I’m patrob (Patricia) and have volunteered to host the WLOMWL Swap this year. This is my favorite seed swap of the entire year, and I’m hoping that we’ll have great participation again this year. Everyone is invited to join in. It’s all about having fun, sharing our seeds with friends, and, of course, seeing how many of our own wishes will be fulfilled. I’ll do my best to follow in the footsteps of the wonderful hosts we have had in the past. Thank you, Michelle, Alana, and Patty!

I’m sticking with the same procedures that previous hosts have used with just a few tweaks. I hope I have thought of everything since posts on GW can not be edited. If I need to make changes or additions, my later posts will overrule anything stated here.

IMPORTANT DATES:
Signup starts now and continues through Dec. 9, 2012.
Your want lists can be updated through Dec. 9 as well.
Seeds must be mailed to me no later than Jan. 10, 2013.
I will mail packets back to you no later than Jan. 24, 2013.

1.As soon as you sign up, please send an e-mail with your GW name, real name, and mailing address to me
pat46rob@gmail.com

Include any special instructions that you have for me, such as “duplicates preferred to substitutions” or “no duplicates" or "no vegetables” or “no trees,” etc.
I will not be sending you lots of e-mail, will not share your info with anyone, and will delete it as soon as the swap is completed.
Using e-mail allows me to send messages, if needed, to a large group at once.
I will e-mail everyone my mailing address as soon as signups end on Dec. 9.
If you prefer not to e-mail me, please be sure that I can communicate with you through GardenWeb’s message system.

2. Your want list needs to be posted on your member page.
I will compile a master want list on Google Docs as I did last year. The link is at the bottom of this post.
Put the date you updated your list at the top of your list.
If you are not ready for others to view your list now and start filling packets, you might want to say "Not Updated" at the top.
Post to this thread when you make changes to your list.
Do not add to or delete from your list after Dec. 9.

(HINTS: If you update your list as soon as possible, you are likely to receive more of the seeds you want. Many start packing seeds as soon as the swap starts and send in right after signups end. If you add new items to your list, putting them at the top with a heading like "Newly Added" will help people notice them.)

3. Mark each packet you send in with at least the
name of the plant, including the scientific name if you can,
year the seed was harvested or packaged for,
recipient’s number,
your name or number.

If the seeds fulfill a generic wish, such as “butterfly attractor” or “your favorite perennial” or “anything red,” please mark this on the packet so I’ll know for sure it was requested.

4. If you have multiple packets for the same person, please tape or bag them together to help me sort.

5.Send only seeds another participant has requested and only viable seeds not more than two or three years old.
Be as generous as you can in the number of seeds per packet, at least 15-20 seeds, however, many of us would prefer fewer seeds of something really special to none.
Bottom line: Send only seeds you would be pleased to receive!

Please do not send anything other than seeds -- no cuttings, bulbs, etc.

6. You may send in as many packets as you want, and you will receive the same number in return.
How many of your wishes are filled depends on what is sent in for you.
If fewer are sent in for you than you sent to me, you may choose to have duplicates, when possible, or substitutions. See #2.

7. Now here are my thoughts on return shipping:
I want each person to choose the method best for him/her, and I do not mind mailing packages several different ways.

A. You might choose to include a return label and enough stamps for me to mail your same bubble envelope back to you.
If you send extra stamps, I will return them to you.
I just checked the USPS website, and Delivery Confirmation does not appear as an option for first class envelopes. (I have used it in the past, but it is not there now!)

B. If you want Delivery Confirmation, you may include a return label and enough stamps for me to send your bubble envelope back at the first class parcel rate with Delivery Confirmation.
Parcel rates are a bit higher than envelope rates and depend on distance and weight.
DC for a first class parcel is an additional 85 cents. There is no option to print a shipping label from the USPS website and save.
My zip code is 76844, so you can go to the USPS website and estimate the shipping charge.
Again, if you send too many stamps, I will return extras.

C. Or you can send me a check or money order for $5.10 and I will print a shipping label from the USPS website and return your seeds in a large priority padded envelope with Delivery Confirmation included.

Okay, let's get this swap underway!!!

RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Please sign me up too. I will send my e-mail shortly. I just updated my lists for the Wintersowing Swap and will probably mark any additions after this point to make them stand out. I hope my tables on my lists don't cause any issues with your compiled list. If they do I can send it to you in a different format.

That special character bug is annoying isn't it. That happened to me too. If you copied and pasted text from Word or something similar, it will look fine in the preview but be messed up in the final post. The funny part is that usually people that compose their long posts in Word or something ahead of time are doing it to make it easier to spell check, proof read, and the like to avoid errors...and then it ends up like that :) I can't remember at the moment what I did before to fix it :(

I would suggest that people don't try to send things at the first class envelope rate. The envelope rate is cheaper because they go through the automated postal sorting rollers which may crush the seeds. That is why they have to be non-rigid, thin, and uniformly thick to go that rate. Some post offices will return bubble envelopes or deliver them postage due even if they seem to meet the envelope requirements.

