Add me to the list. Thanks, Don


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Fry Momma, depends on the size. Teeny seeds, I think a quarter teaspoon is good. Medium/large seeds that you can easily count, at least 10-12. But it also depends on how rare/valuable/desirable they are. I have received as few as 2 or 3 seeds and was grateful because I was not expecting to receive them in a trade.

 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

This was so much fun last year. Please put me in. It really helped me to add variety to my garden!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Last year was the first time I missed this swap. (I had a health problem and was very busy) This year I want to join in but can't send much. My seed stash was accidentally thrown away. I am looking for seeds I can buy or some I might have placed somewhere else.

Can I still participate if I have bought seeds? I have very little collected seeds right now.

it is such a wonderful swap and I missed it so much last year.

Have a great time everyone!!
Karen

** I sent an email to Dorothy, needing a screen name. If I have missed you, PLEASE kindly send me an email...Santa and her assistant DO make mistakes !

***Everyone should already be checking lists, and checking them twice...DO NOT WAIT !! pack up your seeds and cards, and place a screen name on your envelopes...that way when you get the address list, you can just address them and WAIT for your day to mail.

++++Reading all the excitement, surely brings a smile to MY face each time I read a comment or email...you all have NO idea how much JOY this swap brings to me each year !!

** I believe I have answered all questions..if not feel free to send me an email **

Sooo, What is everyone doing for Thanksgiving ? Any special traditions ??


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Thank you, Kym! So glad you are feeling better. Honestly... Sweet Potato Pie is my most favorite Thanksgiving tradition. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

lol I fished all over for an invitation to someone else's house for Thanksgiving, but no luck this year. My sons and their families are traveling out of state, so I'll cook turkey and the trimmings for the two of us and my mother, who lives close by. it would not be Thanksgiving without turkey, corn bread stuffing, and at least pumpkin and pecan pies. Side dishes can vary, but probably sweet potatoes, green beans, and cranberry salad. The best part is having leftovers for the rest of the week-end!

This was my first year gardening and I must say I truly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to spring to do it all over again!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Not that you would, but please don't count me out on this. It's just this stinkin' "shingles" affliction that's been slowing me down. I intend to complete my wish list and post it tonight, if yet allowed to do so, and send in my list regarding who I'll be sending to. My doctor has informed me mine is the worst case of shingles he's ever seen,...and although it still hurts on the left side of my anymore semi-hideous face, I've still managed to design this year's Christmas cards and have printed out a number of same, ready to receive a few additional sparkly embellishments prior to being ready to send. - For us, no Secret Santa Seed Swap = no real Christmas at all. While our 29 yr. old autistic son, I assure you, will receive Christmas presents, however, due to his **extreme** unrealistic expectations, he will not be informed the gifts are actually Christmas presents. Anything else and he will rant-n-rave-n-cry-n-cry for days,...and that's the *best* of it. Look,...I'm tired and in pain again, so I'll post this now. God bless you all,...and once more, please don't count me out! Still hangin' in!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

cryptid, again I am so sorry you are having so many issues.
Miss Kym, I know you haven't been feeling well.
I hope you are really doing better now. I haven't sent you any info yet because WELL, you know, I'm slack girl I sorry...DO NOT SEND the elf Miss K after me!

I will hoot at you later online :)
:) Aqua


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

I have it easy for Thanksgiving. I will be making two
pumpkin pies, and two leche flan's to take to my sister's
house. I'm making 2 leche flans today to take to work
tomorrow. Everybody loves it.

I have been working on my cards little by little, so I don't
have to do it all at once. I've been waiting to e-mail my
send to list, once everybody has posted their wish list.


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Please count me in-I really enjoyed this swap last year.

 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Just want to say Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow to you all. Sorry to hear about cryptid and Kym not feeling well. Feel well soon. Staying home and cooking for my husband , son and mom. My other 2 kids are adults now and they have other plans which means we will be eating turkey for days!! Anyone have some good recipes for left overs???


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I've got a great recipe for any leftover sweet potatoes, candied yams or winter squash, socalgardengal!

Panhandle_Seed_Swap's Sweet Potato Pie:

This recipe fills 3 regular Pet-Ritz frozen pie crusts (or 2 Pet-Ritz Deep Dish).

2 1/2 cups cooked & mashed sweet potatoes
1 cube unsalted butter (softened)
1/2 cup half & half
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar (use less if using candied yams)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (I usually use a bit extra)
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. salt

At this point, blend all the above ingredients until smooth, then taste it to see if the spices and sugars are to your liking.

Add 3 eggs and beat just until it's smooth and fluffy.

Tent filled pie shells with foil and make a 3" hole in the top to vent. I cook them for about an hour at 350 degrees.

Enjoy!

RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I opted out of shopping on Black Friday - instead I've been stuffing bubble envies. Waiting for a couple more seed orders to come in but I'm excited about the how many wishes I could fill! I love Secret Santa!!!
Have a great weekend!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

I finally got my list done and posted and messaged Kym about who I'd be sending to. Can't believe I almost forgot about this swap. I really enjoyed it for the first time last year.


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Leftover turkey can be turned into Turkey Salad, BBQ or you can make an awesome soup.
The soup is good if you take the bones and simmer them for a couple hours then remove the bones, add in some carrots and turkey and cook till the carrots are almost done then add in some wide noodles.
But if you didn't keep the bones to make some broth with you can use chicken broth and just cook it as above.
You can add peas too if you like. It is a very delicious soup.
BBQ turkey is good too, shred some and make a sauce or use your favorite bottled sauce and eat on buns.....(had this myself for Friday evenings meal)


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Never mentioned it here before that I can remember, but I totally feel it incumbent upon me to inform everyone that I've finally posted my wish list. Please review it y'all! :)


 o

Hope you are feeling better.

RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Hi everyone , I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Cryptid and Kym, I hope you are both feeling better!

I am sitting in my dining room , enjoying the sun streaming in the window, got my seed stash out and checking everyones' lists ... this is going to be so much fun, I just love this swap ! giving and receiving Christmas cards with wonderful seeds inside is this gardener's idea of the perfect way to add extra joy to the holiday season ;-)

Hiii I sent an email to ya with my mailing list. Just want to make sure you received it. Thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Hi everyone,

the reason I asked for you to contact me by email, was it would be easier to reply with the address list that way...I believe I have just sent to everyone I missed. I had a real problem with the new Yahoo email..I will be changing email for the next swap !!

I have lots of lists to go thru...it will take me some time, and then I will post a list of whom I am in need of a list from.

Thanks to everyone for following the rules, and getting the info in to me....
*******************************************************************
SPECIAL ELVES ....anyone want to mail an extra card or two ? If so let me know by email and I will get the list passed around after the 8th.

a special elf looks at the list of those receiving the least cards, and sends them an extra if possible.

*******************************************************************

I hope everyone now has the email with address and mailing dates...if not send me an email please !

Let the mailboxing fun begin...and remember not to mail early :)

RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

I love you Kym :)
Thought you might need that SMOOCHES!!!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

sent you my list, but have not received any email with addresses and dates to mail out cards - would love to be an elf and send a couple more to any not expected to receive many cards

ps - I have been emailing you through GW with no response - could that be part of the yahoo problem?

Primrose, I sent you an email yesterday and a follow up one this morning...please let me know if you didn't get them.


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Flwrs - no I have not gotten any emails from you. Yesterday, I put your yahoo email into my email's address book so it would recognize any emails coming from you, but I can see no luck.

I will be emailing a suggestion to you via GW right now.


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Primrose, could you please try emailing me directly..I think the problem is all your emails come thru GW. It's my screen name at yahoo .


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Flwrs4ever, I tried to email you directly, instead of through gw, but my computer won't let me do it. I strongly suspect I'm having issues with IE and my email through it, because I can only email via earthlink through my IE browser.


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

I'm gonna email you directly :) I hate hassles like these! I think its GW too cuz I even subscribe to get replies from this thread and a few others and I never receive some or it gets delayed.

Kym, Sorry but I only sent you my list of who I am mailing seeds to this morning and I haven't received the list of address either. I have been having computer problems since Windows 8 is new to me on my new computer. Thanks and I hope there isn't a problem.

Emailed the list of who I will be sending to. Thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Hi everyone !

Santa just spent about four hours counting ...and going thru emails. I have two more lists to record, after a short needed break :)

Tomorrow I will post a list of who I am still in need of a list from...you have till Dec 8 th at 10 pm to send me your mailing lists.

* yes! you can mail more if you so choose??just please let me know your add-ons !
* when mailing your lists, just send screen names and remember to let me know YOUR screen name.

Please note : if you have seeds for loveless, I have her address and will add it to list tomorrow ! (I can't make changes without laptop and it's at college with my assistant K )

Thanks to each of you for being so generous ! Before the mailing begins..I just want to take a minute and explain...this swap was set up in the spirit of GIVING ...everyone will receive different amounts of cards. I do my very best with lots of help..to make everyone happy. I use five cards as the minimum..but last year most people received ten or more. The card mailing is staggered, so to keep the fun of mail boxing last the whole month....so PLEASE don't get upset if others are getting before you ! I also usually give those sending a large list the later send dates if possible, so they have plenty of time.

I hope everyone is having fun with the seeds and cards ! Anyone up for a game ?


 o
RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Hi - Sorry, I sent my list last night. I didn't realize we were supposed to post here to let you know.

Wow, just got my first Christmas card this year.
Perfect day for it, as we're iced in today with the winter storm.
Hope everyone in storm's way is safe.

Micyrey (Michelle) sent a beautiful embossed red card with

They sound lovely.
Thank you for sharing, Michelle.
Hello & Merry Christmas to everyone.

Only in the low 50's , low 40's at night. I was addressing my envies today and saw where you all live and can't imagine living through the weather you all have to endure. Be safe and warm!

I got my first card today from Panhandle Seed Swap! Very excited to find Arkansas Traveler heirloom tomato seeds inside a very cute card. Last year I grew 2 new varieties of heirloom tomatoes thanks to this swap. A big thank you to you, Sheri! I'll be growing Arkansas Traveler in 2014 :)

RE: NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)

Well folks I am home after a weekend in the Temple hospital. God blessed me with some great doctors and nurses . What I was transferred to Temple for is they thought there was a problem with my aorta lining being separated in one spot and Harker Hights could not handle such issues . But much to the doctors relief as well as mine this was not the case . The whole problem revolved around an alergic reaction which developed over time to my prescription to lisinopril which is a blood presure med. so be warned if you are prescribed this med you may after time develop an allergic reaction which involves swelling in the extremities which is inflamed and at times it itches . also can lower your blood pressure to near dangerous low levels. so be on guard if you your loved ones or your friends take this drug it can be dangerous.Some other good news I forgot to mention. Since I last saw my Doctor in Bryan earlier this year my heart function is up 9% and I have lost 15 pounds . A great victory thanks to the help and good care of my doctors and nurses And the good Lord looking after me. This is one reason I have not been very active on the forum this year. hope to change that dramatically. I have missed everyone. Merry Christmas.

Kevin
