2) You have plenty of time to gather seeds and send them in, they are not due in until January 8. If you still need a little more time, this is fine.
3) Please send a return mailing label and enough postage to return your new fresh seeds back to you� or if you want to just insert a new envelope with postage this is fine.

@alwaysgarden....thanks so much...silly me!


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

I am new to these swaps, I missed that godsgarden9 had put the mailing address above so I asked her to email me her address. I got an email from someone else saying to send my seeds to them. It's not the same address or GW username as posted above. It doesn't seem correct to me. I have emailed part of the email to godsgarden9 but haven't heard anything back from her yet. This doesn't seem right does it? Has this ever happened to anyone else? It's fine if it's someone helping her but I don't have a lot of seeds to spare and if I lost my set I am sending to this swap I wouldn't be able to gather enough to resend.


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

I missed the address on top also. Hopefully he will get back to you
chefconnie. Sounds like someone is trying to scam you out of your
seeds.

RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

Willy, my seeds were mailed today!
DC # 0312 1430 0001 9471 3591
I sent a $1 so you could send seeds back to me with a DC also!
I had mailed a package to another trade last week & the mail person said it would be the same for Priority as First Class so I sent enough stamps for whatever you need! The envelope for this swap (was about the same as last week) cost less than $3 to mail!!! CRAZY!!!
Since you backed up the "send to you" date...what is your approximate projected return date??? Just curious??? ;o)
Thanks again for hosting!!!

 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

lysa39, you can post on the regular seed exchange that you are a newbie. You still need to have some seeds to trade. You can buy a few packs of unusual seeds and hopefully get some trades. When I was a newbie on there several people sent me free seeds no trade, just because I was new! Sorry to hear you had a trade go bad.


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

@ lysa39.. you can try the Newbie Seed Project on the Seed Exchange. She may still have packets available, worth a try.


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

Yes, most of the packages should be in the mail tommorrow, tan you for your participation.. have a wonderful growing Season... Willy your host.

 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

I got a bubble envelope today with no return address. I don't know if it was from here or not. I was very disappointed. Some envelopes only contained about 3-5 seeds. Certainly not worth what all I sent!


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

@Zackey, that is weird, I felt all of the packages I recieved were very generous.

RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

I receive the envelope of seeds today. But im very puzzled why some of my seeds are in there from last year's fresh seed swap? 5 packs are from me & I didn't put them in this year's swap....

 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

80% of the seeds I got won't grow in my zone. They are for up north. I realize that maybe most of the traders are from colder zones than me, but it didn't make it a fun trade for me. I went and felt all of the seed packs again and 4 had what I would call the right amount for the trade.


 o
RE: NEW: 2013 Everything Goes New Years Fresh Seed Swap

First I want to say, Thanks Willie for doing another great swap.
Then, to Christine, it is very possible that some seeds you sent to other swaps were "traded back in" by gardeners who could not use them. Last spring I gave away all my left over seeds. There is nothing to stop the recepients from trading off ones they did not want.
If all seeds had the senders name on them that helps. Very few of what I got in the mail today had member names on them. Some swaps I have gotten seeds that I could not find online but I was able to contact the traders and get some advice. That's nice!
Zachy, I hear you and sympathise BUT the host can only send back from among the seeds that were sent in. If folks are sending in old seeds and not putting their names on them then that is what is available. Also, the majority of members are , as you guessed from zone 8 and north from there.If you are looking for tropicals, try some of the regional forums. They may be a better fit.
It's discouraging but the level of swaps on this site has gone down over the last few years. I can't see what a host can do to change that. Anyone have any ideas?
Again, I want to thank Willie for years of hard work on doing some of the best swaps I have participated in.
