Another Angie boo-boo

"ME will be relaying any messages or questions to Patty"?????


Honestly I did make it past kindergarten...lol..Of course I meant,"I will be relaying any messages or questions to Patty."
I never seize to amaze myself!(sigh) :)


 o
Me again!

OMG! I dont even think I thanked those that sent hostess gifts! Of course Patty and I loved them!:)
I am munching on the candy cane Lisa sent as we speak!;)
Both Patty and myself were not expecting gifts,but they were such a wonderful surprise to both of us and very much appreciated! Thanks girls!:)

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Happy belated Bday Paula! :)


LOL Doris! I am doing well,how about yourself? I did get your email,thanks so much,that email made my day! I will replying soon! :)


I just wanted to let everyone know,that if you did not receive seeds from me,it is because I knew there was ALOT sent in for you and didn't want to add to the chaos,there is no other reason than that. I just don't want anyone thinking that I don't love them anymore!;)


I hope you all are excited.....you should be!:)

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I am soooo excited to recieve my envie. I'm thinking it will, hands down, be the best Christmas gift I recieve this year :)


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I'm thinking it will, hands down, be the best Christmas gift I recieve this year :)

I was going to instantly agree with that too, but BF bought me a new printer here a while back as an early Christmas gift. Mine conked out at the worst possible time (isn't that usually the case) and he/we got me all fixed up really quick.

Patty got any idea what is wrong with her computer? The computer itself, or maybe her ISP? Hope she gets fixed up quickly. I know how I feel when mine is 'down'.

I've finally started belatedly on my fall housecleaning and have been working on the kitchen today. I figure if/when the weather breaks I'm going to want to be playing outside if at all possible. Each winter I 'intend' to do some serious cleaning and painting and before I know it spring has sprung and I have procrastinated too long.

Mid Feb spring thaw is only a little over 2 months away here...Whoo-Hoo!


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Yes like Christmas! :D


Patty said her computer is dead,I don't think it is the ISP,from what I got from her is that she is getting nothing from it. Her hubby is computer savvy,so if there was something that could be done,he would have already done it.
It stinks it happened right now,not only because of the swap,but it is the holidays and not everybody can just run out and buy a new computer for themselves. So there is a possibility that we may not see Patty online for awhile....sigh...:(
Who knows maybe her hubby or one of his buddies will be able to figure out what it is and maybe be able to bring it back! I have my fingers crossed for her! :)


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hi everyone!

Angie - thanks for helping Patty out with posting while her computer is down and for taking the time to post all those lovely pictures! I just love that unknown ajuga and curly willow - hint hint Patty! I think I see a plant trade in our future! LOL The towel and plant tags you received as hostess gifts are too cute! I'm happy to hear that you both are enjoying your new gifts!

Gotta run now, just got home and need to do some other things.

Oh the same here to also to you Angie. After you get all your goodies, if you see anything of mine you would like, just let me know and I'll get it out to you. K?

Oh...and a big thank you too for all your help in the swap.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hi ya Angie! Thank you so much for all your help and for keeping us up to date.

Cindy ; )


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Me want to thank you, too, Angie! LOL

I do hope Patty gets a working computer soon. I'd be so lost without one for ANY length of time. Also, I'm sure she would love to read all the excited posts when we get our seeds in. Let her know we totally appreciate her!

Blessings,
Angela


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I will pass on the well wishes!:)
I am hoping I have enough ink left to print out comments for her,I think she would really like to see how each person enjoyed their seeds!:)
I am starting to believe Patty's computer has a mind of it's own and a twisted sense of humor! I don't know if some of you remember last year around this time it happened too!


Well,I am off to bed,I am weary and cranky...lol...nite nite


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Yay! Yay! Yay! I can hardly wait for my package in the mail!! I will be running to the mailbox every morning and not even noticing this bitter cold =)


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Me goodness, Angie, have you been getting enough sleep? :) Dare I even point out that it's "cease to amaze," or would you prefer to not know about that one? Oops, cat's out of the bag now! :P

Thanks for posting those photos, but I can't believe you "forgot" to take pictures of all those seeds! It's because the moment you saw them, you tossed the camera aside to roll in them, right? And then the camera wouldn't work after that. That's what would have happened to me!

Annette, OMG, if I had to sort 12000 seeds Id be seizing also, I think she chose the right word for that one!

lol!


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

hee hee hee.

Stagerat said "roll in them". hee hee hee. (that's a reference to my joke from last year. hee hee hee.)

Yup, she and I must've been twins separated at birth. 11,111. Now year-long-gone joke connections.

