RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

I'm new to this so I'm not sure what to do. Wish list would go something like this;

Tomatoes that don't mind a healthy shot of COLD several times while they are growing and setting fruit.

I hope this works, Santa hasn't seen fit to bother with me in over 40 years, LOL.

Thank you for letting me wish,
James

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Everytime I log onto my computer someone tells me I am number "gazillion" or something and wants me to click and claim my prize. Now I really am the right number. That is too funny.

I hope someone wasn't trying to holdout to be 100 because I hit it totally by accident. I followed a link from Square Foot Gardening and decided that I could fulfill a few wishes and maybe get some "good stuff" myself.

My yard really needs help so I am anxious, and now I get a double surprise. I have only gotton seeds one other time and they came all mixed in one envelope with about 20 flower names written on the outside. I thought when spring arrived I would just plant them all in a flat and see what I got. LOL Since I think some are perreniel (sp?), I may not find out for two years. LOL

I live in zone 7 in the NE corner of Oklahoma, but my climate is much different than most of Oklahoma. We still get the heat, but we have had over 60 inches of rainfall so far this year. I would say that we are more like Ozark gardening than we are Oklahoma gardening in many ways. I was reading the square foot gardening forum because I have been thinking about converting to mostly a raised bed vegetable garden because of all of the spring rainfall that makes it hard to get into the garden. In addition, I have steel rods in my back so I don't bend at the waist so bringing it up a little higher will help. I mostly work on my knees but as I get older that gets a little harder. Getting old ain't for sissies. This year I did a lot of containers and I liked that also, but in the middle of summer, I had to water any day that we didn't have rain.

Thanks so much for doing this, and I was excited about the seeds before..........now I am excited to be the winner of the prize. Thanks again. Carol

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

I was just wondering if there was a way to find out who had things coming to them posted that way we can see if we could cover the ones who only had like 1 or 2 planning on sending them that way we don't blast someone with say 20-30 packs of the seeds while someone else only got 1-2. I am not asking for who is sending to who or what just those that barely had anyone sending them to. I hope I made sense. Thanks

Have a great night everyone

I've looked over the lists so far, and I will be able to fill about 20-25 wishes with my humble seed stash. This swap is a real lifesaver for me; I'm not allowed to work right now due to a high risk pregnancy, and this gives me something to do. So, I've already received the gift of sanity from this swap...thank you all!

I, for one, will be more than happy to have more artwork from Jordan! The last one she sent us is still framed and on the boys' bedroom wall from the seed trade they did in the spring :) They will be really excited to get another one, and a card this time, that they can display!

This is so much fun. My dining room table is filled with seed packages, homemade seed envelopes and christmas cards. I just hope I can clear this off before dinnertime.

agirlsgirl, I think everyone will agree with me, homemade cards are always welcome. - kim

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Kim, I would LOVE a card from Jordan, as I cant teach anymore, and really miss getting all the great artwork ! If it is ok with you, I will send Jordan her OWN card..no Grandmas name on it..ok ? LOL

Thanks to everyone for making this swap so much fun !! I am working on the address list, and will be sending out sometime on the 25th . I have been sick the last two days, but still doing my best to keep up with this swap.

Thanks to each and everyone of you..whether you can send 1 or 10 cards...each one is special...and I am thankful that so many of you wanted to spread the holiday cheer !!

HI Everyone!!

Red flowers or red foliage plants
frangrant plants or flowers
tropical looking plants

It's great to see so many people getting in the spirit of giving, I can't think of a better gift than the gift of beauty for our home in the form of a humble seed. I hope everyone is doing well! Best wishes for all of you and your family!!

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

I'm new at this; I haven't even made my list in garden web; can I still participate in Secret Santa? I want to make sure all the seeds I have will grow before I offer. However, I do have some I know will. Let me know. Thanks!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Cathy - Kym has encouraged everyone to list their "Wish List" anyway. I am just now becoming a seed saver so I don't have a lot to share, but I did find that could fill a wish for four people, so I have those ready to go.

In some cases I am sending very few seeds, but some were seeds I bought this year and didn't get to try, so I am just sharing the package. There are lots of veggies that I would be happy to get one or two seeds for so I could plant them, try them, and save myself enough seeds for the following year.

