If you contacted me, and got no response, or didn't get your seeds in a long while, recontact me.
I was swamped with emails, etc, and with so many requests, emails, IDs, waiting for SASEs, etc, your inquiry, might have been overlooked.
Today, the Postal lady charged me $2.50, to mail an ENVELOPE, and she called an ENVELOPE a"PACKAGE" just because it wouldn't fit through her letter slot template.
So, because it was a micron too thick to slide through, she needs to charge me $1.50 more?
So, because of this, people wanting anything other than tomato, or lettuce seeds, will have to send $2.50, to cover these inflated shipping fees.
She also wanted to charge me $9.95, to mail a 2 pound box Priority Mail.
I'll send these, no trade needed, to anyone who wants to send STAMPS ONLY & ADDRESS LABEL\-\[address written on a piece of paper, or printed out\] or just the correct address written in readable print on the sent envelope.
(I have many cards, envelopes, bubble envelopes & bubble wrap here, that need used up), or will trade if you want.
When sending stamps, please include your Gardenweb ID, email address, seed request, and address label. (I've gotten envelopes with just a stamped envelope in them, and some real name, that I can't link to an ID or email, and so have no clue what they wanted, nor no way to contact them to find out.
Paypal IS an option to get postage costs to me, if you don't want to bother sending/getting stamps/envelopes, or mailing them.
It also saves the usage of one envelope, and stamp cost on your end. Please paypal as a "personal" "gift", to save on paypal fees.
I will NOT answer any requests, from now on, with NO contact info listed (the 1st post helps newbies know how to set up contact info on here),
OR an email with random characters like: firstname.lastname@example.org, OR derogatory email/ID NAMES, LIKE "email@example.com, etc- THESE WILL BE SEEN AS PHISHING ATTEMPTS.
I'm also not going to answer non specific seed requests, like "I would love some seeds". I'm not going to send 10 emails, trying to pry which EXACT ones you want, out of your responses.
It's a simple thing, even for those typing on phones/Ipads or whatever, to simply state..."I would like.."
" toms only/hybrids ok"
"3 T2T(true to type) toms only"
"all toms/NO hybrids",
or list out what SPECIFIC ones you want...
"Copia, & Lettuce"
"no toms/Lettuce&cantaloupe only", etc.
I use "Occupant" as a mailing name, for similar reasons. I get mail fine.
IF THIS POST IS STILL HERE, I STILL HAVE THE SEEDS LISTED.
I change the numbers of available packs, and erase any unavailable ones, as availability dwindles, now that we can easily edit posts!
I would prefer the return envelope for 1-8 seed packs (TOMATOES & LETTUCE ONLY) to have 1-2 first class stamps on it. (1 49 cent stamp, and extra for hand cancel, depending on who I get at the Post Office)
For 9-15 seed packs, (FOR ALL OTHER SEEDS IN ADDITION TO LETTUCE & TOMATOES) just send 5 stamps, worth about $2.50, (for $2.09/$2.25 postage+hand cancel) and I'll reuse a bubble envelope here. Any extra stamps, will be sent back.
If you want to do a trade, that's fine too,
You can look at my exchange list, I really need Purple Beauty Pepper, Blood Red Turnip, red cabbage, lima beans, Berkeley Tie Dye HEART, and Rutabegas especially.
My seeds are raised veganically vegan/organic in a permaculture no waste method.
I'm not certified, just ethical.
I don't use any commercial, animal based soil amendments.
I do use pet rabbits who stay inside, and 6 little goldfish who stay outside except in the winter, as fertilizer factories.
The fish keep my water catchment tubs free of mosquito larva, and infuse "nutrients" into the rainwater.
The rabbits eat all kinds of vegan waste, baked potato skins, turnip, carrot, parsnip, beet leaves, banana peels, weeds, untreated grass, seed stalks, blackberry leaves, and even some flowers, and rose clippings. They are more efficient in reducing biomass, into usable fertilizer, than a compost pile.
I have some tomato seeds...20+ seeds per pack
1\. Copia \- red stripes on a yellow background ( some unpacked available as of this posting\-GETTING LIMITED\-maybe 3 packs left)
2\. Amur Tiger tomato. \- dwarf \- grows to about 4 feet tall \- bears red and gold striped tomatoes, the size of ping pong balls or larger.
When the green stripes turn gold, they are fully ripe. unpacked\-don't know how many packs they'll make.
It's best to harvest this tomato before it's ripe, to prevent cracking due to environmental changes.
3\. Sub Arctic Plenty\-Dwarf plant, about 3 feet tall, early fruiting, small, red, irregular shaped tomatoes. SEE PHOTO. unpacked\-don't know how many packs they'll make.
4\. HYBRID tomato for growing and eating \- was medium orange \- crossed with a red hybrid to make red\-orange hand ball sized tomatoes, on plants that keep the parents wilt/wispy/droopy foliage \- plants are not sick \- This plant is the one of the first I grew and started learning to save seeds on \- the parent plant was offered as "open pollinated", but they didn't tell me it crosses easily, so won't produce true to type offspring. (100 packs available as of this posting)
Since I saved seeds to it, I don't want to just throw them away.
So if you know people wanting to grow for food, who aren't seed savers, these might work.
Since I've learned what I'm doing, I won't be working with any hybrids any more.
And some other veggie seeds...
5\. Cantalope \- Hale's Best \- unpacked \- limited amount available 15 seeds per pk
6\. Sparkler White Tip Radish\-\-unpacked 1/4 TEAspoon per pk
7\. Acorn squash seeds from squash grown from a store bought organic acorn squash. (I used them for a growing trial\-were organic store bought seeds viable, if so, could I grow them).RESULT:yes, they were viable, and I did get some squash from them. unpacked 10 seeds per pk
Short season here, no greenhouse, row covers, cold frames, but I got 4 squash to grow. I hope to get more to grow next year.
8\. Lettuce\-Mesclun mix, may contain\-arugula, red russian kale, chervil, raddichio, bibb, red romaine, endive, & salad bowl green. unpacked\-1/4th TEAspoon per pk
9\. Red Russian Kale\-1/4 TEAspoon per pk
10\. Cherry Belle Radish ~somewhat limited availability
11\. I do have some beets, probably Detroit Dark red. but if you want these, I'm going to ask, that you send 5 stamps and they'll be sent in a reused bubble envelope I have here, along with any other seeds you want. Beet seeds are pretty thick to send in an envelope.
One postal worker here, looks at me suspiciously when I try to send poufy envelopes with bubble wrap in them. "is this correspondence?" She asks, then says "do you want to repack it to make it flatter, or pay 21 cents more?" (She has since upped the additional fee to $1.50 more, and calls envelopes "packages".)
She tries to push the envelopes through a slot meant to gauge MACHINED envelope thicknesses, NOT hand canceled ones.
She doesn't hand cancel them in front of me, but says she will, but I doubt she actually does that.
The other "nice" postal lady, just weighs and hand stamps them, with no interrogation. I have to figure out when the nice one works, and go that day only.
I quit going to the Post Office in town because of the half hour or longer lines caused by the interrogations, and trying to find any reason to charge people more, or make them repack their stuff.
If you want all 13, send 5 stamps only, (worth $2.50), I'll reuse a bubble envelope here. If the postage is less than that, I'll send extra stamps back to you.
$2.50 ./. 14 \= 18 cents a pack~pretty cheap in these times, for 14 types of seeds, to start your garden!
I can send 8 mini packs in ONE single stamped envelope.