This is too much!
(From your earlier comment -- I'm eastern time, nearly central, and haven't had pretzels in the house for a while --- but I like them, a LOT.)

(***Columbine....remember after you get your seeds, for winning the guess you can raid my list if you'd like -- up to 40 packs.)

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

vikingkirken...I read it that way too at first. But then noticed the SENT next to certain names. Ours haven't shipped yet...wow I looked at that list and thought HOLY COW how did those two get all that done so quickly lol.... I'll be right there at the mailbox when they do ship ;) ohhh the anticipation and waiting for those received posts....it's so fun!!! Stay warm....it's blasted cold out there!!!!!!!


 o
Awesome!! RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

MINE SHIPPED MINE SHIPPED!!! Ooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I can't wait to get my package!!!

Thanks for all your hard work, Patty and Angie!

Deanna

P.S. Can we post anything about the seeds that we received, or is that supposed to not be known?


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Well, we did post last year about how excited we were and some of the things we were blown away by. I suppose it would be fine to do it again this year. :-)

 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

LOL stage rat,Unbelievable! Maybe I was seizing...lol...actually I have alot going on right now preparing for the holidays and Diana's visit! Late nights and endless days,I am surprised I even remember who I am! :)
Yes the seeds did side track me,the thoughts of rolling in them did occur too! :)


Bragging about seeds is alright with me! :)


No word from Patty yet today,I am off to do some shopping and will be out most of the evening,so there may not be any word until tomorrow!
Until then......have fun! :)


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

This has been the worst for health wise for me,, but waiting on my great package of seeds is a true blessing,,will be watching the mail man,, thank you girls so very much,,,,Merry Christmas to you all...Lisa


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Yeaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!I received my package today and spent the afternoon taking them out a few at a time and shouting woopie with every handful. My best Christmas gift ever. Great job Patty and Angie and many thanks to all in the swap for all the great seeds! Can't wait for spring to plant and will start some winter sowing before long. Suzanne


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

What a wonderful suprise!!!!

I got my package of seeds. There are so many I don't know where to begin. THANK YOU each and every one of you. I'm speechless. I will start my wintersowing right soon. Maybe tomorrow. We have so much snow they will be well protected for the winter.

Where and how do you organize this? How to start? Any help or ideas.

Now the seeds have arrived I do have a few questions, should they be asked here or another place.

Some seed packs don't have a senders name on them so I don't know who to thank.

My extra seeds were sent back to me. Was this for a special reason or did you not need them. They were to be used for who or what ever. But that is ok.

Many, many thanks.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Tina, you have a really nice trade list and that is a kind offer! I guess I will have to see where I am after my seeds arrive from Patty...so many wonderful seeds and not enough room to plant them, ya know what I mean?
Take care.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Wow!! I got my seeds yesterday. I am so excited and very much pleased with what I got. I can't wait to start wintersowing. It was such a good christmas gift. Thank you everybody for sending such a good selections. My special thanks to everyone who sent the requested seeds. Patty thank you so much for all the hardwork. Thank you for the special card and extra seed packets. I am so full and satisfied and I think I don't need to join another swap.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Jasmine


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Wow! Some of you got them pretty quick! :)


I am so happy you ladies are so happy with your seeds! :)


I didn't make it to Patty's today,we had an ice storm early on in the day and it messed up everything! Patty is still working on the final envies as we speak,if she doesn't finish them before the weeks end I will be going over to help her. The weekdays are impossible between life here and Patty's job,so I can only help her on the weekends. I was really hoping to be there today,it is down to the truly hard envies to pack up and I would have loved to been there to help her! Darn weather!


Patty said she will be mailing a bunch of envies on Tuesday. That will be her first chance to make it to the PO before work.:)


I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I will be sure to post those that are mailed on Tuesday evening,so be sure to check back,you may be on the list! :)


 o
Sorry!

gmom,I will relay your questions to Patty and let you know what she says!:)


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Words are beyond me right now!! I am amazed at the wonderful selection of seeds sent to me in my package! There isn't a one that I am not going to plant!!
Many Thanks to all who sent seeds in for me! Very much appreciated! And many, many thanks go to Patti and Angie for the work put in for us to get the special seeds we hoped for!!
I am almost crying I am so happy with them! This is my best Christmas present I will receive by far!!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart! Hugs, Melinda


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Awwwww!!!!!!!! It's SO touching to hear the comments from those that have received their packages! It was a lot of work for all us, but well worth it when we get to read the joy (and tears in some cases) from our great GW friends/family!

