing those seed cocktails! How cool is that?
-Dan


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

...beginning to take inventory before I start mixing drinks...


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

now that taking inventory is done, I really do need a drink! lol!
Everyone sent in a great selection of seeds, but the Humanitarian Award definitely goes to Michelle Reynolds. She sent in a HUGE amount of seeds and only asked for certain ones back. Not only will I be using about half of her seeds for the Big Mix, but Michelle also provided the matching seeds to go to a good number of people who were the only other ones to send in certain types. ***applauding you all***
The Top Three Types of Seeds were Marigolds, Cosmos, and Morning Glories.
The Big Mix Cocktail will include over 50 different types of seeds!!! And yes, I will be sending a "recipe" with the mix so you can at least try to guess what's growing in your gardens.

And on that note, I'm going to take a break for awhile. I've been at this for the past 4 hours. It's fun though, so it's all good! Don't you just love playing with seeds? Of course, having Stella's "help" did affect productivity just a bit...lol!


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

9 types of seeds to mix and re-distribute, but my eyes are fuzzy and I've got a belly-ache in my head for the past few hours, so I'll finish this up tomorrow night.

stay tuned...


 o
RE: NEW: Holiday Seed Cocktails

OKAY! ALL the sorting is done, the recipe is printed, and all of the envelopes are sealed and ready to fly back home! YAYYYYYY! I'll be putting them into the mailstream later today once I've finished running my route.
For those of you who sent stamps, I put them on your envelopes. One or two of those might need some extra postage, and those will arrive home with a little postage due.
Two of you sent money, so I'll be going to the window with those and sending them on their way.
All in all, it's been a lot of fun, and I'd like to thank EVERYONE for their contributions! We went into this as newbies, having never done this type of swap before, but we all came through it okay and will be looking for some great surprises in our gardens next year.
If any of you have questions, please feel free to let me know.
Please post here when your package arrives, okay? Thank you!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
-Dan
