To answer Belinda, which I have already done by email...three total, including you, sent to my work address. The address is a mail room that sorts for 8 different offices. I notified them, and received the other two envelopes, postage and all. I do not appreciate the insinuation that I am a thief. I have an impeccable swap reputation on DG, Idig, and did not have any issues with this swap last year. I told you that I would refund your postage and money that you included if you give me your Paypal info (if you have it), or mail you cash with a tracking code.

To everyone else, please let me know by the 31st if you're having an issue sending your seeds. If so, I'll wait on you...if I hear nothing I'm going to finish sorting :)

I'm emailing everyone (I think) about the new thread.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

...and we are out of blue tomatoes. If more come in and are not on any more wishlists that have not been fulfilled, I'll post about it. They seem to be pretty popular :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Does anyone NOT want Yucca? Many people have sent it in, and I'd hate for it to go to someone who didn't want it.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I'm up for some Yucca.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Awesome! I'll put a packet in your baggie.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

First of all, we already have Yucca (weird plants,...around town some are still blooming!). Even so, if I wind up with seeds for more,...I'll simply grow them. Nice flower spikes, and once the soft, greeny chlorophyll of the leaves are pounded out, you're left with some pretty good usable natural cordage. - As for the doubters and *accusers*, please check the following links:

If you sent seeds, you'll get seeds! Don't sweat it! I mean life's roads are few that don't have speed bumps here-n-there. Take me, for example. Just found out today I am afflicted with Shingles.

Heidi,..you go girl! Whenever my seeds get here, they get here. Not worried about it. :) - Have a great week, everyone!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

:-) Ah man, shingles suck. I hope yours heal quickly.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Oh Darrin! I am so sorry about your having Shingles. My son had it and he was in enormous pain. It got into his eye and did some permanent damage. Take care of yourself!!

Seed swaps are crap shoots. You take what you get and hope for a few winners. I'll take my Yucca, but if there is one other than filamentosa or Hesperaloe parviflora (false red Yucca), which I have plenty of both, send the outlier. Otherwise, it's fine.

RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I would prefer no yucca. But, as others said...it is a swap. I will just be happy. I can always reswap what I do not want to keep. Thanks again, Heidi!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Cryptid....ouch! Feel better soon!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I'll take yucca! Heck, I'll take anything! Also, I have a ton of Indigo Rose seeds currently fermenting, so if anyone doesn't get them in the swap, and wants some, let me know :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I will be grateful for any and all seeds received from the swap. Some seeds I will love, others I will have no interest in, and many more I will not know anything about and will enjoy the opportunity to research and learn all about them. One of the things I most enjoy about swaps is being exposed to all the amazing varieties that are available throughout the countryside but may not be known about locally. I truly appreciate all the efforts and thoughtfulness that the host(ess) of any RR swap undertakes. Thanks in advance!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Y'all rock :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

me too, i echo the sentiment of being happy with whatever i get. i also think its cool to get seeds of plants i wouldnt have thought about otherwise, and to look them up and get to know them.

if its not something i want to plant i will give it away or swap it out later. plus i supply some community gardens, and they are usually not picky either. life is better when you are happy with the as is =)

though, indigo rose tomatoes sounds pretty cool =) i am not even that into tomatoes in general (this climate isnt great for them) but very intriuging...blue tomatoes =)

anywho -thanks heidi for taking the time out of your life to hook this up for us! you rock socks !

RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Alrighty...I'm waiting on one person who sent her seeds earlier in the week, and then I can finish sorting. Hoping they don't take too long to arrive, everyone's will be mailed back next week :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Yippie! Thanks. :):)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Perfect -- I am always excited to receive swap packages back in the mail and to discover all the lovely seeds awaiting me :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Me too! I love seeing what everyone sends...what everyone likes and dislikes.


 o

Yay! I cannot wait! Thanks! :)

Received the last package...I should finish sorting and have everyone's mailed by this weekend!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Heidi, I'll pass on the Yucca because the one I have produced 100's of seeds. Can't wait to see what seeds you are sending my way!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

No problem :)

Some seeds went to the PO today, and the rest will follow next week. I got a seed counting headache last night, lol! If you're on DG as well and are waiting for wishlist seeds from AmandaESQ, I'm still waiting on them.

I received my seeds today!!!! Thank you so much!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

You're welcome! My home computer has clunked out, so I'm trying to fit in a spare few minutes to use my work one.