Blessings,
Angela

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hi,
Got my package Saturday, but had to wait till today to get online. It was way beyond my expectations. My husband is worried that I'm going to try to start all of the seeds. I would love to be able to do that. Everyone is truly generous with their seeds and their time. I can't wait until next year when my stash is bigger and I can return the generosity.
Thank you very much.
Debby


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

What a tremendous bag of seeds I found in my mailbox today! It's better than Christmas! I can't believe how many of my wishes have been filled along with some very nice surprises. Thank you to all who shared your seeds with me, and special thanks to Pattie and Angie for all the sorting and packing.
Patricia

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Good Morning, Patty and Gardeners,

I can't wait to start planting!

wet cat

Just kidding...I'll be awaitin just whenever it arrives and don't want Patty to stress herself out because of me getting mine. Just for fun, I think I will just go buy me a new washer, as I have been sort of needing a new one and have been looking at them a good bit on line. That can be my excitement until the seeds arrive.

Please tell Patty not to worry. I'll live.

Sue


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Yes! Please tell her not to worry about mine too! Life is full of the unexpected - don't we all know. It will be a package for me to look forward to after the holidays.

Thanks guys for all of your hard work and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! - Lisa

I came home tonight to a huge surprise. I wasn't even on the list as someone whose seeds were on their way. Best surprise ever!!!

Thanks Patty and Angie for all your hard work. Thanks to everyone who participated. You are santa's best elves!!!
I received items that I never thought that I would. wow woot!!! woot!! Happy Holidays everyone.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Patty and Angie, You both need to slow down on this swap and enjoy the holiday time. It goes by all too quickly. As others have stated, I'm fine with getting mine after Christmas. No time to winter sow and if I do find time, I have plenty to choose from here that I can do.

Now go and enjoy your families and have some Holdiay fun!!

You silly goose, you know ur supposed to use the Santa Tracker for this package, not the usps!!!!


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I checked the delivery confirmation number and it does not show up in the USPS Track and Confirm system online. Thinking there is a number missing - only 19 numbers posted and there should 20 - 4 numbers space 4 numbers space etc.

Best to you,

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Ok, Nancy Drew got it figured out by looking at the previous ones.

It is

0308 2040 0002 3990 9366

and 9359 for Sandra.

It just shows it was mailed yesterday at 8:38, with no further updates, and the same for Sandra's. I just got back from town, and was so hoping it 'might' have gotten here in one day.

off to unpack...

Enjoy your seeds, everyone, and Patty, take a break!

Happy Holidays, everyone, especially to my psychic twin! :)

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Finally got my seeds today that Patty mailed last week. I've been waiting, watching for the mail lady, every day. I got some wonderful seeds!

My wish list was pitifully small, but I listed general herbs, and patty set me up with some fantastic and much-needed herbs. All you people that sent in herbs, THANK YOU! Ollierose sent me fennels and cilantro, dirtdiggin sent me mammoth dill, basil, and a fennel (different variety than ollierose), gmom26boys sent me sage and chives, angelady sent me sweet marjoram, then unnamed people sent me common and slow-bolt cilantro, thai purple basil, dill, smoky fennel, globe basil, italian parsley, true greek oregano, Laura flat-leaved parsley, pesto basil, and summer savory. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?! ALL THOSE DIFFERENT KINDS OF HERBS! No doubling up on seeds or repeats.

Then on top of that I got tomatos, squash, lettuce, and collards. That last one is pretty funny. I'm a former Georgia girl who lives way up north, and you'll never believe what I had cooking today before I went to the mailbox--collard greens! It's been a long time, but a store up here carries them, so tonight was black-eyed peas and collard greens night. I miss collards. I hope I can get these seeds to grow way up here!

Then the flowers are too numerous to mention, and all wonderful. Several kinds of poppies, several kinds of asclepias (tuberosas and perennials), lambs ears, violas/johnny-jump-ups, and gaillardias (I'm figuring out that you could fill up a whole yard just with the different kinds of gaillardias out there!), and delphiniums. Also got mountain bluett (I honestly didn't think I'd get that one--thank you jaynine!), cornflower, and globe amaranth.

What an amazing pot of fantastic seeds! I've read that delphiniums wintersow well, and I am excited about getting them going! Tried some from seed last year the "normal" way and it was a clearcut failure. Thank you all so much for sending me so many great seeds. This has truly been a fun swap, with results far beyond what I expected. Really, patty, you clearly put some serious effort into getting me a variety of seeds without repeats. It's truly fantastic. It's no wonder people keep coming back.

