OK....

If you are a Garden Web Newbie (within the past month or so) and have virtually NO seeds to trade with, post here and announce yourself as a newbie. Send me an e-mail with a "wish list" so that I can gather all of you together and send you my address.
You might even post some wishes here, so we might be able to focus on some specifics.
I will do my best to accomodate wish lists....but many might be seeds you can use for trading....just list them as received from a trade.

Veterans....who has lots of seeds left over??? All kinds...you know who you are!! Let's get into the Christmas spirit and share what we have to give these eager young Newbies a place to call "home". :o)
Post here that you will participate and then E-mail me for my addy!
Any types of seeds are wanted, for as we all know, that is how we got started!

Deadline for posting here is December 15th and the Deadline for receiving all envelopes (whether contributions from vets or SASBE's from the newbies) will be December 31st. This will leave some time for winter sowing, if they want to do that.
I will e-mail the newbies individually when your seeds are on their way!

Have I left anything out?? If so, please tell me, as this will be my first attempt at a Round Robin (and of a different kind)!!!

Let's have fun and give, give, give!!! :o)

I'd be happy to join in the fun!


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I still have seeds left over that would be good for a newbie such as cleome, dill, cilantro, columbine. I can also throw in some more difficult things. I have some trades from a swap that I will not use. Can I put them in also? I will be glad to share, I hate to let them go to waste. My husband would be happy with my cleaning up the little packets all over the floor.

Send me your address..

Thanks for organizing this..

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

And like Ellen said, we all hate to see the seeds go to waste if someone needs them!


 o
Should mention a note about postage...

Newbies,
I am making an assumption that the postage will not be more than 60 cents for each of your SASBE's, but if it happens to go over that, I will cover it.....

HO, HO, HO!!

Kat: I would love to join in your wonderful 'holiday spirit' round robin. I have lots of seed I too do not want to go to waste. Several years ago I had numerous generous gardeners here share with me and I love it when I can "Pay It Forward", (great movie by the way). Thanks for taking the time and energy to organize this. We all will be blessed.

I am going to make a list and check it twice for your wishes!! :o)

It would also be nice if you could bookmark the URL for this post and when you do receive your seeds, you could let all of us know and thank everyone who contributed to this event.....

On with the giving!!!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I'm new to Seed Exchanging and Winter Sowing and have been hanging out here for two weeks trying to soak up as much as I can. I'm in Zone 8b (greater Seattle area) and just moved to a new, larger yard earlier this year. I have started to landscape, pretty much from scratch. We have several rock walls, with good southern and eastern exposure, so hardy flowering vines, like Passiflora incarnata, would be welcome. My wife likes showy flowers and hostas, and we've made some progress in preparing beds and partially planting them. In addition, my neighbor has a big chunk of sunny, vacant lot, and she's agreed to let me use as large a space as I can handle for a community veggie garden, so I'm interested in any heirloom vegetable seeds, particularly tomatoes. Lastly, I'm a bamboo nut, and would welcome getting any kind of real bamboo seeds (including tropical species that I would grow indoors). So Santa, that's my list...


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I have lots of seeds to share and love playing Santa.

Hi, WebKat--

Well, I've already adopted a newbie (sorta) in NC, and I've also contributed (and will BE contributing in the future) to garden_witch's seed bank, but I still have plenty of seeds and would be happy to send some along to you...

Best regards,
Cheryl

This is my first year for wsing, I have nothing to trade. Have received seeds already from the very generous gwers, but, can you ever have enough? I need things for shade as well as sun. Can't wait to start. But how do you stand the wait after you have put your milk cartons out - does spring take even longer to get here when you ws?

I live in Middletown OHio, between Dayton and Cincinnati.


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Cheryl (the_loam_ranger) just suggested a great idea!

If all of the Newbies can get their wish lists together, I will compile them into one long list and then e-mail these lists to the veterans. I will have the newbie names with the lists, so if the veterans want to specify who they go to, they can.

This will give them something to use when deciding some specific items to contribute.

