HAVE: Wanna make a lightning trade of '09 mater seeds?

I put this already in the tomato forum, not realizing it was supposed to be in the exchange forum...I can still do a few trades this's snowing out!

Hi there,
I'm still "winter sowing" my tomatoes this week and since it's plenty cold here in WI, there's probably time for a quick trade so that we can try even more types this year!

For this trade I'd prefer:
1. trades of 4 varieties or more with 1 to 3 people
2. to trade about 6 seeds per trade, but more if you need/want arrange trade by e-mail on Monday and
4. post seeds no later than Wednesday, Apr 22
I'm easy to work with. Let's make this work for both of us. I always try to be generous and prompt. I honestly think 4 seeds per trade would be enough for me, as I have excellent germination usually, but I thought others would probably want more, so please just tell me what you prefer and if I have them, that's fine! I'm sure I have at least 10 of each of those listed below.

All of these seeds below were packed for the 2009 season. Most are from Jung's in Wisconsin and I have had excellent germination with their seeds. I'd prefer 2009 seeds, but if you are having good germination with something on my list, just let me know the year so that I can make a choice. I have a few nice older seeds, as well, that can be offered, which I will make note of.

Thanks to all who responded. We've completed the trading for now. I may be open to making large trades again in July August or after this year's harvest. I discovered that I prefer larger trades (8 or more varieties.) Have a good mater season everyone!

mary4b - I never got a reply to my email so I assume the trade is a no go?