And, agirlsagirl, I LOVE my Chocolate Orange prize and the other surprises! They are wonderful!! I still can't believe I guessed a flower. Thanks so much for your generosity. I can't wait to grow them all!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL, AND THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Deanna

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Patty & Angie, No worries 'bout me -- it's fine if mine arrive in January. I have plenty of seeds to start sowing after Christmas to keep me busy. Enough to roll in here already. (sheesh. that's pathetic.)

"Psychic Twins Activate." "Shape of a RottoTiller." "Form of a Soaker Hose."

(Okay, am I totally showing exactly what age I am?)


Happy Holidays everyone! :) Especially my "other half". :)

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Okay, I have a confession to make. I just went out in the dark with a flashlight, and walked a block in the ice & snow to check the mailbox for my package. It wasn't there, but I did have a couple of cards from the Secret Santa swap, and another seed catalog : )

I'm just a little excited, LOL!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hi Everyone,
So glad to see alot of packages sent!! Can't wait to see a big "Sent" beside my name too!

Doris,
hope that Reindeer (Elk) makes it to your mailbox very soon, and no more pit stops! ; )

Bonnie,
Sounds like you had a profitable walk in the snow after all! Made me laugh when you said it was in the dark with a flashlight... oh my you really want those seeds... LOL ; )

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Carol, For the "How many seed packets were sent in" game, StageRat & I both guessed 11,111...at exactly the same posting minute. Freaky. Then she tapped back into the "Patty rolling in seed packs" joke I started up last year. Freaky.

So we're Psychic Twins now. I'm suggesting we replace the Wonder Twins from the old Superfriends cartoon. Can you see us flying around zapping the weeds away with one beam of a Freeze laser? Way cool.

Hi Guys!

I did get my package yesterday and its always amazing to open those. I shall have to delete my whole want list!

The reindeers left me some stuff for the compost bin also.

Some of you guys know that Busse Woods in Elk Grove Village actually has some elks or reindeers to some kind of big animal with antlers. Its a brain fart when you see them!

heehee!

Thanks to Patti and to Angie and Merry Xmas to Everybody.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Oh, My heavens! I got my package, too! Of course, there's way too many awesome things to list every one, but I can definitely say that there's no need for me to do any other swaps at all! I think it took me 2 hours to go through every wonderful packet, and I enjoyed every single minute of it!

I was totally in awe over some of the special seeds sent in for me. I would have been happy with even 2 or 3 seeds of some of them, but I received some generous amounts in some cases. You ladies/gentlemen really blow me away! Thank you so much for your generosity! Thank you, Patty, for your tremendous undertaking that you spent countless hours on for us, and thank you, Angie, for your dedication to helping Patty accomplish this big feat! WoWWee!!!!.... Me very happy! LOL

Blessings,
Angela

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Stopped by the mailbox on my way home from finishing my Christmas shopping, and found my package! Yippee!!! It took me at least 20 minutes to go through it all, and I have a small pile that I need to do some research on. I just wanted to say that out of all of the swaps I have ever done, this one is my absolute favorite. Most large swaps, you get a few wants, and a lot of stuff you can't use. This swap, is the exact opposite. Tons of stuff from my want list, stuff not on the want list, but still desirable, and only a couple of things to pass on to others.

I hate to just single out one person, since so many sent in wonderful things for me, but there is one person that sent in a lot of things that were hard to fill wishes, uncommon flowers that I didn't expect to receive, and that person is Jaynine. You have the most awesome seed collection, thank you so much for sharing with me! In the veggie department, I think the person with the most extensive collection might be Dirtdiggin! There were also lots of cool things from Drippy, Sueirish, Ollierose, Agirlsgirl and ...
Of course, I also received a lot of wishes from folks that didn't put their names on the packets, so I can't thank them personally, but you know who you are. I am so thankful to each and every person that sent something in for me.

Thank you Patty and Angie for hosting! You guys did an awesome job, and I hope that you'll do it again next year.

Bonnie

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Patty...
Smiley-you go girl!

Well, my wonderful surprise arrived yesterday. WOW! I am one happy old gal.

I got several wants from my list, cool tomatoes, poppies, sweet peas, morning glories, salvias, sedums, alliums, solidagoes, epatoriums, asclepias, various dills and veggies, and numerous other really good goodies.

Patty sent a nice card, letting me know I had sent in 130 things, and that after the things designated for me, she made 35 pics from the extras, and hoped she did a good job of picking.

Patty, you did an excellent job of picking and packing. I am so very pleased. I know it was probably not easy, not having a computer to check lists as you mentioned, but I really don't think you could have done any better with mine, if you had had access to a computer.