Sooooo.....Newbies, if you haven't already, be sure to post your wish list!

It has only been one day and we already have 6 newbie recipients and 10 contributers (including me)!!

Looks like I am going to have my work cut out for me!! :o)


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Email me your address. I have a few seeds left.

Nice of you to do this!

Trudi


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I can adopt too. What fun!


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I can send out a newbie pack. Just tell me what to do! Glad you are organizing this. Thanks.


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I am a newbie(just two weeks)I love this web site. I have already learned so much. Please include me. Thanks for the generous offer.


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I am a newbie, but I don't really need any seeds, because the Cottage Garden forum hooked me up very generously during our seed swap. HOWEVER, I would like to let Pete know that if he wants some catalpa seeds or KY Coffee tree seeds, I'd be happy to send some, either through the newbie swap, or individually.

Broodyjen


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

What a wonderful idea and so nice of you. I would love to join in but since I just finished a SASBE offer I don't have much variety left. I do have lots of joe pye weed, Echinaceas and cleome left.

I would love to adopt DanaOH because I graduated from Middletown High School in 1952.
Hard to believe 53 yrs ago huh?

Please email me your address and I'll get the seeds that I have out to you right away.

Raney


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

My wish list is as follows:
Datura
Japanese mg
Cleome
Cosmo
Chrysanthemum leucanthemum
rudibeckia
Hollyhocks
daylillies
I would appreciate any thing I receive. Thanks for the opportunity.


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Veterans:

If you would like to designate a portion of your seeds to a specific Newbie (as Raney10 wants to do), please just include a note with your seeds and separate those from the rest of what you send.

I am hoping that we are going to have enough to send many, many packs (and a nice assortment) to each newbie....looks like we are well on our way!!


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I have lots of left over seeds. Collecting seeds in the fall is addicting. I go way overboard.

I still have your address from our trade last month so I will put together a package.

Off the top of my head, some choices would be:

I'll send some extras and help out. Lord knows I don't need all these seeds!! I still got your addy, I'll get them in the mail today or tomorrow. Have a great day gal.

 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I can contribute seeds to the newbies. Let me know where to send the seeds and when to send them! What a wonderful Christmas idea!


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I heard my name =)

I have a little something for everyone, just let me know where to send!

I am so glad to see another "trade" like this. A little over a year ago (maybe it was two?) I hosted an 'adopt-a-newbie' swap. I had something like 50 or so participants if memory serves (it seldom does, so it may have been more!) I have to say, Kat, your method is so much simpler. I was matching pple up instead of pooling the trade, a much smarter (more smart?) idea!

Any Bee Balm
Coreopsis
Gooseneck Loosestrife
Any Campanula
Snakeweed
Lambs ear
Any salvia

Thank you so much. And Kathy, thank you for thinking of this and organizing it all.

 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I'm new! Help me! :)
I have one bed that is in full sun right next to the sidewalk and gets brutal treatment(passing kids, super sandy soil, no protection from wind) , and one pampered, wind sheltered bed right next to the house that gets some partial shade and holds on to water better. I live in Wyoming, so it gets very very dry- but i can mitigate that in the shade bed.

Right now i have california poppies, lambs ear, gaura, various sedums, one type of purple penstemon, columbines, sea campion, snapdragons and cosmos. Anything else would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your generosity!

Keira


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I'd love to help! I was wondering how I'd get rid of all my extra seeds. There really is no way to plant everything you collect!
Martha


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I'm new at this. I am excited about trying wintersowing this year. My previous attempts at growing plants from seeds indoors have failed miserably. I hope this method will have some success. I live on the north side of a hill, surrounded with tall pine trees, so I don't get a whole lot of sunshine here.

This is my wish list. If you can provide any of these seeds, that would be wonderful.
Baby-blue-eyes Nemophila Menziesii
Browallia, Brush violet
Lobelia, Edging
Wax Begonia
Alkanet
Barrenwort
Bugbane
Canadian Wild Ginger
Foam Flower (Tiarella cordifolia)
Grapeleaf Anemone
Labrador Violet
Sweet Alyssum
Torenia Wishbone flower
Falst Blue indigo
Lady's mantle
Leopard's Bane
Wild Columbine
Yellow Foxglove
Cupid's Heart
Delphinium
Allwood Pinks
Catmint
Hollyhock
Morning Glory

Thank you.

