RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Hi! Here's the send list again for this round.

WhooHoo! Round three is underway! The rules are the same but the order changes!!!! Here it goes:

1. Becky/ Booberry85
2. Toni / Dirtdiggin
3. Nancy /Luvgardening2
4. Deb / Austinhanasmom
5. Bonnie / highalttransplant
6. Donna / Sunnyk
7. Christy / bonechickchris
8. Joan / Ejmoore510

Then back to me again!

I was thinking about what to do when the box works its way back to me. I think I'll pull out 25 packets of seeds which is what we started with. Then, I'll post a list of what's left. If people want them, it'll be first come, first serve and I'll send those seeds to you. If there are some seeds left over, then I'll send them to Need4seed. It's an organization that sends seeds to those in need (people who have been through fires, floods, economic hardship, etc.) Does everyone think this is a good idea? Other suggestions?

Everyone has been so kind & generous. Thanks for making this a terrific swap!

Becky

RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Becky, that sounds like a great plan to me!

The package arrived here this afternoon, but in addition to baking some pumpkin pies, and making cranberry sauce for my daughter's preschool Thanksgiving celebration, which is tomorrow, our house is on the market, and I just found out that my home is part of a realtor tour, which is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Accckkk!!!!

Needless to say, I haven't even opened the box, but I'll look through it tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully have it on its way by Friday or Saturday.

RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I agree, Becky, the Need4seed idea sounds awesome! I sent a batch of extras into Trudi last year...and they're already gone. So knowing those seeds will give some wonderful garden treasures to those that plant them feels so good.

The ssshhhhhh box kept growing and growing...lol people put in far more than they took. Isn't that a wonderful thing? Tells me we have a whole batch of generous, honest and crazy seed swappers here lol. I'm so proud to be a part of this swap.

Happy planting everyone. And if you need anything I have on my list, please just let me know!

I love the idea of sending the left-overs to need4seed...and this is definitely the giving time of year so it fits right in with the season.

RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Okay, quick question here. I am going through the box, and looking up stuff on the internet, but there are some beans in here that I can't find much info on. What I'm trying to find out is if they are bush or pole types.

Dapple Grey
European Soldier
Snow Cap
Orca

If someone could give me that info, it would help me in deciding what things to keep. Thanks!

Bonnie


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

What fun beans!

Dapple Grey is a snap bush bean.

European Soldier ( i had trouble with this one) is a dry pole bean.

Snowcap is a dry pole bean.

Orca or Calypso is a dry bush bean.

I was going to post a site to look up more info, but a spam blocker from GW popped up! The first time I've seen that!


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Thanks for the info!! I was just going to plant blindly:))


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Thanks, Becky! That is very helpful. I'll be sure not to take them all : )

Deb, not enough space here for planting blindly, which explains why our house is on the market.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Are Orca and Ying Yang beans the same thing? I was under the impression that they were different. I have both, and they don't look alike. I noticed that Daves actually lumps even anasazi together as Calypso beans, so is that a family with different types? I also have the red Calypso. But maybe the different markings is a result of being grown from different seed in a different area...just a guess. Maybe someone can answer this here on GW.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I got the information from Dave's and they (Orca, Calypso & Ying Yang) are all lumped together. I think we need more of a bean expert to speak up. Christy, where are you?!?!


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I agree...bean specialist...

Here's what Daves says....

Dry Bean, Orca Bean, Ying Yang Bean, Yin Yang Bean, Anasazi Bean, Phaseolus vulgaris 'Calypso'

As we know, Anasazi beans cannot be the same as any of the others...so I'm confused.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I just finished adding my stuff, and repacking the box, and I could almost hear over the loudspeaker "The store will be closing in 15 minutes. Please make your final selections, and make your way to the registers for check-out." Ha, Ha!

The box will go out this afternoon. I'll be back to post the DC# later.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I have not been over here for a bit! LOL! And here is a question for me! LOL!

