new: ~fall seed round robin~

Debra Andruska
17 years ago

I would love to host a FALL Seed Robin.. I have plenty of seeds to share, plus have received so many in trades (robin boxes) that I can't use. Who's interested? Please post here.

Also, let's include some small 'gifts' (just to add to the fun). I'll include a seperate large ziplock bag for these items, plus a ziplock for the seeds (largest size-gallon). Gifts should be small, votives/candles, lotions, gloves, soaps, notepads, permanent markers, plant spikes, decorative things to put in pots, macrame hangers, plant markers, suncatchers, windchimes, anything really-homemade or store purchased.

Please take out whatever you want, but be thoughtful and replace with the same amount or more.

I'll use a flat-rate priority box (to keep costs reasonable). Please post when you receive the box, and when it's going out. And use delivery confirmation. I don't want the box to disappear.

Start going through your seeds...and collecting more! ;)The box will start it's flight on Sept. 4th. (MONDAY).

I'll post the flight list the last week of August (28th-Monday). This will give plenty of time to sign up, plus collect seeds, go through what you have.

Let the fun begin~


Thanks so much!

Deb

    chemically sensitive robin, a cool idea. I may take you up on it.

    I have very few seeds though, so I need to be creative to find a way to stock up the box. Maybe donations? I'll figure it out.

    What happens to all the seeds left over when the box returns to the host? I am thinking a veggie/herb robin would interest me. I am not much into the exotic flowers. I do like the wild native sort though. Don't be surprised to see a robin started by me, one of these days.

    I have a chemical sensitive web site. If anyone has mcs, there are lots of resources listed to help you out. The link is on my member page. I hope it is ok to mention this. I am not selling anything.

    Newbie Seed Savers: the Fall 'Round Robin' Swaps

    Q

    Comments (3)
    Thank you so much for this advice. I just started doing the WS method last winter with seeds I had already purchased so I didn't get in on any of the newbie offers - wanted the seed to go to someone who would use it. Then I started reading up on the seed swaps and wanted to be sure I would have something to trade this next season. So thanks for the warning. BTW - I had a very successful spring. My poppies finally germinated - never had that happen before !!! I'm thinking next year, I will WS most of my tomatoes, peppers and basil too, besides the flowers.

    NEW: 'Seed-Hot-Cocktails' Round Robin

    Q

    Netta, The subject line is offputting to people who don't like round robins - in fact the only reason I opened the post was because you wrote it. Why don't you go ahead and make that new update thread, but put the word SWAP in the header (subject line) and then make a last call. In other words, extend the deadline until Nov 1 or 2nd using the word SWAP instead of Round Robin and I bet you'd get 1/2 dozen more takers. Just a thought... Lime

    Nancy and Nica, welcome to garden web. There are lots of things going on here and we are a friendly bunch.
    You can start getting ready for action by posting your have/want lists on your member page and telling a little about yourself and your gardens. That helps everyone know what things they might be able to swap with you.
    Have fun and happy swapping.

    The robin went out today! Summer, it's on the way! USPS tracking 0305 0830 0004 1527 2202.

    This swap is closed, sorry to those who signed up here, but information never made it to my personal email. The robin is only going to those on the previous list. If you sent your message/information through the garden web, it never made it to me.

    I'll post a new thread- "Fall Seed Robin's Flight Path"

    See you there! Post all new messages on the new thread.