Whew!!!

Oh, boy, are the reindeer going to be tuckered!!!

Wow! What spirit!!

So far, the count is 12 newbies and approximately 25 generous veterans!!

 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I would be more than happy to send some seeds to help out some newbies as well! The great folks here at gw helped me so much a couple of years ago when I was brand new, and I would love the chance to do the same for another newbie.

I have lots of veggie/herb seeds WebKat5, and I would really like to adopt Plantas and help her get her new veggie garden started. So I will separate some edibles just for her.

Just send me an addy and I will get these right out!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Please send me your address.


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I too have seeds to share - what a 'community' we make. The newbies will be grinning in their own gardens during the new year and I will think of all our seeds sprouting under a warm blue sky and giving them such joy. Happy Holidays - and thanks WebKat5 for your generous spirit.


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi, I just joined GW and would love to be adopted. My husband just lost his job of many years and I was worried that we could not plant our new vegetable garden in the spring. We eat just about anything and I have a passion for preserving heirloom varieties of flowers and vegetables. I am willing to pass on any excess seeds to someone else who can use them.

Thanks so much for your generosity.
Joy


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

WebKat,
I love your idea of posting newbie's wishes all together. I printed off the first set (Fri., 12/7). Keep them coming. I'd like to try to match newbies to my seeds and put them in individual plastic bags so you have less to sort. I'm sure other vets have the same idea. It still will be a big job for you, and I so appreciate your doing this. I get rid of seeds I can't use and others get some of their wishes (just like you all have helped me over the last year).


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I've got lots of seeds I'd be happy to contribute!


 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I'm a newbie and I'd love to join in!

my wish list:
bee balm (any)
russian sage
dill
cosmos - esp orange
siberian wallflower (orange)
pear tomatoes (red or yellow)

I'm also looking for new varieties of winter squash to try.
I've tried butternut, acorn and spaghetti squash and would like to try others.

any other herbs/veggies that anyone would be willing to share.

thanks!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi WebKat,
I will send you a bubble envelope of many varieties of seeds for the newbies and you can decide who gets what. You will have your hands full with all the sorting and deciding. The mail carrier will wonder what you are up to. This is a nice Christmas present to welcome the newbies. Thanks for being so generous. Blessings to you.

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I just discovered the forum in September, so I'm a newbie. I don't need any more seeds, thanks to the generosity of folks on the forum. But, I have been collecting seeds from my yard and and from here and there. Please note that my seeds are NOT from winter sown plants and they are open pollinated. I'd be happy to share:
• datura (moonflower, white, lemony scent)
• Rose of Sharon (white blossom with pale lilac-pink accents)
• crape myrtle (burgundy, pink, white)
• plain green hosta
• mystery shrub -- covered with clusters of red berries -- I think it's deciduous holly or crabapple but don't know for sure
• wild dogwood

On some seeds (hosta, datura, crape myrtle I have a lot of seeds. On others such as dogwood, I have only a few. So, depending on the seed, I won't be able to always follow the rule of 24 seeds or 1/4 teaspoonful. But, what I have are yours to distribute to other newbies. Just let me know where to send them.

Thanks,
Barbara in Virginia

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I am simply in awe of the turnout we have generated!

I have to say, it appears as though GardenWebbers are some of the most generous people on the planet!!

We still have room for some additional newbies and have 10 days remaining until the deadline.