If I don't respond quickly to anyone, that's why.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Got mine today! It was a super exciting day at the mailbox - 3 packages of seeds and one seed + plant, and NO BILLS! :)

Thanks everyone for the awesome stuff!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

That's a good mail day!

I'm off line until tomorrow...WHY do computers have to be so expensive?


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I received my seeds on Saturday, just now had a chance to post. Thank you so much everyone!
Im still going through everything - FUN!


 o

I'm offline again until tomorrow...everyone enjoy the rest of your day :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

received an awesome package of seeds!!!!! so many thanks to everyone!

and me too, off to research the ones i dont know yet =)

heidi if i lived closer i might take a look at your computer, i have a knack for that sort of thing. if you want to try to troubleshoot...you could email me? if not...thats fine...just thought i would throw that out there. not sure how far gone it is....and well i m not a professional, but i have worked on many computers and fixed them up for money here and there

. this is how i get old computers for free (like the one i am typing on now)...by getting them broken and fixing them....

anyway thanks again for taking the time to sort all those seeds!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Yahoo, my seeds got here today! Thanks so much everybody for all the goodies. I'm going to be a busy girl, LOL.
And Heidi, a special thanks to you for all the work putting these together for us.

 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Enjoy!

I think it's just had it. It's old, from 2002, and it just stopped working. I bought a new power cord, and nothing. It worked well to be 11 years old, and I kept it up, Windows-wise.

Time for a new one! Glad holiday sales are going on.

Until tomorrow...


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Hi Heidi,

I am just checking if my seeds were mailed.

Thank you,
Jeremy Starke


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Yup, messaged you as I'm about to leave for the day :)

Everyone's were stamped & dropped in the firm's mail center...from there they go to USPS. It's cheaper for me if postage is due, and it's easier. I'll check tomorrow to see if something was left behind. I got a deduction from my check yesterday from postage from the packages...so I know they're getting there ;)

Until tomorrow...


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Hi Heidi -- I noticed that I was slightly short on the return postage and have sent you an email.

Thanks -- Jessica


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Jessica...that's totally up to you. Your call.

Everyone's seeds have been mailed UNLESS you are on Dave's Garden...someone thought they mailed request seeds for everyone, but did not. She's supposed to mail the out this weekend. I believe I messaged all of those on Dave's Garden.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Leila, I'll print your suggestions and try them when I get home. Thanks! I hate being computerless at home.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Won't feel right about it if I didn't. Mailing today -- Thanks again for hosting.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Aw, thanks.

Leila, thanks so much for the suggestions, but the computer still didn't fire up :/ I'm glad sales are next week :)

Enjoy your weekend, all! I'm logging off until Monday.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Apparently my seeds were in yesterdays mail.
Got them out this morning.

I am pretty happy with those I got from my list of wants WOOT....thank you to those who specifically did that!

Big disappointment, I didn't get any of the Indigo Rose Tomato seeds as requested :( BUT I did get a few AWESOME OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting them in MY ENVY HEIDI seeds,(one was a corn I was looking for and a melon I was looking for!!!! HURRAY!!!!!)
I did get some doubles and a couple of packs back I sent in LOL. That's alright, I have a Round Robin seed box coming in a few days so those can go in there.

Over all I am happy....thank you. I know a lot of work goes in these and it isn't always easy to put an envy together.
It all is appreciated and I had fun doing it. Thanks again, now I have to go research some I have no clue what they are ;).

 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I'm on my phone & can't read your whole post (I don't think...it looks like it cuts off), but if you got seeds that you sent in, they were mixed in with the bonus seeds. 3 or 4 people sent in 100, and wanted less back, as they were very particular with their lists and wanted nothing extra. Kinda of hard when there are 62 swappers, lol! All extra seeds were put into a box, mixed around, and counted out. I'll look back about the blue 'mater seeds when I get home...I was sure I stuck a packet in your baggie...I kept a list of what I sent people.

And enjoy the corn! I'm glad it found a good home, as it's usually on many "do not want" lists.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I received my seeds yesterday - thank you so much! And although I didn't send in those specific stamps (hopefully you got the ones I sent) - the flower stamps were pretty!

I am looking forward to trying some of the new stuff this year - some things that I hadn't thought of.

Thank you for hosting!