Ying/Yang and Calypso are the same bean. Orca, while very similar, is not the same. The markings are slightly different. So Ying Yang is just another name for Calypso. But Orca is its own different bean.
There is also a Red Calypso. I do have some of all of them, and if you are really interested, let me know and I will try to include them in your bean envelopes.
If you were in my Black color swap, chances are I gave you Orca and Black Calypso.
I hope that helps! Christy

RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Thanks Christy. Wasn't sure, but I didn't think you sent two of the same types of beans from your black swap. And I knew anasazi was different than calypso, so your input is so helpful. Hope things calm down soon. Take care and take some time for you!...That's an order lol...

Seriously though..take care of yourself too...

RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I can't believe this round is nearing the end! I did email Robin from Need 4 Seed. She'll be happy to take whatever seeds we can spare. She's had some hardships over her own this year and is looking forward to being back in action and helping others. Thanks so much for everyone's generosity!

Just a reminder, when the box comes back to me, I'll post what is extra in the box. If you'd like it, claim it! It'll be first come first serve. The rest will go to Need 4 Seed.

Don't forget the Heat Miser / Snow Miser Fire & Ice swap has sign ups now! I'll also be starting the Seed Clean Out swap soon.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I totally forgot to post that I got the box! DUH! LOL!

I have a batch of beans to get out tomorrow, so I will get this box out along with them at the PO.
This way I dont have it for over a week like last time! LOL!

Hi Seen.

However there are lots of fun swaps on the Round Robin's page you may want to participate in. Please check out the "Heat Miser / Snow Miser Fire & Ice swap" going on right now. Christy, bonechickchris, will be posting a new schedule of swaps soon.

Happy Gardening!

Hey ...has the box made it all the way back home yet?? Or is it on break til after the Holidays(which might not be a bad idea LOL)


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

It shouldn't be "on break!" The last I knew Christy had it. Then it goes to Joan & then back to me. I appreciate you keeping tabs. Last week was HECTIC! It's getting back to normal this week (as normal as normal is a week & a half before Christmas!)


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

I am going to freak! Didnt Joan get the box? I sent it out with the first batch of beans, or so I thought! OMG! If I messed this up, I am going to be flaming especially after promising to get it right back out! I think you should remove my moderator status! LOL!

Really, I thought I mailed it, but I just did not post because I was in bean land. I only have 3 bean people left and non of them are boxes, so I am confused. Let me check to see if it is in the bean stuff somewhere. I am sorry!

I will be back after I check here.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

OK! I found it/ It was stuck in the bigger box that I am in the process of sending to Toni/. I dont know how that happened. I have the confirmation number here which is what I thought was the shhh box, but it was Dempa's bean box/ So confusing/. I really have to curb myself with these swaps at the same time! LOL! I had about 15 small postal boxes infront of me with the bean swap and this and other things, and I just got it all confused. I was worried there that I may had sent it to one of the bean members. Regardless, it is still my fault, and I am sorry it seems to be an occuring thing with me :(
Sorry again, I know I am always messing things up. I will have it out asap along with boxes I am sending toni and becky. I have just been so busy, I still do not have my main Christmas lights up yet!

RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Seeds should be coming your way Joan!


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

Bump! Joan, please let me know when you get the seeds.


 o
RE: update: ssshhhhhh! secret edibles round robin ii

After being stalled for a little spell, we're back on track! Joan received the seeds last week. They got an arctic blast and got snow in Mississippi!!! Somewhere along the line, the list with the pecking order & addresses got lost. However, we're straightened out again now.

Keep Joan in your prayers. She's still looking for work. Christy's luck with mechanically things has NOT improved! She got the brakes fixed on her truck 2 weeks ago and something went wrong with them!!! I really hope her bad luck ends soon. She's had a rough spell.

Just to recap what happens when the seeds come back to me: I'll pull out 25 packets of seeds which is what we started with. Then, I'll post a list of what's left. If people want them, it'll be first come, first serve and I'll send those seeds to you. If there are some seeds left over, then I'll send them to Need4seed. It's an organization that sends seeds to those in need (people who have been through fires, floods, economic hardship, etc.)

That's news for now!