I didn't think about veggies when I was making my list but I should have added Longhorn Okra because I would be happy with any amount so I could try it.

I really got lucky because I was number 100 to sign up. It makes me feel a little guilty because I am the "big" winner and I don't have a lot to share. I am a pretty good veggie gardener, but I am flower challenged. I hope I will do better with them this year.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

This swap is for ANYONE to post a WISH LIST...so Cathy..come up with 20 type of seeds you would like..and post before the 24th !! This is all about sharing, and enjoying the spirit of the holidays...Newbies are more then welcome to post a wish list...

and...if you feel "quilty", which you shouldnt...we all started out with nothing...you could pick someone to just send a nice card to.

This swap isnt about what we "get", it is about sharing in the "spirit" of the holidays !! and making friends, and sharing some holiday CHEER !!!!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Oh no! When I said it sounded like a privilege to receive one of Jordan's cards did I say it wrong? I meant it would be an honor to have her artwork arrive! I didn't mean to sound like I wouldn't love something like that and if it did I am extremely sorry! Jordan is one of us, just in a smaller body, and adored by many here,including myself! Again Kim (plantoneonme) if I offended you I am sorry,it was not my intention.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Angie...I just think Misskimmie thought it was YOU asking if it was ok..since she read the quote you posted...I didnt take it as you offended anyone...


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

OK...whew! I really would not want anyone to think I was a homemade card hater! Sorry if I misunderstood,I just wouldn't want anyone to think I would reject such a wonderful gift from such a great kid! :)


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

I know you love kids...and you have such an adorable little boy..I could just steal him...LOL

I am looking forward to the cards from Jordan..and Now I just thought...hm...I might not get one...LOL

Can I just get a card ??


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

LOL...I thought the same thing about the card Kym!


Oh yes, I do love the little ones,I just love their,sometimes, brutal honesty and ways! Heres a little tale of that brutal honesty,I had a pimple,well we were watching TV and one of those "zit" cream commercials came on,Devin looks at me and says "Hey Mom,maybe you could get some of that." I played along and said "Now why would I need that?" he said " Because of that big pimple you have,you could use that stuff and it will just go away...just like that!" and he snapped his fingers,which he has been doing at every opportunity since he learned how...lol.. I didn't think the pimple was all that noticeable,but I guess it was. He said something similar to my MIL about wrinkle cream,thank goodness she is like me and finds the humor in it,I just worry about strangers,I just hope he doesn't say something like that to someone at the store...oh I would be horrified!


By the way,he says Hi! I told him you would like to steal him and he said "Ok!"...lol..


Boy Kym, this really turned into an awesome swap! I must say there are some awesome people that joined in,it feels great to be amongst such great people! :)

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Kids do say the craziest things, don't they. I went to grade school in a small town in southern Oklahoma. Chuck Norris's grandparents lived there, and for a very short time, his parents also lived there. The town wanted to capitalize on the fact that it was once "the hometown of Chuck Norris" so they tried to start a museum. It was a poor excuse, but I didn't know that at the time, so I took my youngest son to see it. We were looking at a yearbook and this lady starting talking about when he went to school there. I told her that I had gone to school at the same time.

She said, "Honey, I don't think so. He's a lot older than you." Well..............I explained he was a little older but we were there at the same time and only a couple of years apart.

She said, "You sure don't look that old."

As we left, I am smiling from ear to ear, because I was thinking "old Chuck" looked pretty good to me, and she thought I was younger. WOW

My son said, "Mom, you know what she said about you not looking as old as Chuck Norris".

Still laughing a little, I said, "Yes".

He said, "You really do".

lol That sure was funny. This has been going along very well. Lots of people signed up and the lists are great! I seen a couple that I had, but unfortunately only had a pinch of those seeds I bought earlier this year. :( So peoples exchange list comes in handy to see what else they were looking for that I might have. :)

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Wow Kym! This is AMAZING! And you are doing an AMAZING job at it!
It is so nice to see the newbies and the lurkers joining in, what a fun way to get them started!

It would be nice to know the most amount of seeds sent in a RR and see if we can break the record!

I'm going to start getting some envies ready! I haven't even started yet YIKES!