It is so much fun to see the various ways members pack and label seeds as well as the seeds themselves being so interesting. I got so many nice things too that I wasn't even aware I wanted or needed. What a nice way to get introduced to some new things. I'm just thrilled with everything.

Thanks Patty for all your time, energy, and concern.
Thank you Angie for all your assistance in the swap.
Thanks you Angela, for the 'compiled' list that helped me so much.

Thanks to all those who sent seeds specifically for me, as well as to everyone else who participated in the swap. It is hard to tell where a lot of the nice things came from, since several weren't marked. I appreciate you all for participating and making this such a wonderfully fabulous swap.

Hello and Merry Christmas to all you wonderful GW Friends.

I got my package yesterday and really don't know what I can say that will let each of you know how much I appreciate all the work and generousity that went into this swap.
This was my first RR swap and I can't imagine that it gets any better than this.
I got sooooo many seeds that were on my list that once I update there won't be much left.
A hugh THANK YOU to Patty for taking on the job of hosting this.
A smaller hugh THANK YOU to Angie for all the helping.
You both did such an awesome job and I know you had to give up a lot of your time that you could have spent on family and holiday.
Thank you to Angela for the compiled list and to everyone that participated for gathering, sorting, packaging and SHARING your seeds.
I received such a great assortment from so many of you.

I agree with highalttransplant that I hate to mention just one or two people when all of you were so sharing but,,,,
Jaynine sent so many uncommon, much wanted seeds from my want list that I want to especially thank her.
And Dirtdiggin sent so many great heirloom tomato seeds it's going to be fun doing searches on all of them.

I hope to have more to share next year and plan to start saving seeds early in 2010 for this swap.

Happy Gardening to ALL


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

My envelope arrived today and sure made me happy. Thanks to all who participated in this wonderful swap. I see lots of different names on my packets and am happy for each packet that was sent to me! I am especially excited to get some brugmanisa seeds and the garlic... and it's hard to single one out, but especially excited to get Gloriosa Lily. This plant has fascinated me and I have never had one. I tried ordering seeds for it one year but not a single one sprouted so I am hoping for luck this time. I am also really happy to have lots of spinach to plant and pansies! Coleus seeds are great because mine grew beautifully but did not set seeds this year. I defintiely got some miniatures and variegated plants so jumping up and down happy on their account, too!
Thank you all so much and thanks once again to our hostess(es.) Happy Holidays to all!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hi,
Could Patty or agirlsgirl please email me asap, I received somebody else's seeds. I got mine on the first send out and was suprised when I found another package in the mail. It was my envelope, addressed to me but when I opened it, it had a note to another swapper. I'm on vacation right now so have to deal with dial-up and it just makes me want to throw the whole computer out the window. I'll be checking back around 11 to 11:30 so I can hopefully get this package back in the mail.

Thanks alot.
Debby


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

debby_1,

Patty's computer is broken so she is not getting the replies or emails.

Angie has not been posting other than to post as more have been mailed and to provide the Delivery Confirmation numbers, but she could be lurking though.

Why not post the member name here, since the member is likely looking daily for the package, and possibly someone can email you the addy other than Angie. I'd also suggest you emailing Angie with the name. That 'might' be the quickest way to get the addy.

by the way, Angie posted on Dec 17th on Patty's behalf, "Patty is not sure if she will be able to get these all out before Christmas. Some unexpected things have come up and the holidays are busy for all of us. Dont worry though,you will get them and you will be happy with them! :)"

Sue...rbb as usual

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Good idea Sue, either that or if you have the GW nick of the person who's package you received, email them via GW (if their email is listed) I'm sure they would appreciate the email. Well I know I would ;)

I'm so excited...yay!!!! my package is on the way lol

Can't wait!

My seeds arrived early this week! I was SO excited to open that package. I couldn't believe how many extras Patty threw in... I am going to have to delete a lot of my wish list! So a HUGE "THANK YOU" to everyone who sent stuff in for me!!

Sorry it took me several days to post this... I've been sidelined with trying to finish making Christmas gifts AND dealing with a stomach bug that hit me as well as my two kids AND the little boy I babysit. Hopefully I will be feeling better by Christmas, and the hubby won't catch it!!

Thanks again to all, and especially to Patty!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I can't believe what wonderful seeds came back to me. This really is Christmas week. I'll be researching these seeds for days. I'll be planning where they go in my garden even longer, and dreaming of these flowers in my garden until I can actually see them.