3 Cheers for the Veterans!!!!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi, WebKat. This is a wonderful thing you are doing! I am a neebie to GW. I have many seeds but only in very small quantities so I have been unable to trade. I have a very large family so I never have enough money to buy many different varieties. We also moved this year before my garden went into seed. My wishlist:
Lavenders- any
Heirloom veggies, esp. tomatoes
Poppies- Breadseed and pink ones
Basil- African Blue and Red Rubin
Columbine
Wisteria
Mint- Chocolate, Orange, Pineapple, Lavender, etc...
Pineapple Sage
Thyme- Lemon
Toadflax
Sweet Pea- heirloom
Campanula
Nicotiana
Mignonette
Datura
Foxglove
Hollyhock- single heirloom
Cup & Saucer Vine
But I will greatly appreciate and be happy with anything!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi. A Newbie here that would love to get even a small amount of any of the following:

Gentiana septemfida--Alpine Summer Gentian
Ipomoea quamoclit--Cypress Vine
Kitaibelia vitifolia--Cedar Cup
Malva sylvestris Zebrina--Striped Malva
Nemophila menziesii--Penny Black
Perilla frutescens nankinensis--Aka Shiso
Trollius europaeus--Globeflower
Viola x williamsii--Red Flame Angel Viola
Ixiolirion tartaricum—Tartar Lily
Heuchera 'Helen Dillon'—Coral Bells
Heuchera 'Vesuvius'—Coral Bells

Ohh, and any kinds of ornamental kale. These are so pretty.

I hope I got the names right, as most of these were found on seed websites that I had not yet placed orders on...my DH might have a fit if I buy too many seeds at once, LOL. But really, I would enjoy anything that might do well in my zone and climate (dry, hot, dry, hot, dry, dry, dry). The less I have to water the better.

TIA, Sam

Oops!

Oops! I wasn't paying attention and I put neebie instead of newbie. LOL

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Well, after conversing with my P.O., they are opting to hold all of the packages addressed to me. This will be much better for my mailbox and the seeds!! We are having some pretty extreme cold here (single digits) and it wouldn't take much for the seeds to freeze. Sooooo......yea!!

We still have room for more Newbies and other Veterans who would like to purge those extras!!

This is awesome!!! Can't wait to beging "filling the stockings"!

Well, I am officially snowed in today!!!

Sooooo....I thought I would use some of my free time today to set up some individual folders (with wish list attached) for each newbie and then start sorting the seeds that have already arrived.

Wow! I still can't believe how wonderful and generous all of the veteran seed traders are!! My chin is on the floor!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi! A new garden friend I made (DirtySC8) :) directed me to here! I currently have been making some seed trades the last few months but have never attempted to grow any yet...DirtySC8 has shown me some wonderful advice for winter-sowing and I am very interested in doing this. This will be my first for any seeds. I would love very much to be included in receiving any seeds that would be good to winter-sow for my very cold zone 5 area. Just a few different varieties would be nice since I do not have alot of yard space to use. Thanks so much!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi All,
I have been lurking forever in the orchid section but am really new to seeds. I just bought a house with a big yard and would love to fill it to the brim with flowers and herbs! I have sunny, semi-shady, and shady spots to put seeds in, I love fragrant flowers and vines (no morning glories or ivies please! They grow like weeds in my soil and choke out everything else!) I am so excited about this round robin as it would have cost me hundreds to buy seeds to plant in my barren garden! Thank you so much to everyone who gave seeds, I hope to reciprocate once I have seeds collected! Here are some plants I absolutely love although anything is welcome at this point in time:
Daturas
Marigolds
Poppies
Lilies
Irises (don't quite know if these come in seeds)
Herbs of any kind
Gazinias
Gerber daisies
Hollyhocks
Gladiolas
Calendula
Hostas
Sweet peas
Cone Flowers
Love in a mist
Nasturtiums
Anyway, you get the idea, I LOVE LOVE LOVE flowers! Thanks again and happy holidays!

Webcat (Kathy)

You are doing a wonderful gift to many with this newbie give away! I was new last year to seed collecting and sowing, and was helped by many (you inclueded) with seeds to get me started and helped again this year by many GW'rs when I lost a lot of my garden to a hail storm. My sister just sent up another collection of seeds from her co-workers in Kansas and I would love to send them in. I see things on some newbies list that they would fit their wish! Please send me your mailing info.