Vic


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

It really is amazing how big this is. I, too, would like to know if we're hitting records of members participating and seeds sent. WoW! And, DOUBLE WoW on how many cards/envies are being sent so far! I am sure by the time more of us have a chance to get everything packaged and then to tell you, it's really gonna rock!

I don't want to run out of something for someone I promised to send to, so I'm not reporting until I have it ready to go out that I'm sending to that person.

I, too, may not send normal quantities of each item because of the number of requests of the items I have, so I'm trying to spread around the holiday spirit as much as possible. I know I will enjoy getting some of anything on my list and figured others would as well.

Kym, you are doing a fantastic job. This is becoming more and more fun every day. It's going to be totally awesome when December is here and people start reporting with holiday joy that they received cards and such in the mail. What fun!!! Thanks for your hard work on this. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Blessings,
Angela

one more reason to behave all year

Ever have one of those moments
when you KNOW you shouldn't
do something, but just gotta?

Well, I'm having one of those
moments right now.

I went looking for a picture of Santa
to share with everyone,
something nice,
something good.

BUT, those of you who know me
know that I have a much
better time
MIS-BEHAVING than
being good. So,
having said all that, I humbly
present a cartoon of what
Santa might really do to someone
who hasn't exactly been
good all year long.

Not that there is anyone
like that HERE,
you understand.

hehehe

Or, should I say, hohoho???

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

mpmom, that is not such a dumb question. I signed all of my cards, along with my non-gardening ones, without thinking about it.
I sure hope that's okay-it could get pretty ugly if I have to open 'em all up and mark it out. Sheesh.
Kym, I am working on a final update and will send it out a bit later.

Any sort of dwarf veggie plants, particularly non-vining, bush beans (I love garden fresh beans! Last Summer I bought some beans that said they were bush, but they vined all over the place!! The slugs got a feast I envied!)
Dwarf Strawberries

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

OK I was hesitant to join, but heck I can't miss out on all the fun. My wish list is short and hopefully simple.

would really really really love some giant headed red cockscomb, my 15 yo saw some at the county fair and wants to grow some and I would love to put these in her stocking.

For me would you believe I don't have any plain ole purple coneflowers?

so my list is:
Cockscomb....really giant read
Purple coneflowers
any daisy or daisy like flower
anything that smells good

Question??? is there a way to search these 2 threads by the type of seeds I have? To make it easier than going trough all the list and finding someone that matches my seeds? I hope that makes sense.

Mary


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Mary, I hope Sue might have a better answer..but I dont think so...I have been going thru the lists, one post at a time.

Thanks to you ALL that have just joined...so Happy to Have you !! PLEASE make sure you email me your mailing address, with screen name...ASAP.

I hope you all have been "NICE" this season....cause there sure are some very busy "elves" working hard at making everyone happy !!!

HO HO HO ! A few more hours left...come on...you know you want to join !!! ( YES...YOU !)

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Hi!
I know that i already have a list of twenty but i just want to add one more:

21: Carnivorous Plants

I recently got involved in them and want to expand my collection any carnivoures are welcome.

Kamil


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

Mary, if you have something specific to search like "cosmos" or "morning glory" type those words into your search function. This is usually CTRL-F (both keys hit at the same time). Then just keep clicking "find next" and it shold take you to every instance where that word(s) occurs on the page. You can write down the person's GW name and continue on. This might be a quick way to search for the people who have a few specific types. Hope that helps.

RE: UPDATE: Secret Santa Seed Swap (100 and still going)

This is gonna be fun! I'm glad to see everyone having fun in this! I hope grovespirit gets better. Yesterday morning, Nov 24th after 2am I leaned down to pick something up beside PC and got sharp pain in head..which I had this slight pain before for few day. I got up and fell in the living room. Heart was racing. Ambulance called. Went in for blood & urine test, CT, EKG.. thankfully nothing was found to be wrong, but the problem persist. 18 hrs later heart thrust twice and raced for over a min. Now it's been over another 18 hrs. I feel better but headache in that spot still there a bit. I'm suppose to get more tests done. I think the strong pain is only the hearts reaction to it! I hope that anyone that is ill in any way gets better soon. It sucks to have any kind of illness any kind of complications whatsoever. Lets hope everyone stays safe and healthy this year and the years to come.

Happy Holidays everyone, be well!

-David