I want to thank everyone for this swap but especially Patty for all her hard work.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Today I received my seeds !!! I am very happy with what everyone sent and I received some wants that I wasn't sure would be filled...but they were! So here come the thank yous...

First, to Patty, for all your hard work-oh and for the prize for guessing closest to the number of seeds sent...I am excited to plant the Purple Sensation allium bulbs and I think the garden flag is pretty ! You did a great job hosting...I don't know how you do it!

A big thank you to Angie for being Patty's right-hand girl!
And for organizing the fun and games.

Thank you to Angela for her list and for sending me some great seeds.

Dirtdiggin sent me a large amount of requests- many COOL beans and a great variety of other kinds...Thank you!!

Chemocurl sent me many lovely seeds that I can't wait to plant- a big thank you!

Jaynine sent many lovely flower seeds-THANK YOU!

Thanks to alwaysagarden and the others who fulfilled special requests!

I would also like to thank just1morehosta for sending the cotton seeds along with a piece of paper detailing their interesting history.

Thank you, pumkingal, for including a recipe along with the pumpkin seeds you sent.

And thanks to everyone else who participated in this fun swap!!!

Merry Christmas, Patty, and all my fellow swappers! Ruthz, my DD is stranded in DFW tonight - flew in from London this a.m. No worries, she is snug in a local inn and will be with us tomorrow midday, when the weather clears both there and here (Huntsville AL).

I am about to go watch my all-time favorite childhood movie, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. My DH bought the DVD for me several years back; I was so touched. Connections with past, present, future - I am feeling very blessed.

Merry Christmas

Just a quick note to thank everyone for the amazing seeds that were sent in for me. I'm still not done going through and updating my list, but have been able to remove LOTS of wants already. I'm so excited to grow out a bunch of these wonderful plants....can't wait to see what my garden looks like next Summer.

Thank you again everyone and a huge big thank you to Patty, Angie and Angela! Your hard work has been very much appreciated :)

Have a wonderful Christmas day and rest of the Holiday Season.

Hugs to everyone :)

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

I received an early Christmas present yesterday. I opened my mailbox and there was my seed package packed full. Just finished inventorying everything and adjusted my "wants" list. I received so many great things including seeds for my chocolate garden, healing herb garden, culinary herb garden and much more.

Thanks to everyone who will be helping my garden grow this summer and I hope your Christmas was all you hoped it would be.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I received my seeds Christmas Eve. What a nice surprise! Thank you to everyone. Although I didn't mind duplicates, I received very few, if any. A big THANK YOU to Patty & Angie for all their hard work! You are the best!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hi every one,
Guess what i got!!!!Yep, you guessed it,my seeds came a few days ago,just as i was in the middle of writing you all, out electric went out,and was out for 3 1/2 days.Not a nice thing to have happen,you sure do learn how dependent you are on electric,when you don't have any.

My seeds you ask????Oh yes, the pack was bursting at the seams let me tell you.I have enough Morning Glories to last a life time,ha ha,i did not know there were so many different kinds,man, will my fence line be shinning this year,can't wait to get them all planted.
As soon as i got my seeds, i took some quiet time,and went through them all,i separated into piles, the ones that were of the same family,put the annuals into a pile,tomatoes in another, so that i am all ready now to WS,matter of fact, i sowed 15 containers the next day,thank God my soil was already wet, as we had no water,but i did it during the day,and only 15.I think i have done 30 so far.
My hubby said to thank you for sending in some beefsteak tomatoes,his favorite.When he saw all the seeds, he said,"Wow, think ya got enough seed by now"?ha ha, of course i said no.
I received so many seeds for butterflies, i think if any of you want butterflies in your yard this year, they will all be over here at my house,ha ha
I received several seeds i really wanted,how does one say thank you to such kindness?You all went above and beyond what i was even thinking.
I received a very nice camera for my birthday,i just need to learn now how to use it, i am hoping to post some beautiful pictures in the next few years.
I hope you all had Very Merry Christmas,and may this growing season be the best you have ever had.I know mine will be.
Salutations to all.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I received my envelope on Christmas Eve. As always it was packed full of fantastic seeds. I received several items that had been on my want list for over a year! I think I am going to need a bigger yard. Thank you all for sending all the great seeds! Patti thank you for all of your hard work, I can't imagine how many hours you spent separating the seeds. Angie thank you for helping Patti. I haven't started my winter sowing, but I can't wait to get started.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Once again, you two have totally outdone yourselves with this wonderful swap! I am totally blown away...and I've been thinking about how I could thank you appropriately for all of your hard work. The fact is...I just can't thank you enough! The effort you put into selecting seeds just for me is over and beyond what I would expect or even hope for...but as I said above, I am totally blown away!

