Fruitcake Seeds

Legend has it that there is only one fruitcake in the world and it just keeps getting passed from house to house. Do you think this ever happens with seeds?
Thought it might be worth a good-natured-chuckle to tell each other about those packs of seeds that we just keep trying to pass along but keep coming back.
Thanks again to all who have traded!

Ok, I'll bite!

Does anyone ever grow Purple Top White Globe Turnips? I made the mistake of buying two packets in the spring. I planted half a packet. They grew. I found out my husband and I hate turnips. I let them go to seed.

I have had the SAME packet of turnip seeds come back to me in various trades!

RE: Fruitcake Seeds

LOL Boo! I guess no one else likes then either!! : )

George, good idea for a thread!

RE: Fruitcake Seeds

Wow... the same packet. That's going to be a hard one to top.
Great story becky!

RE: Fruitcake Seeds

that's funny Becky! I haven't had any yet but I keep waiting..I think it's going to be moonflowers...everyone passes those along!

RE: Fruitcake Seeds

I've gotten some of my own packets back too. I guess the swap host, in the end of her sorting, though that my name being on the label meant they were FOR me, and forgot that everything coming out of my envy had that! I know that doing all of that sorting has to be really mentally exhausting, so it was no biggie.

I also had a group swap where I sent in 3 packets of yellow 4 O'clocks. I got back...3 packs of yellow 4 O'clocks, from _different_ traders. So then, I couldn't even feel sure they were truly yellow, and I worried when I did trade them on! :)