Many bloooms to everyone!!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hi Kat, I think we have traded before. Not exactly a newbie, avid gardener, and once worked in a specialty greenhouse in New Orleans where we grew 90% from seed, lots of open pollinated and heirloom. Totally wiped out by Katrina. Closed on a house here in North Georgia yesterday (hubbies dream), leave for N.O. sometime next week to rip out mouldy plaster! Need everyhing and everything that might grow in zone 7a. Email me the address to send my SASE. This will be a godsend, Hope to have small greenhouse up by January. New email is kientz1000@earthlink

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hello everyone, I am a newbie as several of my posts earlier this fall indicated. I have gathered and purchased a moderate amount of seed for year one, so not looking for all of your wonderfull and gracious offers of additional seeds. My success/failure rate will certainly help determine how to adjust my seed gathering next year. But certainly speaking for all the newbies, this WS community is oh so generous and most of all FUN. It's getting so close to sowing time and I just can't wait. Good Luck to all and HAPPY SOWLIDAYS :).

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I am not really new to Gradenweb but new to winter sowing, does that count. I dont normally start things from seed but want some Arborvitae 'Green Giant' trees and the are so expensive I decided to try it. And then of course I found the winter sowing forum and was hooked from there...lol
I would like to have any kind of Hardy Hibiscus seed, and some ground cover seeds for a bare bank in my front yard.

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Newbie here. I just picked up some seeds on ebay so I will be able to make a contribution to the group. I am looking for flowers that attract hummingbirds for mom. Dill and parsley for mom.

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

Hey, Webkat.

How new do you have to be? I started in August and recently got burned on a large trade so my collection for next spring was almost used up. Do you think I could get in on this RR? If not it's ok...there will be others that are tempting.

I just had a member who was very genrous with her seeds so I have some extras I could contribute to the pot also. As you may remember from our previous trades I'm not picky with my choices but any black flowers or black foliage seeds would be highly prized by me right now.

LMK.

 o
RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

It's my first year winter sowing, but I think I have some extras to contribute. Everyone has been so generous with me in my first season of trading that I would like to pay it forward!

Please send me the addy to send the seeds in, we've traded before webkat, and I'm happy to help out.

Jenny

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

I'd like to add my name if I might...I'm new to sharing seed,and would like a few,if someone can share some.I can't figure out how to make a list of what I have to offer,as the journal seems to get me nowhere...so I'll just post...sorry,I just don't know how to do it properly.
I have...hollyhocks,and giant marigolds....
I'd like...lavender,dill,rosemary,and anything that might thrive in my almost totally sunny yard. I do veggie gardens also,thank you very much. Happy Holidays to all!!

•••••Oh Boy! Yet ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT•••••


Yeaaaaa!! My final has been taken and my class is now over!!

Just talked to the P.O. and they said they have a couple BAGS
of packages waiting there for me!! Aaaaak!!

Guess I better get my hiney over there!!
I will update the arrivals here when I can go through them all and log them in....

One other thing....
some of the vets have offered to allow me to keep some of the seeds.
While this is a wonderful gesture,
and one I most sincerely appreciate :o)....
I currently have over 500 different types and need more seeds
like I need another hole in my head!! LOL!
I will continue to trade with those searching for specific items that I have,
but in need of seeds, I am not....it's all for the Newbies!!
Yipee!!!! Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

HI all :o0

I sure can't be called a newbie either to GW nor gardening in general. I am however back to square one. My home was in St.Bernard Parish, what you can think of as a burb of New Orleans. Yep when I say starting over I mean all over. I am happy to say that while I did lose my home and all within both my wife and I are well. We are also most lucky in that the house that I had been building (with my own two hands I always add ;o)in Ms. came through with out any harm. The house is just a shell, I was to start with the electric last Oct., so its a bit rough now but all is starting to come together. We just got into a FEMA trailer this past weekend and that has gotten us out of the cold, we now have a bed (no more air matress and can take a shower!