You two are THE BEST at coordinating a big swap like this, and I truly appreciate all of the hard work that I know goes into it. This is one of the nicest Christmas presents I have received because not only does it reflect all of your hard work matching seeds to my want list, but it is also a very nice gift from all my GW friends who sent in seeds just for me! When these seeds are growing in my gardens next year...it will definitely be the gift that keeps on giving!

So thanks a million PATTYGROW and AGIRLSGIRL, and to everyone who sent seeds in for me.

Smiles and Happy Holidays! - Lisa

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I got my seeds!! I just love this swap, I always end up with so much of what I need for my garden the next year!
Thank you so much to Patty for all her hard work and to Angie and Angela as well. This is one swap I plan on joining every year. Thank you also to all the wonderful gardeners that participated!!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Guess WHAT??? The Southwest Airlines' commercial that Hannah and I were in is airing right now during the Giants' game that is on! We're in the one where the guy walks on the wing of the plane. Then, he's talking about making the little girl smile that has cancer and how it makes it all worth it. Right after that, you see Hannah and I at the top right of the screen when he says, "This is who I am."

Wow! It's finally live on the air!!!!! We're on TV!!!! I just HAD to share this with you all. If you get to see it, try to pause it on that last scene otherwise it goes by way too fast for you to hardly notice us. Please, email me if you get to see it. I'm so excited!!!!

Blessings,
Angela

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Well, my seeds were mailed last Tuesday. I told myself if they didn't arrive by today I would have to post that they were missing. But there's no need: my seeds arrvived today! Yippee!

Thanks Patty, Angie, and everyone who sent me seeds. I'd say my want list is a lot shorter now, but I think I add to it every day.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

YES I finally got my seeds they have been sitting in the post office since thursday but I didn't have a chance to get them until today. And let me just say WOW. You ladies and gentlemen(if there are any out there in this swap) has really out done yourselves. Thank you so much for the wide variety of seeds. I will be changing my want list now that is for sure there are so many that I wanted and many that I did not know I wanted until I got them. hehe

It is so hard to just name one person as special. Since in my book everyone who sent seeds to someone is special. Thank you patty and angela and angie for doing this swap I really appreciate it.


Paula


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Paula, that is so true about everyone in this swap being special!

Just to give you an idea about how many cool things I received, last year I wintersowed about 125 containers, and after receiving my seeds from this swap, my grow list for '10 is already up to 175, and I'm sure it will get even longer before it's over with. I have no idea where I will plant it all though ...

Thanks again to everyone!!!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Thanks for looking for it, Toni. I found out that it's airing on the Fox channel during most, if not all, the pro football games going on, so there's plenty more games to be able to see the commercial. Oh, I really hope that it airs up north, but since Southwest Airlines is mostly in the southern states, it may not. :-(

Blessings,
Angela

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Oh NO we are big with SW airlines here!! With our major airport being seatac, we have huge numbers of SW Airlines going out and coming in. I would imagine it depends on each city and amount of airlines coming in.

We'll keep watching for you Angelady...I'm sure well get a glimpse soon ;)

Take care...

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I got my package today and WOW!! I can't believe the number and variety of seeds that I got. Hubby said, "Those are all for YOU?" Thank you so much to all of you and especially Patty for hosting this!! I'm especially excited by the garlic that I got from Toni (dirtdiggin). The only thing is that the labels got wet and I can't read what variety of garlic they are. One says Something Purple? and the other I can't read at all. Can Toni or anyone enlighten me? I'm going to go outside and start planning on where to put all of this :)


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Hey, slo_garden,

I had some smudged garlic labels also. I've deciphered mine to read "Italian Purple" and "Ontario Purple Trillium". Hope this helps.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Angelady, I'd love to see the commercial, but all the games my mom watches are on ESPN. I told her to yell if it comes on, though.

It's so nice to read of everyone's excitement. I have been keeping myself distracted by looking at the Hazzard's catalog and adding things to my wants list!

My seeds arrived today!!. A beautiful big bag of seeds! Thanks everyone for their generous efforts to make this a fantastic swap.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Slo - There is Purple Italian which I'm sure is what the first one is...unless they are bulbils. If they are cloves, it could be Silver Rose, Shilla, Extra Hardy German and Symphony. It could be any one of the later. Are they cloves or bulbils? Are the cloves large or small? Elongated or short and fat? And what is the color? If you could describe them I can probably tell you what type they are.