Mandy


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

You're welcome :)

A few people didn't include postage, so I just went down the line by stamp-type. Matching flags to flags, flowers to flowers, etc. My mail lady gives me a weird look when I mix stamps.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Heidi,...sadly, I haven't received my seeds yet,, and it's been a while. I can only imagine I either woefully sent inadequate postage and/or the package is somehow, somewhere, locked into an USPS black hole event horizon spiral. Sure glad others of us, here, are joyously receiving their happy seed packages. :) What can I say,... it's just the way things have been going `round here this month. :/ Hit me with Shingles, slap my face,... "Wheeeeeee...!" One dang stupid stop-me-from-accomplishing-any-real thing at all situation after another...particularly if it involves pain. "Who th' friggin' heck did I tick-off in a past life, I wonder, eh??!! :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

NP Heidi, I am sure I will get some of the mater seeds eventually....hopefully before next planting season.
I was THRILLED with that particular corn and I know these aren't always easy to do, TRUST me I know....
It was worth it to me to get the seeds in there I REALLY wanted (aside from the maters, I will check again but pretty sure they weren't in there) I can't wait to be able to grow out the corn so I can have a good supply.....
Thanks again I am happy.
I also noticed you had to add postage on mine as well.
If you have a paypal I can gift it to you let me know if you do, if so and I gift it you nor I will be charged a fee.

Cryptid, I messaged you!

Aquadragonfly, I messaged you, too.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Oh cryptid, I am so sorry you are having a horrible time at this time of year.
I am sure your seeds will arrive soon, sometimes it just takes a while. I hope they are not in the postal gridlock system though.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING...and good cheer and all....I'd say it'll get better from here on in but if it is as bad as you say I will not even attempt to tempt fate in your area lol.

Heidi, you should have confirmation by now :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

"Leila, thanks so much for the suggestions, but the computer still didn't fire up :/ I'm glad sales are next week :) "

aw too bad.
i started you off with some easy quick fix type stuff.
theres other things for sure, if you still want to fix it. its a puzzle, when things go wrong with computers...i get all into it until i figure it out, its much harder if i dont actually see it and just work it out, but i would still try to troubleshoot the problem if you want.

the next easy fix things to try might be to reseat both the hard drive and the memory, by taking them both out and then placing them both in again. this is easier than it might sound, most computers make it so that you can get at the hard drive and memory sticks by unscrewing some of the panels on the back.
though all of this stuff only addresses really easy problems....it would help to know what happened right before it stopped working. was it acting weird? or did it just not turn on one day? does it flash lights?

if you are interested in continuing to try email me. it cant hurt to try if youve already given up...but you might be reluctant to go much further...cause if its not an easy fix type problem...then you get into replacing parts, possibly soldering and stuff like that. BUT a LOT of problems that people have are some weird simple thing...they think the computer is toast when it wouldve been easy to deal with, if only you can figure out exactly what the problems are....


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I'd love to fix it...it would be much cheaper than buying one over the weekend :)

I'll print it out & take it home with me.

Nope, not acting weird, not noisy. The little orange light does flash at times, but not anymore than normal. It seemed to flash when the CPU usage was high.

Unscrewing & screwing back sounds a lot easier on my pocketbook :)

Thanks, Leila!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

hmmm so you are still getting a little orange light?
like when you push the power button does a light come on? do a few lights come on?

sometimes those lights are a kind of code...if they flash or come on when failing to boot it can tell you the problem if you look them up. like if a few of them come on for a bit, but it fails to boot...it can be an error message telling you why it wont boot.

reseating the hard drive and reseating the memory sticks is a good easy try.....and it does actually work sometimes, being that they werent quite connected or got loose somehow.

does it make any noise at all? like when you turn it on, or try to anyway, when you push the power button is there any sound of anything coming on...or totally quiet?

that it wasnt acting strange and just suddenly wouldnt turn on could be a good sign. indicates it might be fixable, most bad problems build up...so it could be one of those simple things....

i suppose we should move to email...although i guess this thread is nearly finished....


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Totally quite when booted up. The light on the back of the tower stays green...the little oblong light on the front under the power button flashes when games or videos are played for a while.

When I tried to play around with it a few nights back, there was no sound when I pushed the power button. I even tried a new power cord, thinking that was it.

My email is missreadsalot87@yahoo.com. I can check it on my phone a lot easier than accessing this page.

Thanks!

