 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa Seed Swap (3rd Annual)

I feel like my list is a bit "picky" so I apologize for that. I have been contending with heat, drought, rabbits, and deer --- so not easy to grow things the past few years. Much of what I plant for 2011 will be in containers or in a very limited area so I can water that one place really well every day. If you have a recommendation for me other than weeds and invasives, consider it added to my list. LOL

'Joey' Lamb's Tail
Corkscrew Vine
Dill
Parsley
Lavender
Thyme
Horn of Plenty Hybrid Summer Squash
Agastache 'Rose Mint'
Begonia (any)
Coleus, especially the newer varieties
Eucalyptus
Geranium or Scented Geranium (any)
Pentas lanceolata (any)
Plectranthus 'Silver Shiled'
Sedum - any but prefer taller varieties like Autumn Joy
Spinach 'Space Hybrid'
Salvia Whopper Lighthouse

A few notes...

1. You send to as many people as you want...You will recieve a list of addresses via email once the sign ups are over.

***everyone MUST send me a list of whom ur mailing to ( not what ur sending ! )

2. You make or purchase cards..and choose how many varieties of seeds you want to mail per person.

3. Yes, some people will receive the same seed more then once ..thankfully in the past it has been a nice variety of them, PLUS extras can be used for trading.

4. When you start going to the mailbox the WHOLE month of December and find something OTHER then BILLS...It truly brings out the TRUE meaning of Chirstmas !!

*** It isnt about what is sent..it is the thought that matters !

5. Newbies are welcome to join ! Some years they have sent cards just to be included in wishing a Happy Holiday ( but isnt required )

Any other questions feel free to send me an email !

RE: NEW: Secret Santa Seed Swap (3rd Annual)

Count me in! I've never done this swap before. It sounds like fun and I already see a bunch of people I can send seeds to.

I'll post my list tonight.


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa Seed Swap (3rd Annual)

Hi Kym! I was surprised to see this swap posted already, since I haven't really started thinking about Christmas yet, but this is one of my favorite swaps, so sign me up.

Margo (Smitties), you asked about how to decide who to send to when you can't send to everyone that you have items for. The names in the hat isn't a bad idea! The way I did it last year though, was to make a list of everyone that I could fill wishes for, and then I started with the ones that I had several items on their list. Then, I moved on to people that I had something for on their list that was unique or unusual, that I thought they might not receive from others. If I only had one or two items on someone's list, and they were very common seeds, I was hoping someone else would fill those wishes if I couldn't. Anyway, hope this helps!

So here is my wishlist:

Any red, or yellow Petunia
Any yellow, orange, or red Gazania
Any yellow, orange, or red Snapdragon
Nicotiana, any true red (not pink or purple), or green, or chocolate
Thunbergia (Black-eyed Susan Vine) -Terracotta Skies' or other non-pink variety
Salpiglossis 'Royal Chocolate'
Any red, or yellow California poppy (I have plenty of orange)
Any yellow, or orange Portulaca
Any yellow, or orange Penstemon
Any yellow, orange, or red Pansy
Any yellow, or red Geum (I have orange already)
Your favorite yellow, orange, or red sun-loving flower that maybe I forgot to mention, LOL!
Serrano Pepper
Dragon's Claw Pepper
Leutschauer Paprika Pepper
NuMex Big Jim Pepper
NuMex Sunset Pepper
Fresno Pepper
Your favorite mild to medium non-hybrid pepper for salsas, etc. that I didn't mention!
A large, heirloom paste-type tomato that isn't mealy and bland!
Cheddar Cauliflower
Copra Onion
Amarillo Oro Melon
Osh Kirgizia Melon
Okra good for container growing, such as Baby Bubba, or Little Lucy

Wow, it was hard to come up with a list this year!!!

Wow, I have 14 people on my list so far!

My tip:

I make a pile of seeds I want to share on my desk.
Then I use the find feature (Ctrl F on a PC) to search the whole post for any matches. Then I can quickly find anyone that wants what I have to give.

It's time for another guessing game! What would Christmas be without carols? Well, I was going to pass out a list of carols for you all to sing, but I tripped and the list got scrambled up, so you're gonna have to figure out what it is that we're all going to be singing and hearing on the radio for the next couple of months! Here's the list!

heolnettrsif
wynngaiaemara
hghndrhvhwslgnaeeeaeeaoi

rnmgtuoeyridegaadonrvrabener

llllhooyyjmristsahc

Karen or Margaret could either of you share how you make seed tape? I would like to give that a try.

RE: NEW: Secret Santa Seed Swap (3rd Annual)

Keiki,

I am making seed paper which is not the same as seed tape.

If you send me an e-mail I will be happy to give you information about some websites that have very good instructions.

Keiki I tried seed paper today...not sure how the tape works.

I blended some paper and water in my blender, poured the mix into a sink with a frame that had a screen stretched over.

then I sprinkled seeds and flower leaves on top. I removed from water. then flipped over on towel then pressed with a sponge to get more water out.

Seems easy but I am not doing the best job. We will see how the paper looks when dry.

Hi everyone. I have not checked this thread since I first signed up for the swap. Sadly, I lost a family member. Things are finally getting back to normal, if there is such a thing as normal. I will update my page and post my wish list sometime this weekend. Looks like I missed out on alot of fun, but I'm sure there is more to come. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Got to get started on my list.

More Song Titles!

This is probably gonna earn me some coal in my stocking, but I'll risk it. This game is open to everyone. Here are 30 song titles, and your job is to be the first person to correctly post all 30 titles. Each day I will post an update with 1 letter of the alphabet in its correct place within the titles, so be checking back here daily! The first person to correctly post all 30 titles in their correct order will win a music CD with all of the songs on it. There will be no second prize. Anyone involved with this swap, excluding only myself, may try to win. So, get out your thinking caps, play yourself some Christmas music, and have fun!!! I'll be back with the letter "w" tomorrow! MUHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!!!!!
