    THIS is what it looks like now. I left my pitiful looking tomatoes I need some green ones to pickle.

    It wasn't easy cleaning all that up. With all this rain we have been getting here in NC it is just awful trying to keep up with it all.

    SWAP UPDATE COMING.

    PLEASE READ:

    The amount of the seeds depends on the size of the seeds and I would also say how much you wish to share.
    Big seeds I would say 10 depending on the type, like if it is pumpkin for example and you have the amount to share then please put in about 10. 10 is a good number because it gives you a good start on certain seeds such as beans. The purpose is not to make someone's garden but help them make a start on it. If they start with 10 bean or other plants than next year they should have plenty to grow.
    Small seeds just guess on those but use your judgement and give the amount you would feel comfortable receiving.
    On the other hand, I would say if it is something on our want list then we'd be happy with any amount, more or less right?
    If you want to check peoples want list and share something on their list with them, please feel free to do that.
    I only chose the Top 10 because I figured it was an easy amount and most people could come up with 10 things they really wanted and if they only have 10 packs to share then that's all they have to worry about.
    I am not making this a rules only swap, just wing it folks.
    Most of you are seasoned traders you know what to do and as long as you are fair with the seed amount you send in I am happy too.

    Again I will try to send you back as many seeds packets as you send in, remember however, THIS will depend on the amount that comes in. You will get at least 10.
    IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE THE SAME AMOUNT YOU MAILED IN LET ME KNOW.

    WANTED: Packaging & Mailing Seeds: Top 10 Methods

    Q

    Comments (2)
    I've received seeds from trades in all the methods & styles mentioned above. They all appear to be successful and allow seedaholics to choose the method that works best for them. Plastic baggies - I've found what works best for me are the smaller 2" x 3" zip-envelopes, also available at Walmart if you hit it when they're in stock, 100 @ $1.00. If I see them late in the season, I buy multiple packages. I use sticky labels, also available from Walmart, that can be printed from my computer. I include botanical name, common name, cultivar name, USDA hardiness zone, height, light & moisture requirements, bloom time & color along with any extra pertinent plant or growing information. If there's room, I'll include year harvested in brackets. Before mailing, I Google the seed name and do a little research so the information on the label is current, however I sometimes wonder if that information changes as time goes by. Mailing seeds - I use bubble mailers of different sizes but usually the smaller 5" x 7" size. Bubble mailers I receive get torn apart/cut up or reused as is if they're not too travel-damaged. For single trades I'll tape the seed envelope to a piece of recycled bubble envelope and tuck it inside a standard envelope with "PLEASE DO NOT MACHINE - SEEDS" on the front in the lower left-hand corner. After 2 years of sending seeds via mail in this way, I've not heard of anyone receiving crushed seeds. When harvesting seeds over the course of the season, I set them in paper bowls or spread them on paper platters that are placed on shelf units inside the garage to dry. This also allows any crawlies that may have taken up residence inside the seedpods to depart the premises of their own free will. Once thoroughly dry, seeds are stored in small plastic salad dressing cups with clear, snap-on lids I'm able to buy from the cafeteria where I work. They last from year to year and are re-used. Generally I try to not have seeds leftover from year to year despite evidence that they remain viable for many years. This thread is a good idea and hopefully we'll hear from plenty of folks with other ideas/methods for seed preservation and sharing.

    My seeds were delayed in the mail so I re-mailed them as soon as I could, which was past the deadline, and Willy said it wasn't a problem. Shortly thereafter, I received an envelope stuffed with many wonderful, different kinds of seeds. Thanks again for all the work you put into this Willy. The way did your swap was very nice, and many people seemed to have liked it, and I would like to host a swap similar to this one but for ornamental (indian) corn, gourds/squashes, pumpkin seeds, and any other seeds that can be grown and used for Fall decorations next year. Thanks again for the wonderful seeds and inspiration, Willy. ~LilyLoverLynn~

    If this is a problem for anyone please let me know and I will tell her she is not eligible to at the moment.