The first class parcel rate is just based on weight, zip code does not matter. It only goes up to 13 oz. though.

Over 13 oz has to go Priority Mail or parcel post. The Priority Mail flat rates packages will cover any zip code and almost any weight. It is annoying that the USPS website only has options to ship Priority or Express, but those are their money makers. They also are really pushing the flat rate packages because you more often than not will overpay by using them.

You can also do online postage for first class with the cheaper .19 electronic rate delivery confirmation, although there is no discount on the postage itself. You can do that through PayPal or of course if you have one of the paid postage services, just not through the USPS website. They used to have a downloadable program called USPS Shipping Assistant that let you do it too, but I don't know if they have it anymore or not. It is a moot point though unless you happen to have a postal scale or other accurate scale.

If your post office has those automated postal centers in the lobby it is handy for sending in your package with exact postage and not having to wait in line. I don't know how much dc is with those for first class. It also should let you print custom stamps with whatever amount you punch in that you can send in... but that wouldn't allow Pat to send back any overage I guess. For first class parcel rate $1.95 covers up to 3 oz and each additional ounce up to 13 oz adds $.17 which they do have stamps for as well...so that is an option too.

That was way more information than anyone wanted I'm sure! I tend to do that as evidenced by my want lists and seed packets as I'm sure you'll all see :)

Off to send my hopefully shorter e-mail with sign-up info!

-Morgan aka Molanic


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Thanks, Morgan. My head hurt by the time I read all the details about mailing on the USPS website. I have a good digital scale, but I do not have an online mailing service other than USPS. My town is tiny, less than 1800 population and our post office does not have automation. On the plus side, there are seldom lines except right before the 4:00 closing time. I'll do my best to mail each person's envelope as he/she requests and as economically as I can.

Your table format has not been a problem in the psst, so I'm guessing it will work okay with the changes that have been made to Google Docs, now called Google Drive. I'll add your list to the compiled list this afternoon and find out!

Glad to have you participate again!

I've been e-mailing people who have participated in the last two WLOMWL swaps to let them know that this swap is being held now since there was discussion of waiting until January to start. I'd be extremely disappointed if I checked back in January and found I had missed the whole thing!! A few do not have contact info on their member pages and some e-mail addresses may not be current, so if you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know. We always welcome new swappers too!

Glad to have you, Heidi!

If you have not participated in this swap before, NO invitation is needed to join. I sent e-mails to all who took part the last two years just to make sure they did not think the swap was going to be held in January. There were a very few former participants who did not have an e-mail address posted on their member page and did not have the GardenWeb messaging activated. I did not mean to leave those people out, but I did not have a way to contact them.

I told my husband this morning that I was going to rehome a lot of my seed stash and explained that I was hosting this swap. When I said a few thousand packets of seed would start arriving here in a month or so, he just said "I hope you have fun." I think he was sincere. lol After 37 years of being married to me, very little surprises him.

RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

This looks like it's going to be fun. Sign me up.


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Welcome, Jeff! This swap is always fun for me, and I hope it will be for you as well.


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

IN A POST ON NOV. 25, I MISSTATED THE CLOSING DATE, BUT THERE HAS BEEN NO CHANGE. SIGNUPS AND CHANGES TO "SEEDS WANTED" LISTS STILL END ON DEC. 9.

Just a reminder: Please post here when your list is ready to be added to the Composite List. Even after I add your list to the Composite List, you may make changes until Dec. 9, the day that signups and changes end. Just post here whenever you have made changes, and I'll do a quick cut and paste.

Many are already busy filling seed packets to grant wishes, so the sooner you have your list ready for them to use, the better. I know this is a BUSY time of year, and I don't want anyone to feel rushed. However, I do want you to have as many of your seed wishes fulfilled as possible!!!!


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

I tweaked my list a bit Patricia.
Alana

And then I added this edit as an experiment. Woohoo!

 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

My wishlist is up to date. It's a bit long, but not nearly as long as it was!


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Thanks, Jeff, for letting me know. A long list is good as it gives others more opportunities to send seeds you will like. At least that's my excuse for having a very long list myself!!!


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Good morning,

I have updated my list but with under 30 wants I will likely do it again before the deadline.It's up to you Patricia if you want to add it to the composite list now or wait a few days.

I am trying to reduce my collected seed stash, would it be too confusing for you if I make envelopes for each player and ask that all the seeds enclosed go to that player? I have a very small wants list and I am only interested in seeds from that so I DO NOT want the same amount of seeds back! Is this doable??

Please let me know asap (I already have over a hundred packets and I am not far through my collected seed stash).

Have a great day!