I tell ya all this so you understand that while I am not a newbie any help with seed would be greatly welcome. I am mainly in need of any vegetable seed you can share to help feed the family this spring. I'm breaking raw land so won't have a ready space till then.

Thank you!

Mike

HO, HO, HO!!!!!


WebKat5


 o
You might be wondering.....

So, some of you might be wondering, "How in the world is she keeping it all straight??"
Well, just in case you ever want to do this some day...I will tell you! :o)


First, I have some time on my hands around the holiday season because I am on a break from college and, quite frankly, even though I am still working, I just couldn't think of any better way to spend all of my "extra time", wink, wink! Also, the P.O. is working with me a little by holding the envelopes for a couple days....they wouldn't fit in my mailbox and this way we are insured there won't be any unnecessary freezing incidents!!


Second, I have different "mailboxes" set up on e-mail program. One for Newbies, one for Vets, one for vet packs received, one for newbie SASBE's received, and finally one for "Done-mailed". As the status changes for each participant, the e-mails get moved around.


Third, I have wish lists typed up, printed out and attached to the newbie's SASBE envelopes.


Fourth, as the veteran packs come in, and I know this part seems tedious, I log in each seed by type and quantity. Instead of wading through all of the seed packs when trying to fulfil wish lists, I can just refer to my list and jot the Newbie name down by each seed. Then I will just line up the envelopes, spread the seed packs in front of me, have my list handy for reference, and then pick up a seed pack and toss it in the proper envelope....and on from there. Now of course, this is how smoothly it is going in my mind and have not tested this method (LOL), but it seems to be the easiest route. I certainly appreciate the vets designating a portion, if not all, of their seeds....that is going to help immensely!!


Fifth, I am using "form letter" e-mails to a certain extent for directions, etc... I have the Newbies in a group list in my address book and the veterans have their own group list in my address book. This also insures privacy for all involved. Gotta think of everything!!


Well, there it is....in a nutshell.....my plan. Now, I certainly hope everyone will follow through as one side does depend on the other....


Everyone should end up with that "warm & fuzzy feeling" (as veteran garden_witch wants in return :o) ) this holiday season!!!


Keep 'em coming!!!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

WebKat,
Newbie here. I would love to participate! Searched trade lists and this is what I came up with for my wish list, however I'll be happy with anything other than the river rock and few weeds currently thriving in my front yard.

Trumpet Vine
Lilium (any)
Monarda Didyma

I was reading over the requests---I have already mailed Mike a large packet of different veggie seeds. But I am sure he can use more. Dale

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

• • • ATTENTION NEWBIES!! • • •

For all of the Newbies whose e-mail addresses were hidden, I have attempted to e-mail you via Garden Web.
The majority have e-mailed me (thanks!)....and if you have heard from me, then disregard this... :o)

However, if you have not received instructions from me, I need you to respond (send me an e-mail) with your e-mail address to confirm your participation. I have no other way of getting ahold of you....

So....if you have been wondering why you haven't received SASBE instructions, it is because I can't send them if I don't have your e-mail address. :o) I would really hate to see you miss out on this just because you didn't e-mail me..... :o(

DEADLINE IS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT (CST)!!!

Thanks!!

RE: NEW: Adopt-A-Newbie!!!

OK, yes I am a Newbie.
Also new to outdoor flowers. I want to plant alot of summer flowers that will re-seed. I have 2 acres to work with now and am looking to do alot of different beds. I love all flowers but have no seeds to share. I want to do the natural looking beds rather than all things lined up. I like the monarda, bellflower, coneflower & black eyed susans. Does anyone have seeds? I promise, I will have seeds to share when I get this going.
Thanks

re: new: adopt-a-newbie!!! help :)

Hi. I am VERY new (today) and I am new to gardening. We just bought our very first house this fall, and I can not wait to garden. What is easy for a new gardener?

I am in Maryland and I am willing to send a SASE.
My family loves tomatos, potatoes, strawberries, string beans, but I want to do others as well.
Any advice or seeds is greatly appreciated :)