    I just harvested the dinnerplate Hibiscus you are looking for. They bloomed white with a red center and dark almost red. I also have watermelons and Dino Kale I see otherslooking for. Truly, the posts are too long and I would never remember who is looking for what. If this is supposed to be our 10 most wanted, are we supposed to send in 10 pkts?

    Aqua,

    I see that their a few people who need more time for their plants to finish going to seed, I myself am fine in waiting if others are to start this swap by a few weeks, maybe late september to give those a chance to finish harvesting seeds. Please let us know, I am holding out several more days before mailing my package to see if anyone else gets on board or if you push the date out.

    Thanks,

    lindamarie you may send in any seeds you have others may want. IF you only send in 10 it is fine as well.
    If you are having trouble with the list just look at the updates I post and you can see what others are wanting from that.

    I will not be mailing the seeds packages back out until the last week or so of Sept. IF you have seeds that are not ready by Sept. 14 but WILL be ready by the end of Sept. then feel free to wait until they are ready. IF I only have a few packages to go through that is fine BUT I would like for the majority to be in no later than Sept. 20th.

    Alana, send when you are ready. I appreciate you joining in on this swap so very much!

    OHHHH, Vina, you gonna be doing some MAJOR swapping with all those seeds huh? LOL

    I will be posting an updated list later on. I have been busy, can in for a little break now and thought I would come check on the swap.

    Again, let me just say I appreciate EVERYONE so much who have joined this swap. I can't wait to go through the seeds. I am excited to see what comes in...I am sure many of you will have your wants fulfilled!

    Ok, back to work. I will update this list later today!!!

    Hi all! Been meaning to post here for a while, but it seems there's always something conspiring to divert me anymore. If it isn't diabetic neuropathy and its minions, it's my MIL's medical problems, my SIL's frustrations, overall negative attitude, and lack of empathy, it's our autistic son's recent mystery gastric affliction with attendant vomiting and inability to keep down his meds (can we say "grand mal seizure") and yet another ambulance ride to the emergency room for IV meds, etc. - Yeah,...it definitely hasn't been boring around here lately, although we absolutely, totally wish it were otherwise. Anymore, Elly & I are thinking our son, Roy, may very well be suffering from constipation. Headache, stomach ache, nausea, lack of appetite, etc. Hospital tests couldn't find anything specific. No high temperature or elevated white blood cell count. --shrug-- To add to this, I have yet to properly acknowledge at least 4 wonderful individuals who have traded with me lately. OTOH, our container grown "Little Finger" carrots are doing nicely, and we've harvested some nice shallots, not to mention a continuous bounty of "Ever Bearing" and "Alpine" strawberries. So, I guess, it all kind of evens out, maybe, in a weird sort of way. - Looking forward to fullfilling the seed wishes of others! Totally jazz's me! :)

    Welcome to all who have joined recently.

    WOW cryptid ALL that is rough, don't know how you manage to keep your sanity much less keep up with gardening too.
    WOW is all I can say.

    leilahamaya I got your package, it was open when it arrived. I don't think anything fell out of it but the tape looked like it had gotten stuck in their sorter and it was all bunched up and not sticky anymore.

    I am going to start a new thread in the morning. I have been running all day Wednesday and I am so sleepy at the moment I can hardly hold my eyes open and I can't sleep either. I have to keep correcting so ummm yeah, I will be waiting til I am awake to do anything that requires thinking.

    I am SOOOOO disappointed those are my favorite annual and they have just not done well for me the last couple of years!

    DOMEHOME! I just got your package IT WAS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU! It is so nice to open a package where the person followed the instructions well!
    It makes it so easy for me!

    Ok, I am going to start another thread with the update in it :)

    Cryptid - So sorry to hear about all the problems you and your family are suffering. I have had gastric trouble myself for over 6 months, the gastroenterologist just prescribed me acid blockers which have some scary side effects. So I ended up consulting my chiropractor / nutritionist. He did allergy testing on me and a barrage of other tests too. He seems to be helping. Consider finding a good homeopath, they look at things a little differently.
    Aqua - Why thank-you. Just trying to be a good trader.