If anyone was brave enough to go shopping today I hope you came out safe...a local lady was beamed by a flying tv :/ Some dude apparently decided it was a good idea to start tossing tvs at Walmart. Yeah...bad idea.

did my seeds go out yet??

I'm about tired of waiting, TBH. I'm ready to clear out the remaining packages!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Heidi, thanks for messaging me as well! Apologies for not responding directly, as I should have, but having shingles can be kind of distracting. The way my situation currently stands, I'm scarcely on the computer at all these days, except at night for a while,...although, yesterday, I was online waaaayyyy longer than I should have been and definitely paid for it this morning and early afternoon. I refused to take any pain killers though, as they can cause nearly as much discomfort as they do relief,...and worse. - Anyway, the way I see it, the seeds get here whenever they get here. Thanks again for hosting this! :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Oh! I hope you feel better soon! Shingles suck. Try and stay happy and stress free...when my brother had it a few years ago, his doctor told him that...along with taking his meds. I cannot take pain meds...my gut doesn't like them.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Received tons of seeds yesterday. Thanks a lot and appreciate you hard works, sorting, mailing and other headaches :D

DId I sent you 3 postages? if so I need to send you 1 more and delivery confirmation charge. Let me know.

Thanks again. Can't wait Spring to sow those seeds.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Thanks, Heidi,...still working on it. Nearly every morning , generally quite early, I really want a double hit of 200mg Ibuprofen to counteract the soreness and pain I'm experiencing, but I continue to resist and haven't taken pain meds in well over a week. Basically, at this point, I'm working to adjust to this new level of discomfort while maintaining as much overall functionality as I can. Good news is, I'm getting a lot better at it and accomplishing more. Can't expect everyone to remain understanding forever. Pain meds don't really agree with me all that well either, particularly the narcotic variety it seems (although, years ago, when I had pancreatitis, I learned to nearly love Demerol). Super-uber majorly sux that you can't take oral pain meds at all. :( I mean, like, holy criminey... Anyway, at least I'm not looking so much like a zombie-ogre fresh from the battlefield anymore, although I still wear my hoodie's hood up covering the adversely affected left side of my face. More for the benefit of others than myself, particularly in keeping with the season. It's going on 1 1/2 months now. Yippeee skip. :/

BTW, I've likewise been made aware of the role of stress regarding Shingles. Alas, with my wife being a recovering cancer patient, our 29-yr-old son being an unreasonable autistic and my wife's 89-yr-old mother and older sister often at odds, a stress-free environment in our universe is, well,...you get the idea. (-sigh-) We just do the best we can, like so many others. :)


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

I am such an IDIOT!!! I totally cannot believe I actually failed to post here that I received my HUGE, wonderfully jam-packed package of seeds,...many daze ago. Oooohhhh,...yeaaaahh,...things have been kinda stretched-n-stressed around here, but not every day all the time, so no excuses. You all have been so very, very generous and I am extremely grateful-n-happy. :) - Heidi, I can't possibly apologize enough. Elsewise,...thank you sooooooo much for hosting! Hope you all had a fantabulous Christmas and wishing you a 2014 of unequalled health, happiness and gardening bliss! - For all of you who donated seeds with your GardenWeb usernames on the packets, I'll be leaving each of you positive "Rate & Review Exchanges" forum posts,...especially for you, Heidi. As for myself, I fully intend posting an accurate, apologetic report of my screw-up, here, to my own R&R thread, as is only fair.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

No, no need! It's totally okay. I figured you were busy with holidays, or still ill...no worries :) Enjoy, and have a happy 2014! I have the flu, so hopefully the rest of my year will be better.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Received my fat package of seeds. Thanks Heidi for the nice selection.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Heidi, I hope you feel better!


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Aw, thanks! I'm still sick! It's not fun, lol! I can work from home (at least some of it), so it isn't too terrible. This weird cold then warm weather isn't helping anyone here.


 o
RE: Seed Purge Pt 2

Heidi, so sorry to hear you're aflicted with a Flu virus! <:( Nasty stuff, that. Been there all too many times myself. Praying for your improved health! Wishing you the best meds/and-or herbals! Wish I could recommend something instantly effective. Suggestion: Contact Alana (Poisondartfrog).

I would comment more, but today hasn't been a particularly good day. In fact,...it totally sucked-scissors. - Later, y'all.