Toni

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

My post earlier post disappeared. I am getting very excited awaiting my seeds as well. Patty is a wonderful hostess!
stage_rat, I just placed a seed order to Hazzard's too. I wanted to make sure I took advantage of the coupon before it expires tomorrow night.
Have a great New Year everyone!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Toni,

This reminds me of the game that you all were playing (trying to identify the plant from clues)when we were all waiting for our seeds. I agree that the first one is Italian Purple. That would make sense with what I can read off the label. As far as the second one: they are cloves and appear to be medium-sized in all aspects. The color is hard to determine as the skins are coming off and they are starting to sprout. I don't know how to post pictures on here (Yes, I know I really should learn), so maybe I could email you photos? If we can't figure out what they are, no biggie. I'll grow them and eat them regardless :)

Megan


 o
RE: Garlic ID

Also, I got some Silver Rose from another player and they are thinner and more elongated than these mystery ones, so we can eliminate that one. I'm excited about trying all of these new varieties!


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Slo - they are either shilla or symphony. If the cloves are about the same size as the Purple Italian, then they are Symphony and if they are larger, they are Shilla.

LOL now I can wipe my forehead lol. Hope that helps :) So you have a hardneck and a softneck variety.


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

They are about the same size, so Symphony it is. Thanks so much!!


 o
RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Figured it was Symphony cause it was already sprouting. :)

Good luck with them....yummmy home grown garlic lol.

Take care.

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

ok - of course I can say more...

I received so many wonderful seeds, I can't wait for winter sowing to begin!! When I have winter sowing going, I can start the veggies and herbs!! I received lettuces and herbs I've never heard of!!

Ya'll - for next year's swap, I'll take photos of these 2010 plants that I know will be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

Thanks Patty, Angela and Angie and participants!!

Happy Gardening -

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Yay! My seeds arrived today too. DD and I had a great time sorting through them. She's picked a few for herself, and wanted to plant them NOW! LOL. Maybe I'll have her sow some milk jugs tomorrow.
I know my wishlist is full of rarer plants, so thank you so much to everyone who sent in seeds for me. What a wonderful swap!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I got a most excellent package of seeds today! I was almost finished with the list of tomato seeds I need to purchase, but now I may not order any at all. Thanks for all of the great Sunflowers, Zinnias and all of the other plants I requested as well.
Great job as usual Patty. I look forward next time.
Happy New Year!

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

I received my package of seeds today. Quite a surprise as I wasn't expecting to get them yet. I am delighted with the selection, and I really have to say a sincere thanks to Patty and Angie for the time and consideration they gave to putting my package together. It is very much appreciated. And I want to thank everyone who participated in the swap for the seeds they sent specifically for me and in general. I don't want to really single anybody out, BUT... I have to give one very special thanks to the person who sent the Irish Fleabane - you know who you are! That was an awesome surprise and a wonderful gift. Thank you.

Happy New Year to all - with wishes for a safe, healthy, prosperous and lucky! 2010...

Hi All,

I was lying in bed last night with a stomach virus when my husband, coming in from 7-11 with some ginger ale, delivered the package sent from Patty.Going through all the wonderful seeds sent in for me, I was overwhelmed with everyone's great generosity. The people on GW are the best! When things are not going well, all I have to do is log onto my computer to cheer myself up. Thanks so much to Patty and to Angie, as well as all the participants in this swap. My memorial garden for my dad will be beautiful, thanks to all of you. If anyone wants anything I was going to send in for the swap, please just shoot me an E-Mail and I will send them out to you.

Happy and Healthy New Year to you all.

Amy

RE: Part 10: pattygrow5's WLOMWLS

Just have to sayand will be posting a well deserved review for Patty and AngieI am beyond words with this swap.

Yes I posted how happy I was with the package received, but more importantly, Ive also received communication back from many that I sent packages in for, who received the items I sent in for them. While last years swap was wonderful as well, Im even more impressed with the outcome this year. Im so glad we were able to post special requests on items sent inand they arrived to the participant they were intended for. The integrity behind the Hostess and Co-Hostess is beyond anything anyone could hope for in a RR swap.

I know what kind of an undertaking this swap was, so my hats off to Patty for her incredible methods of dealing with such an amazing amount of participants and seed packages. The attention to detail was impeccable.

If this swap continues, which I hope it goes on for years to come, you can count on my participation and promotion of it.

Thank you so much for everythingI cant offer enough thanks to Hostess / Co-Hostess and Participants, for all the wonderful choices sent in to me.

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL AND SAFE New year!

Toni