Lisa


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Ack! Newbie here. I've been making up my seeds by player, too, and did not know there was a different way to do it. Are we supposed to send packs in by theme and not by player? Can we do both? Other?

Interested to find out.

karen


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Hi Karen,

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to confuse you. I always pack that way for this swap, My question was different than the way it was read.

Okay, I've tweaked and tweaked and I think I'm finally done updating my list.
Also I'm okay with receiving doubles or triples if needed.


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Hi Patricia,
Please count me in. I'll email you shortly.
I'll try to get my want list up by today.


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Lisa, this is really embarassing - not your fault at all - born this way argh. Evidently, I thought this was the theme thread, not the wlomwl. Now that I'm clear which thread this is, I do believe I'm pointed in the right direction. Thanks for your response anyway.

sheepishly,
karen


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Karen - Pack them by player. What I do is take a snack or lunch ziplock baggie and put a sticker on the outside with the players name on it and filler up with seed packets. I also send a list of what I'm sending each player to the host so is she needs to track what a person has been sent, this helps out.

Sandy


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Hi Sandy, that is exactly how I've always done a swap like this one - somehow my brain crossed the theme swap with the wlomwl swap on this thread, but I'm clear now. Thank you for helping.


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Hi Patricia,
My wish list is posted.
Thanks.


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

A busy day of posts, and I had to be out of town all day! It sounds like everyone is on the right track, and I will add updated lists to the Composite List in just a few minutes.

It will help me tremendously if everyone will group seeds for each participant in a baggie or tape them together if there are just a couple. If you can include a list, that would also very helpful. Readable labels on each seed packet are most important!

As far as possible, I will see that each person receives the seeds sent for him/her. Several people are sending in many more packets than they want back, and I plan to give extras wherever I can from my seed stash as well. A few prefer not to have duplicates; some may send 40 packets, and others, 200 or more. I'll likely be wishing for a magic wand during the last week or so before I mail your packages back to you! I'll do my best to make each package special and one I would be happy to receive myself.

We are still open for new participants to sign up for 5 more days! Sunday, Dec. 9, is also the last day to change your "seeds wanted" lists!

There are still 5 participants who have not told me they are ready for me to add their lists to the Composite List. If yours is ready, please post here and tell me to add it.

If anyone wants to change your list, make those changes to the list on your member page and then post here to let us know you have updated.

Patricia,

I went to santa rosa gardens and swallowtail gardens online within the last couple of weeks. My checkbook is now a hundred dollars lighter, I just have to stop looking. The really sad part is, that after pulling out my commercial bin of seeds, I already have some of the seeds that I ordered....

I just thought of a few last second additions for my list. They can just be copied from here anywhere into my part of the composite list rather than copying from my trade page (which I did not update). Here it is:

-sunflowers, any especially small headed multi-branched ones
-agastaches, any except for a. foeniculum and a. rupestris
-rudbeckia hirta, any interesting varieties

Thanks! I'm anxious to start packing up stuff soon.

RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

Hi Patricia,

I've replaced my wish list with the final updated version - it's on my GW member trade page. Would it be easier for you if I email it?

After the deadline passes and no more changes are expected, could you email me a final version of the composite list that's in plain text?

Thanks for taking this on,
Karen


 o
changed again!

Morning Patricia,

I am so glad that I decided to go and look over my wants list,As far as I could see it didn't update last time. I have made my final changes...sorry, I know this is a pain in the neck for you.

Lisa (who has been packing and going back to a list when it is posted that it changed)

RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

It's snowing here today (so far 5 inches since 2am) and sounds like it will be snowing until midnight; so it's a good day to review everyone's updated lists and see how many more packets I can add to their baggies!! I've been packing seed packets for a couple weeks and have been able to match quite a number of wants!!!

Sandy


 o
RE: new: wlomwl swap 2012 (what's left on my want list)

We are still adding new swappers and updating lists until the end of the day today, midnight Central time, Sunday, Dec. 9. Post on this thread IF you make changes to your list on your member page! If this thread runs over the 150 post limit before tomorrow, I will start a new one. Otherwise, look for the new thread tomorrow.

Morgan, I added your new items to the top of your list.

Karen, I copied the list on your member page to the Composite Document. It worked fine! I'll e-mail you tomorrow. In the new thread I am going to offer the plain text copy to anyone who wants it.

Lisa (ishareflowers), I've replaced your list with the one that is on your member page at this time. Let me know if there are still problems. It's no trouble to fix them.

I'm all caught up to this point, and we have just a couple of people still working on their lists.

Sandy, that's a lot of snow! I'm glad you have something you enjoy doing while you are cooped up inside, and we'll all enjoy having seed wishes fulfilled! It's been over two months since the middle of Texas has seen a trace of moisture, so we'd even take a light snowfall at this point! But just a light one.
